[Guide/Video] - Max EXP/hr in Patch 1.0.8 (solo/monk)

Hello everyone!

Ever since Paragon 2.0 was revealed I have been working to max my solo XP/hr and I have finally come to a place where I think I am pretty close to capped out.

I am up to ~220m xp/hr on average with a single-run high of 260m xp/hr so far!

I have written a relatively comprehensive guide on the subject with videos/maps/text so people can digest the material in whichever medium suits them best.

This is specifically targeted to the monk audience (and is on the Monk forums for that reason) but I believe the route will work for any class that can effectively "prime" or run through Decaying Crypt.

Note -- I do not personally benefit in any way shape or form from these videos so don't worry about self-promotion for profit blah blah stuff! :D

As always, feel free to ask questions and I will do my best to answer!

I am really glad to hear that!

I spend so much time playing my monk and talking on the monk forums it is hard for me to know when something will be of use to the other classes. Feedback like this is quite nice, thanks!

Btw how much more exp/hr would you get if you did this run but then opened it up to public and get 3 randoms joining you? I don't necessarily mean that you help them get 5NV but as soon as the 4th has joined the game you then enter the primed crypt?

Somebody doesn't Youtube... There's videos of people grinding decaying crypts from up to 5 months ago and I'm sure others have been doing it before then.

@DrunkTank - Well, the more info out there, the merrier. While the general content will be very, very similar across numerous guides and videos over time, there are different perspectives. I also have a paragon leveling guide, except with an Archon wizard (in my signature). Same thing really, including the Decaying Crypt, except I don't go in-depth to priming and herding.

Druin has one for a monk (so this really belongs in the monk forum, but I see he already cross-posted it there).

Shortest blue post ever! But well deserved, his guide is indeed nifty. I prefer group farming though (DH really need the groups for exp farming until next patch).

Cool thread.

Been doing that run for a while now, no need to be a monk to do it. Of course, now that you point it out here, it is sure to get the nerf bat.

DrunkTank: I've been doing this run for a while now, as a monk also. However, I wasn't aware of priming the crypts first and I don't use tempest rush (so priming wouldn't work with my skillset anyway). It's always good to get more information and ideas, which then in turn help other people do the same and spread what works for them around. That's how a community works.

I find his explanation of how and why things go together and his EHP talks quite informative. Most people go 'go to this waypoint, get stacks. If not, go to leorics manor'. 'Clear crypts. Repeat'.

Good work Druin
