Fight for Glory during the Midyear Mayhem PvP Event

22/01/2020

Clash with your fellow players in Cyrodiil, the Battlegrounds, and Imperial City during the Midyear Mayhem event and you’ll earn bonus Alliance Points and exclusive new rewards!

Mayhem Returns

Midyear Mayhem is back, and the horns of war bellow once more from Thursday, January 23 at 3:00PM GMT, until Tuesday, February 4 at 3:00PM GMT. During this PvP event, you can earn bonus rewards, XP, and Alliance Points by battling your fellow players in the Alliance War, Battlegrounds, and Imperial City.

Here’s how you can join the fight:

  1. Navigate to the in-game Crown Store and acquire the FREE “Details on the Midyear Mayhem" quest from the Quest Starters category.
  2. Travel to your faction's main gate in Cyrodiil from the Alliance War menu.
  3. Locate the NPC called “Predicant Maera" and acquire the quest titled “Midyear Mayhem."
    • If you completed the quest previously, you won't need to do it again.
  4. Complete the quest to receive your Scroll of Pelinal's Ferocity and a Pelinal's Midyear Boon Box.
  5. Use the scroll to activate a two-hour, 100% buff to Alliance Points earned from PvP activities and XP earned from player kills.

To ensure you receive your due honors, hang on to the Scroll of Pelinal’s Ferocity and reuse it during the event period. If you happen to discard it, you can acquire another from Predicant Maera for 100 gold or 100 Alliance Points (look for her near Battleground camps for this purpose also).

Keep an eye out for three additional PvP campaigns opening up for the duration of the event, too! They won’t be Alliance locked.

Claim Your Rewards

During Midyear Mayhem, you can earn new collectibles as rewards in addition to the Midyear Victor’s Laurel Wreath.

Legion Zero Outfit Style Pages

You can don the garb of the legion by picking up the Outfit Style pages for the Legion Zero’s armor, dropped from bosses in the Imperial City, including those found in the sewers and the city proper.

Standard-Bearer Emotes

Show your colors with the Standard-Bearer emote! This new emote is earned by collecting 10 Standard-Bearer’s Emblems, found within the first Pelinal’s Midyear Boon Box you open each day per account. Once you have 10, you can combine them with a Standard-Bearer’s License (on sale for 50,000 AP) from Predicant Maera to create a Runebox with the emote for that character’s Alliance. Make sure to use it on a character of the Alliance whose banner you want to hold high!
