    Cows only????

    Fastest cow killer I've ever seen or used was a nova sorc. But that was in 1.09 not sure now. Not to many people run cows anymore.

    Lets face it, the fire sorc is having a come back from the 1.08 Fire Wall sorc. If you want to be a cow killer only in this day and age you carnt beat a maxed out fire sorc.

    I use a Act 5 merc beefed upto the eye balls to just survive (not kill anything - just live). He runs at the cows and they swamp him. Then I cast meeor's and fire balls en-mass. Thye go down like a cheap hoo.... well you get it.

    Although my sorc has a 36k meteor and 20k fire ball, Im sure a sorc with average equip could kill em quick.

    BTW stock up full revive pots for your merc, just in case.

    Good luck. :thumbsup:

    Cowkiller sorcs? AEHM, any build will do with a decent Merc!!!

    I use a Meteorb build at lvl90 and she does cowruns fast and without a problem. The key to her success is her Act2 Might Merc with Vampgaze/Duriels Shell upg./Reapers Toll

    The decrep and slow on Reapers is invaluable. Trying to do it without a Merc will prove alot harder though.

    So if you have either Defiance, Holy Freeze or Might Merc with decnet gear any sorc can do Hell Cowruns without a Problem!!!

    They still give nice EXP. Personally i only play them to get a bit of difference in my runs. If you have done everythign else over and over again you need a bit of change and the MooMooFarm aint hard at all with a Merc as company if you are doing that lvl alone.

    Me and a few buddies will split up a game. We all join with at least 400-550 MF on each of us. The pure cold (me-taru) will do like andy/meph/tunnels/maus while the fire sorc does pindle-shenk then we either tele to baal or we'll do the cows. We still get EXP and we are all lvl 82+
    Like mel said in the post above, it helps break up the boring non stop pindle or meph running.

    PS. I'm a blizzard sorc, no Orb at all, and I can destroy hell cows with my merc. Same set up as Melinor, but a holy freeze merc. Works on cold immunes as well.

    We'd love to have other people join in USEast ladder /msg *Gmankuza

    I'd say either fully synergized Orb sorc or fully synergized Meteor//Fire Ball (splash damage)

    Oeh, blizzard kills them crowds in seconds, even in 5player games. (4500 bliz dmg, so if you could get >6k you could easily solo 8players)
