Can't Enter Cow Level ><

Hey, my Wind Druid just beat Baal on Nightmare level. So I went back to the encampment, bought a tome of town portal and tried to transmute my Wirt's Leg... And nothing happened. >< I thought that maybe it wasn't working because I had accidentally stuck a chipped gem in it... So I used the Hel rune recipe to remove it and tried again. Nothing. (Kind of mad at myself for wasting a Hel rune ><) ATMA doesn't say anything about the Cow King being dead on Nightmare (whereas it does say that for Normal). I'm getting frustrated. Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong?

Well, check the obvious things first - you've definitely got quest credit for killing NM Baal? ie, the final quest is all shown completed?
Also, are you definitely in the NM rogue encampment?
Also, this is a pure Single Player game, you aren't playing by yourself in a MP game?

Something socketed in your Leg wouldn't stop it from working, the recipe just needs a Leg type item. Still might not hurt to drop that one, start a new game and go get the leg again.

If none of these are the problem then there is no rational explanation. Sorry :scratch:

You're sure you didn't accidentally click "Hell" instead of "Nightmare?" I know I've done that before.

Also make sure you're not using a Wirts Leg from Normal Difficulty.

IIRC you can't spawn a portal in normal with a leg from nm or hell, or one in nm with a leg from norm or hell, and can't spawn one in hell with one from norm or nm.

Yes, it shows that I got credit for killing Baal. Yes, I went back and made sure I was on Nightmare difficulty. This was a pure single player game.

About the leg, I opened the cow level with my normal difficulty one, so I'm sure it's not that. And I haven't picked up a Hell difficulty Wirt's leg yet.... I don't know, it's annoying me. :confused:

Thank you for your replies though.

So was the leg from normal difficulty? And you were trying to open a portan in nm difficulty? Maybe we have our answer.

that doesn't sound right. I'm pretty sure i opened a Cow lvl Tp in norm with a NM wirts leg. (and also, does d2 even notice what difficullty an item is droped in?)

I believe that they changed that in 1.10. Now you actually do need the same leg as the difficulty you're in.

You used a hel rune when you could of just gone and got another leg. :scratch:

and they changed it so you need the correct difficulty leg in 1.10

Nope, i just took a Nm wirts leg and opened a portal in norm.(like 3 seconds ago, so you can)

Really? Though I don't have ATMA handy I'm almost positive it can identify the difficulty in which a Wirt's Leg dropped - which is a ridiculous "feature" if it has no effect on the portal.

edit: Ridiculous feature on the part of the game-designers, not ATMA :D

I meant that I had already used my leg from normal to open the normal level cow level... And I thought that you could open the portal to tristram after you had already done the quest.

Checked ATMA and I couldn't see on there which difficulty level the leg is from. >< So you guys think I should try to go back to Nightmare Tristram and get a new leg (if I can)?

You can get an infinite number of wirts legs by exiting and re-entering the game.(the portal to tristram never closes)

Ok so now I feel incredibly stupid and noobish. >< I just went back to Tristram and got another leg and it worked. :clap:

I'm still angry at myself, but at least I've completed the cow level now. Thank you all so much.. :D
