The latest Elder Scrolls: Online event, Midyear Mayhem, begins today. The returning event, which is something of a staple for the game’s calendar, will run until the 21st of January. The event offers bonus rewards across several different modes, including Alliance War, Battlegrounds, and the Imperial City. It also offers players a way to gain the new Dawnwood Indrik transformation.
Midyear Mayhem: The Latest Elder Scrolls: Online Event
The Midyear Mayhem event begins today (the 10th of January) at 3:00 PM GMT. It will come to an end at 3:00 PM GMT on the 21st of January. To participate in the event, you need to go to the Crown Store and select the “Details on the Midyear Mayhem” ticket option. Once you do, travel to the main gate of your faction in Cyrodiil, which you can do via the Alliance War menu, and where you will find Predicant Maera. They will give you the “Midyear Mayhem” quest, although you won’t need to complete this quest if you’ve already done it during a previous Midyear Mayhem event.
Once you complete the quest, you’ll gain a Scroll of Pelinal’s Ferocity and a Pelinal’s Midyear Boon Box. When you use the scroll, you gain a 2-hour buff of 100% for Alliance Points and your XP for PvP player kills in the Imperial City, Battlegrounds, and Alliance War modes. You can re-use the scroll as much as you want during the event. This will allow you to gain a unique collectable called the Midyear Victor’s Laurel Wreath. To get the wreath, you need to complete seven event achievements. You will of course need the Imperial City DLC to participate in the event.
- Mayhem Connoisseur: Gain the Whitestrake’s blessing at an Alliance Gate.
- Echo of Pelinal’s Fury: Read a Scroll of Pelinal’s Ferocity.
- Hand of the Whitestrake: Earn 25 Pelinal’s Midyear Boon Boxes.
- Wrath of the Whitestrake: Kill 50 opponents.
- Pelinavant the Scourge: Win a Battleground match.
- Pelinaline the Bloody: Capture a Cyrodiil Keep.
- Pelinerrif Insurgent: Capture an Imperial District.
As you participate in the event, you’ll earn Pelinal’s Midyear Boon Boxes as bonus rewards. These can contain Transmute Crystals, Alchemy reagents, various PvP consumables, Motif pages (Alliance & Akaviri styles), Style items (Alliance & Akaviri), Coldharbour siege weapons, Prismatic runestones, and Books of Pelinal furnishings. You can also get double the normal amount of resources from Cyrodiil and Imperial City harvesting nodes, and special items from The Golden merchant.
