Destiny 2 – The Dawning’s Gift Schematic: Failsafe

Destiny 2 Raid Release

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 Failsafe with her gift and get some rewards in return.

If you picked up the Dawning’s Gift Schematic: Failsafe from the pile of gifts, you’ll be working on giving Failsafe a gift. Now, Failsafe is one of our favorite characters in Destiny 2, so we’re going to try extra hard to get this just right. In order to complete the quest, you will need to perform the following feats:

  • Collect 3 Dusklight Crystals from the EDZ
  • Defeat 20 Vex Minotaurs

Collecting Dusklight crystals in the EDZ is very straight forward as you just have to farm resources. Most of the time they’ll just be Dusklight Shards, but once in a while you’ll get the rare variant, the Dusklight Crystal. The best way to defeat 20 Minotaurs is by performing public events or adventures on Nessus. You’ll often run into them as they patrol the areas in the Infinite Forest on Mercury as well, should you feel so inclined. Finally, you can roll the dice and run some strikes. The Inverted Spire strike has quite a few Vex Minotaurs that will oppose you.

Once you’ve completed the requirements of the quest step, you’ll see that the Dawning’s Gift Schematic has turned into Fancy Earrings in your inventory. Now, they may look good on you, but they’re meant for Failsafe, so go visit her on Nessus and give them to her, like a good little Guardian Santa. In return, she’ll reward you with some gifts from the Dawning Gear loot pool. Hopefully you’ll get something nice!
