ESO PTS offers hints at upcoming Events: Mid-Year Mayhem and Murkmire Event

Daily Writ Board

The Elder Scrolls Online v5.2.3 adds Midyear Mayhem and the Murkmire Celebration for testing this week – we appreciate any feedback you’re able to provide! We’ve also made the changes to Damage over Time abilities mentioned in last week’s PTS notes, and you’ll notice many of these abilities have increased in damage compared to the first PTS patch. Also included are a number of bug fixes for quests found in Southern Elsweyr, some UI fixes, and more. The size of this patch is approximately 280MB.


Midyear Mayhem
This week, Midyear Mayhem is available to test on the PTS! This event is largely the same as last year; to get started, acquire the quest “Details of the Midyear Mayhem”, available on the starter quest directly from the Crown Store.

Making use of the Scroll of Pelinal’s Ferocity, rewarded by completing the introductory quest, will grant a 100% boost to AP (from all sources) and XP (from killing player characters).

You can earn Pelinal’s Midyear Boon Box from the introductory quest as well as Rewards of the Worthy mails sent during the Midyear Mayhem, and by completing various Daily Quests in

Cyrodiil including:All ‘Board’ missions
Town Dailies
