having some GG gear makes it alot easier.
went from mp 10 to mp7-8 as far as ease of killing/farming while solo etc.
but lvls came fast. started just speeding through mp 5-6 with helm gem, hellfire , leorics. then after 30-40 paragons, went to rare ring in place of leroics signet. doing 7-8.
unless rolled well. a hellfires benefit is subjective. same with leorics / cains set etc.
on an XP per hour. depending on your kill speed, MP level etc. you either could be slowed down too much gimping your dmg and being on higher MP.
removing 1 exp% item and bumping up an MP or 2 could equal out the same thing.
i found dropping a couple lvls with hellfire ring equipped and gem in helm allowed for a slight boost while solo. so your squishyness isnt as apparent, and you can gain same range of XP gain.
added benefit is more items / DE's etc as well if your picking them up.
the biggest xp farming gains seems doing vota/oasis runs on act 2 , or crypt runs on act 1 running to see if it spawned in FoM. if so. go get 5 stacks in festering / leorics, then go clear crypts / FOM.
weeping hollow can be done but i find just re searching for crypts gains more over time.
They're both additive. I would pretty much never use a hellfire unless I didn't have anything better. Ruby in the helm is okay if you don't have to change any other gear to make it work, which means it usually isn't okay.
I've been reconsidering my HF and ruby for that reason. It doesn't seem very worth it to me. And I leveled my barbie without both since I wasn't in a hurry anyways, but para 100 still came quickly enough.
I think you're somewhat of an exception lol..your gear is so gg, the hellfire included that I don't think either of them are holding you back much.
But most people tend to fall below 50k HP at paragon 0 with a ruby. They usually don't have good hellfire rings, maybe one or two damage mods and typically lose 15-50k sheet DPS (a wide estimated range), and as a consequence of both, end up either losing tons of efficiency or having to back down an MP or two which ultimately makes their leveling inefficient as well.
