Scorpion Runs Getting Nerfed in 1.0.8

http://www.reddit.com/r/Diablo/comments/1bjorz/developer_journal_multiplayer_improvements/

^ Apparently Scorpions are getting their exp reduced by 75% in 1.0.8. So anyone planning to ezmode powerlevel to P100 might want to do the runs now. Though I'm sure new super fast routes will emerge with the new mob density.

This is IMO the easiest version of a Scorpion Run build, for anyone that wants to use it. I was able to remove a couple pieces of gear and still do MP10 scorp runs without issues using it:

Get at dem scorps while their HOT!

EDIT: What you can deduce is that even though they are increasing mob density outside of Act 3 it will not be as dense/efficient as Arreate Crater scorps since they are nerfing thier exp.

I miss the mass slaughtering that went on in the cow level....

Mouldran is such a smart man, blizzard constantly listens to his insight. They should just hire him as a freelancer.

150m xp/hr * 0.75 = 112.5m xp/hr ... which is still more than you can get TRing MP0-1.

So scorps will still be #1 post-nerf? :P

Babas will all move to KD2 .. but monks can't do MP10 KD2 with 50m gear like baba's can so we are still stuck yes?

Druin is it reduced to 75% or reduced by 75% making it 25%? If so that would be 150m xp/hr * 0.25 = 37.5m xp/hr...almost nothing =/

I hear some guy wrote a really great guide about getting high xp/hr in Act3 MP0? I might check that out! ;)

I could be wrong but yes that sounds drastic. I guess they dont want us torturing the poor scrops anymore.

For shame...

With all the efficiency and math posts here I figured we (Monks) were better than this :/

Scorpion = 8 characters
Crawler = 7 characters (MORE efficient to type!)

That's not even mentioning the fact that their ACTUAL name ingame is also crawler lol XD

Scorp = 5 characters
Crawl = 5 characters but is significantly harder to type (try it)

Scorp wins!

Furthermore, plural of Scorp is Scorps, works; plural of Crawl is Crawls which is almost a word. Fail.

Scorp winzzzz!!!111

I think people just like the phallic association the image of a scorpion brings into their subconscious more.

It's overrated! I'm considering swapping back out the exp gem for an amethyst to be a little more safe!

But leveling is soooo slowwww without it I hate it! Better safe than sorry though I suppose.

Back when I worked at Chi-Chi's, we used to say "the rice is nice, but the beans...the beans are mean!"

Crawlers are creepy.
Scorpion is one of the five deadly venoms!
