I think he was just responding to my advice to hunt them in the very early game, which isn't too hard if you're playing a mage, as cobras move somewhat erratically at normal speed. They've only got ~44 hp, so you should be able to magic missile them to death as early as level 4, and will gain a full level from it if you find one that early.

To a mage, King Cobras aren't especially more deadly than any other melee-only enemy, which is to say they're no problem if you don't get close, and almost certain death if you do.
