Did another video since Blizzard has already nerfed the Mira runs to a few million XP total (was an incredible 9 million XP per minute). This time we'll be visiting the Festering Woods... a few dozen times.
When the Diablo 3 RMAH and GAH is gone, where will you turn for Fiery Brimstones and crafting? Salvaging legendaries... which is going to take a really long time.
I just bought 10,000 for around 30 million gold. I highly recommend that you do the same, along with any other crafting reagents you don't feel like grinding later on. Interestingly enough, you cannot trade "common materials" at the moment. I'm referring to the new, white crafting item that drops.
See youtube video I just made describing how to get 9 million XP every 2 minutes on Torment VI. Bringing a low level character along will allow you to get them at least one level every single time! Just reset the game and get your 9 million XP over and over again. I was able to occasionally get nice loot as well; in 10 runs I had one legendary. Not bad for simultaneously powerleveling someone from level 50 to 60 in 12 minutes!
EDIT: You can also go to the Cathedral level 3 waypoint to get a free chest every time, as well as continue to the skeleton king's lair for a bunch of easy jars.
You can use the auction house to get a complete set of +Magic Find, +Gold Find, and +Pickup Radius gear for your character. I highly recommend getting a socketed helm with a max topaz gem as well. You can easily cover the maximum +300% magic find if you use the helm and a high magic find amulet. Set bonuses can also help you and the set gear could keep your surivability high enough to get around the skeletal archers without dying.
This route was used by botters when the game first came out and it can serve you much the same way it helped them... lots of gold and items from the containers and occasional chest. If you use high pickup radius and some sort of constant aoe (think wizards and monks) then you can do this run over and over again for lots of gold.
Remember to buy your gear now before the auction house goes away forever!
If you were following my gold guide all along then you would already have a magic find and gold find set for farming low level items. Since the auction house is going away, you won't have a need for farming such items to sell to players ever again. At least there is something for you to do with your set in the form of these runs!
Personally, I had 2 legendaries drop in 2 runs, which is like a legendary per minute and a half. I am going to go grab a socketed helm and continue doing this until I'm full of high level legendaries for the reaper of souls expansion.
I've been playing a lot of Diablo 3 while I wait for Reaper of Souls to come out. Here is a list of what I'm doing (and what you should too).
1. Making Real Money on the RMAH
Come on, this was a given. The auction house is going away and right now gold is super expensive! The price is almost $3 per 50 million and so I'm hustling on both auction houses to turn a profit. What I've seen so far is that the low level stuff for leveling is doing phenominally well. Also the level 60 high stat rares for gloves, shoulders, rings and amulets. We're talking just straight up vitality, primary stat, and any damage affixes possible for the item (crit chance and damage for rings/amulets/gloves). People are gearing out their characters quickly for the expansion and paying good amounts of gold/money to do so.
Use my guide and apply it to mid level items as well as max level rares. The legendary blueprint is still king on the guide, despite its age.
2. Get Your Hell Fire Rings.
Do the current end game content over and over again until you have tons of hell fire rings. You especially want a strength one for the Crusader hero that's coming with the Reaper of Souls expansion.
3. Hit Paragon Level 100
If you get well geared and equip a hell fire ring, you should be able to do monster power 5-7 quickly and efficiently to level up to 100 paragon. For each character you max out, Blizzard is going to reward you with additional paragon levels in the expansion. The conversion is small, in favor of the new paragon levels, but worth doing while you farm for items.
I've decided that no matter what I will update the guide to include farming strategies. Depending on what happens, I will make the forum open to everyone for free. So please, just buy the guide and don't buy any more forum time.
