There are 14 jester spawns in the Black & White area (the only 14 in the zone). Two of them are in the water in the room and are easy to miss. They are each on a 24-minute respawn timer, and the masks have a 5% drop rate. Assuming my math is correct, this means you have a 51% chance of getting ONE mask (of either type) per clear, or a 30% chance of getting a specific mask per clear.

The mad jesters have about 85k in health and hit for 800+ (probably higher depending on mitigation).
The insane jesters have about 150k in health and hit for 950+
The Hidden Jester has about 174k in health, hits 1050+, and AE rampages.

The Hidden Jester drops two items from its loot table.

The masks that trigger this quest i've found drop at about 1 per room clearing, and respawn is kinda slow so don't expect to get em quick.

My guild <Anguish> of Sullon Zek was the first to take him down on the server. At first you have to clear the room of mobs, then turn in the quest items to the halfling. Room then spawns with 6 mobs, all roughly level 60 I think. As soon as you kill the last mob there another wave of 4 mobs spawns, levels 62-63. Then the last wave spawns, 2 mobs, both either level 64 or 65, cant quite remember. Upon killing them, the jester spawns, is level 70, doubles for around 1k. Mitigates slow, and has (im only guessing) but somwhere around 110k-150k hitpoints. The problem isn't about doing the damage to him, it's doing the damage to him before the raid is wiped. He does rampage and the melee's will go down extremely fast if not careful. Can be a very hard mob to take out.

We tried to get to this guy last night. After reaching the Thrones Room and killing 3 waves of progressivly bigger jesters, we wiped out on the 4th and final wave. The 4th wave is the ph for the Hidden Jester.
