You can get Lustrous Tailplate as a common drop from the tail of the Rezakiri Behemoth in Dauntless. Check out list of all Behemoths in Dauntless and you’ll see the Rezakiri is a Radiant Behemoth. This means to counter its elemental type you need to craft Umbral weapons. Rezakiri is a Threat Level 17 Behemoth, making it one of the toughest fights in the game. You need to be well equipped to take it on, and won’t even unlock the pursuit until you complete most quests for the NPCs in Ramsgate.

To get Lustrous Tailplate from the Rezakiri, you need to break its tail during the fight. This is the part dangling down most of the time, so should be easy to target. Blunt damage from the Hammer cannot break tails, so make sure you’re using a slashing weapon type with high part damage like the Sword or Chain Blades. If you have a full squad then the Hammer can be helpful for interrupting the Rezakiri, but you want the majority of your team attacking the tail specifically to make sure you break it. Lustrous Tailplate is a common drop, so you should earn it any time you break the tail. If you don't or you earn something rarer instead, you'll need to repeat the fight and break the tail again.
