    How rare are Cow King's Hooves?

    Hi guys,

    I've been looking for this items for some weeks now (making Bnet games, posting threads/bumping here), but I can't seem to get my hands on one.

    How rare are these?

    Regards Hookipa.

    If you want to check out probability percentages, you might want to consider heading over to the Single Player Forum and downloading Atma. It has a built in drop calculator that should be able to give you some specifics. Good luck!

    I know the feeling. I literally just got my pair on ladder the other day. It was luck really, running into someone who happened to have them.

    I dont pay attention to that because I dont do cow level anyways. I mean cow king set has no use compared to regular mf gear like war travelers, shako, and enigma.

    Yup, extremely nice for level 18, melee and otherwise. 20 dex, run/walk, fire damage, not going to find much better

    Re: How rare are Cow King's Hooves?

    Indeed for a level 18, the +20 dex is godly and the frw 30% a sort of must, this combination alone makes this item for me valuable. The +fire resis is even a extra.

    @ Reddude: I guess you are not looking to sell this item in that case, but if you are Europe, interested in trading? I am also curious what you paid for it (because I have no clue to its actual value)?

    Regards Hookipa.

    Hookipa do you need them for ladder or non-ladder?

    If NL I believe I have a spare pair on one of my toons. Let me know your NL account and I will check tonight and msg you.

    My NL account is SHAKA_ZU

    I'm on East Ladder, sorry :( And about the value, that is what made the trade hard. I had no idea what to offer. I ended up paying around 2.5 ists for them, and I have no idea if that was a low ball or overpay.

    They are not that hard to get in fact. Cow King in normal difficulty has the highest chance of dropping them. Just have some mule char open the cow level and kill the king with your mf guy/gurl over and over again. Last season I got 3 pairs of ckb in 50 runs or so. Might have been a stroke of luck ofc, but its definitely doable.

    Re: How rare are Cow King's Hooves?

    The king drops them quite often (1 in 200 or so in 1 player normal, with 0%MF). Normal cows is a good place for LLD items, so if you need the boots for that purpose, it's worth to check other drops there as well. Diminishing returns from MF aren't as severe for rares and set items as for uniques and normal cows can be killed easily, so it makes sese to load up a bit more MF.

    Re: How rare are Cow King's Hooves?

    Thank for advise guys.
    I have already done a tons of cow games, but those were on nightmare. I'll try my luck on normal games now.

    2,5 ist seems btw quite a bit for them, but as you can't price 'm either, we are both in dark regarding the price. Out of frustration I made some games on Bnet offering ist for them, but no offers :-(.

    Alright, normal cow games here I come :crazyeyes:

    Thanks again all!

    Holy Cow!

    Or King Cow's Hooves to be more precise. With the wisdom of Deckard Cain and some fellow-etfr's I created a dozen of cow games after which a nice green pair of "Heavy Boots" dropped from the Cow King.

    I cannot believe this worked out so well.

    Thanks all!

    Congrats on tracking them down :) And about 2.5 ists being to much.. I find on battle.net if you make an offer someone doesn't like, half the time they save and exist without even saying no thanks. I needed to prevent that from happening :D

    if you wanted them bad enough to pay 2,5 ist for them you didnt overpay anything... you wanted the item it doesnt matter what the actually price is they are worth 2,5 ist for you :)
