New to Inferno and getting your head handed to you? Want some Inferno level gear and you're willing to sacrifice time to get some? Well, you've come to the right place. Get ready for the easiest, most monotonous, stab your eyes farming known to Sanctuary.
Rumford at the Gate
Step 1: Select Rumford at the Gate as your quest.
Old Tristram Road
Step 2: Follow the road northwest towards Old Tristram. Once you get to the yellow circle on the map, you will receive a checkpoint.
Step 3: Log in and out of the game repeatedly, running back west along the road to see if the Dank Cellar is open.
Step 4: Run down into the cellar but DO NOT go beyond the first doorway you see. From a distance shoot (sorry melee) the little guys digging at the open treasure chest.
Step 5: PROFIT! Wear magic/gold find gear with no survivability because you will never get hit doing this. It's just free loot for new Inferno characters and I don't believe it's going to get nerfed anytime soon. There are literally DOZENS of spots like this all throughout the game that you can log in/out close to waypoints in order to get the right random chests/dungeons/treasure goblins/etc.
Always leaves a bit of a bad taste in my mouth to see these sorts of things. I mean hey, if you want to do a monotonous grind for gear and gold, not actually taking part in the challenging and fun part of the game... Go ahead, I guess. All I know is I do enough monotonous grinding for my job.
I much prefer doing runs through a dungeon, getting 5 stacks of NV then killing a boss for explosions of loot. That feels brilliant. This? Horrible. Just go back to Hell if you really need gear, that place drops more than enough...
