Bethesda’s first proper step into massively-multiplayer gaming, The Elder Scrolls Online may not have had the most successful launch, but years later it’s a thriving online game with a large and very dedicated community. Although it is an MMO, with guilds and raids and the stuff you’d expect from an MMO, it can also be played solo, if you so wish.
There are enough quests, guild and faction storylines, player progression, and more of the stuff you’d expect from an Elder Scrolls title. If you go into The Elder Scrolls Online expecting not Elder Scrolls 6, but something more akin to Elder Scrolls 5.5, then you’ll be likely to come away quite satisfied.

15 Best ESO Mods on PC
1. Foundry Tactical Combat
A neat mod that overhauls the UI elements of the combat to offer more information, including damage numbers, player and enemy cast bars, active buff tracking, and more. An essential mod for anybody looking for more combat feedback and more numbers. Give me more numbers!
2. Wykkyds Framework
Another essential mod 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 Elder Scrolls Online and make it more customisable.
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 mod if you’re doing a lot of exploring.
A simple mod that handily and clearly highlights items in a vendor’s inventory that are part of a known recipe. A great 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 mod 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.
7. Sky Shards
Sky Shards are super important in The Elder Scrolls Online, and collecting as many as possible is hugely important in making your character as strong and versatile as possible. This handy marks these shards on your map, so you won’t have any trouble tracking them down.
8. Lore Books
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.
A great mod that allows you to customise 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!
10. Multi-Quest Tracker
By default, vanilla ESO only lets you track a single quest at one time. This simple mod 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.
11. Stop Right There!
This neat little mod 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.
12. Potion Maker
An extremely useful mod for crafting potions. An all-in-one mod that allows you to craft potions of all varieties, track the ingredients you need, and more. An alchemist’s best friend! There are a variety of similar mods for other professions, too, if smithing is more your thing.
13. Bag Space Indicator
A nice little mod that creates a small window that will track how much space you’ve got left in your bags and storage, as well as how much gold you’re carrying. A very nice management mod that can save some time and hassle when your bags start to get full.
This simple, humble mod will organize and get rid of any junk in your inventory. It’ll destroy anything worth no gold value, and automatically sell anything that does have value. Excellent stuff! Absolutely essential if you’re the kind of player who loots everything they kill.
15. Reshade 3.0
A nice graphical 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.
