Destiny 2: The Dawning Guide via

For details about The Dawning event visit:



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.

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

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


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.

Dawning Cheer


Holiday Treats

*Players who acquired the Dawning Cheer Sparrow during The Dawning 2018 event won’t receive this quest unless their Sparrow wasn’t fully upgraded. 


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 Double XP and Materials, and Additional Bounties will reward Double XP and Bright Dust.




Additionally, Eva will offer three Dawning Cheer bounties that will upgrade the Dawning Cheer Sparrow for players who didn’t upgrade it during The Dawning 2018 event: Titan and Warlock requires players to bake gifts for Ikora and Sloane, Sniper and Scribe requires players to bake gifts for Asher and Devrim, and Gunsmith and Navigator requires players to bake gifts for Banshee-44 and Failsafe.

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

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.
