How to start and complete the quest for Destiny 2 Nascent Dawn

To get started with Nascent Dawn, you must first complete Varmind DLC’s final story mission, A Peace of the Past, for which you must recommend 340 Power. Our Warmind walkthroughs explain the specific steps required to get here.

Once done, return to Ana Bray in Mars Patrol Space, and you’ll find two quest items. One is Violent Intel, which is used to help unlock the sleeper simulant, and the other is Nascent Dawn.

Found in the ‘Part’ section of your list, highlighting the icon of the Nascent Dawn reveals your current stage. It comes in 5 main parts – starting from 1/5 – each part has several stages.

The steps of each part require you to complete various activities associated with the Varmind DLC, with each one giving you a reward, as well as a learning entry.

Each part is unlocked at a speed of one per week. So if you have completed one part, you will have to wait until the next weekly reset until you can continue.

Along with the entire prize, it is also suspected that the prize is a new foreign weapon at the very end – possibly the Polaris Lance.

That is, every Nascent Dawn step you need to complete to unlock the Polaris Lance and its originator. It will take you some time, but you have to keep some distance while completing milestones on every weekly reset, and the reward of a unique alien will make it well worth your time. Good luck!
