Getting Started

Last updated: May 19, 2022

Welcome to ESO Logs! This page will help you get familiarized with the website and how to start logging.

As always if you encounter any problems or have any questions, you can contact us at for help or join the ESO Logs Discord!

Account Setup

To upload logs to the site, you will need to create an account. Make sure to use a valid email as we verify your account via an activation email.

In-game Settings

To enable combat logging in Elder Scrolls Online, just go to your chat window and type /encounterlog. That's all you have to do! Now everything you and the players and enemies around you do will be written to a file called Encounter.log. This file can be found in the Documents/Elder Scrolls Online/live/Logs subdirectory for your Windows/Mac user.. When you're all done, you can just exit the game or type /encounterlog again to turn logging off.

Uploading Logs

Log Uploader Clients

In order to upload logs to the website, you use a client application. They can be found here. We have two options, either the ESO Logs Uploader, or the Overwolf Companion app.

The ESO Logs Uploader is the simpler version, which requires very little setup. The Companion app is more in-depth and offers more features, such as an in-game overlay. Read more about the Companion app here.

If you have any issues getting the application to launch or install, you can either go to the forums to see if anyone has encountered the same issue, or join our Discord for help.

Uploading to the Website

There are two ways to log. The first option is to upload the entire log file after you are done with the content you wish to upload. The second way is what we call live logging. When you live log, the client monitors the log file and uploads any new fights instantly to the website.

When you upload logs, you have two choices of where they go. Every user gets a personal log space, where you can always upload. The second option is to your specific guild's logs. When you do this, everyone in the guild will be able to see the logs. This is a shared space for every guild member.
