Diablo® III

Silencieux Run

Idk, i've been running around MP6 yesterday. Got ~480 MF on max NV. Found Natalyas Bow, Zunima Boots, SoJ, IK Gloves, EF and that stupid Polearm. Also got some nice rares from it.

1 run takes me ~45minutes but i made like 100m in those 45 minutes. Compared to my usual runs on MP0 that is an increase of ~95m gold lol.
//Edit But it could be that i just got lucky :)

I'd suggest you do the tower level 1. It's an easy 2-3 stacks. I'd also suggest that you reverse depth 2 and depth 3. Depth 3 is smaller and you will usually get 1-2 pack there, enough to get you to 4-5 stacks and do level 2 for max XP.

I tried this 7-8 times from the original thread (all of Keeps 2, Festering and Sands), got 1-4 legendaries every time where were 5 packs. This was until the last run when I got none. I stopped not cos I think it doesn't work but I have been doing other runs/ubers in the game since.

Haven't found much but useless Legendaries since the maintenance.. Hmm. I guess since I found my IK chest rather, kind of lame.

Tried this twice and got nothing :(

tested this for a few days a few weeks ago. A 5 pack keep 2 map had no correlation whatsoever with mob density in other areas. I still get maybe 1 elite in arreat crater sometimes. Sometimes almost empty maps and others normal.

Conclusion: Placebo effect. Having 5 elites in one map already gave you a bias in your mind telling you that you encountered more elites. However, if you do some data crunching, you will find out there no, there is no difference at all with the other maps...

I agree that having 5 in an area does not effect anything outside that area. I'm sure there are games that have more bosses than others but just because a single area has 5 doesn't mean every other area will have the max spawns. I've had areas that have spawned with 5 on act 3 and I've cleared the entire act and not gotten anything. I've had multiple areas with 1 pack and walked away with a unique or two.

Next time before you kill a boss flip 3 quarters and if all of them land on tails you'll get a good drop. Try it once.

Wrong and wrong. I've used this method and it has 100% success rate for the past 300+ runs.

On my last thread, someone posted their data that they found and every game had both more elite packs, and more trash mobs than games without 5 elite packs in Keep Depths Level 2.

do you get more legs from elites or trash mobs? I'm wondering if i should just skip trash mobs at paragon 100.

Trash mobs, definitely.

10 runs in a row w/ 10-15% more mobs = coincidence?

As usual. our choices are select parts of act 3 or select parts of act 3.


You can use this method in act 1 and 2 with Festering Woods and Desolate Sands, however act 3 has a naturally higher mob density either way, so most people choose to farm that act.


I don't see how OP's method can be done in act 1 or 2.

Our farming choices are select parts of act 3 or select parts of act 3.

The same occurrence happens when Festering Woods results in 5 stacks and Desolate Sands in Act II. (FW = Act I, DS = Act 2)

Why would you go to keeps two without 5 stacks first? The most mobs are there. Seems silly to me.

Errm. Because if there isn't 5 packs it is a waste-of-time game.
