‘Elder Scrolls Online’ in-game events: Everything to know about the Midyear Mayhem 2020
There are many things to look forward to in “Elder Scrolls Online” at this early point in 2020. While fans are still gathering information about the next expansion that will take them to Skyrim, they might want to focus first on the Midyear Mayhem event opening this week.
‘Elder Scrolls Online’ special events: How to join the Midyear Mayhem on Jan. 23
New “Elder Scrolls Online” players might be wondering why an event with the word “midyear” in its name is being held at a very early time of the year. The player-versus-player event launched in 2017 and went live in late July for 11 days for its first two years.
However, Bethesda switched up its schedule in 2019 and moved up the Midyear Mayhem festivities in January 2019 – an in-game tradition that is being maintained this year. In its fourth go-around, the PvP event will go live on Thursday, Jan. 23, at 10 a.m. EST and will run through Feb. 4.
To join the Midyear Mayhem, “Elder Scrolls Online” players will need to visit the Crown Store and collect the free “Details on the Midyear Mayhem" quest. Players should then proceed to their faction's main gate in Cyrodiil by locating it through the Alliance War menu.
Players will have to find the NPC named Predicant Maera from whom they will receive the Midyear Mayhem quest. Note, though, that “Elder Scrolls Online” players that completed these steps in the previous years can skip these and go straight to completing the quest to gather the Scroll of Pelinal's Ferocity and a Pelinal's Midyear Boon Box. The scroll can be used to activate a 100% Alliance Points and XP boost for every player kills for a total of two hours.
‘Elder Scrolls Online’ Midyear Mayhem 2020 brings in new prizes
As can be expected on any in-game events, participating in the daily activities, and completing missions can be a very rewarding experience. “Elder Scrolls Online” players joining this year’s Midyear Mayhem could have access to two new prizes coming out this year namely the Legion Zero Outfit Style Pages and the Standard-Bearer Emotes.
Pelinal’s Boon Boxes, on the other hand, is one of the very common rewards players will come across in this event. “Elder Scrolls Online” players will acquire more of these boxes as they complete daily PvP missions, and they may contain Transmute Crystals, Alchemy reagents, repair kits, forward camps, and siege weapons, among other items.
