Diablo® III

Inferno Farming

So I beat inferno a little while ago I have decent gear but obviously not good enough for master I since I die a lot. Where should I farm gear? And what stats are worthy of master 1? My barb is 73k dps with mf weapon, 6k armor, 56k hp and 300 res.

stats wise I struggled with my barb for survivability in Master I until I could muster around 500 all resist.

Gear is important but how you play is more important.

Barb needs at least 3% to be effective. You'll need around 400-500 all res. Of course, it depends on your gears.
crit chance > atk speed > crit dmg > str > vit

Try to get a mace weapon with life steal with the highest dmg. That's your first priority.

Not exactly sure how loot distribution was changed on the console version, but act 1 and 2 on the PC have a lower chance to drop higher ilevels. This was probably changed, but act 3 remains your best bet because it has the highest mob density.

Thanks I have been seeing more drops from act3 should I farm a specific spot or just do runs through the whole act?

^^^ Do what he said.

Some people Just do Keep 2--> Rakkis---> Keywarden though to save time. As of now, Keep and Rakkis are EASILY the best zones in the game, so plan your runs around them.

I recommend playing in groups as often as you can, regardless of your farming route. The bonus for playing in a group is huge. Also, be sure to play in different areas if you find yourself getting tired of doing the same old run. This thread about farming routes is a good resource if you want to add some variety.

Thanks for all the input everyone I haven't tried keywarden yet.

Yeah, I remember when they said that the new group improvements were issued to rival single player bonuses, not overcome them.

On the other hand, I run into so many leeches in high MPs that I often resign to faster single player gains anyway.

If playing alone do you just have to find the keywardens?

So is Monster Power on the console called Master?

It's got difficulties within difficulties kinda like monster power. Easy, medium, hard, and master 1-5.

im loving farming in a3 on my dh in hc. and with the zone resets that happen in console if you farm keep 2-3, rakkis, arreat 2, core, stonefort you can go back to keep and do it all over again without leaving the game, so you keep your NV up at all times.

I do it on master 2, easily with my barb, I could prob try master 3

legendaries drop like rain in there...in about 10 runs last night, I found about 14 legendaries, 5 set/1 plan/8 reg

one of the sets was the IK chest, which was a huge upgrade for me
