    Prepare for battle! Celebrate the legendary hero Pelinal Whitestrake and his victory at the Bridge of Heldon by taking part in our first Midyear Mayhem PvP event and earning the Midyear Victor's Laurel Wreath collectible hat. It is said that those who wear the Midyear Laurel feel themselves infused with the holy rage of the spirit of Pelinal himself! To learn how you can get your own Laurel Wreath while earning double Alliance Points, PvP gear, and rare crafting items, read on! 



    Ready for action? This glorious new event featuring brand new rewards tailored for PvP players begins on July 20 at 10am EDT and ends on July 31st at 10am EDT.

    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 aquire and activate a ticket entitled, "Details on the Midyear Mayhem."

    2. Travel to Alliance War faction's maingate in Cyrdodiil by using the Alliance War menu.

    3. Find the questgiver "Predicant Maera" and pick up th quest, "Midyear Mayhem."

    4. Complete the quest to receive your Scroll of Pelinal's Ferocity and Pelinal's Midyear Boon box.

    5. Activate the scroll to gain a two-hour, 100% bonus to Alliance Points earned in the following PvP game modes (dueling excluded)

        a. Alliance War (Cyrodiil)

        b. Imperial City (Imperial City DLC game pack required)

        c. Battlegrounds (ESO:Morrowind required)

    The Scroll of Pelinal's Ferocity will remain in your inventory after use, allowing you to re-use it for the entirety of the event. Get out there and earn some AP! 



    As you participate in PvP activities (excluding Duels) during the event, you can earn a new collectible hat: the Midyear Victor's Laurel Wreath. Wear this golden laurel proudly, and let it be known that you are a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield!

    To show off your prowess and style with this unique collectible, unlock the “Star-Made Knight" achievement by completing each of the seven unique Midyear Mayhem event achievements. Check your Journal for details!

    Note that some achievements will require the Imperial City DLC game pack and the ESO: Morrowind Chapter to complete.



    Bonus Alliance Points and a new hat are not the only rewards you can receive during this event. As you earn praise on the battlefield, you will also receive Pelinal's Midyear Boon Boxes along with your standard Rewards for the Worthy items. These special event reward boxes will contain Tel Var Stones and give you a chance to receive one of the following rewards:

    1. Alchemy reagents

    2. PvP consumables such as repair kits, forward camps, and siege weapons

    3. Motif pages for your Alliance and Akaviri

    4. Style items for your Alliance

    5. Akaviri style items

    6. Coldharbour siege weapons

    7. Prismatic Runestones

    8. Books of Pelinal housing items

    There's still more! During the weekends of the event, the merchant Adhazabi Aba-daro (also known as “The Golden") will offer all of the Legendary-quality jewelry that can usually only be earned via the Alliance War! You can find Adhazabi in the Western Elsweyr Gate, Northern High Rock Gate, or Southern Morrowind Gate once you enter Cyrodiil.

    On the first weekend of the event you can use Alliance points to purchase necklaces, and in the second, to purchase rings. During the event, Adhazabi Aba-daro will not accept gold as payment for these items, so put those additional Alliance Points to good use! 

    Finally, from July 27th until July 31st, you can pick up the Midyear Mayhem Crowns bundle in the Crown Store. This bundle includes three Imperial crowns celebrating the Midyear Mayhem event: the Circlet, the Coronet, and the Diadem.



    Whether you enjoy the large-scale sieges of the Alliance War, the more intimate street-fighting found in the Imperial City, or the fast-paced action of the Battlegrounds, the rewards for taking on your fellow players in PvP combat have never been greater. Will you earn glory on the battlefield?

    "Pelinal's Midyear Boon box." Poor Pelly, his methods of mayhem will never be forgotten :D Akaviri motifs has me enthused, although I've not done much PVP. “Star-Made Knight" is likely beyond my capabilities, but damn, I want that cheev!
