Does amount of people in the game generally increase gold found on monsters or just because there are more people in the game more stuff is smashed therefore more loot?
Does monster power effect gold drop? If so, how so?
edit: Yes, WordMaster has the link below.
I'm pretty sure that inferno has the best gold found on monsters (per drop) but do the higher acts in inferno drop better or the same?
Also, from what I understand is that the gold find cap is 300% before nephalem valor, and the NV stacks gives you 75% for a total of 375%, please confirm.
edit: 300% is the cap, nv5 does increase it to 375%
Would the demon hunter be best suited for this achievement since he/she has the Ferret Companion (The ferrets collect gold for you and increase gold found on monsters by 10%)? On that note anyone know how/if that is affected by the gold cap? Probably want to be Demon Hunter until I at least finish up the achievement "Hunter or Hunted" (Kill 100,000 demons).
edit: Ferrats do not increase the gold cap.
Is there any other skill like the ferret companion?
edit: Barbarian has one that drops more items, but not gold from what I read of it.
Best I can tell for gold farming in inferno would be 6 stats minimum for mp0.
Strength, Dexterity, or Intelligence
Resistance to All Elements
Extra Gold from Monsters
Increases Gold and Health Pickup by * Yards
edit: Critical Hit Chance Increased by *%
edit: Critical Hit Damage Increased by *%
If you want all these stats in one item, seems that you can only get them in shoes last time I checked the Auction Hall.
These stats are just purely focused on gold and speed/survival, I'm sure crit chance and crit damage should be there since they both increase kill speed, but I'm not the best character builder so I don't know all those dynamics. Now if monster power does effect gold drops, then from what I understand the 2 crit mechanics would defiantly be needed.
Don't want to be bored while on the grind, but want to be efficient too. I feel like I need a balance, to keep myself interested. Better to go through whole acts or specific parts? Also probably be best to not grind on one character for mixing it up factor, but then there is the paragon levels to consider, more paragon means the less you need to have the gold find in your gear making me more effective killer to put other stats in its place... yet that makes me want to grind only one toon...
I feel a good jump off point to complete the one percent achievement is to hunt and kill all the unique/rare/elite combo's on hardcore mode, I would feel that hell mode would be the safest/fastest farm, though its less gold per drop then inferno... I just can't see myself wanting to farm inferno hardcore for gold drops. Yes I guess that makes me somewhat of a pansy, but I want to spend time farming gold not leveling dead characters. After I get all the unique/rare/elite combo's farmed up I think I'll switch to softcore mode since I can get GG gear cheaper and be more effective gold farmer for the achievement in inferno.
As of right now I only need 22 more achievements to obtain them all, and this seems to be one of the longer ones, and will help me complete some of the more pricey achievements. So, help is much appreciated if given. :)
edit: only need 13 more achievements now
