    If you don't care about whether the king lives or dies, blizz is probably the best
    way to go. Cows have pretty high resists, so CM will be very useful.

    Lightning, with proper eq (infinity, lots of -elr), will probably do well as well. If you
    need to keep the king alive, you're probably better off without infinity though...

    The good thing about The Cow King is that his light immune aint broken by infinity.

    Lit sorc ftw, the king's immunity cannot be broken by infinity.

    Aha... that's very good indeed.

    Blizz would probably be a whole lot cheaper though.

    But dont let your merc come to close to the king, as he still can poke him to death if the King aint physical immune..

    Pure fire sorcs do it well too, but yeah, light sorcs are safer with the King.

    whats best cow killer ?

    IMHO, a lightning Javazon. Just herd them into relatively large groups and mow them down with a couple of Lightning Fury's. No merc required and you don't really have to worry about CK.

    I'm pretty sure it doesn't take much +skill for blizz to be effective, just have CM maxed out

    Go pure blizzard (maxed synergies) with 1 point in static field and you should be fine.

    If you just want to kill cows fast, the undisputed champ is the LF javazon... With good herding techniques, a few throws is all that's needed to leave piles of charred beef on the ground.. Cheap gear too. :smiley:

    I miss the old school Nova/ES sorc in 1.09... She was a real cow fryer.. :rolleyes:

    Blizz sorc is the budget cow killer, just watch the king/avoid the paddock area. Should require super cheap gear and not much +skill if you pump the synergies and don't neglect cold mastery.

    High end a pure damage lighting sorc w' infiinity rules for sorcs vs cows.

    Overall a fully synergized LF/CS zon will be best but you asked about sorcs so that is a whole other topic.

    Just be smart with your teleporting, casting, and avoiding the king's area. Save the hammerdin for baal runs or chaos runs. Also, keep a stack of keys for chests and some open slots for all the jewels and charms that drop. Yeah most will suck but the ones that don't more than make up for the ones that do.

    Hope this helps....
