Destiny 2 The Pigeon Provides: How To Get The Zephyr Sword
If you want to get your hands on the Zephyr sword, then you'll need to work through Destiny 2 The Pigeon Provides quest. This is yet another quest line introduced to Destiny 2 in recent weeks thanks to The Dawning, a limited-time Christmas event. As such, you'll only have a few weeks to earn this awesome sword, and with 10 steps to work through you'll want to get through it as quickly as possible. That's why we've worked up a guide that will walk you step-by-step through Destiny 2 The Pigeon Provides quest.

Destiny 2 The Pigeon Provides: Speak With Eva Levante
The first step in the Destiny 2 The Pigeon Provides quest is to speak with Eva Levante. Levante is the event vendor for The Dawning, and sends you out to spread Christmas cheer. Once you log in during The Dawning for the first time, talking to Levante should gift you with The Pigeon Provides quest on The Tower. Once you have picked that up, head to the hangar area of The Tower to speak with Saint-14, who will act as the second step to the quest.
Destiny 2 The Pigeon Provides: Find The Eliksni Recipe On Europa
Next up in the Destiny 2 The Pigeons Provide quest, head to Europa by dropping at the Eventide Ruins. You are looking for the Eliksni Recipe which can be found in a cave not far from the spawn. Head to the location shown in the map above, and you will see a small dip to the right, which allows you to walk down to the recipe which is sitting near the edge.
Destiny 2 The Pigeon Provides: Gather Vex Extracts
This next step to Destiny 2 The Pigeon Provides will require a bit more time and effort. You are tasked with collecting Pure Extract, Harpy Eggs, and Glacial Starwort. This will require you to run through at least three Lost Sectors on Europa, however doing so should help you come across all the materials you need. Start with the Perdition Lost Sector as it has plenty of Harpies for you to gather up Harpy Eggs, and apply a tracking mod on your Ghost to highlight nearby chests (which contain Glacial Starwort). The Pure Extract is rewarded in the loot chests after completing Lost Sectors.
Destiny 2 The Pigeon Provides: Earn Dawning Spirit
Hopefully if you've been familiarising yourself with the various activities of The Dawning 2021, you will already have the required 15 Dawning Spirit needed for this next step in Destiny 2 The Pigeon Provides. However, if that isn't the case, then taking on any of the Dawning bounties (either weekly or daily) will reward you with Dawning Spirit, as does delivering Dawning Gifts. Dawning Gifts require that you know the Destiny 2 Dawning ingredients 2021, and will reward you with three Dawning Spirit per gift.
Destiny 2 The Pigeon Provides: Collect Etheric Spiral
Similar to a previous step in Destiny 2 The Pigeon Provides you will be on the hunt for some specific materials. On this occasion it is the Etheric Spiral which can be found on the Tangled Shore. This can be found around in the environment but if you still have that tracker mod on then the easiest way to find Etheric Spiral is through chests. Lastly, you need to use the Dawning Spirit you've collected to purchase Kellsdough from Spider, and this will be marked on your map if you are tracking the quest. Sadly, you cannot just buy Etheric Spiral from Spider, so you will need to collect it while exploring. Once you have collected all of your Etheric Spiral, return to The Tower and speak with Saint-14 again and he will send you on your last step of the quest, as well as reward you with the Polycarbon Powder shader.
Destiny 2 The Pigeon Provides: Share Your Treats
As your final step to the Destiny 2 The Pigeon Provides quest, open the directory and go to the H.E.L.M which can be found above The Tower. Once there you'll select The Last City, Eliksni Quarter fast travel point. As you arrive, approach 10 NPCs and gift them with treats. Once that's done, head back to The Tower, speak with Saint-14, who will send you to speak with Eva Levante. Once you speak with Eva you will have completed the Destiny 2 The Pigeon Provides quest and collected the Zepyhr sword.
