I don't know the best, but in act 3 I'm doing skycrown first to get stacks, then kill keywarden in stonefort, then kill ghom.

Get's a decent number of keys and plans.

that seems to be the obvious choice....what chapter is Cydaea in? Ghom is in chatper 3...dunno if it will be worthwhile to run all the way to Cydaea in towers/arreat

^^^ except I skip keywarden. Skycrown gets me 5 pretty quick and then off to Ghom with a TP and WP.

Sorry for the 1001 questions, but I'm at work right now and wont be on for another 4 hrs...but what are the prices?

I've made a decent amount of gold selling them so far, they will get even cheaper and then be not worth it, but so far selling them is good. I've only kept the int plans, and I probably should have sold them too since the price is going to plummet.

Edit: I'm also not doing mp10, although I can. The gain is not as big as it is with keys and ubers so I don't see it being worth the time. I'm at mp7 with glass cannon on right now.

Don't bother to farm them. They are cheap on the AH. Got bracers for 120K (of course I got *13* of them because the AH is borked) the gloves for 450K and the ammy for 1M.

I dont rreally want hellfire rings and I dont want to spend the time searching for the Key warden. I can get 5 elites really quickly in Skycrown and then TP, WP, and kill ghom.

If you want to hunt them, instead of buying them, the best route i have found is tower1-2 usually get 5 stacks, if not i just tele out and do a stack in keep 3...then go back to wp so portal is still at Cydeaa... kill Cydeaa...Then I go and kill azmo(even though he doesnt have 50% drop...then just go right through to act 4 and kill izkuta or whatever his name is, then i kill rakanoth...3x 50% drop rate boss's in about 15 minute run!!!
