if it's equal i'd say mine as well get stacks to get some DE

Of MP level bonus, NV, Strength in numbers, and +%XP gear, I had thought that only the new Strength in Numbers bonus was multiplicative, with all the others being added. Druin is not specifically contradicting my understanding here, but the context seems to imply I've got this wrong.
Can someone confirm how they all combine for me? Just curious.
Anyway, my (completely unscientific) experimentation seems to suggest that it's a mistake to not run the Weeping Hollow for XP. I understand that it sucks for items compared to FoM, given the low drop rates of the enemies there, but I seem to get XP at a very fast rate there. Because my runs are going to be longer anyway, I always include Woods and Leorics to get the NV up beforehand.
Bonus experience % adds to MP. NV, Strength in Numbers and Shrine add together before multiplying. For paragon levels integer bonus experience is negligible.

Nuh-uh! I get 200+ Kill streaks there. That's tons of extra experience over time.
have you perfected act 2 farming route yet? also what about act 3? or is act 3 just crappy? I never hear people farming act 3. is act 3 good for anything?
Though that maybe true that time you spent killing there could be used elsewhere to earn more exp...
the monsters just move to slow in such a open area so the density is not great. FOM is great cause the monsters move faster. decaying crpyt is great cause it's a narrow hallway with same density if not more of weeping. for archons where density doesn't matter i think it's a great spot.
09/03/2013 11:30 AMPosted by DruinI have found that the max xp/hr comes from hitting Warrior's rest -> CotA -> Crypts WP -> FoM -> Decaying.
Something I'm more curious about then the route itself is HOW to run DC
