The loot is f* s*ck, so I just stick with Act 1, just because I can do it faster

Location: I farm Act 2 Desolate Sands. I like this area because it spawns 3 caves no matter what, several events to keep things fresh (plus adds to achievements) and if I have the time I will do a full terminus run and finish with taking out Kulle.
Yield: I pick up everything that is blue and yellow I don't pay attention to lvl (guess I'm weird)
Class: Barb
Dps: 23k
Base MF: 55%
Do you gearswap or dps in your mf: I don't gear swap while playing but I can survive Act 2 with my MF gear.

Location: I farm the general Act I route, except if I'm feeling lucky with the run I'll add warden and butcher also.

Location: Act 1. Seems the most efficient to me because I can't farm Act 3 in MF gear and my DPS is only 30k in my best gear.
Yield: Only yellow 63 weapons and 61+ yellow armor. Sometimes I pick up sub-61 items if Act 1 run yielded very few rares. The main thing is I never stop until I'm done to maintain efficiency.
Class: Monk
Dps: 20k
Base MF: 200%
Do you gearswap or dps in your mf: DPS in gear, only switch to 600 LOH amulet if my health is low

Act 2 - Start on the Kulle quest - get 5 stacks then kill him and Belial. If I feel like it I'll do desolate sand after - usually 10 - 15 packs there including the caves

I tried farming act 3 with my DH, but my 76k damage (without ss) just isn't enough to 1-shot elites.
So I'm stuck with act 1 :P
Base MF is 86% and yes I do gearswap.

I can see most of you farm Act 2 @@
My gear is tank enough for Act 2, but I don't like farming there.
Just like Diablo 2, I don't like play Act 2 as well. I don't why~

I make good amount of gold salvaging items near the end of Act 2 before the fight with Balil.

Location: Act 2. Start in Black Canyon Mines and pick up 2-3 stacks, go to Road to Alcarnus for guaranteed 1-2 and high chance of goblin, then Kulle for free loots. If I'm in the mood I'll go to the Assassin's Vault in Desolate Sands, tons of rares there.
Yield: I pick up everything so I end up going back a bunch of times. Maybe 3-4 for the full run.
Class: Demon Hunter, tank build
Dps: 65k with sharpshooter and 15% base crit.
Base MF: I think it's around 170.
Do you gearswap or dps in your mf: DPS in MF gear. Or MF in dps gear?

Location: Currently - act 1, imprison quest. Start quest head to cementary and hit the caves. Then head to halls of agony and kill butcher. Then head to northern lands hoping for watch tower as I have good luck there. That is my core run path having never seen offical farming routes.
Yield: blues and yellows
Class: monk
Dps: 20k (unbuffed)
Base MF: rough 100
Do you gearswap or dps in your mf: not any more. Swapping drops my dps to about 12k. Just bought some dos MF gear

Location: Act 1 Warden. I hop to the some favorite zones (Northern Highlands, Graveyard, Leoric's Manor, Festering Woods) for the spawned caves/etc and quickly noticed elite/champion packs, I'll usually tack on a Warden and butcher run after
Yield: Picking up 61+ blues that I salvage with extreme prejudice, I pick up all yellows, stashing 61+ yellows until the end of the run I'll usually have about 2/3 of a stash tab full of unidentified items.
Class: Monk
DPS: 12k
Base MF: 110% with templar, without NV.
Do you gearswap: My gearset is my mf set, I have some gear I'll carry for if a champion pack seems like they'll be particularly troublesome, (get more loh for less dps, or something along those lines)

Location: Looks like vault runs in act 2 are the way to go. I've been doing them myself for weeks. I suspect there have been recent stealth buffs to the other caves in desolate sands - 3-4 elites per cave, chance of getting a goblin per level. So start with running around desolate sands, find caves, get 5 stacks, do vault. Nerf to sewers (no more goblin) makes it meh, and i finish off in black mines and alcernus.
Yield: 5+ 63's per run
Class: WW Barb / Bulldozer Barb
DPS: 36-46k
Base MF: 105%
Gearswap: Yes, i gearswap into 300% MF before elite/goblin kill. Also swap in stormshield on particularly hard elites.
Run Time - approx 30-35 mins per run with about 20-25 elites and 2 goblins on avg.

I am wondering if you notice that they have buff the elites in Act2 as they hit harder than usual . Maybe it's all in my head . Still easy thou and it's not really affecting my runs .
One thing's for sure , the drop rate has changed and it's so blardy obvious .

Latest upgrade due to items .

Location: I switch between Act 2 Goblins and Act 3 (Clear most areas, then finish with SB).
Yield: Been getting better drops from Gobs than in Act 3 recently. I've been able to get a few (crappy) legendaries/set from Gobs and have only ever gotten some sweet Jewelry plans from Act 3.
Class: Disintegrate build for Gobs & CM/WW Wiz for Act 3.
Dps: 46k for Gobs; 37k for Act 3
