Essence of Dawning Uses

Essence of Dawning is used during The Dawning to bake goodies, which can be done in Eva’s Holiday Oven.

Aside from Essence of Dawning, you will also need certain ingredients which can be obtained from enemies based on how you defeat them.

Later on, once you have masterworked Eva’s Holiday Oven, the costs of Essence of Dawning will be reduced when you bake certain goodies.


Essence of Dawning is really easy to farm, as long as you know where to go and what to do but we have found that doing Gambit, Strikes, and Crucible is the best way.

Since you can get a lot of other rewards along with Essence of Dawning, they make the perfect choice to progress parallelly during the game.

The more Essence of Dawning you have, the more goodies you can bake, which later lets you get rewards from the NPCs you give them to.
