We've been pretty quiet about this since Game Update 2.2.2 went live, and the reason is because I was tracking down exactly what we did and why the change for Ashara got missed!
Essentially, we got the note about Jorgan's fur, but the full extent of the change/fix was not properly captured. However, the Patch Notes have been updated now to correctly reflect that he, Ashara, and over a dozen other companions will now appear properly. The note is:
The following Companion Characters will now have their skin/fur appear consistent when not wearing armor:
This update has been in the works for quite some time, and it was prompted by player feedback. At the time, it was mostly about Ashara, so it's not shocking that you guys noticed the change with her. (Why aren't you putting Vik into the skimpy stuff, eh?!)
Thanks very much for the original feedback and for pointing out the error in the patch notes!
