    On the off chance that you diddn't accidentally FUS RO DAH lyida off the Throat of the world and spend seven hours looking for the body and are now taking anti depressants to stop yourself from suicide, is it possible to get another lydia if yours is dead, or resurrect her permanently on a console?

    Lydia sucks nuts. She is almost always a low level follower because you meet her at a low level.

    It turns out I'm glad I "lost" her. I hated her attitude.

    Annekke Crag-Jumper is turning out to be a good friend. She's happy enough to carry my stuff and keeps up with me pretty well. I crafted and gave her some good ebony armor and some nice glass weapons. On one quest I found two staffs, one of Frost and one of Fireballs. I gave them to Anne to carry and she started using the staffs. She really handy to have watching your back. I only lost her once and she found her way back to my house on her own.

    Lydia has character. You really think i loved her and married her (in game) because of her level?

    NO!
    I spent a day getting 100 pickpocket so i could take her clothes and have her walk around with me naked.
    You need to be creative with your followers. They are glorified pack mules if that. Lydia was different....

    For the Win.

    May I suggest Jordis the Sword-Maiden? The housecarl available in Solitude? Very similar in build and such to Lydia, but Blonde? Equally willing to prance around nude, and this time through a magnificent tri-level home complete with lots of counter tops, chairs, secret rooms, stacked boxes, plus a larger and more luxurious bed, and magic "enhancement" potions abound.

    Not that I'm truly suggesting anything...or in fact even that I've given much consideration to the advantages of trading up from-

    Here she is. Waiting on you, I presume. And growing impatient with her clothing as we watch:

    Uh no. Followers level with you. She does fine by me in full enchanted Legendary Ebony armor, sword, shield and bow with a Ring and Necklace of Remedy. Her sword is a Sword of Leeching so between that and her ring and necklace I never have to heal her.

    She one and two hits a lot of mobs. Sometimes I let her take care of the bad guys while I check my email. :D

    My Lydia got killed in a Thief attack INSIDE Dragonsreach. I held them off as long as I could, then ran away while healing. I found Lydia's dead body later. The GUARDS DID NOTHING! I will avenge her!!! ROAR!!!!!!!!!!!! FUS RO DAH!!!!!!

    You can also make a brand new Lydia using PC console commands but that might make things buggy.

    Sorry to spoil your proud moment, but as a matter of fact a follower you meet later on will almost always be loads better than your previous leveling with you or not

    Based on what? Your ego? :rolleyes:

    The fact is that on the PC you can check all of a followers stats and there is no appreciable difference in the stats of followers that share the same primary skills. Some followers may have better default equipment than others but that hardly makes them better since all of their equipment is inferior to anything you can equip them with at later stages in the game unless you have no appreciable smithing and enchanting skill.

    One time, to amuse myself, I butted one of the bugged Alik'r Warriors that hangs out at the entrance of Whiterun with my bow and when the Whiterun guards attacked me I just sat back and Lydia killed them....all of them. She kills mobs so quickly and efficiently she'll often kill close to half of a group that we're fighting on her own. How many of your followers can do better?

    That may be, I was happy with Lydia, but this thread was about finding a replacement for Lydia, or in an off case, resurrect her.

    I miss Lydia too.
