Destiny 2 Dawning Riven Gift Guide: How To Give Raid Boss Riven Cookies

The holidays are here in Destiny 2, and as part of the festivities, you'll need to melt a villain's heart with baked goods.

Comments

Destiny 2's holiday event, The Dawning, is back in the Beyond Light expansion. As usual, you'll travel throughout the solar system as part of the event to bake and deliver treats to various characters, while completing new bounties and unlocking new armor rewards. You've got until January 5 to complete all your Dawning requirements, so it's time to get cooking. As with last year's Dawning, you'll need to bring gifts to lots of different characters--including, surprisingly, Riven of a Thousand Voices, the final boss of the Last Wish raid.

If you're still figuring out how to create all the confections, check out our complete Destiny 2 Dawning recipe guide. You should also get a look at our Beyond Light review while you're at it.

At first, the prospect of delivering something to Riven might sound daunting. In most cases, the only way to reach a raid boss is to actually complete a raid, which requires six players and a whole lot of coordination and skill. With the Last Wish raid, however, things are a bit easier. You don't need to fight through the other encounters of the raid in order to reach Riven thanks to the Wishing Wall.

To get to Riven, spawn into the Last Wish raid on the Director map for the Dreaming City. After you enter the first room and listen to Riven's monologue, head through the hole in the left wall until you reach the Kalli encounter. Instead of dropping down to where Kalli waits, jump across the pool to the left to find a path of ledges you can climb up to a hidden room that houses the Wishing Wall. You want to shoot the emblems on the wall to create a specific pattern: the Seventh Wish. Here's what it looks like.

The Wishing Wall requires you to shoot each of the round emblems in order to change the image that appears on it. Bring slow-firing guns with lots of ammo.

Once you enter the right combination, step onto the circular plate on the ground to get teleported to the encounter with Riven. When you arrive, head over to the circle plate to the right and stand on it to get sent downward to the actual fight with Riven. When you arrive, you'll see a small blue snowflake-like projection on the floor near Riven's feet. Activate it and you can deliver the cookie--and you're free to head back to orbit before things get intense.

Once you get to the room with Riven, look for a snowflake projection that'll let you pass the boss its gift.
