The Dawning has arrived once again as Destiny 2 players look to get in the Holiday spirit by spreading joy across the galaxy. 

Similar to previous years albeit some quality of life changes, the event which will run all the way through 4th January, tasks players with gathering ingredients by performing various duties so they can bake cookies for characters in exchange for gifts.

Recipes require a wide variety of ingredients, with Taken Butter being one of the most sought-after ones in the entire event.

How to get Taken Butter

Taken Butter, as the name suggests, can be found by slaying Taken. You are required to get this ingredient if you want to bake Dark Chocolate Motes for The Drifter, Strange Cookies for Xur, and Classic Butter Cookies for Eva Levante.

The best place to consistently find Taken is on The Dreaming City, the location is filled with them, however, the most recommended spots for your Taken Butter farm are: 

  • The Thrallway in the Shattered Throne dungeon
  • The Blind Well activity
  • Chamber of Starlight Lost Sector
  •  Aphelion’s Rest Lost Sector

Unlike other ingredients, such as the Null Taste, you don't need to deal final blows with any specific type of damage, so in this case, since you need both ingredients to create some recipes, we recommend you try and tackle both at the same time.

So there you have it, Guardian! Better get farming that sweet Taken Butter if you want to hunt down all the rewards for The Dawning in 2021.
