I think I´ve read it here that you level by running just keep 2 with 2xleoric+2xhellfire+ruby in helm+cain set. I´ve never specifically run areas just for the exp but more like highest mp I felt comfortable with. Anyway, I was curious how much exp I could gain with this smart idea of yours, here´s the results of my last 3 runs (by run I mean 1 hour of exp farming):
- exp +51,615,700
- gold collected +661,415
- lifetime kills +4,687
- exp +52,234,663
- gold collected +746,562
- lifetime kills +4,562
- exp +49,935,403
- gold collected +662,186
- lifetime kills +4,438
What gives me trouble is I had to find an appropriate MP that would allow me to keep up WotB, kill fast and not die too much at the same time. With the Cain set I´m sort of squishy and one green suicidal monster blow up means death, also reflect damage is super annoying
here´s the current set up for the runs
My crit is about 70%, 23 ticks on both weapons.
I´d like to know some specifics abour your own runs:
1. what MP
2. how many monster kills per hour
3. how much exp per hour
Any tips how to optimize these runs? Also, have you compared this to running standard/modifier alkaizer runs?
Anyway, also wanted to mention that azurewrath enchantress is fun, I´ve tested IAS rings (for now I stick with leoric+hellfire) on top of max azure aps and it was ridiculous, she´s an ice cold monster. Brilliant idea.
Nubtro! Its an honor.
For those runs. I run keeps 2 exclusively, with 0 elite kills. Only shrines I activate are Enlightened or Fleeting.
I average about 150 kills per minute it really depends on keeps 2 layout. Sometime's the layout is really bad.
I throttle my dps to about 30k and my HP is maxed out at 35k.
Here's a video showing how I do it:
(I know you asked for something longer than 1 run, but yeah. >.>)
Title is slightly misleading. I think its about 1.6m exp per minute in that run. (run is slightly above 1 minute)
I don't like the fast OH setup because to optimize ticks I'd have to time my hits which wastes time. (Hence why I use EF)
You can see in this entire video the whole objective is to rend as many units as possible in the quickest way possible. The WW build is just there for its mobility and serves its purpose by keeping you mobile. However, the way the mobs are being killed is predominantly through Rend.
