The Elder Scrolls Online Midyear Mayhem Event 2020
Here are the steps you'll need to take in order to how to hop into ESO's Midyear Mayhem Event 2020:
- Visit the in-game Crown Store to acquire the “Details on the Midyear Mayhem" quest
- Travel to your Alliance War faction's main gate in Cyrodiil using the Alliance War menu or a Battlegrounds camp outside major cities
- You are no longer required to travel to Cyrodiil to kick off the event
- Find the NPC named “Predicant Maera" and continue the quest
- 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
Aside from the double XP and Alliance points earned from defeating other players in PvP, the Midyear Mayhem Event 2020 also lets you pursue two new outfits and new emotes. Bosses found in the Imperial City will drop Second Legion Outfit Style Pages, while those found in the Imperial City and Imperial City sewers drop Legion Zero Outfit Style Pages.
Standard-Bearer emotes can be unlocked by earning 10 Standard-Bearer’s Emblems, usually found in the very first Pelinal’s Midyear Boon Box you open after each day's reset, on a per-account basis. Combining 10 with a Standard-Bearer’s License lets you create a Runebox with the emote.
Another collectible to pursue during The Elder Scrolls Online's Midyear Mayhem Event 2020 is the Midyear Victor’s Laurel Wreath. To earn it, you need to complete the Midyear Mayhem achievements below which require access to the Imperial City DLC that you can grab for free from the Crown Store:
