Diablo 3: Key Farming and Incoming MP nerf

Last night I had a good time trying to farm up some Infernal Machine keys with Bearness. We played on MP 4, and generally did not have too many problems....well besides the Act 3 key master. That guy is a fucking asshole.

Edit: Fucking Asshole has been nerfed. He no longer cast illusions, and the frozen body attack hits for less damage. Woohoo!

I got the key from Act 1 and Act 2, but will have to continue working on 3 (and then whatever I need from Act 4).

The good news is that they are nerfing the damage done by monsters in MP1-10. It becomes much more pronounced at the higher levels, so here is a chart of how it is going to look.

•MP1: 109.60% (down from 114%)
•MP2: 120.12% (down from 130%)
•MP3: 131.65% (down from 148%)
•MP4: 144.29% (down from 169%)
•MP5: 158.14% (down from 193%)
•MP6: 173.32% (down from 220%)
•MP7: 189.96% (down from 250%)
•MP8: 208.20% (down from 285%)
•MP9: 228.18% (down from 325%)
•MP10: 250.09% (down from 371%)

This essentially means that if you were doing MP7 before, you can probably safely do MP 10 (although it would probably be slow with the hitpoints each mob has.

This patch has made D3 so much better at max level. I did not find any legendaries last night (Bearness found two Wizard Strength pieces lol), but I feel like every thing I log on, there is a chance I find something amazing.

I also got my Barbarian to Paragon 16 last night. Moving on up.....slowly but surely.

STR Wiz hats FTW!

Where did you get the info about Act 3 warden nerf? I couldn't find anything.

Got it off of reddit which linked back to battle.net I believe.

His abilities do less damage, the slow is not as bad, and he will no spawn multiple versions of himself or have the fast affix.
