Here, made a quick video of an extremely easy, albeit tedious way to farm up magical items. This trick existed in the beta (I've even reported it back then) but it still works today and in any difficulty. Of course, most lucrative in Inferno.
Bear in mind, you can't have obtained Leoric's Crown yet. If you get his crown, you'll have to change your quest to before you got it. Otherwise, just make sure you get the checkpoint and then just log out and head upstairs for an easy farm.

Oh pitiful shadow lost in the darkness,
Bringing torment and pain to others.
Your damned soul wallowing in your sin.
Perhaps... it is time to die.
just wondering how lucrative it is without 5 stacks of NVB? i mean the video shows you getting 1 blue every time. The only plus i can see is that there's almost no risk of death and incurring repair bills.
