The Dawning is Destiny 2‘s holiday event and brings with it snowball fights, new loot, and of course, gifts. These gifts aren’t free, however, as Guardians will have to work for them. After picking up a random gift from Today’s Gift Schematics, you’ll need to assemble it by completing a few tasks, and then bring it to its intended recipient. This guide will show you how to present Cayde-6 with his gift and get some rewards in return.

If you picked up the Dawning’s Gift Schematic: Cayde from the pile of gifts, you’ll be working on giving Cayde-6 a gift. Cayde’s a bit of a strange dude, so his gift won’t be an off the shelf purchase. In order to complete the quest, you will need to perform the following feats:

  • Collect 10 Dusklight Shards from the EDZ
  • Defeat 15 Wizards

Collecting Dusklight crystals in the EDZ is very straight forward and picking up ten of them should take very little time. The best way to defeat 15 Wizards is by performing the public event in the rig on Titan. There are several around that area as well, so just keep cycling through until you get all 15 kills.

Chicken-Sized Horn and Cape

Once you’ve completed the requirements of the quest step, you’ll see that the Dawning’s Gift Schematic has turned into a Chicken-Sized Horn and Cape in your inventory. Of course it’s for Cayde-6, so go deliver it to him. In return, he’ll reward you with some gifts from the Dawning Gear loot pool. Hopefully you’ll get something nice!
