How to Get the Tenakth Vanquisher

Location Cost
The Maw of the Arena 54 Arena Medals

The Tenakth Vanquisher outfit can be purchased from Dukkah, at The Maw of the Arena. In order to gain access to this NPC, you will need to have finished The Kulrut story mission. Once you have done this, you can find a pair of NPCs at The Maw of the Arena that give you an errand to reopen the Arena itself. You only need to speak with the NPCs, named Kalla and Dukkah, to gain access to Dukkah’s wares, so you don’t need to actually complete the errand to reopen the Arena. She will be marked on the map with a medal icon and is close to where you first encountered her. Speak to her, then select the option to Trade Medals to see the list of weapons and armor she has, one of which will be the Tenakth Vanquisher outfit.
