The problem with that "what is the best spot to farm" question comes from the fact everything can be dropped anywhere. As long as they don't change their philosophy (and they started a little bit with Key Wardens) it doesn't matter the shape of the content, be it the game as we know it, an endless dungeon or whatever, players will find what gives the most reward/hour and farm that place.
So much THIS.
People can claim that the whole 'MP0-10', 'first 30 minutes' floors of the endless dungeon is the only efficient part, but that does NOTHING to change the fact that you've now created the new Alkaizer mandatory run. I know this for a fact because the MP10 Decaying Crypts run doesn't even take 10 minutes. If people can squeeze the best exp and loot out of the game for only the first ten minutes of the endless dungeon, then by god they'll keep grinding those ten minutes, and screw the rest.
I still hold that best solution would be not to create an endless dungeon. Barring that, use existing dungeons and tie them together to give them an 'endless run' feeling, and make sure that the rewards are not exactly the same as for grinding normally.
Otherwise, if all you really want is epeen bragging rights, make it so that the endless dungeon drops NOTHING except for health globes and potions. No gold, no experience, no white drops, no easter egg blue item named after an obscure 1980's Amiga only computer game, NOTHING else.
Implement that, and I'll bet you half the people asking for the endless dungeon will drop the idea, showing that their true intent was just an easy, mindless place to farm.
well it could be fine i guess with it, though a few ideas
well xp could be lowered to 1/10 of the current xp gain of normal mode mobs and do something with drop rates or make it so a chest awaits after an lvl is finished.
- open the chest and get a reward depending on lvl
- continue and increase the loot of the chest
another option of loot could be to simply 1/5 the drop rates in endless dungeon.
I don't care about effieciency, since for me it gets quite boring quickly.
