    You can farm 100 mil/hour without goldfind, lets say with gf you farm 500 million/hour. And you dont really need more than 200-300 million, thats why i say pointless.
    It's not about the gold - it's about the xp (see Custerian Wristguards).

    This has happened to me a few times. Be glad it was imps. On two separate occasions, I've had it happen with a winged assassin and a terror demon beating on me for the rest of the level. I can 100% confirm that, no matter the frequency or the volume, swearing at your monitor will not get them to disappear. Sadly, the only way to get rid of them is zone to the next floor.

    Got the Avarice Band last night (well rolled too though I spent something like 70+ diamonds and still couldn't get a socket to roll on it). Ah well, don't really need the socket in T6 anywho - Pet + Boon gems are good enough. It definitely speeds play even for DH -- I was speed clearing T6 rifts in about 5 minutes or so with the near constant haste and damage reduction.

    from the nature of your post, you likely don't have the patience for this, but . . .

    when trying to advance to the next level GR:

    1) run ~10 trials or so and get that level of key -- if you can't get that level of key in the trial, you probably have other issues.

    2) once you have a good number of GR xx keys (whatever level you are trying to progress through next), then run those successively until you get a rift that is workable. It doesn't have to be a zombie/conduit rift, just one that isn't pure evil or filled with imp packs all 100 yds apart from one another.

    3) enjoy success or, if you get a good rift and still can't progress - it's an indication you still have some gear work to do. Go speed run more T6 rifts which you should be able to quite easily if you can clear GR 30+

    All of that said, I do agree that Blizz still has some work to do for Season 2 and beyond to address possible rift composition as well further balancing on progression credit you get for each type of creature. Right now, they are just balanced around xp you get for the creature natively and that has not translated well to GRs (i.e. credit for zombie vs corrupted angel and the like is way out of whack). But Season 1 is pretty much a live pilot for those things and I expect it will get iteratively better with each patch and season.

    Some of my Marauder pieces had GF% when I found them. Other slots, I've just been taking spare pieces of Marauder's that I don't use in GRs and rolling GF% onto them. Pretty much have GF % on everything now but RoRG and Taskers - which to be honest, I'd be disappointed if either of those had GF on them as I use both in GR content. Now if Act III bounties would just give me another Avarice Band - I have sharded so many of those before I started doing this and now Tyrael is being stingy with them.

    5 sentries can be useful for cursed chests, the more you kill the faster it spawns mobs
    I have a scrreny somewhere of 316 killed on 1 T6 cursed event using 3 sentries -- I'd hate to see what I could do with 5 sentries :D

    Don't get me wrong - if my Rucksack had GF % on it, I'd use it in this setup but I've been surprised how much work 3 can do in T6 with the lower mob health vs high GRs.

    Yeah, I've found for DH not using Leoric's and keeping Tasker's in place is better for speed due to keeping your sentry breakpoints in place. Leoric's doesn't buy you that much extra find even when perfectly rolled. That said, if your Rucksack doesn't have gf %, swapping that out for T6 is fine as 3 sentries is enough to speed run T6 assuming you kept your other pieces in tact.

    Also, nice chd% and gf % on the Kymbo :) You don't really need the affix heal if you have gold wrap but that's def a nice % roll.

    Been doing this awhile now - adding more gf % pieces as I go. I have 11,000+% gold find now -- 4 billion xp and counting now :)

    Not spam running a specific bounty though, I'll complete a full set of 5 for keys or the legendary in the cache, but mostly running T6 rifts trying to find those elusive perfect pieces of gear. The paragon boost while doing this is a bonus (especially on a seasonal character).

    That's the primary reason I'm doing this to be honest. The genesis of the idea came from getting Paragon levels onto my Seasonal DH very quickly. I'm far beyond needing the gold at this point, but at the % find and the amount that is dropping, I'm getting a significant percentage boost of xp for each T6 rift run. I know I've gained more than 2.5 billion bonus xp this way already and it keeps rolling in.

    Even if you get past 38, around GR40 you'll need unity plus ~12 mill toughness or Cameo amulet to not get one-shot by jailer. As to rift progression, it is definitely RNG dependent and often a zombie rift + a conduit pylon have more to do with getting the next level rift complete than anything else.

    posted a message on Fastest/Easiest Goblin Farming?
    I just spam ran Core of Arreat -- somewhere between 20-30% chance for a goblin in my runs but each run is less than a minute because it's one linear stretch to search so you can jam out a lot or runs quickly. I was incredibly unlucky until then but brute force got the thing to spawn. Once you get it once, you don't ever really need it again - the gem is the gift that keeps on giving.

    It's good for speed running T6 normal rifts -- gold keeps you moving fast as well (secondary part of hoarder gem) and belt keeps me pretty much invulnerable even without Unity or the like. Also, trash mobs don't disappear when rift guardian pops (as with greater rifts) so I just drag the guardian to more mobs/packs if I need to. Earlier today, I was playing billy goat with the Butcher - he starts to charge at me and instead of dodging I just yelled, "Come at me, Bro!"

    Only bad part is you get used to being invulnerable and then the stack drops off while you dance on top of lasers or something but yeah it's fun. Separately, really regretting all those Avarice Bands I sharded. I have ferrets and the Raven from the bow running around picking up gold but lately I think they've stopped trying. They just keep giving me this "dude, you can't be serious . . ." look.

    So I've been messing around with a rank 37 Boon of the Hoarder (80.5% gold explosion) / Gold Wrap (for the armor) / Custerian Wristguards (for the xp) + alot of gold find (9,794% in T6). It looks like 14,014,760 is the max armor you can get (i.e. I kept picking up gold but toughness stopped going up because armor stopped going up). 14,014,760 seems like a strange number to cap at but it definitely hard stopped there on two different tests even though I kept picking up gold. Maybe someone else can figure why that would be mathematically significant -- I just like that I found the max :D
