    Cow Java (Hunting Pgems)

    Hello !

    Since Perfect gems is quite easy to get and valuable to many i'm thought to start a fast killing char to kill cows since i guess cow is the enemie with highest drop rate of perfect gems.

    And i thought that a Javazon should do the work.

    Can you give me some good tip of what items to use for killing cows in nightmare/hell (depends on which have the highest drop rate).

    perfect gems dont drop, flawless ones do. if all you're after is gems, i'd suggest running nm cows they're easier to kill. dont use a merc or valk they scre with "herding". just run around in a big arc gathering up some cows, then when they're in a big clump, throw a few lightning furies. cs whatever's left over and pick up what you want. have some mana per kill and you wont miss having a merc with insight at all.

    gear:
    titans
    everything else can be crap. avoid MF.

    I thought that Hell cows would be better beacuse they can drop something that's good for my other char's. So the priority is gems but i dont get to sad if i can found good items on the way :)

    So, any sugestions for items to use for Hell cows :) ?

    I gotta say, nightmare cows is real nice. I've been running them for LLD stuffs, but it seems they are very fond of dropping skill charms. Almost every other run I find one.

    For hell cows:
    Titan's
    Spirit
    PCrown w/ a Tir (or Jewel with +to mana after kill) or a +skills fast r/w circlet (socketed)
    Skin of the Vipermagi or Spirit Shroud (socket with whatever you need)
    +Jav gloves
    Razortail
    Silkweave or Sander's Riprap
    +skills ammy
    SoJs or whatever you want

    Edit: a point in decoy can help with those pesky LI bosses you may want to park

    for Hell cows, just follow the standard pure lightning zon guides already in the Zon forums. That gear is a lot more expensive, although yes, there's a small chance you'll get something useful you cant get in NM cows.

    The problem is that almost everything that you can only get in Hell cows is unique or set items, which mean you need to stack MF, which reduces your kill speed - so gem/socket/jewel/rune/etc hunting is somewhat at odds with MFing. Really, the only thing of value you're likely to find only in Hell cows are Elite socketables.

    Jewels, gems, crafting runes, charms, etc. all will drop in NM cows, which is probably 80% of the tradable items you'll find in either, and NM cows die a lot faster. You basically sacrifice a LOT of killspeed (and, thus, jewel/gem/rune/charm collection rate) for the off chance of finding a high-end tradable unique or socketed item in Hell.

    For a NM cower, go pure light skills with Titans, and then stack your gear for 1) FRW, 2) MAEK, 3) +skills. Harmony bow on switch for Vigor. A 2/4 Valk Wing will basically make the build for you :)

    1pt Decoy
    1pt Pierce

    Gear:
    Valkyrie Wing
    Titans
    Razortail

    Enigma (if you cant afford it, Peace or Stealth is good)

    And if you can afford: Anni, Torch, Java skillers with FRW.
