    Someone else opened the cow level. We cleared the level except for the king. The other person left the game. I kill the king (with a char that did do it before). Now this char can't open the portal anymore ("I can't use that yet").

    I thought that if it wasn't me who opened, I can freely kill him. Was that not right?

    It makes no difference who opens the portal, only who kills him.

    I usually open cow with another char when I do public cowruns on nrml. Then I can come back and clear the whole cowlvl with my Javazon.
    Who, ofc, cant open cow level on nrml. Because she killed the king, while my other char (who opened it) can.

    Simply, the party who kills king, cant open the cow level again.

    I hardly even touch the Secret Cow Level, because I've had the king suddenly turn up almost right away and it seems too easy to accidentally kill him, especially with certain characters. Having tag team where one character opens the portal and leaves, then another kills everything sounds like it's probably the best bet.

    If the cow king is dead, does that mean you cannot open the cow level again no matter what difficulty? My fishymancer's skellies swept through normal and killed everything before I could stop them, and now I can't open the level in NM or hell. Lesson learned, I guess. Skellies are uncontrollable!

    Three possibilities:
    a - you (or someone else on the map with you) killed him on other diff levels, too
    b - you haven't completed that difficulty level
    c - you are using Wirt's Leg from other difficulty level

    My money is on c.

    Hmm. I've just been stashing Wirt's legs in GoMule and I grabbed one. I didn't realize they were different. I only have a few so I'll try with some other ones.

    Thanks!

    You can always just go back to Wirt's body in Tristram. It respawns. No need to stash the legs.

    Excellent! I did not know that. The little brat was such a smarta** in D1, and now he apparently has limitless legs. When I was growing up, we referred to a state of inebriation as "legless". I guess now we know why Wirt ran his mouth so much.

    :)

    "Legless with liquor" - one of many memorable Deadwood quotes.
