Add-On that shows spell penetration after Scalebreaker release

Hi all,
I've tried a couple add-ons that state that they'll display my spell penetration in the character window, but neither of them work and both haven't been updated in a while. I was wondering if anyone knows of an add-on that works, even today, that will show this stat. based on a toon's current setup and is actually updated and accurate?

    Needs to be base game.
    I mean there aren't many sources, so its easy to add up, but still!!! Makes no sense its not on the character stat screen for all of us.

    I agree this should definitely be shown in the actual game without add-ons. This looks like it can show good information but it's more involved than what I'm looking for. I'm lazy and want something quick and easy since I like playing casually and just enjoying my free time/game time. I don't want to turn ESO into a science experiment or job. So I'll just guestimate for now because, as someone said, there aren't too many sources. It would be nice if there was a simple add-on that displayed this kind of stuff and I guess there were, they just haven't been updated by the authors. Too bad. Thanks for answering.

    I believe I tried that and it doesn't show spell pen.

    Extended Stats does work, I just made changes in the CP System and it showed the exact Penetration Values for both Spell and Physical

    I'll try it out then again soon then and see how it goes. Does it display my spell pen number on the character window? If not, how do I see that value?

    To see your spell and physical penetration values with uespLog you don't need to do anything but install the addon and reloadui; those values are part of its basic functionality, and they will appear on both your character sheet page and your inventory page. So don't worry, you won't be dealing with any of its others options unless you choose to.

    Harven's Extended Stats will the values only on your character sheet page.

    In my opinion, uespLog has the cleaner, simpler layout.

    As long as I can just pull my my character page and see my spell pen I'll be happy. If I can just install 1 add-on to see it that's great for me. But I've tried that add-on before and it didn't display spell pen on my character page. It didn't change my character page at all. But I'll report by the end of the weekend if something has changed.

    I installed extended stats again and it does nothing at all. It hasn't been updated in over a year as well. My character window is the default.

    If you're willing to try one more time (I've never had to do the following; it worked out of the box for me); reinstall uesplog, start the game, and try typing this in the chat box: "/uespcustomstat on" (without the quotation marks) and reload the UI to take effect. Hopefully that works for you.

    You must have an addon conflict. Hargravens is a popular enough addon that it would have been updated by somebody if it needed to be. Most addons that report basic data do not really need to be updated. I have some that have not updated in years.

    Anyway, if no addon is showing you what you want, some other addon you have is preventing that from happening.

    I installed Pentest. I see a box on my screen and I don't know how to move it or what it's trying to show me. Any idea how to use this addon? I don't see any instructions or a video tutorial.

    If you press shift to bring up the HUD you should be able to click and drag the box. But the area to grab is tricky to find, so keep at it. Just check in Settiings/Addons for that addon and make sure the lock windows is not set.

    As for what it is showing you, in most PVE fights outside of a group, your penetration is static. Unless you apply a buff to you or a debuff to the boss. I have never seen this addon, but I imagine it shows buffs on you and debuffs on the boss

    Thanks for replying but still stuck. I press shift in game and nothing happens at all. When I press escape and go to addons, I don't know how to tell if the "lock window is set". I don't even know what a lock window is or what you mean. I think I've given up at this point. There doesn't appear to be a single addon that will show me my current spell penetration in the character screen and that will stay updated regardless of if I change a factor that contributes to my spell pen value like removing some CP points etc. I'm going to uninstall every addon I have except 2. The only 2 I have that seem to work or do anything at all are the ones that show me map pins for lore books and skyshards.
