Chocolate Ship Cookies Recipe: Ether Cane + Personal Touch + Essence of Dawning.

This final gift is for Hawthorne’s bird Louis. Since Louis is a bird it is only right that you bring him birdseed. To make Eliksnki Birdseed collect the following ingredients:

  • Ether Cane: from farming Forsaken enemies.
  • Personal Touch: from defeating enemies while up closed
  • 15x Essence of Dawning: earned by completing most activities.

Once you have the above listed ingredients make the Eliksni Birdseed and deliver it to Hawthorne on the Tower.

Make 12 Gifts

The final objective is to bake 12 Gifts. This should occur naturally as you play-through the Dawning since there is emphasis on baking gifts for other NPCs. If you’ve followed this guide so far you will have 3/12 already. Check out the recipe list to see what other gifts can be made.

Return to Eva to Claim Dawning Cheer Exotic Vehicle
