Now that the holiday season has returned, you've got some Destiny 2 The Dawning 2021 recipes to make. If you've joined in on the festivities before you'll have a good idea of what to expect: Once again everyone's favourite space grandma, Eva Levante, returns to a festively-redesigned Tower to receive your gastronomic goodies.
While Christmas in Destiny 2 isn't all that different this year, there are plenty of new activities to try and loot to claim. As part of Bungie's 30th anniversary celebrations, the Destiny 2 Gjallarhorn (opens in new tab) is finally in our hands again, along with a nostalgic surprise, the Halo CE-inspired Forerunner exotic (opens in new tab). Then there's the new Grasp of Avarice dungeon, which offers the chance of an Eyasluna (opens in new tab) drop.
But as I said, only first-timers will need much of a primer on how The Dawning works, since there are only a couple of new recipes and one new ingredient from last time. Anyway, since you probably don't remember all of these same Destiny 2 The Dawning recipes from 12 whole months ago, here's a refresher.
When does Destiny 2 The Dawning 2021 start and end?
The Destiny 2 The Dawning 2021 start date is December 14, 2021. The Tower will enjoy its festive makeover as part of the weekly reset (opens in new tab) on the same day.
You've got until January 4, 2021 to get all your baking done: The Dawning will end at that day's reset.
How The Dawning works
Just like last year, you're able to combine certain intriguingly-named ingredients to create otherworldly sweeties with the returning Eva Levante, and her Holiday Oven.
You can find out how to get all the ingredients you need below. Most are from killing certain enemies or doing so in a certain way. Some are pretty obvious—Vex Milk from Vex kills, for example—but others less so. Or the clues are some fairly laboured puns, but I'm willing to give them a pass. Perhaps I'm starting to get into the festive spirit.
These ingredients can then be placed in the oven to produce cookies that can be provided to specific vendors in exchange for various gifts.
