ESO Suggested add-ons - creature comforts for the modern player

Add-ons simplify life. A lot. A huge honking heap of a lot. Like home appliances. Not using add-ons is an exercise in excruciating stoicism. Unless you're a hobbit and live in a hole in the ground without internet. Don't be a luddite.

There's many add-ons out there. Some are very specific for very limited uses, and which you may never need. Others are outdated and don't quite work well with the game, if at all - and ESO is updated and patched regularly, so add-ons must keep up. And then there's choice: personal taste and playing style.

FIRST, install Minion: ESO - A starter kit for shiny new players
THEN, run Minion to select, install and update your add-ons

See the description for each one in Minion, this is just a plain(ish) list. A discussion of the add-ons whys and wherefores will be found after the lists
(Coming Soon)

Please contribute your suggestions and preferences in the thread - I'll edit and add to the list accordingly.

Must-haves for all seasons
(whatever you like to do in ESO, you need these)

MiniMap (I use Fyrakin's, but there are others)
NoAccidentalStealing (+no accidental casting)
SupressErrorMessage (not just because they're annoying and just for debugging, but error messages can break add-on functionality - switch on in Settings if you need the info for Support or debug)
