The Dawning – Ingredients and Recipes

Last modified date

Eva's Holiday Oven 2.0

So it’s that time of the year. Snow is falling, the fire is stoked. Ingredients & recipes means you might be thinking “Christmas cookies?”


It’s the annual Destiny Dawning Event. Everyone knows the dawning is about that juicy store swag you want. I mean look at it. A bread emote! Now you could go spend your hard earned money on these things or you could grind out for bright dust… a lot… of… bright dust. 

The dawning consists of a few quests that require you to combine ingredients and bake goods after discovering their recipes, and deliver them to people around the different planetary locations. And, if you’re like me, you didn’t participate last year so NONE of the recipes are unlocked. So this article is for us, the filthy casuals who don’t have enough time to mix and match ingredients and really just need to get as much bright dust as possible so we can buy all the things.

Let’s get started.

You’re going to want to drop in the tower and head to Eva. There, she will give you two quests and her 2.0 easy bake oven. She will also offer bounties, but we’ll circle back to those in a minute. The first two slots in this oven are where you can “add” ingredients. However, if you’re just starting this quest you’ll soon realize that you have NO ingredients. In order to get your ingredients you’ll have to venture out and kill many different enemy types with many different weapon types and elements.

The third spot in the oven is for the “Essence of Dawning” This is something that you will need to complete EVERY RECIPE. You will need 15 to complete each recipe. That is, until you masterwork the oven, which will then require only 10 essence. To get these fast, just do LITERALLY ANY ACTIVITY. Strikes, Crucible, Gambit, Sundial, etc. For more info, check out my other post or youtube video.

Each one will reward you around 11-17 Essence of Dawning, which is enough for one recipe. My choice is gonna be for strikes and sundial, mainly because you can complete bounties while you do them, get rewards, and gather ingredients. It’s a win win.

Now remember; in order to do this in the fastest and best way I would recommend finishing the specific bakes on the Quests you get from Eva, then completing one of EVERY recipe. Once your oven is masterworked you can just mass bake a bunch of sweets until you get the 120 you need to finish the mega bounty from Eva.

Remember those bounties I mentioned?

Eva has bounties for the event that range from killing things to baking things. The benefit is that THEY ARE DOUBLE XP! That’s right. You can get bright dust and double XP from finishing Eva’s bounties. I would recommend doing them after you finish your oven and quests, but to each their own. 

Anyways, happy Dawning ya filthy animals.
