Bring glory to your Alliance, your guild, or yourself during the Midyear Mayhem PvP event and you’ll earn double Alliance Points, XP, and unique rewards.

Join the Battle!

Midyear Mayhem returns to Cyrodiil, the Imperial City, and the battlegrounds this Thursday, June 25 at 3:00PM BST, and will continue until Wednesday, July 8 at 3:00PM BST. During this event, you can claim additional rewards when battling your fellow players in PvP activities, including double XP and Alliance points and event-specific collectibles, Achievements, and titles. 

Here’s how you can join the battle:

  1. Visit the in-game Crown Store to acquire the “Details on the Midyear Mayhem" quest
  2. Travel to your Alliance War faction's main gate in Cyrodiil using the Alliance War menu or a Battlegrounds camp outside major cities
    1. You are no longer required to travel to Cyrodiil to kick off the event
  3. Find the NPC named “Predicant Maera" and continue the quest
    1. If you already completed the quest last year, 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 enjoy a two-hour, 100% buff in the Alliance War, Imperial City, and Battlegrounds to:
    1. Alliance Points gained
    2. XP gains for PvP player kills

Celebrate Pelinal’s (violent) legacy with Predicant Maera

You can keep reusing the Scroll of Pelinal’s Ferocity throughout the event. If you happen to lose it, don’t worry: you can get another from Predicant Maera or use the nearby Basin of the Gore Virtuous instead.

Claim the Spoils of War

Throughout the event, in addition to bonus Alliance Points and XP, you can also earn Midyear Mayhem-specific collectibles, reward boxes, and more.  

NEW Second Legion Outfit Style Pages

Wear the classically Imperial raiment of the Imperial City’s Second Legion with new tradeable Outfit Style pages, dropped by bosses within the Imperial City, including those found in the city itself and the sewers.

Legion Zero Outfit Style Pages

You can also earn tradeable Outfit Style pages for the Legion Zero’s armor, also dropped from bosses in the Imperial City and Imperial City sewers.

Standard-Bearer Emotes

Earned by collecting 10 Standard-Bearer’s Emblems, found within the first Pelinal’s Midyear Boon Box you open each day per account. Combine 10 of them with a Standard-Bearer’s License (on sale for 50,000 AP) from Predicant Maera to create a Runebox with the emote.

Dress like an Imperial!
