So made a quick guide for monks and others to acquire the BoA Item plans quickly. I found this to be the quickest taking only 1 minute and 30 seconds and has less RnG than depending on World Drops! Happy Farming
Crafting Plans and Jeweler Designs have been added for all of the new Rare recipes listed above These plans (excluding the chest piece) will drop randomly in the world, but have a 50% chance to drop off the following bosses when you have 5 stacks of Nephalem Valor: Skeleton King Spider Queen Maghda Zoltun Kulle Ghom Cydaea Rakanoth Izual
Thanks, did some testing too and for me as a DH with vault I found that Skycrown Battlements for four stacks and one at the end of Depth 3 was the fastest one, killed Ghom within 120 seconds. Guess it all comes down to RNG with how many elites that spawn on each area. Tried out some Depth 2 and most of the times you got four stacks there but not all the time while Skycrown gave me guaranteed four stacks every run so far.
But in either way, since there is a 50% chance for drop with five stacks regardless of MP, running MP0 ignoring all the white mobs is the way to go for sure whichever area way you choose. Prolly take a while to get all the plans but atleat you can sell and trade em if you already have it.
@ Tazeon. Yes, I agree that the optimal route should of been pretty obvious to seasoned Diablo 3 players, but some players don't have as much time to invest into the game as others. So this guide ends up being helpful to 90% of the player population that wants to avoid wasting time farming the wrong area for plans that have the potential to be huge upgrades for them.
Anyways, I will be making a new video that will show a very nice 1.0.7 Farm route that yields 20+ elites in under 20 minutes, which i was getting 50+ demonic essences an hour from and a large amount of rare, legendary and set items.
With the patch coming out hopefully this can be use to someone, I figure this plans since they are BoE will be selling pretty quick and for a premium price the first couple days! So if you have a hard time making money, here is your chance to become a millionaire.
Also keep in mind blizzard changed the way the plans drop.
