Simply put, I already knew I was vastly undergeared, but I decided to try it anyway. Less than 25k dps, less than 250 all resistances, 26k HP, trying to Blizzard/Venom Hydra kite, just to see if I could do it (didn't expect to kill a single enemy, honestly) and I actually survived! (Not!)
I did, until about 3 minutes into it, when I found a boss (yellow). Little stupid Tinkleroots, but I killed the boss in about 9 or 10 minutes. Arcane, Frozen, Illusionist, Molten. Fine, no problem, just took a year and a day, due to low dps, and dying 943574309576340523405 times, as I slowly killed off the minions, and eventually the yellow boss itself. (Templar has 100k hp and dies in seconds) I laugh at my Templars pitiful attempts to tank. Fine, fine, fine, it dies, I get a crap rare.
I go on for another 5 minutes, then ... doom. I find a Waller, Teleporter, Plagued, Shielding Unicorn boss, and this one is also yellow. I immediately die. Should have probably changed my build and tried again, even though it would have meant losing my NV stack, but my head and neck hurts from killing the Twinkleroot boss. Didn't think this would cause physical pain!
Discuss: Whimsyshire in Inferno. Who has tried it, who has dominated it, etc, etc, etc.
So far I've found 2x 1000+ DPS bows from Inferno Pony, the staff has paid for itself at least. If I could be bothered to spam it over and over I'm sure I'd find something truly special but I really CBA.
There is a little trick to killing the unicorns, there is a rock that they seem to not be able to pass. It actually looks like you're there in the screenshot. Anyways if you herd them to that rock and keep your distance they just stand there and wait to be killed
Doesn't seem to work on any other than the unicorns though, also was a while ago I noticed it so might have been fixed.
Hmm, I find it easier and more lucrative to farm whimsyshire than it is to do siegebreaker runs. I find I die far more often on elites in a3, and I get less loot. Get 5 easy stacks from scrub elites in the Cemetary crypts, and then go through ponyland.
I'll clear out a section of mobs, then put on full MF and open all the clouds/chests/mushrooms. I usually get about 3-4 rares from just the environment and than many more from the elites and pinata.
Some elites have to be skipped... like for me it's teleporter/fire chains, or anything with invulnerable minions. There was a waller/horde/mortar that I should have skipped but instead took something like 20 minutes to clear... that was definitely not worth it.
Anyway... when the next patch comes out it'll be all about efficiency. Which act/zone can you kill elites most efficiently? Can you do act2 more than 2x as fast as act 3/4? Can you do act 1 more than 4 times as act 3/4? Is it better for you to stack to 5 easy stacks and then do pony runs? Etc etc.
Ponyland can still take me upwards of an hour to clear (including time it takes to get the initial 5 stacks), but I get so much more loot from the environment and everything than I ever was from act 3 I think for me it was more worth it.
But I know I clear stuff a lot slower than other people I see around :/
I have been farming ponyland for a week at least with my wizzard. Doing 5-10 runs per day until i get totally bored. You need 40k HP and around 4-5k armor and 300 ress. in order for the energy shield - force armor to work well there. Also, your dps is slightly low for there, I would try some more act 2 farming if i were u.
I started ponyland at 40k dps last week and now i am at 77k with a 2hander and only 1 item with 15% AS. As you understand, that area is indeed profitable if you can farming fast enough and then equip full MF gear and farm the clouds. I haven't found any good weapons as other mention here, but some valuable gear in general. Act 3 has far superior drops till now but this place is just rediculusly easy. Right now, I get 5 NV stacks in Festering woods & their caves in under 10mins, then it takes me 20minutes top to clear pony level, with 40k dps it was taking me 30-4-minutes at least.
Two things that make ponyland the easiest place to farm for a wizzard & DH:
1) ALL mobs are melee, you wont get hit if u are a good player - ofc mortar, teleporter and stuff like that is always annoying.
2) As the person above (WDC) posted, there is a spot on the map where unicorns cannot fit and get stuck, you can stack them there and also kite more elites (flowers, bears) behind them and aoe them all down. If you sit at the edge of the screen the mobs will never teleport or use mortar on u. When looking at the mini-map, this spot has a cat's face near it.
EDIT 1: the cat-spot is on the screenshot u posted!
EDIT 2: you can try to farm this place with a friend that plays tank. He can kite all the mobs at the cat-spot easily and then you just have to go on the other side and kill them. You get double the loot with half the effort
