All-encompassing farm route that will allow me to obtain the maximum legendary/set items and demonic essences per hour.
Averaging 20 elites in under 20 minutes and 10+ demonic essences per run; also averaged 5 legendary set items and 40+ demonic essences per hour, on MP.6. However does very well on lower MP level!
Efficiency is key, you want to link high density area's by waypoints so you don't have to waste time teleporting.
Efficiency is independently based on your dps; magic find/item bonus per MP level vs Monster Health/damage gain As stated before, when farming you want to be as effective and efficient as possible. To achieve this you want to be 1 or 2 shotting white mobs and killing elite packs in under 20 seconds; you should be farming an MP level that allows you to do so. You also DO NOT WANT TO DIE!
* Note : Experience granted on graph is incorrect, here is the correct numbers *

I understand the alkaizer run for fast exp but why should i do this for loot ? You need 1/4 of the run to get 5 stacks and there are more great "high density area's".
Completely agree. The answer is that everyone just blindly follows the Alkaizer run without even thinking about it. And it's even worse if people create a thread and advertise something as their run without giving the millions of other people who "invented" the exact same thing before any credit. There's nothing worse than stealing an idea and claiming it was yours.
That being said, for 1.07 demonic essences I've heard VoA is pretty awesome, if you don't care too much about NV5 (XP/loot) it gives you an insane rate of elite kills per hour. Oh btw, credit to KingKongor et al.
Okay, end of rant, I have to say the way the OP described his run is very clear and he doesn't force anyone to watch a 10 minute video just to figure out which variant of Alkaizer he's using.
