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 basic addons that will help players do the base things you need to in the game such as find skyshards or harvest materials. Please note that not addons include their libraries and must be downloaded as well.


minion.png

Not an addon but a stand-alone programme outside the game that manages the updates on your addons for the game. Anyone who played WoW will recognise this programme. You can set it to automatically or manually update the addons. Not all addons are updated with each maintenance however, so be sure to remember to set your addons to "Allow out of date addons" in the game.

Note: This does not go into your addon folder!


skyshards.png

Adds preset skyshard icons to your map and compass. Makes it much easier to find them and you can set settings to have them change colour depending if they are on the surface or underground. You can also change the settings to have them fall off the map once you find them.

Requires library dependencies that must be downloaded into your addon folder as well:
Custom Compass Pins
LibAddonMenu
LibGPS2

Adds preset quest icons to your maps such as wayshrines, crafting stations, dungeons and points of interests that turn white once you find them. You can also filter out things to locate what you want to find.


harvestmap.png

Unlike the other map addons, this one is not preset, but adds icons as you find things in your travels through Tamriel. It has the capability to mark chests, thieves troves, psyjic portals, flowers, mines, etc. However, you can choose which ones you want and turn off others. Further, it marks them in game with a 3-D icon that you can see when just wandering around. NOTE: Takes a lot of resources on your PC and may slow your game.

ttc.png

External website (https://tamrieltradecentre.com/) that can be used to see what things are selling for in the trading shops in the game by server. Highly recommended for new players to give you an idea of what things are worth. If you need to buy an item in game, check here first to find out where it is selling cheapest.

Note: If you decide to download the client for in-game use, then it goes into your addon folder. However you'll have to click on client.exe in the Client folder so the programme works. It is a seperate programme, so use at your own risk.


minimap-votan.png

For those who prefer the map showing and not having to hit M to see the map, there are several good minimap addons available for the game. They are listed here for you to review and figure out what you may want for your gaming style. Offers a basic minimap that copies the ZoS map.


minimap-fyrakin.png

A fully integrated minimap that shows other map addon features such as LoreBooks, HarvestMap or SkyShards. Lots of choices in shape, features showing, etc.
