The Elder Scrolls Online: Game Add-ons

The Elder Scrolls Online, for the normal player, does not have any game mods that changes its gameplay due to it being an MMORPG, however there are a whole host of game add-ons that enhance (and if you use too many hinder) that experience within the game.  One way of managing these add-ons is by using the Minion game add-on manager that you can get from the ESOUI website.

Listed below are the add-ons that are used in ESO that is streamed on the IanDLive channel on Twitch.  The list itself is split into two - the add-ons themselves and the library add-ons that are required to run them, if you are copying the full list it makes it easier to add the libraries all in one go as opposed to finding which add-on requires what library, but the add-on list does show the required libraries so if you are just wanting to add one or two of them then you have the info that you need.  Just on a side note, when you have an add-on installed within the game and it says that it is out of date, it doesn't necessarily mean that it is not working, just that the version numbers in the mod have not changed with the game as there has been nothing to update the add-on with.

Dolgubon's Lazy Writ Crafter

Do you want to get your character to being a master crafter??  This add-on is literally a game changer as it will craft the items for you as required by the writs, saving so much time - it's quicker than changing characters!!!  Does not cover provisioning or alchemy crafting, and if the main goal is for Master Writ crafting, using WritWorthy in conjunction is recommended.

  • LibStub
  • LibAddonMenu
  • LibLazyCrafting

ESO Master Recipe List

Search or track all cooking or furniture recipes in ESO, and will also help by identifying which recipes are required for the provisioning writs.  Also allows you to mark individual ingredients to search for if you need them in your crafting bag.

  • LibAddonMenu

ESO Master Recipe List Alt Format

Makes a couple of changes to the ESO Master Recipe List add-on so that your character list is the same as it is in the character selection screen and characters that don't know a particular recipe are listed at the end in red.

  • ESO Master Recipe List

FCM Quest Tracker

A fully customizable quest tracker that can sit at the side of your screen and can be set up exactly how you want it, showing as much or as little information as required.

 

Greymind Quick Slot Bar

An additional complimentary ability bar that shows what items you have slotted ing the quickslot radial menu.  Customizations can be set per character or account wide.

 

Harven's AS to LAM Adaptor

Similar to CustomCompassPins, this is essentially a library that acts as an adaptor between "Harven's Add-on Settings" showing up in the menu and adding them to the LibAddonMenu settings within the game, putting all add-on settings in the same place.

 

Harven's Quest Journal

Have you ever thought that ESO lost some of that 'feel' of a fantasy with the quest log being in just normal menus?  If you did, then with the quest journal you can have all of your missions and quests listed in a quest book, adding to your immersion satisfation within the game.

 

HarvestMap

HarvestMap shows resource nodes, fishing spots and chests on the map and within the 3D world.  I personally find the 3D pins distracting and get in the way, but they are there as an option if you want them.

 

Idle Animations

Give your character a little personality ('cause persoanlity goes a long way) by giving it the ability to perform certain animations if you have been stood for a while.  It just makes things that you are not just standing there all of the time if you are AFK, etc.

 

Incombat Wear Helmet

Did you spend a good amount of time in the character creation screen, getting your toon to look just right, only to find that you are wearing a helmet/hood all of the time and not seeing that hairstyle?  This add-on will automatically put the helmet on when you go into combat and off again when out of it, but there is a cooldown on the action, so not always on or off if the battle is very short.

 

Inventory Grid View

Do you have a large inventory?  Sick of the 11-12 line view that you get with the standard display?  If you're not using the advanced filters (and why not?) then this add-on will change from the text view to a grid view letting you see what you have at a glance.

 

Item Saver

Lose that important item in your inventory no longer with Item Saver, which allows you to highlight thos important weapons/items that you don't want to lose.

 

Lootdrop, Continued (All in One)

When you have auto-loot turned on in the game, things go straight to your bag and you don't know what they are.  This add-on shows you what you have picked up, the quantity and rarity of the items in a window that fades away.

 

LoreBooks

Make advancing within the Mages Guild easier by locating all of the lore books that are scattered across Tamriel.

  • LibAddonMenu
  • LibCustomMenu
  • LibGPS2
  • LibMapPins
  • CustomCompassPins

Lost Treasure

Have you just found or been given a treasure map or a crafting survey location?  No idea where it is??  This is for you, as soon as the map or survey turns up in your inventory it will place a marker on your map for where it is. 

 

LUI Extended

Possibly the most graphically altering add-on that appears on this list.  This is the add-on that changes up amost of the user interface, changing your health/stamina/magicka bars, giving prompts in battle, showing how much you are hitting for and being hit.  The number of things that this add-on can do are too much to list here, check it out, it's worth it.

  • LibMediaProvider
  • LibAddonMenu 

Master Merchant

Are you part of a trading guild in the game and want to see what the best sellers are or do you just want to get deal that you can when you are trying to get the items from various guild kiosks.  Master Merchant analyses the sales and can provide sales info and flag up the best offers in the list for you.

 

Merlin the Enchanter

Create and destroy glyphs with ease with this add-on, as it allow you to easily identify what you can create and what you still need to learn.  It also allows you to destroy those collected glyphs without having to go through each of them one at a time.

 

MiniMap by Fyrakin

A simple add-on, but has so many uses playing the game; this adds a small minimap to the UI so that you don't have to constantly be going between the world map and the game when you are trying to orientate where you are.  A staple thing in many MMO's but not in ESO, this is literally an essential.

 

Pet Dismiss

Playing as a sorceror or as a warden?  This is a quick and simple add-on that allows you to dismiss your 'pets' at the press of a single button.

 

Potion Maker (for Alchemy Crafting)

Allows you to filter the potions that you can make with the reagents that you have, this add-on makes life a little easier when putting a potion together and also has the option there to assist with the alchemy writs.

 

Quest Map

It may sometimes not seem like much, but have you ever found yourself looking for where a quest is given?  This add-on adds pins to the world map for completed and uncompleted quests, as well as the ones that you are yet to start.

  • LibMapPins
  • LibAddonMenu 

Rare Fish Tracker

Fishing... a realxing pastime that can earn a fair amount of rewards in the game - Rare Fish Tracker keeps track of what you have caught and lists what is still to catch in each of the zones.

 

Research Assistant

If you have ever wondered whether you need to keep hold of a certain item if you need to research its trait, or to easily identify ornate items to boost your crafting then this is your add-on.  It adds small icons to the inventory list to show items with traits that you have learnt, yet to learn, have duplicates or, are ornate or just need selling.  A real bag space saver!!

  • LibResearch
  • LibAddonMenu

Roomba - Guildbank Stacker

You can stack things in your own inventory, but your guild bank is something different entirely.  This add-on automates the moving of items so that they can be stacked to save space within your guild bank if you are full or are close to it.

  • LibSavedVars 

SkyShards

Quick, simple and to the point - add map pins to the map for all of the SkyShard locations.

Votan's Fish Fillet

Another nice simple add-on, when you have a copious amounts of fish in your inventory following a fishing session, this fillets the stack in a single command into the usable fish ingredient.

 

Votan's Fisherman

Displays information regarding the fishing spot that you are interacting with once you have already caught something there.

 

WritWorthy

Is the Master Writ that you have just picked up worth doing?  Do you have the materials/enough gold to buy the materials and/or skills to finish the job?  With WritWorthy you can scan the Master Writ and when used in conjunction with the likes of Master Merchant can give you approximate costs for getting hold of the required materials, as well as automating the production of the said items.
