Farming Techniques

Just thought i'd post some good farming Techniques

Merciless Ledge is a great place to farm for uniques generally get a unique every 2-3 hours
Difficulty: Easy
Time: about 5-10 mins

Killing Alira Repeatedly (Merciless)
generally gets one unique every 1-2 hours
Difficulty: Moderate
Time: 1 min or less

Merciless Vaal Runs
Generally gets a unique every hour most of the time more
Difficulty: Moderate
Time: 10-15 mins

Normal Vaal Runs
For 1 player it gives 2-3 uniques an hour
for 2 player it gave 7-8 uniques in an hour
for 5 players it gave 15-18 uniques in about 40 minutes
Time: 3-5 mins

(The key to this is having a designated runner with phaserun willing to portal everyone else in)
(these bootshelp alot for that purpose)


Had a pretty good time and picked up alot of goodies to play around with.

Edit: Also in that last one its nice to use the recipe for creating 2 chaos orbs from selling a set of un id'd rare items as it generally doesent take long to make a set. added value is always a plus. if your looking for alteration orbs from the rares be sure to have atleast 500 scrolls of wisdom if planning to run with a buddy :) take care

You forgot to mention Fellshrine Ruins, it's basically the Ledge but for act 2, with a bunch of slow, not-dangerous skeletons and zombies. And don't forget that the rate at which someone gets uniques is based on their personal IIQ and IIR on gear, =).
yes try to get the highest IIR/IIQ person to get the finishing blow on vaal. mine was 142 iiq and 241 IIR for these runs :)

personally i dont like felshrine for farming very much i thinks its a bit to large to farm effectively. you always need to maximize your clearing time. killing alira 60 times an hour is only effective because 95% of the time is spent actually killing alira lol.

The 1 chaos orb from the identified set is way, way better IMO. No way I'm going to vendor a set of unidentified jewelry and a belt just for an extra chaos orb. You seem to value uniques far too highly.


ever seen an AMAZING ring/belt/ammy at level 28 maximum mods? i have not :(.

Basically your goal is to get the uniques that are worth a large amount of currency oddly enough these will mostly be your unique jewelry and belts which ALL can currently be found in normal vaal ^_^

Hehe yeah I didn't see that your last example was normal vaal.

yes, pretty nice for being level 28, a huge help for going against merveil cruel. You probably won't find many that are good for a level 60+, but I'd sure pay a chaos, or at least an alch, for that ~50 cold resist and 10 other resists at level 28.


are also decent for early damage. And you can find double/triple mf rings/amulets/belts at that level too.

Item values are relative, and an orb is worth as much to a level 28 toon as a level 70 one. Selling level 28 items in cruel will get a lot better results than selling level 28 items in merciless, =)

You shall deplete the soil you greedy bastard.
You flavor of greed will get mf nerfed, and then what the fuck will you do, besides cry about it.
