Destiny 2 Gift Abundance Guide – Dawning 2020 Quest Steps, Goals, Progress

Destiny 2’s annual Dawning event is almost here. Eva Levante is anxiously awaiting her return to the Tower and wants us to help raise humanity’s Dawning Spirit. To do so, we’re all going to have to work together as a community, no separate quests this time! Bungie also appears to have simplified the process a bit, asking everyone to deliver the same cookies using the same ingredients during each step.

Potential Rewards

So far, we don’t know what Bungie has in store for The Dawning. Thanks (again) to datamining, we do know there’s a new Xenophage and Monte Carlo ornament, three new ghost shells, two new ships, and three new sparrows. We also know of this year’s new weapon: Glacioclasm, a fusion rifle. Avalanche and Cold Front also look to be returning with some new perks available.

Step 1: Gift Abundance: Meager – Bake Dead Candy Ghosts for Spider

Our first task is to bake a Dead Candy Ghosts for Spider. You can create these using Dark Ether Cane (from defeating Scorn) and Flash of Inspirations (from generating orbs of power) and then bring them to the Tangled Shore for donation.

The community also needs to reach 50,000,000 Dawning Spirit. We review how to generate Dawning Spirit in this guide.

As a community, raise humanity’s Dawning Spirit.

Bake Dead Candy Ghosts (Dark Ether Cane + Flash of Inspiration) and deliver to Spider in the Tangled Shore.

“The people are struggling, but they give what they can.” —Eva Levante

Step 2: Speak with Eva – Return to Eva Levante

As a reward for all those cookies we gave Spider, Eva has a gift for us! It’s only a Meager Dawning Present which contains “a simple reward.”

“Such a lovely little gift.” —Eva Levante

Step 3: Gift Abundance: Modest – Bake Dark Chocolate Motes for Drifter

This time we’re making Dark Chocolate Motes for Drifter. You can create these using Taken Butter (from defeating Taken) and Null Taste (from Void kills) and then bring them to his nook in the Tower for donation.

You only need to deliver one cookie yourself, but the community needs to reach 125,000,000 Dawning Spirit.

Bake Dark Chocolate Motes (Taken Butter + Null Taste) and deliver to Drifter in the Tower.

“Dawning isn’t about the gifts… but they do make it a bit nicer.” —Eva Levante

Step 4: Return to Eva – Claim Your Next Gift

Once again, Eva has a present for us. This time in the form of a, well, Modest Dawning Present with a “few festive rewards.”

“Everyone has been chipping in. Isn’t that lovely?” —Eva Levante

Step 5: Gift Abundance: Adequate – Bake Eliksni Birdseed for Hawthorne

We’re still in the Tower and making food for Hawthorne’s bird. You can create Eliksni Birdseed using Ether Cane (from defeating Fallen) and Personal Touch (from melee kills) and then bring them straight to Hawthorne at her perch above the city. Just make it quick or she’ll ramble on about the Red War like we haven’t had anything significant happen in the last three years.

You only need to deliver one cookie yourself, but the community needs to reach 250,000,000 Dawning Spirit.

As a community, raise humanity’s Dawning Spirit.

Bake Eliksni Birdseed (Ether Cane + Personal Touch) and deliver to Hawthorne in the Tower.

“It warms my heart to see such a display of holiday spirit!” —Eva Levante

Step 5: Return to Eva – Claim Your Next Gift

I guess our efforts are finally adequate. Only adequate?! Whatever. Just go get our “several festive rewards” and let’s move onto the next step.

“The people are giving so much. They want you to feel truly appreciated!” —Eva Levante

Step 6: Gift Abundance: Generous – Bake Donut Holes for Ikora

I was going to comment on how we’re doing all of these Tower deliveries and then I remembered we kind of lost a bunch of planets to the Darkness. RIP to those folks.

Anyway, Ikora time. You can create Donut Holes using Cabal Oil (from defeating Cabal) and Flash of Inspiration (from generating orbs of power) and then walk them about ten feet from Hawthorne.

You only need to deliver one cookie yourself, but the community needs to reach 500,000,000 Dawning Spirit.

As a community, raise humanity’s Dawning Spirit.

Bake Traveler Donut Holes (Cabal Oil + Flash of Inspiration) and deliver to Ikora in the Tower.

“It seems you’ve touched many hearts this season! I expected nothing less from you!” —Eva Levante

Step 7: Speak with Eva – It’s Eva Time

Okay, finally we’re at an acceptable level. This Generous Dawning Presents package comes with “many festive rewards.” It’s also the first to reach Legendary rarity so hopefully there’s something good in here. But we have one more step to go for the exotic rewards.

“Oh my… this is almost too much!” —Eva Levante

Step 8: Gift Abundance: Overflowing – Bake Lavender Ribbon Cookies for Saint-14

Oh, Saint! Right, right. As someone who doesn’t do Trials, he could certainly use some attention in the Tower. You can create Lavender Ribbon Cookies for him using Vex Milk (from defeating Vex) and Personal Touch (from melee kills) and then head on over to that side of the Tower.

You only need to deliver one cookie yourself, but the community needs to reach 1,000,000,000 Dawning Spirit. Double the previous goal.

As a community, raise humanity’s Dawning Spirit.

Bake Lavender Ribbon Cookies (Vex Milk + Personal Touch) and deliver to Saint-14 in the Hangar.

“The people of the Last City are so grateful! How wonderful!” —Eva Levante

Step 9: Return to Eva One Final Time

The last container is exotic and has “an abundance of festive rewards!” Go on and open it to close out this quest line!

“I can scarcely believe it! This is a Dawning miracle!” —Eva Levante
