This is my inferno act 1 farming wizard:
149% MF unbuffed
240% with 5 NV
I can face palm everything in Act 1 without dying.
I usually clean the cemetery of the forsaken to get my 5 NV and then start from leorics manor to the butcher. I do not run. I clean every dungeon.
This will give me roughly 75-100k gold after selling unneeded blues and yellows. And I find a lot. Nearly one whole page in my stack every time full of yellows. I found 2 sets and 3 legendaries in 7 runs so far. And a couple of items worth putting up on the AH.
The set and rares never drop from elite or champion or bosses. They came from the jar of souls and random white monsters. And at various stages of my 5 stack NV build up.
I think this is a good strategy to item up for act 2. Every time I cannot proceed in act 2 I do a run and find something more useful. Act 2 is still pretty damn hard. Keep in mind I do have other gear when not farming.
Just wanted to share!
