Unlock all recipes so you can Masterwork your Holiday Oven. The upgraded oven decreases the Essence of Dawning requirement for each recipe from 15 to 10.

Where to get Essence of Dawning

The Essence of Dawning can drop from pretty much any activity in the game. Currently, the fastest way to farm them is by doing Wrathborn Hunts (use Prey Mod: Savek) and Legend Lost Sectors—get a fireteam so you can clear them more quickly. The Essence of Dawning also drops after completing playlist activities, which you need to do anyway to charge up the Cryptolith Lure for Wrathborn Hunts.

The Dawning started on December 14, 2021 and will end on January 4, 2022.

The Dawning event in Destiny 2 always comes with a special holiday-themed aesthetic for the Tower.
