Farming keys can be a grind, we have been checking out other methods of farming keys in act 1.
Commonly most would:
- Obtain 5 stack (Festering Woods, Leorics Manor & Cemetery of the Forsaken)
- Then go on to locate the warden
- Then kill the warden
The video above shows an alternative way of getting the stacks of valor whilst looking for the key warden - " Basically killing two birds with one stone"
Here are some things you can find in the fields of misery which give a stack of valor. These can all be gained whilst locating the warden
- The Secluded Grove will appear as a upside U shape of the map. Inside you will find a resplendent chest
- The Forlorn Farm is home to a dead beast. Clicking the beast will spawn a unique mob. After defeating the mob you will a farmer who will reward you with a resplendent chest.
- The Scavengers Den has 2 levels. Level 1 will hold from 1-3 to elites. Level 2 can have up to 2 elites and a resplendent chest.
- The Forsaken Grounds is a mini event clear all four nest, defeat the unique mob and talk to the farmer
All of these are randomly generated each game. I would advise starting on the monster power you farm keys on then go to the Fields of misery first. Try and locate the warden whilst doing this look out for the events above as you will be gaining stacks quickly whilst locating.
I myself benifited greatly from this method. If you do fine the warden right away simply teleport and get your stacks as you normally would
Try it out and let me know how you get on. We hope it save you time farm keys

Hey guys how it going.
So we all know leveling paragon is a grind and it does take away hours of our lives.
I've been testing a few different combinations with my gear and trying out different methods for gaining the most xp quickly
I'm sure so of you will know that the Hellfire ring and Stone of Jordan combo works really nicely and has a massive effect of xp gained without loosing time per run from the loss of DPS
Here are just a few area's i tested it shows my normal run xp and the run with the stone of jordan and hellfire ring combo.
Fields of slaughter
Average time per run : 2 minutes 20 seconds
Average XP per run: 1.2 million
"SOJ & Hellfire Combo"
Average time per run : 2 minutes 35 seconds
Average XP per run: 2 million
Overall a looss 15 seconds but a massive gain on 800k XP
Keep Depths Level 2
Average time per run : 4 minutes
Average XP per run: 2.5 million
"SOJ & Hellfire Combo"
Average time per run : 4 minutes 20 seconds
Average XP per run: 3.8 million
Overall a loss 20 seconds but a massive gain on 1.3 million XP per run
Arreat Crater Level 2
Average time per run : 3 minutes 30 seconds
Average XP per run: 2.7 million
"SOJ & Hellfire Combo"
Average time per run : 4 minutes 50 seconds
Average XP per run: 4.1 million
Overall a loss 20 seconds but a massive gain on 1.4 million XP per run
The videos show this really well so feel free to have a look.
We hope this has helped save anyone a bit of time
Thanks for looking.

This just a small guide on how to level any class to level 60 in under 4 hours in patch 1.0.5.
The video shows how to level quickly and what items to use at what levels. We did not use the hellfire ring in this video however it would increase the XP you gain and narrow down the time spent in game.
Time spent can easily be cut down to anything under 3 hours. We spent alot of game time testing area's
Very simple method all you need is a high level friend. You high level friend runs you through the keep depths level 3 to 2 on the highest difficulty you can do for your level on monster power level 10.
Normal - takes around 1 hour 10 mins
From 1-25 on MP10
Nightmare - takes around 50 mins
From level 26-50 on MP10
Hell - takes around 50 mins
From level 51-60 on MP10
Gear check list:
Level 1 - Hellfire ring offers 35% bonus XP.
5% Movement speed boots.
Level 10 - 9% Movement speed boots.
Level 14 - Leorics signet offers between 20-30% bonus XP.
Level 15 - Helmets with sockets,highest ruby gem you can afford.
Level 21 - Born set gives +20 XP along with XP on the items themselves
Level 23 - Cains robe set will give you 30% bonus XP for wearing three items.
Alot more items are covered if the video above free feel to view it if you would like some more information.

Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionHey guys Luke here from Cuckoogaming
I decided to make this thread to ask a question:To most it might be a silly one.
Is Diablo 3 a gear dependant game or does it actually take a bit of skill?
What are your guys opinions surely there is some degree of skill needed?
We did test this ourselfs with a challenge as you will see in the video below.This is only episode one of four.

Hey guys Luke here from CuckooGaming and welcome to my thread,Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
This is a thread about the tempest rush build for monks, i'm personally not sure if people are sunig this but i found out about it just two days ago.
The build itselfs relies on spirit regen, the build is used to move from packs on mobs quickly which would therefore speed up farming runs along with xp runs.
Here is the build
"Tempest Rush Build"
- For this build we do not use seize the initiative so therefore high armour is recommend
- Spirit regen can be found on "monk fist weapons", "helmets" and another good item in SOJ (stone of jordan)
- Inna's also gives 0.33 regen when you have a 3 set.
The video is a basic guide no how it works. Play with it test it out see if it works for you. Its really effective for moving from one area to another incredibly quickly
I would personally use this in ACT 3.

Hey guys Luke here from CuckooGaming and welcome to my Road to Level 100 Paragon thread.
It's a simple post about what im doing and a post for seeking adivce from others and helping others too.
Gear, Stats and Build
So my gear is okay not the best by any means but it work for ACT 3
here are just some parts and why i use them
Stone of Jordan - Used mainly when i encounter range based elites to kill them quickly as they can take time to hunt down.
Blackthorns - Not normally used by mainly but a great 2 set bonus that give 100 vitality along will life regen of the belt and the chest piece with high resistances and sockets.
Inna's - Standart for Monk alot of people use the 3 set i could only afford the two i went with the head peice and the legs,
Normal monk build which im sure alot of you guys use.
Shows all the stats i have from dps to crit hit damage and chance.
Full info here: - Shows everything
Im currently leveling in ACT 3 inferno adn here's my route, i start at arreat crater level 2 clear and then go to level 1, clear level 1 and then go to the Barracks level 3 and go on to level 1 and finish with the Stonefort
For me i find this route the best not for Xp per hour but just for the mobs in general.
If you have any advice that will help me let em know below
Follower - Enchantress, i dont normally even use one but its been recommend for solo play
Im currently level 25 (when thread was posted) with 580 hours played. This is our benchmark to see how lnog it takes to gain levels and progress.
Level 26 - 17/09/2012
Level 100 - ??/??/2012
Level 26 -
Level 27 -
Level 28 -
