A1 FoM and WH vs A2 East/West Channel farming

  • #1
    has anyone compared the efficiency on both those areas in high mp? i was thinking of going a2 for smaller map with jam packed density rather than a1's huge map with scattered mobs.

    it's for a race later and i'm really torn between the two act.

    is a1 hands down the best?

    kulle's shag shack (archives of kulle) looks good too despite long hallways without enemies. hmm oasis still lacks density imo, not even the bunch of snakes makes it up for it.

    so hey, share your high mp level routes :D

    well as for me , the east and west are better - but is a bit tricky or difficult for some because of those poison spitters , but as long as you don't die yeah it gives more drops. If you're going for just trash mobs these areas are also good bec. sometimes you won't even encounter a single elite

    problem i see in the east/west channels are the dead ends and backtracking. yeah the poison spitters are strong

    also if you die, you will go back to town without the portal but new game, it will be there >_

    if there's a dead end ,and the backtrack scenario would take a long route just reset

    I also really like catacombs 4 in a1. has anyone noticed how dense it is ?

    I get better results in A2 lootwise - and most streams I've seen always go there for legendary competitions and the like as well.

    A1 is still the best place to farm exp at, though.

    Good thoughts... I am going to try Act 2 to see what you guys are talking about for loot.

    you mean cathedral level 4?

    For quick, efficient runs I tend to run

    Cathedral Lvl3 for elite
    Festering Woods for remaining elites until I have 5stack
    Fields of Misery

    For spelunking, I've been switching between doing almost all of A1 and doing the second half of A2, although that has already been the case since 1.0.3. Never really did take a liking to A3, with the exception of the Keep Level tilesets.
