    All members of a group who have the task get credit for the "beat down to 50%" step. But everyone has to hail 8 earthstrippers.
    Head Taskmaster Geddis - CON at least WARMLY

    Head Taskmaster Geddis Wouldn't Give me the task until I conned Warmly. Nothing less works. That's the same in the first set of Partisan Quests as well. Must get proper Faction.

    Faction is fairly easy, there are NPC's in each zone which will give you faction increases. The Double faction pot can make any faction job easier.

    I completed Mercenary and Partisan of Lcea (and nothing else related to Scorched Woods), but Head Taskmaster Geddis wouldn't speak to me, wouldn't blindly accept the quest trigger, and responded as follows, right before four Burynai jumped me:

    Head Taskmaster Geddis says 'I cannot trust you with this task.'

    Step 6 bug

    Step 6: f you gate or die after there names changed. You can't kill them due to their names going back to original and no amount of killing them will allow the quest to continue. So advise is do not die or leave zone after you have Hailed and their names changed to a behind schedule earthstripper. YOU MUST COMPLETE THE PROCESS of killing the 50% without dying or gating. OTHERWISE, you have to remove quest and start over. Only way I was able to continue. Pain the rump.

    I don't think there's a bug. If you happen to die or gate after changing an earthstripper to the "behind" version, and that mob despawns or reverts back, all you have to do is keep hailing earthstrippers until you get another to change.

    I had already talked to 8/8 earthstrippers, and only had 2/3 punished, but I was able to keep hailing them finally got another to change and dps it down to the "punished" version.

    DE does seem to be the favored race for faction. I found that using my guise of the deceiver was better than the Iskar skelly illusion, probably 150 faction points worth indiff -> amiable.

    When questioned (hail'd) and he is behind schedule, turns into "a behind schedule earthstripper" then when you beat him down to 50% (may be only 60% with processing lag), "a punished earthstripper"
