Destiny 2 – How To Farm Essence Of Dawning

Essence of Dawning is the main currency we need in The Dawning 2020 to make and bake cookies for NPCs and vendors. This can be obtained through playlist activities, but there’s a quick and easy way to get this currency. Today I am going to go through how to farm essence of dawning so you can bake all those cookies for the vendors around Destiny 2 and make the most of the Dawning 2020.

For each cookie or treat you want to bake it’s going to take 15 Essence of Dawning. This can be acquired through pretty much any activity like Strikes, Crucible and Gambit. Let’s have a look at the amount of Essence of Dawning you get from activities around the solar system.

Sources of Essence of Dawning

  • Legendary Lost Sectors 15-17
  • Wrathborn Hunts 10-15
  • Dungeons 9
  • Crucible Matches 10-15
  • Strikes 5-15
  • Public Events 5
  • Patrols 1

One of the easiest ways to get Essence of Dawning are from the seasonal activity Wrathborn Hunts. This week in the latest patch there’s been an upgrade to the Lure too so you can store 5 charges instead of just three. So you could combine these methods. Run some strikes to get some Essence and charge up the Lure at the same time. When you have a full charge run some Wrathborn Hunts, you should be able to knock out 100 or so in under an hour.

The most efficient way of getting the Essence of Dawning is the Legend Lost Sectors. If you’re levelled up enough to go in there then these can be completed fairly quickly, plus you can go in there with a fireteam. You won’t be getting the exotic armour drops if you go in with a team, those rewards are for solo challenges – however, this is an efficient way to farm Essence of Dawning. If you can get a team together – either from your clan or from a LFG website, then you should be able to run these legend lost sectors very quickly and stack up that essence of Dawning. For each run you’re going to be getting something like 15-18 and you can run this over and over again.
