but act 1 inferno does drop better gear/gold ;)
I did one farming run yesterday and cleared almost 1mil in gold not including what i was selling on the AH

I don't just run to the bosses and I clear EVERYTHING including anything that is breakable while maintaining NV the whole time. Is it likely I or anyone would get a mil from 1 run often? Probably not and maybe the RNG gods just liked me yesterday.
04/06/2012 00:09Posted by Gravityi start on act 3 hell siegebreakers, run trhough to act 4, takes an hour tops, 250k average vendoring all.. its what i do since inferno is just a pain atm.. should note that if i do it on nightmare i get 200k.. valor buff and ferrets give you ok money anywhere rly.. but items can be more valuable from hell.. im sure all people have theire "best" place to go :P im lazy so i just do what ive mentioned
have to agree with this.. yes inferno will make you more but if your gear is sub par then it will be less per hour due to constant corpse running on the leet mobs.. i did act 3 - act 4 until i had enough to buy my self a reasonable set for act 1 inferno
Once you have your full GF set proceed to farm act 3 nightmare. Start at first heart of darkness quest and go until you kill azmodan.
This takes me ~20 mins and nets me 80k gold in that time.
Farm the breached keep all the way until the larder. ~50k gold ~15 mins
Both of these will let you farm 200k-240k an hour.
I should have a video saved of me doing this at justin.tv/shadow9041
The main skills i need/use are: Strafe (movement rune), bat companion, preparation (with the hatred regen) and vengeance.
I try to aim for as much pickup radius as possible (got 37 yard atm), my gold find is i think just over 200 unbuffed, movement speed is also good idea.
Obviously this isn't for everyone since it is expensive to get a full gold set + the boring repetitive runs simply breaking pots. The only thing to worry about is your gold find % and a few skeletons.
