Jakes node as tabs is an excellent navigation add-on allowing for tab management the most useful add-on on xenforo imo. FREE

Not sure if your worried about social features that adds to the social aspect of a site

Post ratings - by Dark Immortal: an extension on the likes system that allows you to give more than a like. PAID
Xenmoods - I find a nice feature that members always like (though I'm not sure what your site entails) but members tend to like these. FREE
Notifications - By Chris Deeming: Very useful notification for your guests members and has tons of options and a bargain a very useful and versatile add-on. PAID
Bookmarks by Syndol: Again a useful bookmarking manager for members to keep track of their fav posts. PAID

There's also a range of other good add-ons but it depends what kind you are looking for, kind of site you have and really how you operate. But the above are ones I find useful Node as tabs is a must no site should be without this.

Syndol's Conversation Essentials - it shows who the other person is on the Conversation list plus lots of other useful controls. FREE and PAID versions.
