Diablo® III

60 elites killed per hour. Loot Data

Hey guys, I'm here to give some data from my personal experience. I take great pride in playing online RPG's more effeciently than most people. I am equiped not because of anything I have found but because I'm an expert at getting profit off the auction house. I'm just one person and I understand that this data is just a small portion of the big picture of RNG.

Here is the screenshot of my elite kills:
http://i187.photobucket.com/albums/x316/fatyblob/Screenshot142.jpg

I have a playtime of 334 hours.
I have killed 20,336 elites.

That is a little over an elite killed every minute.

The magic find used has been between 300% - 400% playing monster power 1-4.

I have unidentified 75,152 rares and 313 legendary items.

Here is my top sales for each catagory:

amulet - 147dex, 61vit, 78str, 44mf, 10crit sold for 2.9m

weapon - fist - 751.1dps, 199dex, 77critdmg, 2.6lifesteel, socket sold for 8.1m

I have played this long and still never found 1 item that is very valuable. People usually say "maybe you don't kill fast enough." I assure you that people who say that are wrong and most diablo players don't kill 60 elites per hour. I highly doubt any one in the game kills 120 elites per hour so its safe to say it is impossible for me to double my efficiency.

I will keep playing at this level of efficiency and let you guys know if I ever find anything great. My reason for this thread is to vent out some frustration against the worst RNG i've ever seen in my 14 years of online gaming.

How do you keep track of all those stats? Excel?
Is there an API to get the number of rares and legendaries?

I can kill around 120 Elites an Hour if I don't loot anything and just Kill non stop in MP1-3, and I've got half your DPS =\

So yeah you're not killing Elites fast enough, where have you been farming? Want me to tell you how to kill 120 Elites in an Hour? =)

Here's my sales since Nov. 1st;

I have been doing the typical Alkizer runs act3. Please teach me how to double my efficiency like you. I am willing to try what you got in hopes of finnally getting something valuable.

You have found about a dozen items more epensive than anything i've found. I don't understand how you are so lucky. How many elite kills do you have???? I have 20k and didn't find anything like what you have found.

Well if you're just farming MP1-4 you should just use Bola Shot with Volatile Explosive... just 2-3 shots and huge groups of Trash Moves explodes, I use Strafe with Rocket Storm just for fun and it deals a huge amount of damage, and I can keep spinning since I use Vengeance Passive, I don't really use Steady Aim because most of the time I'm face to face with a monster, I just have it there on when I log out for show =P

I also use TOC with my Vault since I have 600LOH on one of my Bows I get good sustain and I don't even have to use Gloom most of the time, it deals a good amount of damage especially to large groups of monsters. You can still use Tumble it would take you faster to run.

I didn't want to tell this but well, just do VOTA, over and over again LOL! If you want the highest number of Elites Killed in an hour that is. 7-10 Elites sometimes 1-2 Goblins in there. I clear it in MP1-3 in 3-5 Minutes, leave game, resume. It's repetitive but hey, you want to kill Elites don't you? And don't worry about not having 5 Stacks at the start, Leg/Set items and Good Rares will drop even before you can get upto 5 stacks NV, I know because I've experience this, the Skorn that I sold for 65M there on my screen shot dropped with only 2 NV.

Yeah, because NV actually just guarantees you a Rare item when you've got 5 from killing an Elite, but if you've already got 300-400% MF right of the bat you will have a chance to drop a Rare or a Leg/Set item regardless.

Jace, I like your style and I'm trying all your advice. You have twice my elite kills and looks like 10 times better loot so you must be doing something right.

What quest do i need for this "VOTA" thing?

Thank you, you can start Quest with The Black Soulstone - Soulstone Chamber and just check point at VOTA, once you leave, resume game you will be inside.

But from the list of my sales, not all of those are from VOTA, most are from Act3 aswell, Leg/Set items drops from Trash mobs most of the time, but I just gave you my advice on how to kill the most elites in an hours time, so VOTA is the way to go if you want that.

You just have to remember if you're kill things fast, Trash or Elites the chance for a Leg/Set item or a good Rare will come by soon enough.

Reason why I managed to dress up 3 characters decently, and all of my Wizards gear are self acquired =)

Sorry, Jaces, I do not believe you. You obviously play a little bit of the AH tycoon game and have been probably flipping most of the sales you have posted for the month of November. Anyone can have a high elite kill (farming leoric's ignet for example in normal). You are not more efficient than chillaxin with half of his DPS no matter what the route.

Doesn't matter if you believe me or not, I do what I do, and you can do what you do. . . DPS isn't all that matter, you can have 500K DPS for all I care, but if you're running around in circles and it takes you too long to get form one Elite/Mob to the next someone with 200K DPS that can get there fast and smooth will still out farm you, because all you need is 100K+ DPS to melt Trash mobs and most Elites in MP1-3 anyway.

And I don't play AH tycoon, however I will admit that 2-4 items there were resold ones, not all were found, The Natalyas with Impale, the Skull Grasp with Impale(was going to try an Impale Build but changed my mind so I resold them) and one Amulet which was my old one, never said all items were found when I posted, I just said my Sales starting from Nov. But all in all, most of those were found =)

Give him a break. He is trying to help me, and i'm willing to learn. I'm doing his methods right now with lightning speed. I'd have 40k elite kills too if I started this character before patch 1.05 so getting 40k elite kills without some kind of "normal mode" gimmic is very reasonable.

Last VOTA run 5 minutes, 9 elites killed.

I agree with ScaryGary. I have 44k elite kills with 111,000 DPS, been playing since launch midnight and my sales for the month doesn't look like that. I do purely magic find runs and I don't flip at all. I play anywhere between 1 to 8hrs.

I don't get any kind of items like that. My best sells are 200-800k items that I find every other day or so. I get a handful of legends everyday but they all suck. HOWEVER, I did find a 1~3 billion ring earlier this morning :D. It took me MONTHS just to get that though. I haven't seen a high value item in the millions in weeks.

Look at Jace's picture again. He obviously cherry picked his high sales but we can't see the rest of his data which is important because they tell us if he bought items to flip and for how much. We all know how the system works by now to know that those kind of sales, especially on a day to day basis, cannot be achieved with just farming alone.

By the way, as for runs, I also run VOTA but I switch to Act 3 from time to time for the higher exp. Since A3 has more trash mobs that also acts as extra legend drop chance so it balances out. Less elites, more trash mobs vs more elites, less trash mobs.

Again I don't care if you believe me or not. . . doesn't matter, you're the same guy that didn't believe me when I said my Helm, Belt and Pants were self found right? Then I proved you wrong by showing you this;
http://i131.photobucket.com/albums/p301/anoobys/Screenshot011-1.jpg

But you seemed to have forgotten that, I wish I could have taken a screen shot of my Hell Cat and my Andariels when it dropped but I didn't know they were going to be awesome Rolls, I've found around 9 Andariels Visage for me to care.

Anyway we don't need to argue who's right or wrong, just do what you guys think is best, and I will continue to do the things my way. . . it got me where I am now, my Barbie Doll is awesome can do MP8-10 Ubers just fine, Wizzy is pimping, not bad for an alt and self acquired loots, and so on.

What matters is I've give Chillaxin my advice and it's upto him if he wants to follow them or not =)

Just a random. I played a public game by my fresh barbarian and accidentally found Zunimassa ring in the act 3 MP0. Suddenly I got 45 millions and bought the whole immortal king set.
Also saw another success story in the patch 1.0.4. One guy farmed quite long for Leoric ring. After a while he finally found it, sold it for 110 million and bought the legacy natalya set.

So you may get only vendor items, but some day you may find a single item which will give you lot of money.

Though now it is much more difficult to sell items and it is not cool to buy gear on AH instead of finding it by oneself.
