Since most of the posts here are from 2014, I thought I'd start fresh.  I'm looking for good newbie friendly add-on recommendations.  To start, a mini map, a quest display showing several at a time and something to keep me organized with crafting would be welcome.  Is there an add-on that imports settings from one character to a new alt?  Any good ones out there that I don't know I need yet?  Is ESOUI a safe and current site for addons?

I like Votan's Minimap and Ravalox Quest Tracker to answer your first question. I don't really craft but I do use HarvestMap for gathering. It's like Gatherer if you played WoW. Map Pins adds a lot of info to your map that is missing. Bandit's UI is a good all-in-one that works well without much fiddling, but as a new player it might be better to stick with the default until you find what bugs you. Keep it in mind for down the road though. If you don't like the buff tracking in BanditsUI, you could try Srendarr. It's a bit more customizable. DarkUI is purely cosmetic but I find the default UI ugly to it's a must-have for me.

ESOUI is the best place for addons. They have an addon manager called Minion that works well and keeps things up-to-date.

Hope this helps you get started.

Oh, be still my squirrel-ly heart, I'm loving HarvestMap.  Slows down the questing though when I wander off to follow harvest nodes, but I get back on the path eventually.  Thank you for the suggestions Calsie!  Minion is making this SO much easier!  Agreed that Bandit's UI is a bit TMI for right now, but looks like something I'll want eventually.  I've also picked up Harven's Research Timers and Inventory Grid View to keep me organized.  Learning WASD and the combat is coming slooooowly, but its quality of life stuff like this that enhances the fun stuff :)
