Last week we took a look at the top MMORPGs to mod, and this week we're following up with some of the top mods from those games. We're showcasing some of the top mods for different moddable games and giving you the reasons why you should be using them. Join us as we take a look at the Top 10 Fan Made Mods in MMORPG games.
Deadly Boss Mods - World of Warcraft
Deadly Boss Mods has become an essential raiding tool in World of Warcraft and represents a great quality-of-life improvement in dungeons. It gives players a heads-up when bad shit is about to go down. You can customize it to suit your needs, and it reminds you not to stand in the fire. Everything a raider needs to take on the biggest and baddest bosses in WoW.
ELVUI - World of Warcraft
If you're looking to revamp your entire UI interface, ELVUI is the addon you should go for. Not only is it one of the most versatile tools out there, it's also one of the most popular addons for WoW. Configure your display based on your role, or move and reshape things custom to how you like them. There's very few limits when it comes to what ELVUI can do.
Bagnon - World of Warcraft
Inventory management is a sad reality in MMOs, so you might as well make it more manageable. Bagnon does just that by combining all of your bags into one useful inventory screen where everything is color coded and sortable. It's also alt-friendly, allowing you to see items and gold your other characters have as well.
Action Duration Reminder - Elder Scrolls Online
Action Duration Reminder does what it says on the tin; gives you a look at all the duration timers for your abilities on both bars and reminds you that it's time to use them again. It's an essential addon that really should have been default in the game given how important bar-swapping is in The Elder Scrolls Online.
Votan's Minimap - Elder Scrolls Online
The Elder Scrolls Online devs decided to go with a compass at the top of your screen instead of providing a minimap, an essential thing for any MMORPG. Thankfully modder Votan stepped in and gave us Votan's Minimap. It shows lots of useful information and helps you know where you are in the world.
Skyshards - Elder Scrolls Online
Hunting Skyshards in ESO can be quite taxing, but there's an easier way to do it than just trying to figure out their locations by the vague clues in the game. The Skyshards addon shows you right where those pesky buggers are, and even what delves you need to go into to get them. Download it now and make your life just a little bit simpler.
Deed Tracker - Lord of the Rings Online
Tracking Deeds in Lord of the Rings Online can be a real pain, so to help ease the burden there is Deed Tracker. The default window for Deeds leaves a lot to be desired, but Deed Tracker is there to make the information easier to read AND easier to track. Given how much free LOTRO currency you can get from completing Deeds, you'll want to give this addon a go.
MoorMap - Lord of the Rings Online
Let's talk about LOTRO's lackluster world map. Luckily there is MoorMap, which gives you much more information and even lets you make your own notes when you want to remember where something is. In conjunction with MoorMaps, a lot of players also use Terrain Map, which makes the map more Google-esque in appearance and much easier to read.
Barbarian Barber - Conan Exiles
Feeling limited by the character creation in Conan Exiles? Fear not, there's a mod for that. Barbarian Barber adds over 150 hairstyles for males and females into the game. When it's time to freshen up your look, you can use the Edit Appearance mod to change up your style.
Immersive Armors - Conan Exiles
The Immersive Armors mod for Conan Exiles adds over 400 new items to your survival sandbox experience with everything from armor and weapons to jewelry and accessories. You'll also need the Accessory Wardrobe mod to equip your new items, but there's style for days in all of the options Immersive Armors brings to the game.
That's our list of the Top 10 MMORPG mods out there. Feel free to let us know your favorite mods in the comments.
