New player addons

davidmanvell
Just started playing. I have been playing Playstation Skyrim VR. Also have played Ion and Wow.

Have any recommended addons for a brand new player still low level?
  • davidmanvell
    Please keep in mind I am not familiar with any addons for ESO nor even how to install them etc so trying to keep this very basic at first.

    Install Minion first and you can search for and download add ons from there. Dolgubon's Lazy Writ Crafter is a must have if you do daily writs. For trading, look into, Tameriel Trade Centre, AwesomeGuildStore, and Master Merchant. HarvestMap is good if you farm for materials.

    It looks like you are playing on Playstation. Addons only work on PC. Just saying.
    PC - NA - AD
    PVE & Solo only

    Meet the LOST family: CP 810+ ( only took me 4 years to get to max CP )
    Easily Lost Crafter - lvl 50 - Sorcerer High Elf ( knows all traits and most styles )
    Easily Lost II - lvl 50 - Sorcerer High Elf
    Easily Lost V - lvl 50 - Sorcerer High Elf
    Always Lost I - lvl 43 - Warden Redguard
    Forever Lost II - lvl 50 - Sorcerer High Elf

    As you can tell I love Sorcerers and High Elves


    CROWN CRATES: It doesn't affect gameplay, it's not mandatory, it's cosmetic only. If it helps to support the game and ZOS, I support it! Say YES to crown crates.

    I was playing on a Playstation 4 with the game Skyrim VR. I'm now playing on a PC with ESO. Sorry for not making that clear. I was just stating my past experience.

    Immersion guide

    Take a look at that guide it has most of useful addons for immersion and clean UI

    I beat the Loot Box System,
    I got an Apex Mount from a Free Drop Crate.

    My advice is to wait and see which addons you need, or want. There's a lot of things other people list as 'must have' addons which the game is unplayable without which I'd never use (including some I installed, and then deleted because I really was never using them) and others I would hate playing without which many other people have never even heard of.

    As a result my approach is to just play the game as-is and then when something is bothering me, or I start thinking there must be a better way to do it I go looking for an addon to help with that situation. It means I only download (and then only have to update and manage) addons which are actually useful to me.

    I recommend. Map pins - for sky shard locations book locations and other useful stuff.

    If you want a personal dps tracker Combat logs

    Possibly - Action duration reminder, it might be good to get used to it but not necessary for leveling but helps tremendously for rotation.

    I’m gonna stop there

    another quest marker--this will color the icons for quests like red for zone story quests purple for turn in green for side quests etc etc

    beam me up--theres also a guild for beam me up but isnt required..get into a large numbered guild and you can use those people to teleport all over the game world for free

    map pins to show you things on your map

    also zygor questing addon..so this is no longer supported but the original part of the game is listed in this addon. you select a zone you are in and it will give you an arrow to follow.. similar to a waypoint addon for WoW. beware though..some zones have 800 wps..may not be much but when you want to just finish a zone, it seems to go on forever. each zone goes over side quests, main quests, skyshards and mage books. if youre interested in doing everything.
