Along the same vein as my Efficient XP & Materials Gathering guide, I keep getting questions from newer players that have just completed the Campaign and are at a loss on how to get started in the Diablo 3 endgame.
The Google Spreadsheet features per-class recommendations for:
- Stat priorities
- Heirloom gear (with cost calculator)
for the fastest leveling experience. I’ve compiled this information into one convenient location from popular websites (looking at you icy-veins), forum posts and my own experience in the world. You can also use the heirloom cost calculator by making a copy of the spreadsheet into your own google account and modifying specific cells in the tabs to get total summary of costs in Gold, Honor, Seals and Tickets.
Go check the ofBeaton’s Alt Guide page for links to the newest version.
It adds new WoW 6.2 items: Intellect Plate, Rings and Trinkets. As well it adds the Holy tree to Paladins.
One question that often comes up for Diablo 3 is what is the most efficient method for gathering materials for the in-game crafting system?
Another discussion often revolves around what are the advantages of the various post-level 70 end-game adventure mode activities.
The following article will address these questions as well as provide the data analysis underlying its conclusions.
Many of these will seem like common sense or what players are already doing, however a quick look in-game shows T10 the Rift & Bounty difficulty of choice (they can’t all be missing a RRoG can they?) and Speed Greater Rift groups are routinely doing 10 minute XP runs, refusing to drop down lower for faster runs. I wanted to know if they knew something I didn’t, and if there was a difference in efficiency, what was it? For these players, the data section and the analysis I have provided will be the most helpful.
I’ve drawn on community experience and knowledge, spending days piecing together information from many different sources, trialling it out myself in my three vaults to see what worked.
I don’t claim that this is the only way to succeed, indeed there are many different ways, but I believe that this is the safest and one of the most efficient. I hope you find it useful, and feel free to contact me and let me know how your vault is going!
