How to get Essence of Dawning in Destiny 2

Our faithful oven needs more power.

Whether you're baking a snickerdoodle cookie for Zavala, or a Hive Knight flavored cookie for Drifter, it's always frustrating to run out of ingredients. Essence of Dawning is crucial for any baking aficionado, as it gives Eva's Holiday Oven 2.1 enough power to heat the pastries. Although the game requires you to have Essence of Dawning, it doesn't explicitly tell you where to find this material. Here's how to get Essence of Dawning in Destiny 2.

Where do you get Essence of Dawning in Destiny 2?

To get Essence of Dawning, you must complete activities anywhere in Destiny 2. Playlist matches, Public Events, Patrols, and seasonal activities grant Essence of Dawning, but the amount depends on the difficulty of the activity. Completing individual missions from The Witch Queen campaign awards a whopping 17 Essence, but smaller challenges like Patrols only grant you two Essence.

Eva Levante also offers Weekly Bounties that grant 30 Essence of Dawning each, which are a great way to farm this material. Since baking a single cookie costs 15 Essence of Dawning, you can easily obtain four cookies worth of Essence through only two Bounties. Other than Weekly Bounties, the best way to farm this material is by repeating campaign missions in The Witch Queen. Each mission grants you enough Essence for one cookie, so when you don't feel like grinding out playlist matches, try replaying the campaigns for a refreshing experience.
