Finally, throughout the event, harvesting nodes within Cyrodiil and the Imperial City will drop double their regular resources, and the Cyrodiil merchant Adhazabi Aba-daro (also known as “The Golden”) stocks Alliance War Legendary-quality jewelry, with necklaces during the first weekend and rings during the second.
Event Tickets & Unstable Morpholiths
During the Midyear Mayhem event, you can earn up to three Event Tickets per day by completing two different PvP activities:
- Two tickets for completing any Cyrodiil or Battlegrounds daily quest
- One ticket for completing any Imperial City district daily quests
The Event Ticket timer resets at 1:00AM EDT each morning. Note that if you earn new Event Tickets over the 12-limit cap, you’ll lose them.
This Midyear Mayhem event also introduces a brand-new series of base and upgrade fragments for the year! These fragments will allow you to summon the new Unstable Morpholith pet and eventually upgrade the pet into different items throughout 2021. You can begin collecting your pet fragments by picking them up from the Impresario for Event Tickets.
Be careful when handling the Unstable Morpholith pet!
Here’s everything the Impresario will stock during the Midyear Mayhem event:
- Unstable Morpholith base fragments
- Including the Deadlands Flint, Rune-Etched Striker, and Smoldering Bloodgrass Tinder
- The first Unstable Morpholith upgrade fragment
- The Rune-Scribed Daedra Hide
- Ebonsteel Armor Outfit Style pages (can’t be traded)
- Second Legion Outfit Style pages (can’t be traded)
- Breton Terrier pet
- Midyear Grab Bags
- Containing a collectible you don’t currently have from previous Midyear Mayhem events
- Group Repair Kits
Once you have all three base fragments, you’ll be able to summon your Unstable Morpholith pet from your Collections UI. During the event, you can also collect the first upgrade fragment to eventually upgrade your Morpholith into the Deadlands Scorcher skin!
The Deadlands Scorcher skin
As you might have guessed, the Unstable Morpholith and fragments work the same way as the Indrik feathers and berries did from previous events. Simply collect them during the events and use them to unlock new collectible rewards! For more on these new rewards and Event Tickets in general, check out our guide.
Battle your fellow players in the Alliance War, Battlegrounds, and Imperial City and you’ll receive bonuses to XP and Alliance Points AND unlock a host of new and returning event collectibles.
