How to Get Essence of Dawning in Destiny 2
Destiny 2’s The Dawning event is live and once you get started, you’re going to learn real quick that you need lots of Essence of Dawning. Here’s how to get Essence of Dawning so you can complete all the recipes you need to make everyone in the Tower happy and more importantly, get the sweet new exotic sparrow.
Essence of Dawning is the main currency used in just about every recipe you’re going to bake in Eva’s Holiday Oven. She starts you off with a few to get you going on your first delivery to Zavala, but after that, you have to get your own. Here are a few of the best ways to get some to speed up your baking process.
Complete Eva’s daily bounties. These will reward you with five per pop which is nothing to sneeze at and will simply task you with going out and doing things you were already doing anyway.
Go out and do activities. Completing certain activities will reward you with Essence of Dawning. The event is new, so we’re still sorting out what drops what, but Heroic activities like Public Events, Strikes, and Adventures seem to do the trick.
It might seem like a lot of work, but it’s worth the effort. You’ll be rewarded handsomely from your friends and allies all around the system.
