Diablo® III

Eight elite packs in the Watchtower yesterday

Plus a named mob and a resplendent chest. So what's your record? Luckily none of them were on top of each other so I only had to deal with one at a time. Moral of the story: if you farm Act1, check if the Watchtower has spawned before you do anything else. If not, recreate.

Is it in the Hunting Grounds or the Highlands?

My record so far has been three watch towers in three games with no elites.

Beat that.

Northern Highlands. Take the WP there, check for Watchtower, recreate. Be careful of elites near the WP since you'll have no kiting room (if I see one I just immediately exit and recreate).

Its good, but really not that amazing.

90% of games you get 1-2 elites and a resplendent chest or goblin.

Worth adding to a MF rotation but you wont be regularly getting 7-8 elites.

I usually start in Leorics manor and work backwards, building up a few elites while on my way to check for the watchtower, so if it isnt there i do keep going since i already have a few stacks.

Leorics ---> Hunting Grounds ---> Norhtern Highlands ---> Watchtower if there ---> way point to the cemetery ---> clear out the tombs ---> back to leorics for Halls of Agony ---> run all the way to butcher if i'm feeling it.

Yeah. Gotta be real careful about stacked elites in the Watchtower though, it happens there more often than in other places. One time ran into one pack with waller, arcane, on top of another pack with frozen, vortex. Something was also lobbing mortars. Ran like a little girl.

Yeah usually you don't get that many packs in WT. We had one game with 8 or 9 elites ourselves. Was great!

you're leaving out festering woods, which has 4-5 packs every single time and rather small

Best place to farm elite packs in D3 is Vault of Assassin in Desolate Sand of Act 2.

Medium map, easy to navigate, and guarantee 7+ elite packs every time! (i think the best i had was 10), just no chest but sometime u get goblins ( i got 2x goblins once spawned in the same room).

Happy hunting.
