Diablo® III

How will you be farming in 1.05?

Will act 1 on MP1 have as good drops of gold and items as act 3 on normal mode or even better?

I have a question, will A1 be easy as it is now? I did a run with full MF gear on my DH with crappy stats and elites were going down easy and I didn't die once. Now that the drops will be the same in every act, I think a lot of players will be farming it if they are not geared with items worth millions.

Also ring is useless imo.


It is since they nerfed it right down proc wise. The exp might be a bonus but I never bother even with a red helm gem tbh, so will be starting at MP2 on act 1 SK and Butcher - like the olden days : - 0

All acts (at MP1 +) will have ilvl 63 monsters and loot ROLLS, though the ilvls will be 58 - 63 in ALL acts.

This thing about rolls is a bit unclear to me. Does it mean right now I have to pick up everything yellow because it has a chance of being as good as current iLvl 63 yellows?
If yes, this is huge blow to farming efficiency :( I know iLvl63 names by heart and right now pick up only these, so I visit town only once at the end of my run.
Still, I look forward to see A1 again. I think I am going to farm mostly A3 simply because I like it the most, but mixing it up from time to time will help me to not get bored with the game too soon :)

You're wrong :)

Once you raise MP to at least lvl 1, all monsters become lvl63 and item level distribution will be the same accross all acts. This means that the same percentage of ilvl63 items will drop in Act 1 just like it does in Act 3/4. This was confirmed by blues.

+1

Even A1 without mp will be worth farming alot more than before, since there wont be any rares below 58ilvl in inferno anymore.

For variety I'll go back to act 1 farming, soooo bored of act 3 (even though its fastest)
I'll do the first run at mp1 then ramp it up till I hit the sweet spot - likely 3-4 for efficiency, 5-7 for challenge.

Act 1 is much much easier too.. none of those nasty creatures whos elites are lethal to DH

Continue with ACT III as that is the fastest. Also ring is useless imo.


Are you serious? Blue cows are fastest? Stinking blue cows with permashield that give them or anything they cats it on 100% more dmg and 70%DR?

Yes, because of their basics. F.E.

Most of the Act I monsters are slow and avoidable.

Lacunis are fast, ranged attack mobs everywhere and invisible SNAKES on Act II.

Teleporting PhaseBeasts on Act III.

Mr. coming-out of-nowhere Terror Demons on Act IV.


You forget the blue cows of Act 3. HateD those things since forever. Glad to finally be rid of them. Act 2 snakes are much more friendly.

act 3 will still be the best place to farm,since there are more mobs and elites there,and that means more xp and more loot.

you've been farming act 2 and 4 since launch? feel sorry for you :(

ill still farm act 3 - its got the best mob density iirc and has alot of elites. Might chuck on some MF gear to do act 1 maybe cos of how slow enemies are

im getting thrown in at the deep end and getting a ring on MP8 though. Got a wicked nice wizz friend with 270k dps whos gonna 'help' me get it. Im gonna just stand and watch as he kills everything

I will alternate A1,2,3 and 4 till i get the ring with nice roll (probably will be very long) at mp6.


This sounds a lot like my plan, but I am not sure if I will do it at MP6 though :-)

MP2-3, will stay in Act III probably. MP3-4 for key farming and MP5 for organs.

A1 will be easier than it is in 1.0.4 if you don't activate MP. As soon as you activate MP, A1 will become harder than it is currently, since all mobs will become L63 (instead of 61).

A1 for a loooooooonnng.. Watch Tower in Northern Highlands, my fav. farming spot...
all lvls of "Halls" when I will need a bit more hellish exp..

then A2 for the strange mood in deserts or in Dalgur O.

A3 is fine as well

I hate A4

I'll start out at MP2, probably. If it feels too easy, I'll move up a bit. If I start dying too much, or kills take too long, I move down again. Effective killing and safe survivability goes above MF, because if I'm able to kill twice as fast, I'll get more loot even with lower MF...
