    posted a message on How I cruised to Paragon 800+
    np!
    i actually beleive they will probably nerf the amound of xp for each of these bounties, but im not 100% sure about it. i've been abusing them pretty heavily beforehand. if they do not nerf these bounties, i do believe this will be hands down the best method to paragon during season play!

    posted a message on How I cruised to Paragon 800+
    I managed to reach paragon 800+ using this method, and am currently in the top 100 in the world for paragon levels. this is by no means a secret formula, but rather a collection of tips. Considering this will be nerfed in 2.1, I figured I would make a quick guide on how to take advantage of this efficient route to get some paragoning in before 2.1

    The guide: http://youtu.be/0BW2eBJTMeQ

    I would love to here some of your suggestions on how to improve the speed, as I am obsessed with maximizing efficiency. Cheers!

    Seems like way too much work and time to start it.
    yeah i know! thekhazra den is just so long and torturous. defeating this insanely difficult quest just once, is much more work and time then leveling a character from 1-70 at a moderately slow and average pace. exploits are exhausting stuff!

    How is it cheating? It's exploiting. There is a big difference. Blizzard makes the rules, and we as players, follow them. If they don't like what we are doing, they will change the rules.
    Oh, OK, there's a big difference, is there?

    Let me rephrase. If you don't want to level to 70 repeatedly, don't exploit, just play softcore.
    Huge diff. This is just a fun little trick I discovered on my Diablo journey -- I figured I would share it in case anyone else wanted to use it, as well as maybe Blizz stumbling across my post and fixing it ;)

    If you already beat the game like 50 times. yes. yes it is ;)

    Read: boosted how many accounts to paragon xxx before sharing
    I've actually never paragon exploited this whatsoever. If you look at my character. he is insanely well geared. you cannot get items with this method, which is why I don't do it other then to powerlevel a new character. My favorite part of the game ATM is legendary farming. Blizzard has me absolutely hooked in on the new gear!

    ps. funny story - i only discovered this exploit when trying to figure out a fast way to paragon my monk. my little bro happened to be repeating the entire kazra quest for the XP (he just started playing, so it's cool to see such a clever xp method from him). I then spent some time trying to figure out a way to maximize it's efficiency, which turned into this exploit. the reason i state that is because i was only leveling the monk to start using him to spend my blood shards, because monks have a much better chance to find the cindercoat. (which i still havent found! lmao).

    Exploits like those that ive seen the past few days is what will break any ladder system, so hope they get fixed. If some remain when we have ladder that those who exploit those get their character reverted to lvl 1 or made non-ladder.
    It's a good thing exploits are being discovered / publicized right now, rather then when the ladders come out. Blizzard is doinga good job at Fixing all the nicks and crannies before getting down to the serious stuff.

    How is this 5bill per hour, if the video says 1.7?

    Good question! I should have stayed consistent with the titles.
    I was gaining about 1.7 bil per hour during my test runs. I have a terrible internet and my comp is going nice and slow today. i figured you could do this run in about 10 seconds with optimal specs. you get 14 mil xp from it. 6x14million = 84 million per minute. x 60 = 5+ billion xp per hour.

    I posted about this exploit in previously (Not on this specific forum), but Blizzard fixed that method. I found a work around in which you obtain the exact same amount of XP / Hour, which is absolutely insane. Here is the method step by step:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-mTpA8Oon44&list=PLhl-kORqduVNjRZI4N8r5pEG-Z5rLS3E4
    With a great connection and a decent computer, this method can be used for up to 5 Billion XP/hour, which is the highest known amount of XP/Hour available in the game BY FAR. Abuse it while it's still available ;)

    Edit: Although it is a nice effective way to powerlevel a new character (one you may not have ever played otherwise),I do not like seeing this kind of thing in the game, so the more attention it receives, the more likely Blizzard is to hotfix it.


    FAQ: does this work for paragoning as well as leveling characters from 1-70? Yes it indeed does work for both. It's currently the most efficient (by far) known method to do so.

    Can you do it with more then one friend/character at the same time? You can power level up to three characters at the same time, as long as they are on separate accounts (obviously :P)

    I'm not getting the 18mil xp per quest as shown in the video, is it nerfed? No it is not nerfed (yet). Unless you are doing it wrong, you most likely are not level 70 like I am in the video. The XP scales upward as you level up.

    I hope that when ptr is over there is no exp loss or gain in specific zones compared with each other tbh and the difference is in everything except where you gain exp fastest: that I can log on, play whatever with friends instead of finding someone that does 1 zone/run and gets me bored faster. Tbh making runs at all is just detrimental to this community. Though I realize bringing it to blizz' attention now will give them the chance to make changes before going live with them.

    Incoherent rant before going to sleep perhaps, maybe not. But you asked feedback. Well, there it is. I'm not sure what to think. Maybe there's an idea of providing feedback in your vids which zones need density buffs and putting a link to that on the official forums.

    Sorry for typos, can't edit for shit on my phone's browser

    although I do agree with you Kamisei- the more these runs are made aware to blizzard, the better the game will eventually be. i strongly disagree with you that videos like this are detrimental to the community though. I don't think you can be farther from the truth on that point.
    Of course there is many different ways players play the game. Some enjoy messing around in random zones, others prefer one zone or act over another, while others- such as myself, enjoy discovering new ways of optimizing exp. And of course, it is always good for the game to bring out the exploits so blizzard can correct them.

I'm working out which I enjoy to play and which could have great improvements with a density increase. Both Shadow Vault and Weeping Hollow are on the list (I'm actually running Weeping Hollow and Cemetery now at 52 cos I love it so much!)

    Thanks for the info, and hopefully they don't nerf it before some us get to benefit :)

    How worth it would it be to grab elite kills from like... VoA for NV?

    I don't think it would be too beneficial - only because the best way to farm this is on mp10 and ignore elites completely because they slow you right down. I would say if you had ELITE gear it would definitely worth a look to get the 5 stacks

    Mod Disclaimer: the latest PTR patch notes show a reduction to Shadow Vermin by 50%. The area should still be good for xp-farming, but the numbers could be off.

    I'm not sure how popular this zone is yet, but I haven't seen anything on it. This is, in my opinion the greatest zone in the game right now, hands down. The video says it all. Check it out - Feeback is always awesome!

    Try it out and let me know your stats!

    some people like to hear about guys like Faster paragoning to 100 in 80 hours.. so they could tryit themselves or even just admire his feat. it's obviously not for everyone though :P

    Also got 4 legendaries in about 1 hour which I have never had before ;)

    once you get better gear u can crank up the mp!

    I'm kind of addicted to maximizing xp so its hard for me not to get excited over routes like this! lmao. but your right,alot of people only view the paragon system as a bonus side quest - which i think is probably the best way to go about it. more enjoyable id say? :P

    Renaming the thread to remove the "this video is public" part. Unncessary clutter.

    Would be interesting to know what are the minimum required stats to do this :fret:

    I saw you almost got one shot quite a few times there. Dying over and over again to a Vortex or Jailer elite would certainly make this more of a chore than anything.

    Also, it's just for Barbarians so I'm moving it to the Barb forums.

    Thanks Zero - the title was bugging me! lmao
    I'm still messing around with the minimum stats/gear and will add to the post soon!

    edit: I actually only die maybe 1 in 15 runs and it doesnt take long at all to leave the game and restart. - dying at that rate would not have a huge impact on overall xp/hr

    This also works in KD2 on MP10, same build (possibly drop bash for killing spree). Kill trash only, if you run into a dead end/lose WotB/die - reset.
    Quest 'Find the Breach' will give you a checkpoint at the start of KD2.

    This run is actually the best for legendary farming, so if you want to combine xp+loot farming, you have this choice. For pure XP follow the vid.

    I'll definitely agree with you on that one! I should have actually stated that KD2 is better for loot farming! but a little less xp. (I was getting about 120-130 xp/hour KD2 meanwhile i was hitting near 150 on AC2

This is taking FULL advantage of 1.0.7's xp curve and it was actually used (and possibly pioneered?) by a barb from euro who managed to level from zero to Paragon 100 in 80 hours of gametime! Check it out and maybe test it out and lemme know how it works for ya! Cheers!

    Hey guys,
    After posting my last route, I had alot of questions about whether or not it was as good for farming items as it was for XP. The simple answer is no. It was completely designed for paragoning. I have, however, been testing loot efficiency pretty heavily lately. I brought back an old loot route I used before concentrating on Paragoning and tweeked it with my new findings. I tested everything from monster MP drop rates to elite concentration and came up with a great run. I would love to get some feedback on this, as it helps me greatly. Cheers, and enjoy the short vid!

    Quote from Speaker

    Quote from Avoid

    This route will punish your items and legendaries/hour, I wouldn't recommend it - the whole point of farming essentially is to get richer, not just to level up

    but that varies from person to person, goodluck

    Actually, about 75% of legendaries come from white mobs, which this route takes advantage of. In the case of players with good mf, or high enough paragon, the mf from nephalem stacks is pretty small. So, with good base mf I can see this route actually being a lot better for finding legendaries.

    I haven't noticed a drop off in legendaries/hour myself since switching, but I am max mf. Also, I don't really keep a running average either so I'm just going off of what I've seen. If someone would like to do some tests and give their numbers it would definitely help.


    Hey bro. I did log the legendaries I found during this run but not the others (Which I will test tomorrow I hope). At 250% MF these were my findings over 5 hours and 45 minutes of testing:


    Total Legendaries: 16
    2.78 per hour

    ilvl 61 Legendaries: 8
    62 Legendaries: 4
    63 Legendaries: 4

    If anyone is interested in logging some legendary findings on any of the runs,that would be awesome!

    Quote from JKlimek

    hEY LOOK, it's another "screw efficiency" post...

    I ENJOY getting awesome items all the time. You know how I got to that point? I power leveled, running as efficiently as possible to the point where I got great equipment and my plevel high enough to the point where I see legendaries on a regular basis.

    What a stupid post to make on a thread about exp efficiency.

    Yep, as Baron pointed out, I'm reading these ridiculous posts from people claiming that the Alkashitzier route (whatever the fuck) is the only way to para level. Now we're apparently whittling it down to new routes that save 1 minute and 31 seconds per 8 hours or whatever the hell is going on in this thread.

    It's good that people figure this shit for posterity sake but what's occurring is that far too many folks are buying into this idea that because X route is Y% more efficient, than all other areas/acts/routes are suddenly obsolete.

    It's a bad practice to play that way for many folks because this sort of mindless route running is akin to manually controlling a bot....it causes people to burn out and quit.

    It's not like players are forced to run these effecient routes... this is an option, that you can either use to powerlevel your characters at the quickest speed, or you can stick to your own thing for fun.. your acting like this is a post telling players to "Powerlevel or quit!"...

    Some players, such as myself and many others here, like to maximize their efficiency.. if not to get an edge, then to save ourselves some time.

    THIS IS IMPORTANT SO PLEASE READ

    If you are going to test this run and make comparisions, you MUST:

    -Don't touch shrines. They aren't the same run and you can't use it as a comparison.

    -Don't pick up ANY items. Pickup time affects exp/hr and we only care about exp/hr (ok, pick up legendaries, but be quick about it!)

    -You have to do multiple types of runs to have comparisons. If you make 60/hr doing this, don't cry foul because maybe you were only making 40/hr before on Alk's

    -Measure your time from start of game to start of game. Reload time is important! Also, use a stopwatch, seconds matter when extrapolating a small number into a larger one.

    -And last but not least, Measure your runs in multiple instances over time. That will average mob density better than calculating exp/hr for each run and averaging them all. Do runs for a full hour to get a more realistic sense of exp/hr.

    I'm sure there are a lot of inconsistencies between players when comparing xp/hr, so great tips JKlimek!

    wat i got from the vid. tbh i kinda like the idea of this new run. very fast and jam packed. no stack farming at the start

    you'll have to let me know how it goes for you if you give it a try. cheers bro!

    It's perfectly possible that two people came up with something without knowing about the other. Happens all the time, don't just assume that he copied it.

    I guess this is why people wanted you to post your logs - you didn't particularly strengthen credibility by improving your "faster than Alkaizer route" within just a few days of your first post. Secondly, there are still people who can't watch videos and/or would just like to read in one sentence what you changed, rather than watching yet another video to figure out what the difference is (which also requires everyone to watch your old video).

    Sorry for the rant, but I'm really interested in this but can't watch videos right now...

    Hey sorry Bro. I had posted the run and long below the vid. But I see someone posted on here before I could edit >< cheers>

    Also I'm playing a plvl 62 witch doctor with a hellfire on my WD and a hellfire + leoric's on my follower. This was on MP0.

    Hey man. What route were you doing previously? What was the xp difference? if you don't mind me asking. I'm just curious to see how other character classes work on this run

    Hey guys,
    I thought my previous paragon route (posted a few days ago: http://www.diablofan...then-alkaizers/) was the fastest possible. But after a few more days of testing, I came up with a route 10% quicker then my last one. That's 30% faster then Alkaizers famous route! Check out the video of the route, its a few minutes long and gets straight to the point. I also included stats this time as alot of people wanted to see my log. Let me know what you fellow redditers think, as feedback is always much appreciated!

    Quote from itirnitii

    why would you run skycrown first when the white mob density is good? You're killing all that trash with zero stacks. Plus traversing it takes too much time.

    Seems to me saving skycrown for after five stacks is way better.

    Arreat Core is the best for building stacks because it's short, has good elite density, with little time wasted killing trash mobs with low stack count.

    Out of the 6 zones I use in the route, skycrown has the lowest xp/min, and the highest elites/min. This makes it perfect for starting the run with, as you can get that 4-5 stacks quick without sacrificing xp. The Core of Arreat's xp/min is too low in my opinion, which is why I don't use it, as my xp/min drops significantly.

    Quote from Philss

    Hmm so this is alkaiser run but he run skycrown instead of core of arreat?

    Imo a faster way is to do core of arreat ­then tower of the damned lvl 1 and IF you dont have 5 stack run keep dept lvl 3 from the end to the start ( so this way you never get stuck in a deadend) . There is alway 2-4 pack in keep dept 3 and its a very small map .

    How is it the alkaizer run? lol...
    He doesn't have 2 of the 6 zones that are in my run... (including the top zone, Rakkis). Thats 33% of my run. And I don't have Core. The route is completely different..

    Quote from JKlimek

    so wait, your whole strategy to save 20% time is to change where you get your stacks? Why didn't you say "do alkaisers but start at stonefort and run backwards instead of core of arreat"... then your video could have been 7 mins shorter.

    Am I missing something?

    Forgive my bluntness, but your missing more then you think my friend. Alk doesn't even have Rakkis...Rakkis is the highest xp dense area in the game,. There is everything from grabbing the shrine at the end of FoS so you can run Arreat Crater 2 at a possible exp boost, to Getting the fastest five stacks while maintaining the highest xp possible (core is so slow and combined with ToTd, you may not even get your 5 stacks!!), while stonefort you will get 4-5 elites veyr effeciently. But no matter how you word it, the point is I was trying to come up with a faster run. AndI wanted to share what I found with this forum.

    Quote from vastling

    Some of us don't have video availability at work when we read the forums

    if you could give a summary of what your trying to do it is a lot easier for us then trying to piece together what your doing from other posts.

    If your run takes you 15 minutes it is probably slow.

    When I was doing calculations I was doing it on the speed that it took me to clear a zone and the number of legendaries I got from the zone out of 100 runs to get a ball park on if it was useful or not.

    I then optomized based on legendary drops vs time, which is not the same as xp.

    I then can run basically any of the waypoints to compare it vs the benchmark numbers relatively quickly.

    Or try other zones like vota but so far the modified alkaizer route with rakkis and keep 3 is the best I've encountered.

    I do stonefort just for the key but its not faster, I've done skycrown before but it was inconsistent for the run times and with some dead space can lead to wotb down time :(

    1. Waypoint to Stonefort Take the Door, Run Skycrown Battlements to End, Teleport to Town
    2. Wayport to Tower of the Damned Level 1, Run the Circle
    3. Wayport to Keep Depths 1, Enter Keep Depths 2, Teleport out at The Breach
    4. Wayport to Rakkis Crossing, Run the Fields of Slaughter, Wayport to Arreat Crater Level 2
    5. Run Arreat Crater Level 2
    6. Restart :)
    It takes me a little under 12 to do the entire run on average. This run is specifically made for xp/hour and not loot, although if you add the core and the caverns of frost in the fields of slaughter, it will be perfect for loot, as those two zones are extremely high in elites, but they will drop your exp/hour.

    skycrown is actually just as xp dense as FoS and ToTd, and it also has a much higher elites/min and total elites then all of the top zones. so it is perfect to start a run with, as you get a quick 4-5 stacks without xp loss on the higher dense zones.

    Normally I would love to share my logs... Maybe if you had some decent manners. On the more positive side, you should try it out yourself if your are in disbelief, as the run only takes around 15 minutes

    I was just about to ask, if you can't just equip both a Hellfire ring and a Leorics signet?
    you can equip both. But I use the Soj for the cold dmg (cull of the weak bonus) and the dmg to elites, which is OP.

    Awesome thanks for posting this it really is what I was what I have been looking for, for about a week or two now.
    Few questions you can maybe answer that is making my brain hurt here.

    1. Why use a leorics ring? Hellfire ring would give more xp AND godly stats. I understand the SOJ but leorics?!

    2. Cull the Weak? Damage slowed enemies for 15% more damage. With the current build I do not see how the enemies would eve get slowed unless I am not able to see your gear slows them?

    If you can let me know on these two questions it would really help me out. I have a little different gear but everything seems to be working out pretty good still. Here is my gear and setup if you, or anyone could check it and make suggestions that would be great!

    http://us.battle.net...2/hero/20714429

    1- TBH I got lazy and just decided to dish out the gold on a leoric's rather then Hellfire. I can already one shot most, so I figured it wouldn't save me THAT much time. I probably will snatch one up asap though!
    2- I am using a cold SOJ and cold dmg slows enemies as long as you are using a physical attack and your weapon does physical damage (which iis why im not using a manticore, as it does poison dmg). Cull of the weak actually works on the FIRST hit with cold dmg, so essentially im doing 15% more dmg.

    Cheers man! glad your enjoying the run!

    Hey guys,

    After nearly a month of constant testing and statistical analysis (I logged all my runs in each specific area in act 3 - exp, time, and elites). I used these stats to build the most effecient run possible. After testing and tweaking the run, I compared it to the all famous Alkaizer run. The outcome was the same every run: Around 20% on average more exp per hour then doing the classic Alkaizer run (Which I also ran through quite thoroughly and in the same fashion). Check out my short video, which I explain the run and share some of my findings. Feedback would be awesome!! Cheers guys!

    ps. 20% of 10 billion xp (Paragon 100) is alot of hours of grinding act 3... Just sayin' -hehe.

    I really like your mustache!!

    Not a big fan of that build tbh. Its just too slow for my taste. I use bears in MP10 and it fells much faster. But your build is really cheap compared to good bearsgear, so i m certain for a lot of people this is really a good build :)

    Thank you sir! It's movember so I have to sport it :P

    It's actually a very fast build if the player using it has high DPS. IMO it's the quickest build for Witch Doctors in mp10. The reason I am so slow in the vid is because I only have 50k dps @ mp10. not a good combo.

    *I do use zombie bears on lower mp levels when I farm for effeciency, as I do find it quicker as well*

    Quote from Kyoob

    I believe acid cloud build and even 2-handed locust swarm build is faster leveling. Because you dont utilize any speed improving skill (spirit walk or horrify:stalker). Also you make a lot of stops to kill monsters, which is contradiction to efficient XP farming.

    If you just wanted to show off your build... well, it's just modified zombie bears build. If there was any other purpose, I missed it.
    not everyone likes playing the exact same build; the exact same way, as every other player... I'm just showing a fun way to play the WD while being efficient as well.
    -and I still believe (from my own experience) that this is one of the fastest farming builds, if not the fastest build out there. with small improvements that increase speed like bigvoodo dance, and blood ritual you can make insane amounts of exp/hour. the reason i don't do this in the build is to offer more survivability for those who can't afford the best gear.
