treasure goblins in act 2 are probably the best rare/time farming, but you can't get a "good" (1k+ dps) 1h in act 2 as far as I know, so if you want to FIND a new weapon, you're pretty much relegated to act 4, or getting super lucky in act 3.

As for act 3, siegebreaker runs seem to be the easiest/best

Can you elaborate on this? Is there any guaranteed way to find goblins, or are you just running around hoping to bump into them?

best place to farm in the game atm is definetly whimsyshire, highest mob lvl in the game (so im told:p) and therefore the chances of higher drops, i found 2 1000+dps 1h'ers yesterday there.

what i do is start the quest "the broken blade" then farm cemetery of the forsaken/fields of misery for 5 buffs. and then enter. on that quest you have Leah with you, so she will keep the elite packs in combat if you have some trouble on certain packs, and you need to wait on respawn timer:p

If you want to farm high-end gear, don't bother with anything but Act 3/4 or Whimsyshire as only those places can drop everything. Drops are the same there, though, no matter what you kill. It's a matter of efficiency and personal preference. Popular choices include, but are not limited to, Siegebreaker, Cydea/Azmodan, Silver Spire, Whimsyshire and Diablo. Choose whatever you can clear the fastest! Note though that if you farm bosses, it is inadvisable to kill them without NVx5, as that will guarantee 2+ yellows. Whimsyshire has a high number (if not the highest number) of magic item drops, but since the NV hidden rare-bonus only affects bosses, you will likely end up with less yellows than elsewhere.

first staff is 150 k, nightmare 200 k, hell 500 k, inferno 1 mil, so around 1.85 mil all in all. but its quickly made in again, a worthwhile investment imho:p

Keep in mind that anything below Act 3 can't drop the highest tier equipment. You can farm gold there and medium-value items but if you want expensive stuff, you'll have to go Act 3/4 or Whimsyshire.

High-end equipment is very expensive. 1 Million won't get you very far, nor will 200k/hour :(

Stormshield is an i62 item, not 63. It can drop in Act 2 for sure.

I generally run Siegebreaker. Act 3 can drop anything Whimsyshire or Act 4 can drop, just at a slightly lower rate, and it's easy for me to get five stacks of NV and off Siegebreaker in a pretty quick and regular manner. I'm not pulling 1k dps blues regularly, but I am getting nice rare 850 dps 1h's with life on hit and sockets and stats, or solid rare bows, which sell for a few million apiece.

Do you have any source as to the "lower rate" thing? The table published by Blizzard a few days ago definitely lists Act 3/4 at completely equal drop rates (Whimsyshire also).

That being said, I can definitely second Siegebreaker runs. As a Wizard, you will find few spots that are better for kiting and you can easily kill pretty much any affix combination there. Well geared and experienced, it takes about 20 minutes and 0-3 deaths to complete which all things considered is, I think, pretty good for a high-end farming run.
