Legendary Farming in MP10

Now that my gear and skills are up to it, I've been farming the last several days exclusively in MP10 (solo or with a party) and I notice a very significant increase in drop rate for legendaries. I always get at least 2 legendaries in an hour of playing. :-)

Any tips/suggestions on how/where to farm better or is this the best way to do it?

MP7-8, get 5 stacks in Core/Tower1/Cursed1 and run Keeps2>3 and fields, it gives me 2-4 in an hour. this run is short and keeps and fields monster density is high.

Mp10 is just not efficient 'cause getting 5 stacks take a while but with 500+ MF/GF legs have more chances in dropping.

MP10 farm is inefficient for 99.9% of the playerbase. Bonus item drop does matter but if it takes you 30min to do 1 mp10 alk run, you kill much fewer monsters vs 3 runs in the same time at mp6 or 7.

MP6 is my sweet spot but I sacrifice a little bit of run time to do mp7 for the bonus item drop. This costs me a minute or two in run time. If I had a bit more sustain/ehp, I would probably do mp8 at the cost a few more minutes.

How much dmg should one have to farm let's say mp7 efficiently?
Walked into this post and tryed to farm mp7 well i can handle it but it takes ages with my ~140k dmg (buffed)... I checked MasterPUA stats and it shows like ~120k i guess u are near the 200k buffed?

I do MP8 - I think MP10 has a bit too much health to be efficient - but even at MP8 I see significantly more Legs than I did at MP5-6. The difference is definitely noticeable.

I am a ww barb which means that paper dps is not a good representation of my tDPS. I've been able to optimize my build to hit the 26 tps breakpoint evenly on both weapons. My IK 5 set also allows me to achieve permawrath so it's very efficient.

What class and build are you using?

I agree, when i farm MP7-8 is definetly efficient for legendary farming, just not for exp. Its a shame because i like farming there, but next patch will be better.

Tried MP8 earlier and it is faster and the drops are almost just as much (the quality is still mediocre though. lol) so it means more kills and more experience compared to MP10. :-)

lol, in mp8 and 5 stacks i get to around 545% MF/GF and it sure helps get my chances higher to have one drop. but if rng doesn't go my way, i take my chances in mp10 just to get my "leg fix" since its hard to me to leave the game without one. guess this a sign that im addicted to the game.

da@#$ u blizz!

Same here! I don't stop farming until I see at least one legendary drop. And when it does, I go for another few more minutes just in case another is going to drop soon after (sometimes they do drop in short time intervals. lol
