Elder Scrolls Online’s Midyear Mayhem PvP event returns today through February 4 where plenty of rewards await.

In total, you can earn bonuses, XP, and Alliance Points in Alliance War, Battlegrounds, and Imperial City. Make sure you keep the Scroll of Pelinal’s Ferocity and reuse it during the event. If you happen to get rid of it, grab another from Predicant Maera for 100 gold or 100 Alliance Points. Here’s how to participate:

  1. Navigate to the in-game Crown Store and acquire the FREE “Details on the Midyear Mayhem" quest from the Quest Starters category.
  2. Travel to your faction's main gate in Cyrodiil from the Alliance War menu.
  3. Locate the NPC called “Predicant Maera" and acquire the quest titled “Midyear Mayhem."
    • If you completed the quest previously, 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 activate a two-hour, 100% buff to Alliance Points and XP from player kills in PvP activities.

Rewards include collectibles like the Legion Zero Outfit Style Pages, Standard-Bearer Emotes, and Midyear Victor’s Laurel Wreath. The wreath specifically requires you to complete these achievements:

  • Mayhem Connoisseur: Receive the blessing of the Whitestrake at one of the Alliance Gates during the Midyear Mayhem.
  • Echo of Pelinal's Fury: Read a Scroll of Pelinal's Ferocity during the Midyear Mayhem.
