Addons Guide (PC)


Here are the addons I use broken down into groups of varying importance:



ESO BUILDS UPDATED FOR LOST DEPTHS U35


QUESTIONS? COME SAY HI!


Absolute Must Have On Day 1

ADDONDESCRIPTION
Map PinsThis will put pins on your map for Skyshards, Lorebooks, Treasure chests, surveys and so much more making it a must-have!
Bandits User InterfaceGreat UI, lots of features to explore. Does everything you want, and more!
Perfect PixelMassive improvement of the UI. Essentially forces menus to use the full screen instead of the middle 50% of the screen which the game UI does by default for some reason. This means you can see a lot more, with a lot less mouse-wheel scrolling

Must Have for Group Content

ADDONDESCRIPTION
Code's Combat AlertsWarns you of dungeon mechanics, typically ones that will kill you in one shot so that you can roll-dodge away. VERY USEFUL
Raid NotifierHelps warn you of raid mechanics. It will save you and your raid team a lot of tears!
Hodor ReflexesThis one is optional, and more for organized raid groups. Provides stats and insight into your groups' performance and tells you when you should use your ult if you should be timing with team members.
Combat MetricsThis is THE tool we use to analyze our damage in ESO. It tells you what percentage of the groups total damage you are providing. It provides a breakdown of your damage so you can see how much DPS each individual skill is providing. Essential for every Damage dealer

Highly Recommended - QOL

ADDONDESCRIPTION

Wizard's WardrobeAllows you to save multiple builds for the same character. Change all of your gear, skills, and champion points from a group build, to a solo build, to a PVP build in the click of a button.
Craft StoreIncredibly powerful, but I mostly use it for crafting enchantments. It makes it so, so much easier and more intuitive.
Fancy Action BarHelps you keep those buffs up and those DOTS on. Fancy Action bar allows you to see both bars at once. choose one or the other, but not both.
Tamriel Trade CentreAllows you to hover over an item and see roughly what it sells for so you know what is, and what is not worth saving.
Beam Me UpAllows you to teleport to a friend or guild mate in any zone free of charge. You can search by friend or by zone, making getting around free very easy!

WHY USE MINION?

Why use minion? It installs your addons, it updates your addons, it shows you the most popular addons first. (though most-popular does not equate to best, hence this list!)

You can install addons manually, but minion is way easier and faster!


How to Install Minion

  1. Download the program here (click the real download button and not an ad)
    • Usually minion will fail to find the ESO folder on its own. Here is the default file path.

Install Addons

click on the "find addons"tab and search for the addons recommended above and any others you might want!

Be sure to install the associated lib files. These are easily found in came by expanding the addon (escape >addons > click the carrot next to the addon name). They are also usually listed in the addon description in minion

Are Your AddOns Working??

Yes? Congrats! This is rare for a first-timer!! Enjoy! - Press [Enter] in-game to bring up the cursor to grab and move UI items on the screen.

No? Well, what's wrong?

Install location? - When you open the game and click "addons" in the character select screen do your addons show up?

  • No? You've selected the wrong folder to install the addons into!! Have minion find the addons folder again (usually in documents >elder scrolls online >live >addons)
  • Yes? Let's move on.

Did you install the Lib Files? - While inside the addon menu in the game, hit the arrow next to each addon. Any files in red are missing and need to be searched for in minion and installed!

Allow out of date addons. - Be sure to check the box at the top of the addons list that allows out of date addons.

Still not working? Check the minion FAQ and ask me for help on Twitch. Good luck!
