ESO - from old PC to new PC

thelast111
Hello

I am about to buy a new PC and I was wondering, what is the best way (in details please) to uninstall ESO from the old PC and install it on the new PC, wihtout losing anything?

    - Copy the base game folder to the new PC
    - Copy user specific data from your C:\Users\YourUserName\Elder Scrolls Online\live to the same folder on your new PC
    - On the new PC, locate the launcher exe in the base game folder and start it manually
    - Select "Repair" in the launcher and it should go ahead and set everything up for you without having to re-download the whole game again

    Disclaimer:
    I haven't done this in quite some time, it used to work just fine like that but it may not anymore.
