Destiny 2: The Dawning Guide
All Platforms

The Dawning is a limited-time live event in Destiny 2 which celebrates the winter season and the spirit of giving. The Dawning begins on December 17, 2019, and ends at the weekly reset on January 14, 2020.

During The Dawning, Eva Levante brings her baking supplies and Holiday Oven for all players to use and create holiday gifts that can be given to all vendors across the system. To create these gifts, players have to defeat various enemies in unique ways to earn materials and use Eva's Holiday Oven 2.0 to combine them into baked gifts.

For more information about The Dawning, please see The Dawning 2019.
 


Participation Requirements

While all players are invited to participate in The Dawning, new players* must first meet the following requirements:

  • Escape the Cosmodrome to unlock the Tower.
  • Achieve 770 Power.

Once new players have met the above requirements, they will unlock a Milestone telling them to speak with Eva Levante in the Tower Courtyard.

*Characters created before the launch of New Light do not have to achieve 770 Power to receive The Dawning quest.

PLEASE NOTE!

Players who are new to Destiny 2 should also review our Destiny 2: New Player Guide.


Quests and Bounties

After players create their first holiday gift and speak to Eva, her full inventory will open up where players can obtain bounties and quests.

Quests and Rewards

Players can acquire quests from Eva that will give them two exotic Dawning Sparrows: the Dawning Cheer Sparrow* and the Alpine Dash Sparrow. Eva will also give players the Holiday Treats emblem for completing "The Dawning Begins" quest.

Recipes and Materials

While Eva will bring her Holiday Oven with her, players will have to go out into the world to gather Materials and Essence of Dawning by defeating enemies and completing various activities in Destiny 2. Once players have enough Materials, they can combine them together to create tasty treats like Gjallardoodles and Dark Chocolate Motes. Players can combine Materials by finding Eva's Holiday Oven 2.0 in their Quests, viewing the Oven's "Details," and selecting the Materials they wish to combine. Be careful, some combinations will result in Burnt Edge Transits.

Players can then give these holiday gifts to vendors across the system, depending on what baked good has been created.
