Players are able to use third party add-ons in The Elder Scrolls Online, which can make a pretty substantial difference on their game-play experience, and everyone wants to know which are the Best ESO Add-ons to use. Fortunately, we’ve got a list of the best and most commonly sought after add-ons in ESO, take a look!
Elder Scrolls Online Addons – Must Have
Zygor’s Leveling Guide - Zygor has been in the add-on industry for years, they released a similar add-on for WoW that was extremely popular. This add-on places a small directional arrow on your screen, and will actually guide you through the quickest route to your next objective. I can’t stress how useful this is, and it is a must have for anyone who wants to quest efficiently.
Wykkyd’s Framework - This is a multi-purpose add-on that is extremely customizable, and can be used for a variety of different things in ESO. You can get a nice quick view of your current stats (HP, Gold, Magicka, etc), and choose from some other features such as auto-stealth. Wykkyd’s Framework is a must have for anyone who craves add-ons that make the game a lot more efficient.
Recount - If you’re at all familiar with MMORPG add-ons, you already know what this does. Recount is a tool that will display damage and healing statistics for the player, their group, and their enemies. These statistics include DPS, as well as some other more detailed things. Currently, Recount is still being worked on to be fully functional, but you can use some of the features right now, and it shouldn’t be too long before it is updated.
Easy Quick Slots - Lets you switch between your quick slots quicker and easier. Extremely useful, and currently one of the Best ESO Add-ons available.
Elder Scrolls Online Add-ons – Situational
WarLegend Raid Frame - Creates a small unit frame for each member of your raid group. Really not necessary unless you are doing big end-game instances or PvP, but extremely useful in those situations.
Multi-Quest Tracker - You aren’t allowed to track lots of quests at the same time by default in ESO, but with this add-on, you’ll be able to track multiple.
XAutoRepair - Another lightweight add-on, this one simply repairs your gear instantly when talking to vendors — it saves a few seconds, but over time it’s actually really efficient to use. You should ONLY use this add-on after you’ve finished leveling, because you really should not be repairing gear while leveling your character.
Elder Scrolls Online Addons – Optional
LootDrop - Simple, but very convenient. Essentially, this add-on displays a small notification of what items you looted when you perform an auto-loot.
ZrMiniMap - Displays a small mini-map on the screen, pretty basic and not too customizable, but great for anyone who prefers having a small map to look at without going to the menus.
Esohead (ZAM) - This add-on will actually allow you to contribute information to the ESOHead database, without having to do much other than just have it enabled in your game. It isn’t really instant gratification for the user, but something that will help us all out in the long run.
Inventory Grid - I love this add-on, it shows your inventory in a grid, so you can view all of your items a lot easier — this is essentially Bagnon from WoW, but in ESO.
Wykyyd’s Outfitter - Allows you to try on different gear sets to see what they look like on your character. Useful purely for cosmetic purposes only.
