Decided to post this since it isnt in alla's yet.
Very easy to get, the quest is "The Needy" and it requires you to collect/kill in Arcstone. The missions starts in Relic with Borso, and I duoed the quest in about 2 hours for both toons...of note ALL these mobs summon.
1. 10 riverbed mistwalkers (although ANY of the Mistwalker mobs count towards totals) and turn in 4 water vials .Mobs proc a stun with minor dd, and spawn a "reflection" that hits for ~350. mob max hit was around 800.
2. 10 tanglefoots (any of the root mobs will work, lesser etc) and collect 4 seed pods. Mobs proc a nasty ae root with dd, fully slowable. max hit was around 800.
3. 10 Firetails (any of them) and collect 4 hearts, firetails also spawn a mini which hits for ~350.
**of note, while clearing these be on the lookout for Shekar (drop BP mark) and Embra (drops Leg mark). These named arent any harder than the normal mobs from my experience, just a few more hp.

Turn in your items for melee ring ( or caster earring (

Cool! I will have to check this out, as I really need a new earring. I found it odd that the melee ring is listed as a wind instrument - heh.

besides the tangleroots, nothing seemed to summon to me. Maybe some summon, but not all.

The plain 'tangleroots' will summon. Greater and lesser don't appear to, from what I saw today.

The quest mentioned above is correctly named. Crossfire is aug quest.

Crossfire results in an 55 hp/mana/end aug...this quest is just as easy, and much easier (depending on gear of course) than "A Shopkeeper's Delight"...This is the other quest borso gives out.

Borso quests a ring/earring for both melee and casters
