WITHenimax have announced the next Midyear Mayhem event which will start January 28th! A new pet reward will be up for grabs, the Unstable Morpholith plus more rewards for taking part.
Elder Scrolls Online Midyear Mayhem Event Starts January 28th
The Midyear Mayhem PvP event once again returns to Elder Scrolls Online but this time with some brand new rewards to collect. Midyear Mayhem celebrates warrior Pelinal Whitestrake, and players who take part in PvP mode during the event will not only receive double XP and Alliances Points but bonus rewards as well. You will need the Imperial City DLC which will be free in the Crown Store during the event. The event will take place on Thursday, January 28th at 10:00 AM EST and will end on Tuesday, February 9th at 10:00AM EST. Players can take part in either Cyrodiil, Imperial City, and Battlegrounds activities. In order to receive the bonuses you will need to do the following:
- Open the in-game Crown Store to obtain and activate the “Details on the Midyear Mayhem” ticket.
- Travel to your Alliance War faction’s main gate in Cyrodiil using the Alliance War menu
- Find the NPC called “Preaching Maera” and pick up the quest “Midyear Mayhem”
- Note if you already completed the quest last year, you won’t need to do it again
- Complete the quest to receive your Scroll of Pelinal’s Ferocity and a Pelinal’s Midyear Boon Box
- Use the scroll to enjoy a two-hour, 100% buff in the Alliance War, Imperial City, and Battlegrounds to:

Once you pick the Scroll of Pelinal’s Ferocity it’s yours to keep and can be re-used throughout the duration of the event.
Those who have already received the scroll in the previous year’s event can use it for this year’s event too. Did you misplace your scroll? Not a problem, simply purchase another from Preaching Maera for 100 gold or 100 Alliance Points. You can also use the Basin of the Gore Virtuous instead.
There will also be additional PvP campaigns during the event which won’t be Alliance locked so be on the lookout for those.
