The Dawning has begun in Destiny 2, and cookie time is here. Part of the Dawning event involves cooking lots of tasty treats for various NPCs in the game. To do this, you need different ingredients, and each recipe requires Essence of Dawning, so knowing how to get it is essential.
Essence of Dawning will drop when you complete just about any activity in the game. Different activities will give you different amounts, so it is a good idea to know how much will drop from each one, so you can decide how to spend your time.
Below you will find the Essence of Dawning drops from previous events. We will make any changes and update this when we learn them.
- Patrols – 1 to 3
- Public Events – 5
- Gambit – 17 to 22
- Nightfalls – 23
- Forge Completion – 10
- Crucible matches – 12 to 17
- Strikes – 15
- Wrathborn Hunts – 15
Eva Levante also has daily bounties you can do that reward you with Essence of Dawning. You can get them from her in the Tower, near Eververse.
The quickest way at the moment seems to be by doing Wrathborn hunts. These can be done very quickly, especially the Savak hunt, and will give you 15 Essence of Dawning. Best of all, you get the reward even if you do not have a full charged lure. Only one person in the group needs to have a charged lure with the Savak mod in it, and if they don’t hit the boss at all, the lure will stay charged, and they will still get the Essence of Dawning, allowing them to just repeat the Hunt over and over again.
