If you, like me, completed Devan's quest without realizing it would trash your Tuffein faction and did not complete Costica's quests there is another way to get them without grinding faction back up.

I can confirm that Puppet Strings will work to charm Costica, and while you have him charmed you can receive his quests and turn them in. That being said you'll have to be creative about not getting aggro from his friends before clicking the strings(or using a normal charm if capable). Not to mention getting the Puppet Strings may prove difficult depending on your server.

I haven't tested this but I wouldn't be too surprised if you could drag an Enchanter or Bard along that can charm him (he's level 43 when I /con him, not 50 as above) then hail him to receive the quests. Or, hopefully you get his quests out of the way before Devan's and can avoid this whole mess in the first place...

Costica regards you indifferently -- You would probably win this fight..it's not certain though.

You say, 'Hail, Costica'

Costica says 'Why hello. It is great to meet you. We have [heard about] you.'

You say, 'heard about'

Costica says 'Yes. You have composed yourself with great valor, and unlike those silly [Minohten] we appreciate someone with your skills. Perhaps you will be willing to do a few [tasks] for us?'

You say, 'tasks'

Costica says 'Those Minohten take themselves too seriously, so we like to tweak their tails from time to time. Why don't you help us [show them] humor again.'

You say, 'show them'

Costica says 'I have these three things you can do to tweak their tails.'

At this point, Costica offers 3 different quests:

You have been assigned the task 'Minohten Mushrooms'.

Task steps for Minohten Mushrooms:
Find the Minohten camp - 0/1 - Goru`kar Mesa
Steal some of the mushrooms the Minohtens sue for

By the tents there are bags. The ones with the yellow tops can be clicked. It is only a few of them and they respawn. Hope this helps.

Minohten camp is north west of Tuffen camp across teh river a bit; if you have maps it should be marked

Upon getting to the camp Minohten Mushroom and No Place Like Home update . . .
Minohten Mushroom
step 2 - Steal some of the mushrooms then Minohten use for food
After goofing around this camp a bit I have no clue what mushrooms its talking about so . . . there is one other step after that

No Place Like Home
Step 2 - Destroy 2 tents
Easy as pie - target one of the 6 or 7 tents and bam (with Reproach lvl 68 cleric dmg spell went on first hit but had nothing else memed so dont know the actual hp of tents)
Step 3 Speak with Costica

Reduce the Scouts
after killing the 4 scouts who are probably druids with druid-like spells updates step 2 speak with Costica

get xp as a reward dont know how much as im not low enough for quest to help . . . Good luck any who try it
