The chat’s temper modified mere moments later, although, when Kano left the dungeon, walked to an in-game vendor, and shortly bought the extremely uncommon merchandise. “Don’t vendor that!!! Please for the love of all that’s holy,” YouTube viewer Ragnar begged, to no avail. “YOU ASSHOLE,” Twitch consumer R__A__C__E added in all-caps outrage.

Kano simply chuckled a bit to himself on the reactions he was getting from his viewers. “What, dude, it is 35K, it is good… it is good cash,” he deadpanned. Later in the identical stream, he feigned ignorance over why the sale would even generate controversy. “Why would they be offended at me for promoting a Zod, dude? It is 35K gold. I do not get it. What’s the issue? I feel I ought to be extra offended at individuals who hold a Zod rune, to be trustworthy.”

Kano’s full stream. The Zod rune drops at across the 8:15:30 mark.

Elsewhere within the stream, although, Kano dropped the act and absolutely appreciated what had simply occurred. “I can not consider it, like, that is so sick,” he mentioned. “Whats up, it is my first ever Zod rune, dude. Now, at any time when folks ask me the query ‘What is the highest Rune you have ever seen in a speedrun?’ I can lastly say it is a Zod, man.”
