About LoreBooks


This addon displays map pins for Shalidor's Library books.

In-game setting is in the SETTINGS -> Addons Settings -> LoreBooks menu. You can choose what icons you want to use, select if addon should display allready collected books and much more. Please try it yourself and let me know your thoughts. All ideas how to improve this addon are welcome.

Right now it includes over 1800 locations of lorebooks and with every update will be this number higher. If you find lorebook which is not listed in addon, please write me its location, so I can update database.

Slash commands

/lorebooks     settings menu
/lbreport      report new books you have found
/lbcollected   show all books you have collected
/lbcheck       check locations of books you have not collected yet
/myloc         prints your current location to the chat
/mylocation    dtto
/mypos         dtto
/myposition    dtto

How to manually install addon

  • Go to the "Elder Scrolls Online" folder in your Documents
For Windows: C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\<version>\
For Mac: /Documents/Elder Scrolls Online/<version>/
(replace <version> with the client you're using - "live" or "liveeu")
  • You should find an AddOns folder, if you don't, create one.
  • Extract the addon from downloaded zip file to the AddOns folder
  • Log into the game, and in the character creation screen, you'll find the Addons menu. Enable your addons from there.

Help wanted

I didn't check all lorebook locations in-game, so if you find any missing map pin or pin on the wrong spot, please report it as a bug on my EsoUI portal:


How to report:

Switch to "Bug", select "LoreBooks" interface, enter any title and to the description write which pin is on wrong spot and its correct position on the map.

All books at once:

To the chat type /lbreport. It will show report that contains new lorebook locations you have found on all your characters. Copy its text to clipbboard (just press COPY button) and paste it to bug report on my portal.

One by one:

If you want to get lorebook location, move as close as possible to that book and type /myloc. This command reports current location of your character to chat.

"Auridon: 34.92,11.51 (auridon/auridon_base)"

If you have enabled icons for collected books, right after you read a book a new map pin will appear at your location. So if you do not remember book name, it is on the pin tooltip.

"          Auridon Lore           "
"Crimes of the Daggerfall Covenant"

So the bug report will be:
Add "Crimes of the Daggerfall Covenant" to Auridon 34.92,11.51.
Name for Auridon 34.92,11.51 is not correct, it should be "Crimes of the Daggerfall Covenant"

Lorebooks data are collected from:

This addon uses the following libraries:


  • Add location of remaining lorebooks
  • Improve icon textures
  • Add link between lore library and map pins
  • Create better tooltips

v2 (Ayantir)
- Lorelibrary research added. To search a book, open the lore library and type your research on the top right corner. You'll need to type at least 3 characters in order to start the search. You can search a collection name or a book name, Lorebook will then show only the collections related to your research. Please note that if the research is case insensitive, some french and german books should be researched with their accentuation or special characters.

- Added for each book of the Shalidor library an entry in its context menu. It will show you the zone name and the coordinates of the book in this specified area. Clicking on the entry will show you the specified map and set your waypoint to this location.

Please note that thoses two features are only enabled for Keyboard UI. Gamepad support will come later
