maybe a trigger

I would like to start off by saying their are such things as cycles in EQ, and verant has a twizted mind so killing this skeletal jester might just spawn undead jester quicker... It could trigger something... I at one point was trying to spawn the jester and I spent months... I had alot ideas but their was only one that spawned him and it wasnt perfect...

hmmm good idea but I doubt that mobs can affect the spawn rates of mobs in other zones...

I know just by killing one of the sythraz gaurdians that anything in this dungeon would be hard pressed to beat me, However, ... do not agro anything in the small throne room with the wandering skeletal jester of that Fat troll. I have been camping the UNDEAD jester for a very long time hoping to get an iksar berserker clob and i thought maybe if i killed the SKELETAL Jester that maybe there might be some kind of switch that would spawn UNDEAD Jester in curns tower. Tonight i went into this small temple and attacked the skeletal jester . 10 seconds later i was a smoking pile of scaled ashes lying on the ground. It went something like this,

you slash skeletal jester for 64 damage
you slash skeletal jester for 54 damage
you bash skeletal jester for 12 damage

Skeletal jester begins to cast a spell..
you writhe in the grip of agony 301 damage
aservant of Sythrax begins to cast a spell..
you writhe in the grip of agony for 235 damage

(at this point i am running)

A fat slob shadow knight ogre begins to cast a spell..... you writhe in the grip of agony for 330 damage
a servant of Sythax hits you for 20 damage
a fat slob hits you for 34 damage
a servant of sythax begins to cast a spell....

Everything in this place conned green to me.. dont let the colors of shadowknights fool you. be ready to mezz these bad skellys or charm them cause they are ALL ShadowKnights

you have been warned...

level 41 Iksar ShadowKnight

GOSH Don't you know anything THIS IS SKELETAL JESTER in FOB not Undead Jester in Kurns the one in Kurns drops the club the one in FOB drops nothing but change so understand concept and don't make a stupid plane like camping this Skeletal Jester for 8 hours cause it won't help!
Easy kill

I'm a 41 ranger and easily killed this little guy. He was next to the big troll sk. I just harmonized the group near the throne (including the troll) and pulled the little skeleton to the entrance of the room. He's not too tough, but removed nearly one bubble of my health before dieing. Nothing on him except 9 gold and some change.
I don't know if there's a connection between this guy and the kurn's tower one.

There is indeed a Skeletal jester in underground tunnels in FoB, the entrance is underwater on the opposite side of the coast as the marauder/bandit caves and quite a long swim so either get enduring breath of have good swimming skill. He is indeed smaller than the skeletal jester in kurns tower and a human skeleton instead of iksar. Saw him 5 minutes ago with my 45 but decided not to kill him as he was wielding nothing and in the throne room with a rather large SK oger and about 4 other Iksar skeletons with pets (Yikes!) There is a pillar sticking out from the water marking the spot where the entrance is, Quite sneeky of verant actully.. my friend AoE'd the skeletal jester from ontop of land and got Harm Touched and died instantly. (lvl 33 druid) Not a lot to mess with unless you've got a group with an enchanter cleric and few tanks. all green to me at 45 and all blue to a 33.. wouldnt be a problem for a small group of 40's I'm thinking. I cannot proove he drops the IBC however, but I may take other people's words for it and go camp him myself.. Just my 2cents..

YOU ARE IN THE FIELD OF BONE SECTION NOT THE KURN'S TOWER SECTION. The undead jester spawns in Kurn's Tower - the skeletal jester lives with Gharg Oberbord in Sythrax Caves in the FOB ZONE!! Again: this is NOT the Kurn's Tower section. Kurn's is a MUCH safer place than Sythrax - I promise! LOOKING FOR UNDEAD JESTER INFO?? G-O T-O T-H-E K-U-R-N-S T-O-W-E-R S-E-C-T-I-O-N! Hope it helps for me to S-P-E-L-L it out for you all.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jul 26 2001 at 10:14 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) i camped this guy every day for 3 weeks for atleast 5-8hrs a day(im a bad college student).

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE JUST MAKE UP THEIR MIND?! I WANNA KNOW IF THE LIL JESTER IS WORTH CAMPING FOR 8 HOURS!!! I got a lvl 41 Ench and a lvl 42 Druid to help my lvl 20 at the time and a lvl 22 friend camp the jester because someone told me it also dropped an IBC now I'm not really sure! can anyone tell me if the LIL JESTER not the IKSAR JESTER drops an IBC? both my lvl 40 friend ran off scared when the entire room aggroed! P.S. We got to kill it by having chanter charm it, then leading it to the entrance of catacombs. AND WHO IS SYTHRAK ANYWAY?!
iksar berserker club

if you people still think this jester drops the IBC... your retarded... in kurns tower the jester is called "an Undead Jester"......in case you havent noticed, this one in FoB is Gharg Oberbords still stand-up man jester ("Skelatal Jester")... NOTICE THE DIFFERENCE IN NAMES! I have seen him and he IS indeed 7 inches tall (hehe)
# Jun 07 2001 at 4:34 AM Rating: Decent
If you have never seen this Guy, you should go see him, The Big Troll will Luagh at him and he dances, and hes about 7 inches Tall LOL!!

umm... most the servant's around the jester are SK, although I got the snot beat outa me by one that seemed to be a monk. Later in life I started hunting these (no faction hits) and found them to be all Iksar playable classes. Watch out if ya attack in the crypt itself. I have seen 5 HT's go off before I got the infamous message... "Loading, Please Wait."

Is this the same Jester as in Kurns and Karnor's Castle??
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 29 2000 at 12:51 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Jester usualy spawns with a FS, but if your lucky he'll drop a rare, and very good club, Iksar Berserker Club, so ownage when u find him wif one :)

"You are the fool. This creature does indeed have the Iksar Berserker's club."

My pardon. I was quite mistaken, and should not have spoken, especially so strongly.
RE: What I Know...

I know the "undead jester" inside of KURNS TOWER is a rare spawn that has a rare drop of the Iksar Berserker Club. That jester is approximately level 20, and I've killed him myself.

I have never heard of the skeletal jester and it's very unlikely that I wouldn't have heard about something that actually drops the Iksar Berserker Club, a club known widely for dropping off of the undead jester in Kurn's Tower.

Can anyone provide accurate information?
RE: What I Know...
# Mar 16 2001 at 2:07 PM Rating: Default
I can provide perfect information since my 2 characters are iksars. There are 2 jesters. One that this one is talking about is indeed about lvl 29. He cons red to my lvl 20 warrior, the one and only time i got to see him. There is another Undead jester that cons blue to my lvl 20. He is inside of kurns tower and is a half way rare spawn but he drops a iksar beserker club (rare) that sells for about 10-15k .. Ive camped him myself and killed him once. but no club. My buddy camped him and got the club and sold it in the commons for 10k.
I am a fool...
# Mar 13 2001 at 9:17 AM Rating: Default
What a fool I am. there is indeed a Skeletal Jester, and though I have killed him many times, he has never has the club. I should not have spoken without specific information, but the post I was responding to irritated me.

The Harm Touches I suspect came from the surrounding Servants of Sythrax. They seem to be warriors, shamans, necros and SHADOWKNIGHTS. I've been spending a little time in there myself recently, soloing (which is tough considering just about everything in the place agro when you hit one of them). I've been harm touched many times.
