I clear MP1 (keeps+craters+towers+rakis/fields+fort/battlements) all in abt 20mins. Get 1-2 legs per run usually. No MF gear but at PL61.

I do MP2 and 1 shot all the normal mobs


If so... why do you do this:

and MP3 for keys.


If you are one shotting mobs on MP2, you should probably be doing keys on a lot higher level.

i havent noticed a better drop rate, or better quality drops from higher mps. in fact, its more along the lines of same trash, less efficiency. about 75% of the stuff ive found of any value has dropped in mp0 or mp1.

Farm the highest MP you can and still have fun. Sometimes I farm a lower MP so I can shut my mind off and mindlessly grind. Sometimes I farm the highest MP I can because it is fun to have a challenge.

Same, in spite of having 1 PL100 character (sold all the gear but used to do MP10 with it) and a PL84 Barb facerolling MP10

Didn't notice better drop rates in higher levels. In fact, most of my nice legs dropped in MP0 doing XP runs

Farming MP9 for keys, less than 10 minutes/run and almost guaranteed drop

I dunno if the MP is broken for me or not but I find more legendaries in MP 0 than MP 1-2....all of which I can clear at about roughly the same speed.

So how could MP0 be better than MP1? I personally farm on MP2, and MP3 for keys.


I have 150K dps against demons and 200K against elites, and still MP0 is slightly faster for me than MP1. You need to be able to AOE one-shot white mobs even with min dmg proc from your weapon and no crit. Every extra second you spend on killing an elite pack or big guys adds up at the end. I do keys on MP6, but nothing beats MP0 in terms of XP/items (the XP efficiency may change after the next patch though, so MP1-3 may become viable for speed runs).

I do 1 shot everything but elite packs, they die in 3sec...I very seldom loose my archon form doing MP2, and get rather large kill streaks...ive even seen my archon form at 2+ mins on several occasions...I will stick with my MP2, I don't see the point in loosing that bonus XP and bonus MF just because I could kill elites in 1 shot. Since going on MP2 ive personally noticed a lot more legendarys. Whether its my imagination or not I believe it to be true, ive filled up a bank tab per week with them since switching from MP0 to MP2...something I was never able to do on MP0 playing 5 to 6 hours a night.

Technically MP6 would be best for farming because of the bonus item amount vs how fast you can kill.
Think about it 1 kill at 100% vs 4 kills at 47% chance of bonus items... I think you would find more bonus items in MP6 then 10 vs time.
