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 Zavala with his gift and get some rewards in return.
Dawning’s Gift Schematic: Zavala
If you picked up the Dawning’s Gift Schematic: Zavala from the pile of gifts, you’ll be working on giving the Vanguard Commander a gift. The leader of the group that protects the tower and its citizens deserves a proper gift, so strap in. In order to complete the quest, you will need to perform the following feats:
- Collect 10 Phaseglass Needles
- Defeat 50 Red Legion
Io is where you will find Phaseglass Needle resources. They’re scattered all over the place and stand out quite a bit, however, the newly added snow can make it a bit more confusing, so pay close attention. Fortunately, Io is also littered with Red Legion Cabal, so you can take those out as well. You can also run just about any story mission that you can pick up from Ikora Rey as a Meditation.
Ghaul Stress Toy
Once you’ve completed the requirements of the quest step, you’ll see that the Dawning’s Gift Schematic has turned into a Ghaul Stress Toy in your inventory. Bit of a strange toy for the Vanguard Commander, but head to the tower and give it to Zavala anyway. In return, he’ll reward you with some gifts from the Dawning Gear loot pool. Hopefully you’ll get something nice!
