Glory awaits those who fight for themselves or their Alliance during the Midyear Mayhem PvP event. Celebrate the legendary warrior Pelinal Whitestrake and earn double XP, Alliance Points, and bonus rewards by taking part in ESO’s PvP game modes!
Capture Bonus XP and AP
The Midyear Mayhem event begins on Thursday, July 26 at 3:00PM BST and will end on Monday, August 6 at 3:00PM BST. During this time, you can win honor and bonus rewards by following the steps below:
- Visit the in-game Crown Store and acquire and activate the “Details on the Midyear Mayhem» ticket
- Travel to your Alliance War faction’s main gate in Cyrodiil using the Alliance War menu
- Find the NPC called “Predicant Maera» and pick up the quest “Midyear Mayhem»
- Note if you already completed the quest last year, you won’t need to do it again
- Complete the quest to receive your Scroll of Pelinal’s Ferocity and a Pelinal’s Midyear Boon Box
- Use the scroll to enjoy a two-hour, 100% buff in the Alliance War, Imperial City, and Battlegrounds to:
- Alliance Points gained
- XP gains for PvP player kills
You are able to keep the Scroll of Pelinal’s Ferocity and re-use it for the duration of the event. If you already completed the quest in last year’s event, the scroll you received then will work, too. If you previously earned the scroll and misplaced it, don’t worry, you can pick up another from Predicant Maera for 100 gold or 100 Alliance Points.
To ensure you’re able to take the field, we are opening up two additional 7-day CP Alliance War campaigns during the event, and have additional ones ready to go if needed. There’s never been a better time to fight for control of the Imperial province.
Become the Star-Made Knight
Those who claim victory on the field of battle can earn themselves a special collectible that is only available during the Midyear Mayhem event: the Midyear Victor’s Laurel Wreath.
To earn this glorious headdress, you must unlock the “Star-Made Knight» achievement by completing each of the seven Midyear Mayhem event Achievements:
- Mayhem Connoisseur: Receive the blessing of the Whitestrake at one of the Alliance Gates during the Midyear Mayhem.

These Achievements require you to participate in both the Alliance War, Battlegrounds, and Imperial City matches. This means you must own the Imperial City DLC game pack in order to earn all the required Achievements.
To the Victor go the Spoils
As you earn glory in PvP, you’ll receive Pelina’s Midyear Boon Boxes in addition to your regular Rewards for the Worthy containers. This year, you can also earn the Boon Boxes from the repeatable Town, Battle, Bounty, Conquest, Scouting, and Warfront quests in Cyrodiil as well as the Battlegrounds repeatable quests, too.
These unique event boxes contain Tel Var Stones and a chance to receive one of these items:
- Transmute Crystals
- Alchemy reagents
- PvP consumables such as repair kits, forward camps, and siege weapons
- Motif pages for the Alliance and Akaviri styles
- Style items for your Alliance
- Akaviri style items
- Coldharbour siege weapons

- Books of Pelinal housing items
During the event, all nodes in Cyrodiil and the Imperial City will drop double their regular resources, and the Cyrodiil PvP merchant Adhazabi Aba-daro (known as “The Golden») will stock Alliance War Legendary-quality jewelry. In the first week of the event, you are able to purchase necklaces, and in the second week, you can acquire rings. You can find Adhazabi in the Western Elsweyr Gate, Northern High Rock Gate, or Southern Morrowind Gate once you enter Cyrodiil.
Finally, you can get into the spirit of the Midyear Mayhem event and truly honor Pelinal Whitestrake by picking up the Star-Made Wolfshead costume from the in-game Crown Store from July 26 until July 30.
