How to Earn Event Tickets During Midyear Mayhem in Elder Scrolls Online
By Jack O'Dwyer
We've broken down some of the best strategies to earn event tickets in Cyrodiil without getting ganked.
Elder Scrolls Online's (ESO) Midyear Mayhem event is back for the first time since the release of the new Blackwood expansion chapter. With a new expansion comes a wave of new and returning players eager to enjoy the festivities in-game. Unfortunately for some, Midyear Mayhem tends not to be for the faint of heart—or the experienced PvE player.
Here are some of the best, simplest ways to earn tickets during Midyear Mayhem.
How to Earn Tickets During Midyear Mayhem
1. Pick a Limited Campaign
Those new to PvP should steer clear of campaigns that allow Champion Point bonuses or last longer—especially if they have yet to hit base level 50, let alone CP 160. These campaigns tend to be full of other inexperienced players or those looking to help newcomers learn the ropes. As such, it may be easier to complete objectives or travel Cyrodiil in general.
2. Join (or Start) a Pick-Up Group (PUG)
Don't be afraid to be a little social in Cyrodiil. Groups are the best way to complete several objectives at once and typically group members are happy to help each other, share quests, and work to earn the ticket cap for the day. Player bounties can be a great quest to pick up with groups, as well as resource and fort captures. Ambitious groups may even find themselves wanting to rescue or steal an Elder Scroll.
3. Focus on Simple Missions
Scouting is the easiest for solo players. I have fond memories of getting the lay of the land while traveling alone to separate resources. This may be risky, as traveling by yourself means there's no back-up if stronger players decide to attack, but it's also more difficult to be spotted.
Smaller groups would be able to capture outposts and resources surrounding nearby forts or districts in the Imperial City. Large groups can lay siege or go for scroll.
