Bandits User Interface
One of the best ESO UI mods for a new player that’ll you want to install before even playing. A great package of handy tools, from an inventory space tracker, XP to next level indicator, UI customisation, and more. A must-have mod for anybody looking to mod their game and make it more customisable.
Download Wykkyds Framework.
A simple mod that may seem a little exploitative to some. It simply offers a keybinding that, when pressed, will teleport the player to the nearest Wayshrine for free. A handy little modification if you’re doing a lot of exploring.
Ingredients handily and clearly highlight items in a vendor’s inventory that are part of a known recipe. A great ESO mod for crafting that can save time that would otherwise be spent looking back and forth from your recipes to the vendor’s inventory.
A small window that calculates your XP-per-hour. Handy for tracking how long it’s taking you to level and how much longer until you hit the next level. A nice little modification for people who need more data above all else.
Not all that necessary if you have Foundry or XPView, but still a nice mod to have. It tracks the XP you earn, and how much you need to level, in your chat log, so you’ve always got a log of the XP your earning.
Just like Sky Shards, Lore Books marks lore books on your map, so you won’t have any problem collecting them. If you’re a lore nut who wants to learn as much as possible about Tamriel and its many factions, this mod is just right for you.
Download Lore Books.
A great mod that allows you to customize your mini-map in a variety of cool and stylish ways. Try out the many different shapes, aesthetics, and more to find the minimap that suits them best. Very nice!
By default, vanilla ESO only lets you track a single quest at one time. This simple modification changes that, and, as the name implies, allows you to track multiple quests at one time. Much more useful, especially when you’re just mopping up handfuls of minor quests.
Download Multi-Quest Tracker.
Stop Right There!
This neat little improvement tells you exactly when to “stop right there (criminal scum)” so the guards don’t have to tell you instead. A very handy mod that can save you from getting in trouble with the law whilst also letting you focus on picking the lock.
Download Stop Right There!.
A nice ESO graphic overhaul mod that aims to add depth to shadows and dark areas, and remove the strong blue tint that vanilla Elder Scrolls Online has. Simple to install, and quite pretty if set up right. The only graphical mod you’ll really need to make The Elder Scrolls Online look sharper and more vibrant.
Download Reshade 3.0.
Dolgubon’s Lazy Writ Crafter
If you want Master Writs without spending hours on crafting Writs, this AddOn is for you! As long as you have the items in your inventory, one click is all you need to do. This saves you a ton of time as this Addon does fully automated crafting including smart stone selection and craft multiplier.
It also provides you with stealing protection, along with auto loot writ rewards, writ reset reminders and a pet hider.
Note that Provisioning and Alchemy are not supported for crafting in this AddOn.
Once you install it, all you need to do is visit a crafting station.

The Auto-Research AddOn immediately starts researching when you’re at a crafting station. Once you configure your priorities, you can cut down on long research times by this AddOn that gets your character to automatically research the next item from the stockpile.
Keep in mind that you have to also install a few libraries for this AddOn to work in the intended way. This AddOn will store up to 10 research items in your bank, so you’ll have enough in store for months. This is especially useful if you’re one of the many who tend to neglect research even though it’s an integral part of the game.
Equipment pieces are also chosen according to their quickest research times (i.e. number of traits).
Champion Point Slots
We all know how frustrating and time-consuming it can be to spend time in the Champion Point Slots in ESO. This AddOn is packed with features to make the entire process much easier.
With different configurations, you can easily allocate champion points, create them from scratch, clone, rename, and import.
With your point slots organized and now you can easily keep a track of all of them with the drop-down bar.
You can also summon this UI with a keybinding or a slash command that you set.

Undaunted Pledges Utilities
If we could change one thing and one thing alone about ESO? How conscientious you need to be while organizing and keeping track of everything.
This AddOn lets you focus on the game while managing the guilds, questlines, and dungeons for you. It adds a category within the daily journal itself where all the undaunted pledge data is organised.
It also will give you a daily reminder of the dailies to be completed along with Auto Abandon feature.
You can also enable a Dungeon Achievement Tracker that lets you know about any missing achievements when entering a dungeon.

Port to Friend’s House
If you’re lucky enough to have friends that play ESO with you, you’ll want this valuable feature that makes the game much more social.
With this add-on, you can visit your friend’s houses (and secondary houses) with a quick keybinding. Of course, they need to give you the right to enter!
And if you’re a real ESO social butterfly, you’ll appreciate that you can define keybindings up to 10 favorites.
