How To Get Cosmic Sugar Cube In Destiny 2 Dawning Event

The Destiny 2 30th Anniversary Pack launched in December 2021 and with it, a new star was born. A Starhorse to be more precise. The magical new NPC has stolen the show with the game's new Dares of Eternity activity and a week later, we have yet another reason to celebrate the game's cosmic horse. Bungie has seen it fit to grant the character its own Dawning Recipe, in the form of the mysterious Cosmic Sugar Cube. However, unlike the rest of The Dawning recipes that must be baked in Eva Levante's Holiday Oven using a variety of ingredients, it's a bit more tricky to get this particular item. Read on, we'll explain everything you need to know.

How To Get Cosmic Sugar Cube In Destiny 2

To bake recipes in The Dawning event, players must traditionally combine two ingredients in order to bake a cookie for each NPC vendor in the game. And by extension, earning these ingredients normally involves defeating enemies in a variety of different ways.

The Cosmic Sugar Cube, however, is completely different from every other recipe in the game, for one, it requires no ingredients and secondly, it does not need to be baked in Eva's Holiday Oven.

In order to get the Cosmic Sugar Cube players must play the Dares of Eternity activity and will earn the item as a random drop from defeating the Treasure Ogre boss, which sometimes (but not always) spawns during the activity's second boss encounter.

So yes, unfortunately, the only way to earn the Cosmic Sugar Cube is through blind luck and replaying the Dares of Eternity activity until it drops for you.

For those interested, here's the item's (wonderful) description:

"A small crystalline hexahedron, each facet encrusted with miniature sugared galaxies. It shimmers in and out of this reality. You believe a certain impossible horse might appreciate this."

Once you've got the Cosmic Sugar Cube safely in your inventory, head to Xur's Treasure Room and you'll be able to offer Starhorse the cube in return for a gift.
