    My favorite feature has to be 4 person local co-op. Diablo 3 is fun, but as Blizzard has stated many times, multiplayer is how it's meant to be played. And when I can reach over and smack you for stealing my loots, see you die and your reaction, and generally interact, it's just that much better.

    I love the idea of being able to sit on the couch (way more comfy) with my wife and two boys and spend some good quality time together slaying demons on my Xbox 360.

    Here's why. http://www.reddit.co..._for_spectrums/

    At the end of the night, I'll also give away 50m for each Spectrum/Hamburger over 600 DPS!

    posted a message on Farming Whimsyshire for Fun and Profit
    With all the talk from everyone about your current gear being worthless, I'm curious what will NOT be worthless come RoS.

    I've decided that anything designed to be used for lower levels will still be useful. Primarily the best in slot weapons.

    So I'm farming Whimsyshire until expansion.

    Here's my guide, if you're so inclined, and if you find a purple in inferno and invite me, there's a guaranteed 5m in it for you.


    Why Farm Whimsyshire?

    Diablo is a loot based game. The entire goal of the game, and half of the enjoyment, comes from getting good loot to drop from monsters.

    Considering that a large part of the game is farming items to upgrade your characters, shouldn’t you be playing in an area where all good items can drop? (Except low level items such as Leorics Signet and Buriza Do and the like.) Whimsyshire is the only area with that distinction.

    I submit that Whimsyshire runs are currently the most effective for both, since you can find any legendary in the game here, including the only two specifically farmable items in the game. Those two items are the Spectrum and the Horadric Hamburger.

    But why do I want Hamburgers and Spectrums?

    Hamburgers and Spectrums are both formidable and breathtaking! In addition to slaying the fallen hordes with a rainbow sword or a nutritious and delicious ground round, they have a level requirement of 30, and DPS of 700+. This makes these weapons hands down the best weapon in the game for any level 30 character, assuming you rolled high DPS.

    The Spectrum only has one random affix roll, the Hamburger has two. One could correctly argue that the meatier of the two is best in slot. A high DPS Hamburger with a socket is the best roll you can get.

    I’m convinced, help me find them!

    The drop rates are roughly a 5% chance from a Pinata (Hamburger) and a 10% chance for a Spectrum from any unique (read: purple named) mob. It can be a long time before you find one, but certainly can be rewarding.

    Here are a few helpful hints.

    The Spectrum will NOT drop from any other mob in Whimsyshire other than the ones named below.

    Creampuff
    Killaire (Team Unicorn)
    Maisie the Daisy
    Maulin Sorely (Team Unicorn)
    Midnight Sparkle
    Miss Hell (Team Unicorn)
    Nightmarity
    R'Lyeh (Team Unicorn)
    Tubbers

    The Hamburger will ONLY drop from the Pinata.

    You can get them from anywhere from 0-5 stacks. The Magic Find from Nephalem Valor is sure to increase your chances, but is not necessary.

    My personal preference, with no hard data to back it up, is that the bonus drop from a higher Monster Power level is the biggest factor that affects your drops. However, I have found 5 Spectrums off of an MP0 Team Unicorn, so don’t feel like playing higher Monster Power levels is required.

    Whatever key you have bound to close all windows is the quickest way to pass the dialog from the Ghost of Cow King. Spam it until you’re in!

    I believe those who find the most Spectrums and Hamburgers are those who see the most purple mobs and piñatas, regardless of stacks and MP levels. Tempest Rush Monks and WW Barbs tend to be the quickest in terms of runs. WW Barbs tend to be more efficient killing on the way through at higher MP levels.

    My average run is about 4 minutes, and that should be your benchmark. Run on a MP that lets you do this.

    Where

    Whimsyshire, between New Tristram and the Old Ruins Waypoint

    Method

    I'm running through with my WW Barb at MP7, killing all trash mobs, skipping most Champion packs, and killing rare packs. Rare packs take about 10-15 seconds to kill, Champions closer to 30-40 seconds. I like to keep my runs under 5 minutes.

    With uptime of Sprint and Wrath of the Berserker nearly unlimited, it makes for a quick run.

    The play goes like this: Run. Stop in big group. Rend. Run again. Kill blue elites, kill pinata, try to find the purple uniques.
    Start run over.

    What You Need

    The Staff of Herding
    Plan: Staff of Herding - Drops randomly off Izual in Normal Difficulty
    50,000 gold
    Wirt's Bell – Purchase from Squirt the Peddler in Act 2 for 100,000 gold.
    Liquid Rainbow – Found in Dahlgur Oasis in the dungeon Mysterious Cave Level 1 out of the Mysterious Chest
    Gibbering Gemstone – Found in Fields of Slaughter from the dungeon Caverns of Frost, Chiltara drops it on Level 2
    Leoric's Shinbone – Found in the fireplace in Leoric's Manor
    Black Mushroom – Found on the floor in Cathedral Level 1

    Once you’ve assembled it, go to the last quest in Act 4 on Nightmare, Hell and Inferno to buy the plans for each difficulty. He spawns to the right of the blacksmith. Then you can upgrade to the Infernal staff, so you can run Whimsyshire in Inferno, where the high DPS Spectrums and Hamburgers drop.
    Bonus: If you are farming by yourself, usually when I'm streaming, I'll pay 5m if you invite me to your game. Add Pauper#1231 to your friends list, or stop by the stream to add an extra 5m each time you find one in inferno!

    I also keep a list of others who want to pay for Whimsy, so if you want to be added, send me a twitch message and I'll add you.
