Dawning Quests

With the launch of the Dawning, we have learned of some potential inconsistencies with Eva’s inventory and quest steps. Players can review the following information if they have difficulty locating their quests or ovens: 

  • Players who want to obtain the Dawning quest on multiple characters may need to view all pages of Eva’s inventory to find the quest. 
  • The Dawning quest can only be completed once per account. 
  • If one character has already obtained the Cookie Delivery Helper quest step, alternate characters will need to obtain the quest step from the Quest Archive in the Tower, not from Eva.

Have a good weekend and take care!
