Destiny 2: Dawning 2021 Recipe Guide

It’s that special time of year when every game seems to boast a holiday event, and Destiny 2 is no exception. The Dawning event is taking place, giving players ample opportunity to spread holiday cheer to all their favorite NPCs. The free event is running until January 4, 2022, and features a heap load of new and returning recipes for players to check out and craft with the help of Eva Levante. Here’s how to find materials for these recipes, as well as craft them in Destiny’s 2021 Dawning event.

Dawning Event Bounties And Quests

Before really starting this event, players will need to speak with Eva Levante to craft one gift to give to an NPC. After that, you’ll have access to her bounties, quests, and upgrades. Completing these bounties and delivering cookies earns you Dawning Spirit, which can then be traded back to Eva for event-related upgrades. These upgrades, like Merrymaker and Harvest, stick around throughout the event and provide extra rewards or utility for the event activities. 

There are even a few quests that Eva carries to earn some of the event’s items this year. These quests, Rite of Dawning and The Pigeon Provides, are relatively simple and straightforward quests. Follow along through them and you’ll unlock the Zephyr legendary sword and Vapoorwill Spin exotic ship.

Bounties are separated into weekly, daily, and additional challenges. Completing Weeklies rewards the player with Essence of Dawning and Bright Dust; Dailies offer event ingredients; Additionals offer both Bright Dust and a random ingredient. You’ll want to complete as many dailies as possible in order to build up your ingredient stockpile of ingredients. The bulk of this event is cooking different cookie recipes and delivering them to NPCs, so you’ll want to make sure your pantry is well stocked.

Rewards For Dawning Event 2021

As previously mentioned, the main two rewards for this year’s Dawning event are the Zephyr legendary sword and Vapoorwill Spin exotic ship. If you don’t like the original Zephyr sword you got from completing Eva’s quest, you can always reroll it by turning in cookies to an NPC. Doing so will give you the option to pick up another Zephyr, as well as weapons from Dawning events of years past.
