Destiny 2 The Dawning 2019: A Comprehensive Guide to Ingredients, Recipes, and Rewards

The Dawning has arrived, bringing holiday cheer and an abundance of cookies to Destiny 2. Similar to the Halloween-themed Festival of the Lost, The Dawning is a special seasonal event packed with its own activities, materials, and rewards. This year, the event will span four weeks, giving players ample time to immerse themselves in the festivities. Here’s everything you need to know to make the most of The Dawning.

How does The Dawning work?

Upon launching the game, head straight to the tower and make your way to the Eververse kiosk. Here, you’ll find a new vendor named Eva Levante, who exudes perpetual cheerfulness. Engage in conversation with her to receive a multitude of quests.

Let’s start with the basics. The premise of the entire event revolves around gathering ingredients to bake cookies and other delectable treats. These treats can then be delivered to various vendors throughout the game in exchange for valuable loot.

To accomplish this, you’ll need to utilize Eva’s Holiday Oven 2.0, which can be found in your Quests tab. Inspect the oven, and you’ll be able to commence your baking endeavors. Each treat requires three key components: enemy-based ingredients, kill-based ingredients, and 15 Essence of Dawn. Once you’ve acquired all of these, simply combine them in the oven and craft your desired treat. Initially, you won’t possess any recipes, so a bit of trial and error is necessary to determine your culinary creations.

The other crucial aspect of this year’s event are Eva’s bounties. These bounties offer a variety of rewards, ranging from specific ingredients to Essences of Dawn. However, the primary allure lies in the fact that completing these bounties grants double XP. So even if you’re not feeling particularly festive, it’s still worthwhile to pick up these bounties as they contribute significantly to your season pass progress.

If you find yourself overwhelmed by the multitude of activities, here’s a basic flow to follow: acquire bounties, collect ingredients by playing the game, utilize ingredients to bake treats in Eva’s oven, and finally, deliver the treats to vendors in exchange for enticing rewards.

How do I obtain ingredients?

Ingredients are random drops obtained by vanquishing specific types of enemies or dispatching enemies in particular ways. Each ingredient has a distinct requirement, and successfully fulfilling it gives you a chance of acquiring the corresponding ingredient. Although Eva’s bounties can also yield ingredients, the easiest method is simply playing the game.

The following are the requirements for each ingredient.

Oven Slot 1 Ingredients: Enemies

  • Vex Milk: Defeat Vex enemies.
  • Ether Cane: Overcome Fallen foes.
  • Cabal Oil: Dispose of Cabal adversaries.
  • Chitin Powder: Eliminate Hive creatures.

Oven Slot 3: Essence of Dawn

For every recipe, you’ll need to add 15 Essence of Dawn to the oven’s third slot. Fortunately, these are easily obtainable by participating in various activities. The amount of Essence of Dawn you receive depends on the length and complexity of the activity. For instance, completing a regular public event may grant you five Essence of Dawn, while conquering a crucible match can yield approximately 15. Some bounties also reward Essence of Dawn. Ultimately, as long as you engage in typical gameplay, you won’t face a scarcity of this essential ingredient.

Now that you’re equipped with the knowledge of cooking and ingredient acquisition, let’s explore the wide array of recipes available. The oven will display the complete list of treats, but the method of preparation will only be revealed once you’ve successfully baked each treat. If you aren’t keen on spending hours experimenting in a culinary laboratory, here’s a breakdown of every recipe and the corresponding NPC you need to deliver it to.

  • Vanilla Blades (Shaxx): Cabal Oil + Sharp Flavor
  • Gjallardoodles (Zavala): Ether Cane + Delicious Explosion
  • Traveler Donut Holes (Ikora): Cabal Oil + Flash of Inspiration

What are the rewards?

The Dawning offers mainly cosmetic rewards, although embarking on the quest immediately grants you a new gun. After conversing with Eva, she’ll assign you the task of creating a treat for Zavala. Once you’ve baked it to perfection, deliver it to him and receive a well-deserved present. Open your consumables tab to discover Cold Front, a winter-themed submachine gun.

The primary objective of The Dawning is to unlock Alpine Dash, an exotic sparrow. Achieving this requires baking 50 treats, including Fractal Rolls for Brother Vance and Dark Chocolate Motes for The Drifter. Additionally, you can enhance the sparrow by completing additional quests offered by Ava, which will necessitate baking even more treats.

The good news is that progress from last year carries over to this event. If you extensively baked in 2018, you’ll notice that you’ve already made significant progress towards your goals.

If you missed last year’s festivities, fear not. You’ll have an opportunity to acquire Avalanche, a machine gun that was exclusively available during the 2018 event. Furthermore, Ava presents a quest that enables you to obtain last year’s Dawning Cheer exotic sparrow.

Naturally, a Destiny event wouldn’t be complete without an abundance of new cosmetic items from Eververse. If you desire holiday-themed emotes or transmat effects, feel free to indulge by investing some real-world currency.
