Idk Eric, I always find your mixing of skills interesting, but I rarely understand your thought process.
When I'm farming there's a constant balance between time spent moving, and time spent killing. Increasing movespeed will have diminishing returns on efficiency cause the ratio of time spent moving over time spent killing will shrink as you become faster as moving.
Same with dps, and you increase DPS time spent moving becomes a larger and larger % of your overal farm speed.
Raising MP in essense uses this formula by lowering your effective DPS, or increase your time spent killing vs your time spent moving. This reduces the emphasis on movement speed.
Therefore is absolutely possible to end up with not only greater loot, but greater xp/hour doing this spec in MP10 than raw SNS-wormhole in MP8. In MP8 your kill speed is fast, so you require fast movement speed to compete. In MP10 normally your kill time is so slow that movement speed becomes almost a non-issue for farming speed as a whole.
If you increase dps by a large enough margin, its absolutely better loot. In my experience today it was even higher xp (around 15% more/h) than MP8 SNS/Wormhole.
