I was wondering, is it better to farm as high monster power I can in hell (approx. 7 or 8, maybe 9) or go for inferno with no monster power? I'm playing a barb with crappy gear, havent played since june.
the difference between MP1 Inferno and MP0 Inferno is neglegable.
Farm MP1 inferno for higher MF, and guranteed drops of abover Ilevel 58. till you're ready to move up an MP.
However items that drop can still suck balls.
As a barb I found that once I had about 300-400 resists and 40k dps with some lifesteal and life on hit, MP1 was easy. Grab a 2H with high damage, 5%+ life steal, +1200 LOH, crit damage if you can. Then get a belt with 3% life steal and try this build out. http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculato...VRP!YZe!cZbZcZ The only thing it lacks is some mobility, but keeping up 5 stacks of frenzy for faster attack speed and more damage and keeping rend up on everything and using overpower and revenge whenever available will keep your defense, damage, and healing up as much as possible. Try to double stack physical resistance with resist all when you can, as the 20% reduced damage from non-physical from superstition passive is worth quite a bit of resistance for everything non-physical.

So, related question. What do you think would be the most efficient for gear-farming:
Act 1, MP 1, with zero MF gear (69% through paragon levels)
Act 3 0 MP, probably the same gear
Act 1, MP 0, jacked up MF gear, but lower damage
Pretty sure mp0 has 60-63 monsters and mp1 is all 63 monsters. They also said stats scale with monster level and I presume you get higher ilvl items from higher lvl monsters. Not 100% sure.
As someone with fairly good gear, I find farming mp1 far better than doing like mp7. The MF/GF just doesn't seem worth it when I can do like 4 runs vs. 1 run for only a 150% mf/gf increase.
When I get people back into the game, I give them about 1m, that's enough to buy an act 3 MP1 set as a barbarian. I would shoot for act 3 mp1 as quickly as you can.

Load up on max MF gear and do Nightmare on MP10. I seriously sell stuff in the level 20-35 range for 200-500k all day long. I guess people seem to be returning and have tons of gold to reroll new alts and twink them out. Just sold a pair of level 33 legs for 1 mil. Do that for a week then buy better gear.
