Blizzard clearly stated that Diablo 3 will be different from its predecessor. In Diablo 2 players were farming the same Boss over and over again but this mechanic has changed. As per the developer’s official announcement, if they notice that one Boss is farmed excessively by players, its loot table will be nerved.
What Should The Players Do? Farm Champions And Rare Monsters!
In the normal difficulty these monsters do not seem too ferocious. They look like normal minions but they have various affixes that correlate with the extra abilities they have. Once you reach Inferno, these monsters will be part of your gold and gear farming routine. These monsters can drop anything starting with gray and white items to magic, rare, set and even legendary.
Why You Should Farm These Monsters:
For fame and fortune of course but there is more to it. After you reach level 60, killing such packs grants the player with the Nepilim Valor buff. This buff can stack up to five times meaning after you kill five packs you can no longer increase this buff. Each stack increases the player’s chance to get better loot and more gold from all sources including chests, monsters, barrels and everything in between that can drop anything of value. In order to keep this buff active, the player must not change his skills or runes in any way. As long as his build remains intact, the buff remains active.
The farming routine you might choose is useless if you do not know how to deal with these packs of mobs and once you get to level 60, they will become your main target. All of them have various affixes that require a certain monster level but be warned as starting with the Hell difficulty things get really hectic. Monster level allows them to have any combination of affixes. Additionally, the number of abilities that these monsters receive increases as well. However there is no such thing as an unbeatable pack.
