What MP level do you farm at? and what run?

Demon Hunter
I am usually doing act 3 on mp 2. some people i know do it on 1 because they say you get through it faster. And he only gets up to 5 stacks then does the keeps and then restarts. I usually do most of it, like the keeps, rakkis crossing and the thing before that, and the 3 levels before azzy and him. What are you guys doing?
Full Act 3 runs, MP8. Start at Azmo and run backwards from there. No cave, no barraks, no foundry or battlefield stores.

Stick your nose in the stores to see if there is a champ pack in there though.

Just curious, if doing full runs why start at the end? I know the popular alkaizer routes and variants start at end to get quick NV stacks, but they're resetting the game frequently.
MP3 for me. I get my NV stacks from Keeps then straight to Bridge then run all the way to Azmo. takes 30 mins. I tend to kill white mobs for Exp and they tend to drop Legends too. I think the quality of rares and legendary in mp3 is pretty good and I can multishot everything which makes my runs so much faster. It's best to do a full run instead of doing small bits of each area. I get about 3-4 legendary drops per run sometimes and that's from doing a full run.
MP 6-7 Act 3. Either a full Act run or I start at the Keep's Depths.

If I wanted more speed then I'll lower it down. I usually run those MP's for drop rates but I'm not lucky at times.
MP3 with my 300% character magic find gear on.... for fast easy runs.
MP7 with survivability gear for key farming and ubers.
imho you're still better off doing MP1 unless you're in the mid 250k dps unbuffed.
you kill more
you gain xp faster
more drops
doesnt require as much gear

the only reason to do MP5+ would be to farm keys/ubers

the alkaizer route is about 15 elites btw, not just 5. anyway, once you hit a certain paragon level, whites drop legendaries more than elites do

I start at the end because the mob density in the Core of Arreat and Tower of the Cursed are lower compared to the rest of the run. This means that you get your 5 stack before you clear the areas of high mob density, such as arreat craters, battlefields, fields of misery and the keep.

I get more XP farming MP0-1, but I get more legendaries on higher MPs. I still do lower MP runs to help my paragon leveling (these last 20 levels are really slow) and hope that I find more legendaries at low MPs as my Plvl continues to approach 100.
I do MP4 just cause it's not much harder and the added 100% mf is nice.

Edit: I do alk run + rakkis, keeps 3, then hit up stonefort.
0 for exp, 5 for keys, 10 for ubers.

I usually do *near* full clear for exp just because short routes are too boring. I usually do exp runs on secondary screen while watching something on the main screen.
MP0 for paragon leveling/farming, Mp10 for keys, MP 10 for organs.
Mp 5 to 7 for farming and key runs. Mp 1 for speed runs.

Do you guys find the drop rates of legendaries significantly higher at higher MP?
MP1... @ Bastion keep. sometimes i do MP2 since the walls and doors in Bastion keep gives me a great advantage over Mobs & Elites. (spike trap the door, snipe away)
MP 6-7 Act 3. Either a full Act run or I start at the Keep's Depths.

Ohh Cool.. is that the gear is see in your profile that you use to run MP6-7?... interesting....oO
I mainly Run MP2-3 . But occasionally MP6-7

Yes, I'm getting 2 - 3 legendaries per hour on MP8. You won't notice a significant difference until your paragon lvl is pretty high, though.
MP3 act 3.

Start on Kill SB quest, clear keep depths 1-3, clear rakkis, fields, then do SB. After that clear everything down to azmodan and after him hit up keywarden and restart.
