There may be character, level, gear, and quest requirements.

    Patch Notes from July 21, 2021 state the following:

    Removed the requirement to complete the quest “Apocalyptic Prophecy” from Fughar to exchange PEN (V) Naru gear to PRI (I) Tuvala.
    – Made it easier to start exchanging PEN (V) Naru gear to PRI (I) Tuvala gear for season characters.

    Looks like they removed the requirement for the main Mediah quest line.

    But it looks like players are still having trouble with the exchange. This is why I left up the previous requirements below. Just in case!


    Old Beginner Player Requirements:

    • Complete the main Mediah quest line (removed according to patch notes)
    • “[Pet] Bareeds’ Junaid” from Bareeds III (This can only be obtained after completing the main Mediah questline. So this is probably removed as well?)


    Required Quest Completion: (removed according to patch notes)

    – Apocalyptic Prophecy

    Apocalyptic Prophecy is at the end of the Mediah main quest line.

    Old Veteran’s Requirements:

    • Level 56+ with your Season Character
    • Already completed the main Mediah quest line on a different character, up to “[Pet] Bareeds’ Junaid” from Bareeds III (patch notes state this requirement was removed)
    • Complete [Special Growth] Fughar’s Memorandum – Chapter 8

    Those who have already completed the main quest line on an alternate character can complete a simplified main questline in which the objectives are to gain levels.

    For details view our Simplified Main Quest guide.
