How to get Dawn in Diablo 3

As you can expect, clasping Dawn in your hands isn’t as easy as watching the sunrise. Instead, it involves a lot of grinding and sheer luck.

Importantly, in order for the item to drop your character must be above level 50. It also drops completely randomly from monsters or objects, gambling with Kadala once you hit 60, or as a random upgrade for another crossbow.

In order to maximise your chances of getting it:

  • Gotta slay ’em all – Make sure you’re thorough when clearing dungeons, destroying all items and monsters along the way, and checking every corner.
  • Play Demon Hunter – The odds of this item dropping for another class are little higher than zero, so make sure you’re playing as a Demon Hunter.
  • Play with friends – If your friends are incredibly high level, you’ll get better loot drops playing with them. While it may not always be Dawn, you might find another weapon that’s just as special!
