I was Dubious as an Erudite necro to Larkon Theador, and I did the hand in. he took it, gave me money and faction, so I'd say it works from Dubious on up.

Turned in some Mino horns today. Was at apprehensive faction and couldn't get the quest, but could still turn them in for faction. Completed the quest 5 or 6 times, went from apprehensive to indifferent.

There is another "cheep" way to raise faction. Hit the mob with a snare spell when it's running away or one of the tanks with a simple heal spell. If you use the heal spell and get the main tank in the party, then you'll get faction hits from every mob he or she has "attracted" at the time you cast from just one spell. In places like Crush Bone this can be GREAT; running around building faction from other peoples work and being THANKED for it. AND nobody is going to get worried that you might try to kill steal.

It can be really, really tedious, but you can do it by doing the "C" Series Clockwork quest given by Manik Compolten in the warrior guild (GemChoppers). Of course you need decent Gem Choppers faction in order to get that quest, but you can get that by bringing Rusted BlackBoxes from Rogue Clockworks to Manik. Have fun.

If you faction is not high enough to be offered the quest from Larkon Theador can you still turn in the minatour horns for exp. or will he jsut take them?

He will just take them, at least that's what happend when I tried it with the tounges.
I've been trying to figure out how to raise my faction, I have not been able to get him to give me the quest for either the horns or the tounges. I've tried several times. I have about 2 backpacks full of tounges, have not hunted minetaours yet. Going tonight!
If anyone knows how to raise faction with this guy, please post it. I need help!

Amethist:

I am in need of raising faction with this guy as well. I have not had the opportunity to try this out but it should work. It is based on the research I ahve done:

Go to the Mino Caves, even if you are not high enough level to kill them. Find a group killing them and ask if you can 'love-tap' the Mino's. If you just cast your level 1 damage spell on them you will hit for damage and take positive faction for Gemchoppers and King Ak Anon. (minus for Meldrath but so what?)

Once you have built your gemchopper faction, go to Manik in the warrior guild and do the Black Box quest. When he asks, say you are a [new warrior]. This quest will give you positive faction boost for Eldritch Collective, which is what Larkon is on. I don't know how many times you can do the black box quest because I haven't tried this out yet, but I'm sure you can do it repeatedly.

Hope this helps (for your sake AND mine. :) )

just hand the items to him but do not accept the trade...have someone then invis you then turn them in. You should be able to use this trick.

you can turn in the horns regardless of faction (although if he is KoS obviously it is a wast of time to try) he has another quest that requires faction.... any time an npc says something like

"does not trust you well enough to speak of such things" then sugests something else then you can do that to raise faction.

In this case he doesn't trust you to do his quest that requires faction but will let you do the Horn quest to raise your faction so you can.

I have indifferent faction(which I understand is a fairly wide range) and got bored of holding too many horns so I turned 2 in. I got the xp, faction and money. Still wasn't amiable afterwards
though. He had refused to give me the quests but
did allow me to complete that one at least.

I wouldn't try this unless you have a bunch of horns and at least Indifferent faction.
