Blascid said:Use only Lightning in the Cow level? The Cow King being LI-this is a perfect solution .
TheWormishOne said:He is? I thought that was random :bonk: Then this might be the perfect excuse to make that lightning sorc I've been wanting.
D2Addict said:Yeah you have to watch the mercs if you have them when you cow especially since 1.10 and up can only go to players 8. It is not as big a problem in 1.09 when we are doing p64 cow runs. You have a moment to get out of there. The best strategy is when you find the pen go the other way. If you clear everything else first you can usually lure out the king and still wipe out everything except him. Necro bone prison is a great way to seal off the king somewhere safe while you finish the level.
