This is the correct approach. I'm over 250 k unbuffed dps have have just started to consider running MP1 over 0. Run MP0 and move from elite to elite as fast as you can. Don't waste time on quests or killing individual / small groups of white mobs. You should do Alkaizer runs until you're about Plvl 70, then you can add in some maps with high elite density i.e. tower of the cursed 1 + 2, cave of frost, keep lvl 3.
While I understand the topic/question at hand is "general MP dps rule" that is very subjective. It also depends on your gear and play-style.
Absolutely. The biggest problem I have as a DH is the need to sacrifice speed in higher MPs. Instead of multishot or strafe, you're forced to use skill that deal with mobs slower. On low Mps, you can use speed builds, run quickly from elite to elite, and improve your legendary drops per hour as a result.
Blues have posted over and over the Moster Power was not designed to have scaling rewards, so that "people won't feel forced to play higher Moster Powers." This means that the biggest barriers to your efficiency are the time it takes to kill elites, the time it takes to move between elite packs and your survivability. Farming any MP where you are not 1 shotting whites and melting elites in a few seconds results in the nerfing of your efficiency.
