Guides and more info below!



Dec 15 – Jan 05 | Free for All Players

“Traditions like this are more important than ever during hard times. Slow down. Look around you. It will remind you of what you’re fighting for.” —Eva Levante”

Visit Eva Levante in the Tower starting next week, December 15. Check out the info below (from Bungie website). This post will be updated with more details next week, once the event is live.

Details: Visit Official Event Page | Official Guide | Watch Trailer



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.

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

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.

Dawning Spirit: Players will collect Dawning Spirit through several Destiny 2 activities during the Dawning 2020. Collecting Dawning Spirit through completing activities will progress Dawning-themed quests and bounties.

Quests and Rewards: Players can acquire quests from Eva that will give them the Starfarer 7M that can be upgraded through completing the “All to a Good Flight” quest. Completing “All to a Good Flight” will reward players the Glacioclasm fusion rifle. Eva will also give players the Holiday Treats emblem for completing “The Dawning Begins” quest. Players will also be able to purchase two exotic Dawning Sparrows with Glimmer and Legendary Shards: the Dawning Cheer Sparrow and the Alpine Dash Sparrow.

Bounties: Eva offers three different Dawning Bounties which will reward players for completing them: Weekly Bounties will reward Essence of Dawning and Bright Dust, Daily Bounties will reward different Ingredients, and Additional Bounties will reward Bright Dust and a random ingredient. All bounties offer XP and Dawning Spirit.

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, as 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. (See recipe list below)

Triumphs: During The Dawning, players can complete Dawning-related Triumphs for rewards. To track progress toward Dawning Triumphs, players should visit their Triumphs character menu, go into the Seasonal node, and navigate to the Events > The Dawning subpage.

Players have until The Dawning ends at the weekly reset on January 5, 2021, to complete Dawning Triumphs. Once The Dawning concludes, these Triumphs will no longer be eligible for progress, and incomplete Triumphs will be hidden.

For the latest information on known issues discovered after The Dawning has gone live on December 15, 2020, players should look to the vital information thread in the #Help forum.




Even the biting chill of Europa can’t freeze the warm hearts of Guardians during this special time of year. Eva Levante welcomes you to the Tower to learn a new recipe, to find an unexpected gift or two, and take a trip in your tricked-out Exotic ship while you’re at it. Spread cheer and get gear… The Dawning has returned.



A delicious holiday treat has a few requirements: a handy recipe, the finest ingredient materials for you to gather, and a primed Holiday Oven. New vendors and seasonal rewards await!



Celebrate the season and spread good cheer! Earn Dawning Spirit by completing missions, bounties, and recipes. With personal and communal goals available, the more Spirit that Guardians generate, the better the rewards that Eva will have for everyone to share.



Enjoy a cozy ride in a new Exotic ship, complete with a smorgasbord of features. Generate Dawning Spirit to unlock your ship’s aesthetic delights, including three selectable engine effects, a unique transmat effect, an animated shader that’s as unique as the ship itself, and more!




Earn the new Legendary Fusion Rifle Glacioclasm and show the enemies of humanity that, even though this is a season of forgiveness, the forecast still calls for pain. (NOTE: Random rolls are available on this weapon)

Glacioclasm Perks:

  • High-Impact Frame: Slow-firing and high-damage. This weapon is more accurate when stationary and aiming down sights.
  • High-Impact Reserves: Rounds at the end of the magazine deal more damage.



Looking for something special to spruce things up? Tess has just what you need to finish off your holiday décor, from an elf-themed Ghost shell (shelf not included) to weapon ornaments that will turn heads as you trim down your naughty list.

NOTE: All of the new Dawning items added to the store will be available at some point for Bright Dust with the exception of the Glee Barrage and Merry Maker weapon ornaments and Happy Trails finisher which will be available for Silver.
