    Killing the cow king means WirtyWirt's Leg + Tome won't open you a red portal anymore for that difficulty.

    of course there is a way to get to the moo moo farm after you killed the king:)

    dont know the forums stance on cow mules though

    well you would still ber clean unless the mod dll we old people used to mule with long before atma existed has been branded dirty lately.

    the modified dll lets you open more then one instance of diablo 2 at once. So the affect is the same as using 2 computers and hosting a tcp/ip game with the char that should clear the moo moo farm and then join with another char that can open the portal and do so.

    this way you can revisit the moo moo farm and kill the king virtualy forever.

    The best cow runner is lightning zon. cow king is always LI, so you have very little risk (unless your merc/physical damage killed the king).

    i remember reading somewhere that if you "taint" the Cow King, (ie. touch or get touched by it), you can't open the portal even if you don't kill him. is that true? or is it just a matter of whether the King is dead or not?

    if you kill the cow king you cant open the portal with that char.

    if someone who has not previously killed the king kills him in a TCP/IP game and you are in his/her party you also lose the ability to open the portal.

    never lost the ability to open the portal because cow king hit me or i hit him (not enought to kill him) and i played +1000 cow games in 1.09

    this is a common misconception.

    Actually, if you are in the cow level and someone who hasn't killed the king kills the king you will be unable to open the portal. It doesn't matter whether you're partied or not. You can tell when this has happened because he spews milk bottles (stamina potions).

    I used to get so annoyed with bnetters who either: flamed me for killing the king when I was partied (I had already killed the king, so it didn't matter), wouldn't leave the cow lvl when I said I was going to kill the king ("i'm not partied, noob"), or unpartied when they killed the king every time.

    I think dii.net posted some incorrect information about this and that's part of the reason for the confusion

    no shermo most likely its because i remembered the part about party none party etc wrong. Was a while since i played in the moo moo farm after all;)

    good that you corrected it:thumbsup:

    I did a few cow runs with my javazon today, and found that those are not needed either, but it might be different in nightmare or hell difficulty.
