The Whitestrake's Mayhem event, formerly known as Midyear Mayhem, returns to ESO (Elder Scrolls Online). Bring glory to your alliance, your guild and yourself and battle enemies in Cyrodiil, Imperial City and Battlegrounds! Enjoy new rewards, alliance points, XP gains and participate in various PVP activities during the ESO Whitestrake's Mayhem event in 2023 (Midyear Mayhem 2023).
As this is a PvP focused event, you might want to create a PvP build for your character to have the best possible experience during the event. You can find community created PvP builds for every class on the PvP builds overview page. We also recommend playing in a group, especially if you are inexperienced in PvP, as you might have a hard time otherwise in ESO.

Note: You can use the Scroll of Pelinal's Ferocity throughout the whole event to keep the benefits, but remember you have to reactivate the scroll every 2 hours during the Whitestrake's Mayhem event in ESO. If you misplace the scroll you can pick up a new one at the NPC where you started the quest.
How long does the AP EXP Whitestrake's Mayhem buff last in ESO?
The Scroll of Pelinal's Ferocity lasts for two hours. After the buff expires you can reactivate it and use it as many times as you want while the ESO Whitestrake's Mayhem event is active.
Tip: Before the event ends, you can rebuff all your characters with the scroll, to enjoy another full 2 hours of extra AP EXP even after the event is over. That only works when you rebuff yourself before the event ends. You can still use the scroll after the event ends but you wont get the buff anymore.
