tonight at 8pm EST, I'll be on CDXLIV's livestream helping out on the DH educational monday. (cdxliv)

for those who don't go on reddit, or check out livestreams, I'd suggest checking it out. I've learned a lot from this stream, and they got me hooked into the twitch community. Its actually because of them, I've built up most of my characters.. (WD isn't 60 yet).. phoenixrage#1568 - Community - Diablo III

CDXLIV currently holds the "record" for MP10 azmodan kill @ 13.6 seconds ( World Record MP 10 Azmodan Kill 13.6s 10.1M DPS - YouTube )

Here's the past results from previous educational mondays.

Monk: http://www.reddit.com/r/Diablo/comme...d_and_results/
WD: http://www.reddit.com/r/Diablo/comme...ch_doctor_mp5/
CM Wiz: http://www.reddit.com/r/Diablo/comme...tional_monday/ - although they say it can be made for a much lower budget and still do perma freeze, just will lack DPS.
WW Barb: http://www.reddit.com/r/Diablo/comme...ww_barb_build/

for WW barbs wanting to paragon farm in low MP levels check this out.

Finally found the house of curios to complete the act I tasks achievment. I usually do full area clears when I'm playing, so the fact that it took soooooooo long to find suggests that it's a very limited random event.

So ok trying to learn how and where to farm to get the following

legendaries and better drops
I'm presuming from some of the reading I did act3 works well (but doesnt act 4 drop better ones or is that not how it works?), I know the one act3 run has lots of mobs.

Also I can fly through pretty quick on MP1 but I presume the higher the MP# the more chance fora drop and the better the drops? Or am I off base again?

Also where is best place to farm/find the recipes things cause I want the one where you can make legendaries etc..

I don't play nearly as much anymore.. if any actually but Act 3 is your best bet for para leveling. I ran my own extended version of the alkazer run which took 30 to 45 mins and usually got 2 legen in a run on Mp3. If you're grinding para then just do normal inf or mp1, depends how fast you can clear it.

My WD's pick up legandaries like crazy for some reason. I picked up 2 more level 60 ones Sunday morning, bing, bing, granted they both sucked for level 60 items but it finally got me some firey brimstone. My barbarian has been farming act 1 of inferno like crazy and he's picked up nadda. His gear isn't really up to act II yet, I tend to spend more gold than I get with him. It would probably be better if I focused on outfitting one level 60 char rather than a whole slew of them

Act 3 MP0 is the most efficient in terms of farming loot and paragon levels. Since monsters in Act 3 are already level 63, farming it at MP0 is the same as farming Act 1 & 2 on MP1 and above. If you can kill mobs relatively quickly on higher MPs you can always raise it for the magic find bonus until you reach the higher paragon levels.

What is your battletag?

I never thought of that... I've been doing MP1, but VoA + key runs would go pretty quick on MP0. Do keys still drop on MP0?

edit... NVM... VoA is act II. Still Act 3 fields are fairly target rich as well....... ;)

edit#2.... Nope... no keys for MP0
