What can hell cows drop?????

What can Hell cows drop? I can kill them really, really easy and fast. I know they cant drop everything in the game. the main items i want to know are,

Shako Windforce Titens Stormshield Runes? like ber and ist?

and any useful soc stuff like 4soc monarch and 4 soc erth cryptic axe.

Thx guys this will help out a ton. I never wanted to run around and kill cows and find out they cant drop anything good. Thx.

Would probably have been easier to ask what they can't drop, but the link is better. Might take a gander myself since I'm almost done inventory.

Check here: http://www.diabloii.net/items/110tc.shtml
Any base items (with or without sockets, eth or not), any rune and any set/unique item with qlvl 84 or less.
For normal cows, it's unique qlvl 81 and under. For Champion Cows, it's unique qlvl 83 and under. For Unique and Minion cows, it's unique qlvl 84 and under. The cow king has his own TC. He can only drop up to TC66 and Vex.

What punk? You mean the cow king? I kill him everygame. I just have my cowmaker make and my sorc kill. That way i can remake over and over. I thought everyone made a cow maker?

I didn't make a character just for killing cows. [brag] However, my strafe/LF hybrid is very good at cows, both with her bow and with her javelins, but that's pure incidence because she's good in most other places as well :grin: [/brag]

Except Baal himself and Ãœbers, of course.

I kill the cow king on sight. I have a separate cow portal opener (in fact I have 1-2 dozens of L1 Patriarch mules and characters who aren't good at cows) in a second game running in parallel. He won't lose the ability to open the portal because (1) he doesn't enter the cow level and (2) even if he would, he would only lose it if the killer hasn't solved the quest himself so far.

Cows are very good at dropping runes and they can drop any runes up to Zod, but I cannot remember that they dropped any rune worth mentioning or just worth remembering for me in this season.

Combining these two statements, I am assuming that normal cows can drop any rune. Is that assumption correct or totally out to sea.

Correct, if by "normal" we mean Hell difficulty non-champ non-unique rather than normal difficulty.

Heres what I do. I make a char that ill never play in a cow game. Get him all the way through hell and kill baal. Then I get cains quest done in Nomal, NM, and Hell. Then whenever I want to play a cow game or lvl people in normal I make a game, make the portal, then exit and reenter with the char I want to use. I used my hammerdin for this cause my sorc is faster at killing cows.

Not really on-topic, but I noticed something odd on that page.. The http://www.diabloii.net/items/tc3.shtml page lists Armor 90 and Weapon 90 Treasure Classes, while the items supposedly found in them are listed in the Treasure Class 87 category on the http://www.diabloii.net/items/110tc.shtml page.. From the .txt files, it also seems as though no TC90 exists.. Is that the case?
Correct. The diabloii.net site is horribly outdated in many places. Some pages are only accurate to 1.08, some to 1.09, yet rarely will the version be listed.

How badly were the cows nerfed in 1.10? I've never experienced cow runs pre 1.10, and people say they suck now in 1.11

Are they still viable for good items and runes?

I played 1.09 "normal difficulty" cow runs to test out the pre1.10 drops but in about 10 runs at 100%MF (on normal), I got like 2 (normal) set items - from chests. The best I got from cows were rares. :(

lol I guess its cause its normal difficulty not nightmare or hell

1.09 cows were alot better than 1.10/1.11 you can get to level 99 in 1 day and the drops weren't bad either
