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
That's definitely how it works right now, but keep in mind that the NV bonus to exp mechanics has been reworked in 1.0.8; it is now multiplicative instead of simply additive.
What this means is that (with all the standard bonuses of hellfire on self and follower and 31% ruby in helm), on MP10 running on NV0 vs NV5 would mean a difference of 683% vs 1195%.. almost double.
So I guess what this means (roughly speaking) is that if more than half the time of your run is spent getting that 5 NV, it's not worth it, but if it's say a quarter of your time, then that's time well spent - you don't really need elite gear for this.
Also the new NV mechanics result in running MP6 at full NV (679%) being comparable to running MP10 with none, so something to consider if you're not breezing through MP10 yet
Edit: The formula used is the one here:
