Destiny 2: The Dawning – Celebrate your Light! (Dec 19 – Jan 9)

The Dawning // Limited Time Special Event

Event Ends: Tuesday, Jan 9 @ 9AM PST / 12PM EST / 5PM GMT > LAST WEEK!

To begin The Dawning Event visit Tess at Eververse to receive your first Dawning Engram. Then stop by and visit Ikora, she will give you the Weekly Milestone and reward you with a Light of the Dawning Emblem. After this make sure to interact with the gift schematics next to Ikora to receive Today’s Gift Daily Milestone. Read below for more info.

How to Earn Dawning Loot:

Strike out to Celebrate Milestone:

  • Complete 5 matches in the Mayhem Crucible playlist and 5 Strikes (You may complete any of the following Heroic, Normal, or Nightfall Strikes).
  • Once you have completed this milestone you will receive a Boon of the Dawning and a Dawning Engram. The Boon of the Dawning gives all players a gift at the end of a strike or crucible activity.
  • Get this milestone by visiting Ikora at the Tower. You can complete this milestone on all characters once per week. However, only the first character that completes this milestone for the week will receive the Dawning Engram, not all characters.

Today’s Gift Milestone:

  • Interact with the Dawning Gift schematic next to Ikora to pick up the schematic.
  • To complete this, open the schematic located in your ghost shell inventory slot (make sure you have space or it will go to the postmaster) and see what resources you will need gather to finish it.
  • Once you get all the required resources, return to the NPC and turn in the schematic. You will be rewarded with a Dawning unique item.
  • You can get Today’s Gift Milestone on all characters, once per day. If you have completed all of the Today’s Gift Milestone Schematics (even if you have some uncompleted in your ghost slot) you may just get the Dawning specific reward right away on each character when you try to pick up a new schematic instead of getting a new schematic.

All Gift Schematic’s Available:

Spreading Holiday Cheer

  • Upon completing the “Welcome to the Dawning” Milestone on each character, players will be directed to complete the “Spreading Holiday Cheer” Milestone. This Milestone may be completed once per week, per character, for rewards.

Today’s Gift

Vital Information

Listed below are known issues and vital information for The Dawning.

  • Accessing Dawning-themed activities: Players still in the Tower, Farm, or open world activities when The Dawning goes live will need to return to Orbit and relaunch to see The Dawning versions of these spaces. This may require multiple tries. Updated playlist activities will be available immediately after The Dawning is live.
  • Dawning’s Gift Schematic: Rahool: The Gift Schematic for Master Rahool lists only that players must collect engrams as part of its completion requirements. Only Legendary Engrams and Exotic Engrams will progress this requirement. Rare Engrams or lower do not progress this step.

by Destiny Dev Team

“The Traveler is awake. For Humanity, a new Golden Age has begun. This year’s Dawning is unlike any other—it’s not just the renewal that a new year brings, but the dawn of something greater. Now more than ever, we must gather together in the Tower, at the Farm, and all across the system to give thanks. Our Light has returned—and it illuminates everything around us.”

—Ikora Rey, Warlock Vanguard

Happy Dawning to All

It may be cold outside, but there’s a warmth in the air. As the year comes to an end, the Tower and Farm are decorated with festive cheer. It’s a time to celebrate your Light.

Snowball Fights

Guardians aren’t just arming themselves with weapons. There are snowball piles everywhere you look. In the Tower and at the Farm, you can tag your friends for bragging rights. In Strikes, you can blast an enemy with a snowball to stun them and deal big damage. Stay frosty out there.

Mayhem in the Cold

Keep your blood warm and your heart pumping in the Crucible. Mayhem is back, so your abilities recharge faster. Point values are cranked up enough to melt the ice. It’s anarchy—and it’s awesome.

Milestones of Winter

Engage in Crucible Mayhem or become legend in Strikes and you’ll be rewarded. Every week, complete a milestone for a Dawning engram. Get in the giving mood with new consumables that give rewards to everyone you’re playing with. If there’s a specific Dawning item that you have your heart set on, Tess will refresh her inventory each week, enabling you to use your Bright Dust reserves for your holiday shopping. On one week or another during the three-week event, you’ll find every Dawning-themed exotic (ship, ghost, sparrow, emote) and every Dawning-themed legendary armor piece on her shelves.

Gifting and Receiving

Pick up a Dawning Gift Schematic from the Bazaar. Venture to other worlds and craft a unique gift for the vendors and agents you find in the Tower and beyond. Then, give the lucky recipient their gift and receive a gift in return. You can participate in the season of giving every day of the event.

The Dawning begins on Tuesday, December 19.

The Dawning ends on Tuesday, January 9.

Let’s usher in a new year, and a new Golden Age together.
