    Anyone else bothered that Midyear Mayhem is in Frostfall. I thought Frostfall was the start of the year, not mid-way through it?

    Any clairification @ZOS_JessicaFolsom ?

    Ugh, please tell me that Event Tickets will show up in the crown store...away both weekends that this event covers, and I really don't want to miss out on Berries. I think that this event will exclude a lot of folks like myself who really don't PvP and can't do weekends all the time!!

    @Threemoons,
    yes, ZoS have confirmed somewhere that event tickets will show up in the Crown store (during the last event of this quarter, I think).

    Note that you don't have to participate in every event. Each event gives more than 10 tickets - I think you can get 24 tickets from this new MidJanuary Mayhem event, by doing one PvP daily per day. This means that you can earn more than enough tickets for all the berries you need by participating in two or three of the events (although doing just one will not be enough). The important thing is that you MUST participate in the LAST event of each quarter, I think. That will be the only event in which the final berry needed for the dawnwood indrik evolution will be available - unless they just make it so that you only need 4 berries of one type for an evolution. If you are not that keen on the dawnwood indrik, start buying more feathers for other indriks in future quarters.

    Yeah, but what if I want to have enough tickets to keep getting more feathers so that I can have 1 of each mount? I do hope they implement store tix soon...work is keeping me away from ESO lately alas.

    Manchesters Angels 22/05/2017 R.I.P
    A grey Tuesday morning, ‘neath Lancastrian skies
    We wake once again to wipe tears from our eyes.
    Forced to wear robes of weakness and pity,
    As cowards attack the very heart of our city.

    Like always, we’ll comfort and hold one another,
    A Mancunian family of sisters and brothers.
    For a time our strut is reduced to a stagger,
    But make no mistake, we’ll rekindle our swagger.

    We’ll learn how to live with another deep scar.
    If you think you can beat us, you don’t know who we are!

    We’re Collyhurst, Ancoats, Moston and Sale.
    We’re Oldham and Bury; Ashton; Rochdale.

    We’re Pankhurts and Turing, the Gallagher Brothers,
    We’re Morrissey, Marr and a million others!

    We’re a city of workers, a city of shirkers.
    A city of tracksuits, and bibles and burkas.

    Vegetarian, Rastafarian, Athiest, Jew.

    100% red! 100% blue.

    We’re each of us different but never alone.
    In the Cosmopolitopia, we get to call ‘home’.

    So, come at us again, and again if you must.
    Time after time we’ll rise from the dust.
    You’ll never prevail – not against us…

    This is Manchester, our MANCHESTER
    And the bees still buzz!

    The Place - Please Read.
    This is the place in the North West of England

    It’s ace, it’s the best and the songs that we sing

    From the stands, from our bands set the whole planet shaking

    Our inventions are legends! There’s nowt we can’t make and

    So we make brilliant music. We make brilliant bands

    We make goals that make souls leap from seats in the stands

    And we make things from steel and we make things from cotton

    And we make people laugh, take the mick summat rotten

    And we make you at home and we make you feel welcome

    And we make summat happen, we can’t seem to help it

    And if you’re looking for history then yes, we’ve a wealth

    But the Manchester way is to make it yourself

    And make us a record, a new number one

    And make us a brew while you’re up, love. Go on!

    And make us feel proud that you’re winning the league

    And make us sing louder and make us believe it

    that this is the place that has helped shape the world

    And that this the place where a Manchester girl

    Name of Emmeline Pankhurst from the streets of Moss Side

    Led a Suffragette City with sisterhood pride

    And this is the place with appliance of science

    We’re on it, atomic, we strut with defiance

    In the face of a challenge we always stand tall

    Mancunians in union delivered it all

    Such as housing and libraries, and health, education

    And unions and co-ops, the first railway station

    So we’re sorry! Bear with us! We invented commuters!

    But we hope you forgive us – we invented computers!

    And this is the place Henry Royce strolled with Rolls

    And we’ve rocked and we’ve rolled with our own Northern Soul

    And so this is the place to do business, then dance

    Where go-getters and goal setters know they’ve a chance

    And this is the place where we first played as kids

    And me Mam lived and died here, she loved it she did

    And this is the place where our folks came to work

    Where they struggled in puddles, they hurt in the dirt

    And they built us a city. They built us these towns

    And they coughed on the cobbles to the deafening sound

    Of the steaming machines and the screaming of slaves

    They were scheming for greatness, they dreamed to their graves

    And they left us a spirit, they left us a vibe

    The Mancunian Way to survive and to thrive

    And to work and to build, to connect and create and

    Greater Manchester’s greatness is keeping it great

    And so this is the place now we’ve kids of our own

    Some are born here, some drawn here but we all call it home

    And they’ve covered the cobbles, but they’ll never defeat

    All the dreamers and schemers who still teem through these streets

    Because this is a place that has been through some hard times

    Oppressions, recessions, depressions and dark times

    But we keep fighting back with Greater Manchester spirit

    Northern grit, northern wit in Greater Manchester’s lyrics

    And there’s hard times again in these streets of our city

    But we won’t take defeat and we don’t want your pity

    Because this a place where we stand strong together

    With a smile on our face, Mancunians Forever

    And we’ve got this* as the place where a team with a dream (*Forever Manchester)

    Can get funding and something to help with their scheme

    Because this is the place that understands your grand plans

    We don’t do No Can Do, we just stress Yes We Can!

    Forever Manchester’s a charity for people round ‘ere

    You can fundraise, donate. You can be a volunteer

    You can live local, give local. We can honestly say

    We do charity differently, that Mancunian Way

    And we fund local kids, and we fund local teams

    We support local dreamers to work for their dreams

    We support local groups and the great work they do

    So can you …help us help… local people like you?

    Because this is the place in our hearts, in our homes

    Because this is the place that’s a part of our bones

    ‘Cos Greater Manchester gives us such strength from the fact

    That this is the place. We should give something back.

    Always remember. Never forget. Forever Manchester.

    Stay Strong Our Kid

    The very reason why PvP is dying and factions are pretty much pointless... Any one remembers the times when campaigns were alliance - locked ? No ball group AP farmers, no faction hoppers, no re-logers, no scroll stealing exploits... every one was fighting for their own alliance and for its Victory in the campaign.... Good old times

    The golden age of PVP. I do miss it very much.

    @marius_buys
    If this is like the usual Midyear Mayhem, you do NOT get boon boxes for the IC repeatable dailies, as they do not award any AP - only Telvar. However, the Cyrodiil quest hub/town repeatable dailies DO give boon boxes (and AP). You can still get double AP and XP for any player kills in IC while you are doing those dailies though, and there are some event achievements which might send you into IC if you are a completionist.

    PSA: We identified an issue where Event Tickets and rewards will not display properly in the rewards UI, but they will be automatically added to your inventory even if you don’t see them in the quest reward UI upon completing the quest. We have a fix scheduled for this on January 15th.

    Have you identified the issue of PvP being nearly unplayable WITHOUT an event going on or do all those threads for the last several years not show up for everyone?

    So, If I understood thing correctly, the reward boxes do not hold anything new, just the same old stuff from previous mayhem. That's rather disappointing - there doesn't seem to be new achievements or collectibles either.

    I suppose the Akaviri motif pages have some value, but I already have all of them on couple of characters and the alliance style pages ain't worth all that much either. After the event, the market is gonna be flooded with them again as many of us have already learned them.

    While some will find the double XP useful too, it has lost a lot of it's significance due o the amount of XP boosting items we are constantly receiving as daily log in rewards. And to those of us well beyond 1000cp it has even less meaning.

    So the only thing to do is any one daily quest each day for the tickets and double AP... Right. Color me unimpressed.

    ...All Hail to Combat Bug, may it always keep reigning in the name of the almighty Lag and may the neverending Queue be with us all ! Amen and thank you... :-((

    At least i am pleased to see that here in the english forum ( unlike in the german one ) some of the long-time inhabitants of Cyrodiil seem to have the voice to speak out that this event is A LITTLE BIT unwelcomed by the majority of AvA-addicted parts of the ESO-community...

    Well, let's get this done, nobody at ZOS seems to listen anyway...

    Dear PvE-Guests, please don't forget that there are some in Cyro who really love what u will be part of in the next days - just try to really support your Alliance, whichever it might be...would be great if the running campaigns would be of some importance to you as well...thank you :-)

    Just did a Scouting quest, turned it in, no tickets showed up in my inventory (under the currency tab).... what gives?

    Edit: Just did all of Bruma's town quests, and another scouting mission...nothing.... this is really not cool.

    I did have 12 tickets when I logged in today. Went and bought my "berries" and that left 2 in my inventory.... after I did all the missions above ....I still have only 2 tickets in my inventory.

    How much AP do Imperial City districts give normally? I thought it was 3k, so during event it should be 6k, but I’m still only getting 3k. Is this a bug or is the Imperial City excluded? The event announcement includes Imperial City so it should be double AP.
