How to Install ESO Addons Manually

You can manually install ESO addons by adding addons files to ESO AddOn folder location. You just need to find where is the ESO AddOn Folder.
1.Download ESO addon you like and extract the files to a folder on your desktop.

2.Navigate to your ESO addon folder location. Below are the answers about where is ESO addon folder.
On PC, the default install path is: C:\Users\< username >\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\
On Mac, the default install path is: ~/Documents/Elder Scrolls Online/live/

3. In the 'live' folder, create a new folder named AddOns if it doesn’t already exist and open the AddOns folder.

PC: C:\Users\<user name>\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\AddOns\< AddOn FolderName >\< files >
Mac: ~/Documents/Elder Scrolls Online/live/AddOns/< AddOn FolderName >/< files >

5.Log into the Elder Scrolls Online game. Click “AddOns” button in the lower left corner of the character select screen. If a window pops up saying "out of date", choose the "Load Outdated AddOns" option. Then you can use the addon in the game.

How to Install ESO Addons using Minion
