    need i say more?

    1. core of arreat
    2. tower of the damned 1
    3. depths 1
    4. wp to stone front but enter sky crown battlements door
    5. depths 2
    6 depths 3
    7. rakkis crossing to fields of slaughter
    8. core 1
    9. core 2
    10. tower of the cursed 1-2

    edit: oops my bad started @ 99,680,000 and ended @ 128,000,000 thats about 29m xp!

    i also died 2 times and i left out arreat crater 1 so if you dont die and add crater 1 you should get more.

    its the build that makes this possible and the technique. the technique is skip single monsters and run into the center of mobs and rend and smash. in the core of arreat, damned towers, and cursed towers try to skip monsters and head for elites only. link to build and gear is below. i could switch out blood lust for lacerate on rend, blood thirst for brawler, and change birthright on hota to smash and this would be even faster. i did this with only 180k dps buffed with weapon master, ruthless, and battle rage. my dps even goes higher once i keep up the 5 stack frenzy (rune maniac) and keep up wotb. this build is a little gear dependent just need crit chance, attack speed, and life steal. this was also only done with hell fire, ruby in helm, and mp5. say bye bye to ww? say bye bye to alkaizer?

    please post your results if you like this route and build mix for optimal xp.

    I dont like to stomp your run into the ground but.. there are runs that give over 150M xp an hour.

    This run will be nerfed in 1.0.8, but new runs will come up with much more xp than this one.

    try doing just MP10 scorpions in arreat 2 or just depths 2 or just cave of the ancients in act 1. Constantly killing mobs only in just these areas and reloading should get you far over 100M/hr

    Also, rend should be lacerate rune and HOTA should be smash, and you probably don't need frenzy as you should really only be using it to get fury (which bash is far better at). You should do some google on barb builds I think you'll find your build and xp/hr are pretty low comparatively. :(

    well i made this video with the nerf in mind. im not too sure if any other areas are really going to dominate a3 but well see. but also its the build that really gets the job done. once 1.0.8 hits ill try to see if i can get more xp out of other acts. so with the skorpions being nerfed by 50% and its chance of loot also you will get more xp and legendaries with my setup.

    say bye bye to ww? say bye bye to alkaizer?


    Well Alkaizer was doing about the same (upto 60m/hr) with his route/build, before the buffs to XP and 62k dps :)

    Also, the scorpions are not the only place to get over 120mil xp/hour. Keep depths 2 comes to mind.

    Sorry, no link, but i was watching his stream for a while at the time and saw it with my own eyes. He was doing between 45-60m/hr depending on the mobs layout and elites (amount, affixes like extra hp etc). He had a ruby in helm a SoJ and Leorics on follower only, no extra xp was available at the time (no MP, no HFR).
    I'm pretty sure there are videos of it somewhere.

    Dying is really slowing you down. Maybe try lower MP with no deaths to compare results.

    I tried MP10 in ACT2 Realm of Shadow. Was getting around 220M/hour. They nerfed this run, but yet again I don't have the best gear for Barb, nor I usually play him, so I'm kinda slow and make mistakes. Sure people can get much more than I did. Still I do believe it is gonna be better than 150/hour. And that was with much better gear than I have on my Barb.

    wow thats crazy dude but they are all getting nerfed.... what is the best xp farming available atm besides exploits....? and also guys my video is 1.0.7 not the ptr rofl....
  • #16
    Cyanicade posted a video that answers your question. That 150M/hour is the best know of, MP10 Killing those stygian crawlers only, but this is getting nerfed also. The only problem is that it will work that well for monks and barbs that are super geared. I've tried it With my barb the same I was running PTR and could not get close to 150M. On the other hand IN PTR 220 was like a breeze.

    Try Cave of the ancients (act1), kill skellies, save the summoners for last, since they summon more skellies, did this mp10 on my dh(might even be better for a barb), and it's ok xp, great for legendaries. At the same time, if you take quest 6, and take the 'talk to alric' quest, you can get a checkpoint down there.
