Just Killed the JEster 2 times today and both times he had a skull that looked like this picture and was a 4 slot item is this the same or different?
Drops from Jester now

The skull and the tattered note both drop from the Undead Jester now. I was camping Kurn's lower lever for a few hours and never saw the Cook, but the Jester spawned about 8 times. I had him pop back to back about 3 times in a row.

A new named (Crackling Bones) spawns where the cook used to. It dropped the right preserved eye (not the dusty canoptic).

Update on tattered note
# Aug 31 2003 at 12:05 PM Rating: Decent
Haven't got a screen pic yet of it, but when I can get one I will.

Been camping basement today to get fingers for monk quest. Thought I'd try getting eyes+tongue etc.. killed the jester and read the note

Note now says sweet CRUNCHY flesh, no longer sweet honey flesh as previously reported.

Hope this helps, will keep searching for more items.

the final piece?
# Nov 26 2002 at 2:28 AM Rating: Decent
Ok I think i have a very good hunch on this quest. And the reason it hasnt been solved. First lets examine the clues. You get the skull with four slots from the cook. The scroll from the jester tells you exactly what it is missing if you read it. No eyes, no tongue, to taste the sweet honey flesh. The eyes and tongue both drop off of the forager. But that leaves one empty slot. And the forager doesnt drop the fourth neither do any of the other spawns here. Lets think now. Why does the forager and only the forager have these items? Maybe the clue we have been lookin for is he foraged them? Not sayin a character can forage them but maybe the fourth item which very well could be Sweet Honey Flesh is foraged in kurns by a master forager. Or maybe you need to let the forager forage around for a bit to get it. Since mostly iksars are in kurns and their foraging skill isnt very high. This could be why it hasnt been found. Unfortunately my highest lvl character is a 28 iksar Sk I may well never know. But ithink I am on the right track here. Any else think so?

Has anyone tried the various enchanter liquid mana type tradeskill items? It does say something about magic "flowing" in the jester's note.

The quest for the splitpaw hollow skull says its a container with 2 slots. The hollow skull that drops of the skeleton cook in kurns has 4 slots, so I really dont think its the same item.
Splitpaw Assasian in West Karanas

I looted this off a Splitpaw assisian in North karana, never seen him befor and he was on my bards track so i hunted him down. Extremely hard to get off a first hit to agro him as he does something like the shadowknights shadow step and ports all around the area every 5 seconds. After getting sick of trying to chase him on track with selos, i stayed in one spot and waited a few minutes with one of my dd distant songs going and him targeted, sure enough after about 5 minutes he jumped into line of fire and attacked me and i took him out quicky, him being very green to me at lvl 41. He dropped a Hollow Skull, which has the same image as the above discription, other than a few things, which are way different, i have it up on my other PC right now as to make sure i state it correctly. It IS a lore item, but it IS NOT a nodrop item. the one i have is also a capacity of 2 size tiny items. I'll do a screen capture and try to get it sent in this week. If anyone has any info on this MOB or this item and what quest it is actually for please reply to this post. Thank you.

If you go to the WK bestiary info page and click on Yiz Pon or someone like that you will find the info on this hollow skull, and the quest that it involves.

i think the 4th item is Glowing Skull that is a rare drop off lesser charbone or greater scalebone

i think this because it is tiny and can fit in the hollow skull

Possible Solution
# Nov 26 2001 at 7:07 AM Rating: Decent
Its unfortinate that no one can figure this quest out. Ive had a few ideas on the so called 4th item. This is and was originally meant for iksars right? And well iksars can forage right? Welll, and since all the items that go into the skull are no drop, wouldnt it follow suit that the 4th item would be to? Well if you goto FoB and start foraging, eventually you will forage a no drop leaf (cant remeber name right now). Im not sure that this leaf has been tried, and right now with my connection being redone I cant verify this. If anyone has tried this let us know.

Get the Dusty Canopic Sealed Jars(2)AND Dried Tongue from Burynai Forager in Kurns Stable area. Then get Hollow Skull AND Glowing Mask from Skeleton Cook. Take the jars to The Overthere and give them to Vox Nir (Careful KOS 4 Lizards in there) and he will open them and give you the Left and Right Eyes of Torture.(Have the jars identified before going to make sure you have both
eyes!)Put the Eyes,Tongue, and Glowing Mask into the Hollow Skull and hit Combine. Result is Glowing Bone Helm AC 18 +7INT +7WIS +10VSMAGIC. I haven't done it yet but heard from other players and posts. Hope it works!

if you get the eyes of torture from the canopic, maybe one of the items it the glowing skull also from kurns. it does ID as the skull of torture. just a thought

How SURE are you that a glowing mask is dropped by the cook? Many people need to know..... this is very vital.

I dont know about a Glowing Mask. However i did get a Glowing Skull, the griffic on the link is of a mask(same as Sheer bone mask). Same thing or no?
RE: Hollw Skull
# Nov 25 2001 at 10:54 PM Rating: Excellent
I have since heard that the mask is NOT the item needed for this!
Skull ale?

This is an recipie that has not been solved. Perhaps this is the skull needed to make the ale.

Kurn's Tower Cook

The Kurn's Tower Cook also dropped a Hollow Skull with 4 slots and a combine button. Anyone have any Idea about this quest item? It only accepts tiny sizes.
