Addons are external bits of programming that can enhance your game play. They are created by other players and are therefore not supported by ZoS and are used at your own risk (see the ZoS policy on addons). However, there is a very active community within ESO that create addons for all of us to use (see ESOUI for more information).

To add an addon to your game, just download the addon file which is usually in a zip file, so it will need to be extracted. Then place the unzipped folder into

Below are advanced addons that will help players do more advanced things in the game such as customise maps, sell items, crafting, create multiple builds, trial support, etc. Please note that not addons include their libraries and must be downloaded as well.


harvensmaps.png

Allows you to place your own markers anywhere on the map, offering a variety of colours and icons. Great for marking vamp and werewolf shrines, daily quest givers, etc.


mastermerchant.png

This is a "must have" if you want to start selling in guild stores. It scans all the sales that happen in the guilds you are in. This way you are building a database of information on the value of items in the game. Unlike TTC, it's based on actual sales (not attempted sales), so you know you're getting a good idea of the value of an item. It does have some drawbacks however. It only scans those guilds that have a kiosk trader, is based on the history of the guilds and therefore if history is turned off by ZoS it bugs, and this takes up a lot of resources on your PC as the database gets bigger and bigger. It's also complex and although you can set limits on things like how much data you keep, it takes a bit of adjusting with the settings to get it right. Be prepared for a learning curve when using this addon.

Note: This will cause a long load time when you first log in to the game.

An extension addon for Master Merchant so MM is required. It records all your purchases from guild kiosks, adding to your database.

Note: This will not work without Master Merchant addon.
