DESTINY 2 | Weekly Reset – Final Week of The Dawning, Milestone & More (January 2nd) by Arekkz Gaming

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.
