Why was I just attacked by a cow?

    I was running by the ranger huts outside of Skara Brae... and a cow attacked me! Now, this wasn't a problem, really, but um... a cow?

    Eaten a steak recently? Tipped any cows? What are those boots made of?...

    *laughs* It is a rare occurrence, but yes, it just happens sometimes.

    LOL. I had that happen to me a couple months ago. I was confused. It was a fun little easter egg though. I think it may have even been in Haven.
     
  6. I've had it happen lots. Some were without benefit of blackrock, some were. Kill 'em and skin 'em ... if BR-infected there's a bit of gold for you. Dunno on the hide increase, but it might be possible. I just don't remember.

    If only that kinda thing happened more, its heck of a funny to find yourself followed by some rampaging kill hungry domesticated spawns.

    Haha. This happened to me just yesterday. I was running into my tram house to log out, and was like 'was that a cow that just tried to attack me?!"

    I logged back onto my crafter, and sure enough, bessy the bovine berzerker was at my doorstep, mooing in anger at me.

    I was like, 'oh no, peta is sending assassins for all that leather farming i did'

    LOL!

    It happened to me day before yesterday too, and I kinda wondered what the hell I did THIS time that I didn't realise =P

    My first thought had been mad cow disease though ;)

    Hmm. It was my crafter that was attacked...

    I wonder if they know when you've been killing all those cows?

    That hasn't happend to me in A long time.The first time I ever had it happen to me was when I had a brand new character that had only 52 mage(I think i was fireballing cows until I learned I could target my spellbook instead) ner the delucia bulls/cows and I had to go afk for a coffee break and when I got back my screen was mono-chrome,and only cows/bulls were near me and nothing else.Imagine the embarassment of getting pwnd by a cow.I figured at least My auto defend would kill it before it killed me.
