I still am amazed to see that people think people cannot farm MP5-6 fast. Must be retarded.
I can 1-2 shot trash mobs with multi in MP5 and just move on. Unless the elites have some stupid dumb affix combo they don't take long either. And i'm not close to being geared when you compare my stats to high tier DH players.
Ignorance runs high in this thread where people with 71k damage, who live in a box don't think it's possible for anyone else to do anything else faster.
The question is not whether you can clear MP5 or 6. Someone with half your DPS could clear MP 5 or 6 too so that is not even worth mentioning.
The question is how efficiently one can farm loot. If you can clear MP5 in 1 hour, chances are you can clear MP4 in maybe 40min. Each MP level beyond MP3 adds about 40% HP to mobs. For someone to clear MP5 efficiently
they would need 40% more dps than someone farming MP4, since the HP increase is that much going from 4 to 5.
Simple question: if you were to do MP 4 instead of 5 or 6, how would that affect your loot farming? Would you honestly tell me you farm loot slower
in MP4? I find that hard to believe. Trash mobs in MP5 can have 2mil+ HP (Colossal Golgors are an example). Maybe your Multishots can one-shot scorpions but you're not one-shotting the tougher trash mobs. Also the real bottleneck is the elites which waste the most time. you're taking 40% longer to kill an elite pack in MP 5 than in MP 4 at minimum (I say minimum because we haven't even factored in the increased resource consumption associated with longer fights).
No one ever said it was impossible to clear higher MPs. But the way I understand the term 'farming' is that it implies efficient clearing of mobs. Others may define it differently. I mean there are tanks who claim to be farming MP 10 just because they don't die. I don't call it farming when it takes 1 hour to kill an elite pack though.
