About Ed Thorn

Ed joined Metabomb in May 2017 and puts together many guides across the site.

Our Destiny 2 Dawning 2018 guide contains the release date, and also details rewards, quests and weapons which are coming to the game this Christmas.

For Destiny 2’s Christmas festivities this year, Bungie’s stepped up the Dawning for all involved. Eva Levante is back in the Tower, and this time she’s brought some of her favourite recipes with her.

Yes that’s right, we’re all encouraged to get baking this year. Baking loot of course. There’s an oven (of course), and we’ll need to gather the materials needed to create a wholesome dish. Other NPCs in the world will also help us achieve our baking goals, and provide us with the opportunity to earn special ingredients for powerful rewards.

It’s certainly going to be the most exciting Dawning event yet, and we’ve rounded up everything that you need to know about it just below.

If you're after a list of all the recipes and how to get every ingredient in this year's Dawning event, make sure you head on over to our Dawning 2018 - Recipe list and Where to find all ingredients page!

The Dawning 2018: Eva Levante and Baking Rewards

Eva Levante’s returning to the Tower with a magical oven and some special baking recipes. It’s up to you to find the ingredients and pop them in the oven for special Dawning themed loot.

You’ll find all sorts of ingredients by defeating enemies and completing various activities in Destiny 2. Once you’ve found them, you can combine them for treats like Gjallardoodles or Chocolate Ship Cookies. What’s most exciting is the experimentation involved. It’s up to you to try different combinations and discover all new recipes which could grant you some seriously tasty treats.

Once you’ve got a handful of treats, you can then give them to the friends you’ve made throughout the solar system for rewards. There will also be bounties to complete along with your cookbook. Here’s a preview of the rewards you’ll have a chance to earn:

  • Enhancement Cores
  • Mods
  • Legendary Gear
  • Avalanche Heavy Machinegun, featuring random rolls

Here’s a look at the new Avalanche Machinegun reward.

As you gather ingredients and bake items, you will progress towards unlocking this festive Sparrow.

This ride comes equipped with some exclusive perks:

Glimmer Boost

While boosting, the Sparrow spawns a glimmer present every few seconds, until boost runs out. Glimmer presents burst open after a moment so that players can acquire the glimmer.

Only active during the dawning.

Glimmer Trick

When the player lands a trick with the Sparrow, 3 to 5 glimmer presents are spawned.

Only active during the Dawning.

Instant Summon

Reduces Sparrow summon time significantly.

The Dawning 2018: Eververse Rewards

It wouldn’t be the Dawning without new wares from the Eververse. First off, there will be double engram drops every time you level up, with players receiving both a Bright and Dawning Engram. There will also be a “knock-out” list on the Dawning Engram, preventing you from receiving duplicate items until you’ve earned them all - good stuff.

Here’s a look at a lovely ship and Ghost.

Oh, and there are multiplayer emotes now too!
