    What's wrong with cows???

    I can barely find a normal cow game these days. The levels 20-25 have become the slowest ones yet. Is anyone else having such a problem?

    What i did was create a pub game, made the portal and waited for a couple of minutes. Soon 8 game cowing, 3 lvls in 5 mins :grin:

    Also helped than a lvl 87 sorc turned up and froze everything for us to kil.

    I remember the good old days of cowing (1.09), where Nova sorcs and Windforce amazons were the uncontested masters of XP'ing :grin: !

    That's the only time I've reached lvl 99, with a 100% legit Firewall/Nova sorc :thumbsup: !

    thats the funny part about cows (and them being called moomoo farm lol) is how bad they go mooo!

    as for burger king? same lol. Only takes me a couple of cow games before my mind starts daydreaming about cheeseburgers and big macs.

    Oh man, I miss my Nova Sorc... Those cows were so ezpk with her around.

    I still like doing cow runs though, but normal runs (cows and Baal) are starting to disappear. Because like Evrae said, everyone is starting to get bugged rushed and are just doing Chaos runs.

    Aw man the good old times...

    I had a bowzon as you said, with windforce(best bow ever back then, since you could ditch the kb gloves for something better) and a ias/ed helm and armor: pure roasted beef. Add act2 merc and you were a party favorite.

    Yes me too reached 99 in 1.09 with that char. Good memories...:cry:

    ever since blizzard gave them +50% res to everything (including physical i think) in 1.10+ they are no longer worth running compared to pits and baal runs

    Monsters in Hell had 50% physical res in 1.09. Cows in 1.10+ aren't worth runing because Blizz nerfed drops.

    Argh, if there's an extinct type of run I'd like to bring back, it would be the bloody foothills run. No stupid portal opening issues. No stupid leg getting issues. No stupid swarmed portal issues. No stupid IM issues. No stupid no one can tele issues. No stupid "I'm killing baal" and then half the game leaves issues. No "this game will close in 60 seconds" issues (how many of you get that one? I may be off on the time..)

    I have a feeling Hell Chaos and Baal Runs might be disappearing in the near future due to Uber Trist Runz :cry:

    I don't know. Uber Trist runs take effort and cost (ie. gathering Keys/Organs or buying them). Also, due to the Torch dropping, people will probably only organize private runs, not public ones. Chaos/Baal may be a bit slower, but it's free (except for the time invested....).

    yes but now they also have +50% to cold/fire/light/etc. which means that javazons and light sorcs can't do them very quickly either in full games

    1. I remember that cow drops were changed since 1.09, but in what way?

    2. What's this bug rush? I've spent almost the last several months that I have played item finding with level 80 characters, so this is the first I've heard of it.

    It's a way of getting a very low level char into Hell. The low level stands in Harrogath while someone that needs the Baal quest kills Baal. When Baal dies, the low level will also receive credit, allowing him to go to the next difficulty without having to do the Ancients quest.
