How to Give Riven the Thousand-Layer Cookie
This one is understandably a bit tricky. To give Riven her baked good you need to head into the Last Wish raid, and input Wish Seven in the Wishing Wall. That will take you to the Riven boss fight, and from here you’ll need to drop down into her chamber. Near where you land should be a snow globe (see below image), walk over to it. Here you can offer and give the Thousand-Layer Cookie to Riven.
How to Give Saint-14 The Lavender Ribbon Cookies
At the time of writing we don’t have a way to give Saint-14 these cookies. As soon as we do we will update the guide here and let you know about it! What we can say is that we’re sure it’s only a matter of time and advancing the Season of Dawn storyline.
How to Give The Visage of Calus The Fried Sha-dough
Head to the Tribute Hall on Nessus. The Visage of Calus is the big old golden statue of Calus, give him the baked goods and get out of there.
How to Earn The Cold Front Submachine Gun
The very first part of The Dawning 2019 tasks you with baking something for Zavala. Eva gives you all the ingredients in the Tower, and he’s right there next to her. The gift Zavala gives you is your first Cold Front, and you can earn more by participating in The Dawning this year.
That’s it for our guide! Unless we’ve pointed it out, let us know if we missed anything this year, and Merry Christmas Guardians!
