ESO Spoiler: Midyear Mayhem

This event is celebrated by Imperial priests of St. Alessia every summer in commemoration of the Whitestrake’s slaughter of Elves at the Bridge of Heldon.

Note: this information has been compiled from the PTS notes and the in-game achievements listed under Holiday events. Based on accidental leaks on XBox and the Morrowind Prima Guide, the event is expected to start on July 22nd, 2017.

For the duration of the event, Adhazabi Aba-daro the Golden will also offer gold-quality jewelry in each of the Rewards for the Worthy item sets, in exchange for AP only (not sold for gold.)

Obtain the Midyear Mayhem Quest

To take part in the festivities and win honor on the field of battle, follow the steps below:

  1. Navigate to the Crown Store to acquire and activate a ticket entitled “Details on the Midyear Mayhem”
  2. Travel to your Alliance War faction’s main gate in Cyrodiil using the Alliance War menu (Default is L)
  3. Find the quest giver “Predicant Maera” and pick up the quest “Midyear Mayhem”
  4. Complete the quest to receive your Scroll of Pelinal’s Ferocity and a Pelinal’s Midyear Boon Box


How to Get to Cyrodiil

Once your character has reached level 10, hit the L key to bring up the Player-vs-Player (PvP) Alliance War  window.

Click the Crossing Sword icons in the top right of the window to select a campaign.  If you are new to PvP and are level 49 and lower, I recommend you choose the “Below Level 50” campaign.

If you have problems managing your resources, I recommend choosing a Standard (Champion Point) campaign.

Home vs Guest? The difference between Home and Guest campaigns is that while playing in your Home campaign, your Alliance Points earned raise your totals on the server leaderboard and allow you to earn leaderboard rewards and possibly become the Campaign Emperor or Empress.


Double Alliance Points

Activate the scroll to enjoy a two-hour, 100% bonus to Alliance Points earned in the following PvP game modes (Duels excluded):

  • Alliance War (Cyrodiil)
  • Imperial City (Imperial City DLC game pack is required)
  • Battlegrounds (ESO: Morrowind is required)



Aside from the event quest to obtain your Scroll of Pelinal Ferocity, there are no new event quests.

There are several quests available in your main faction base camp: Scouting Keeps, Scroll Capture, and Keep Capture quests.
