Destiny 2 – The Dawning’s Gift Schematic: Hawthorne

Destiny 2

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 Hawthorne with her gift and get some rewards in return.

If you picked up the Dawning’s Gift Schematic: Hawthorne from the pile of gifts, you’ll be heading out to perform a couple of errands, like you do for everyone else. Apparently Hawthorne’s falcon is experiencing some issues that we may be able to help alleviate. In order to complete the quest, you will need to perform the following feats:

  • Collect 3 Alkane Spores
  • Defeat 50 Enemies on Nessus

Killing 50 enemies of any sort on Nessus is a piece of cake. Just hit up a public event or two and call it a day. Alkane Spores are the rare version of the resource on Titan. Fortunately, Alkane resources are common, but it will take a while and some luck to collect three of the rare variety. Once you’ve found one, there appears to be a glitch where if you move the Alkane Spore to your vault and back into your inventory, it completes the task. Don’t tell Bungie.

Ornithological Sedatives

Once you’ve completed the requirements of the quest step, you’ll see that the Dawning’s Gift Schematic has turned into Ornithological Sedatives in your inventory. Apparently this is really helping Louis, Hawthorne’s falcon, so you can sleep well tonight knowing you’ve helped him out. In return, she’ll reward you with some gifts from the Dawning Gear loot pool. Hopefully you’ll get something nice!
