    Re: Problem with farming keys

    Personally, I like to save my keyrun complaints until the HR crafting stage, when I can lament the terrible rolls I keep getting.

    I've stopped doing the Warden when I got to 52 keys, because I want to craft all of the machines at once.
    As soon as the patch is live on EU, I'll be farming 50xa1 + 50xa2 keys
    Just of curiosity: What has “the patch” to do with it? Why do you wait with your farming of a1 and a2 keys until patch release?

    With 1.0.8 you get increased monster density in acts 1 & 2 on MP 1 and higher. Meaning farming for keys will also net him XP and potentially loot (in acts 1 & 2), instead of being a complete waste of time if he doesn't find a key.

    I'm hoping I presumed your intentions correctly :-)

    Oh, sure! ... But 1.08 is active in EU allready and there´s nothing wrong with monstes density. He don´t need to wait any longer

    Re: Problem with farming keys

    This is a little off topic but I felt this question isn't enough to make an entire thread of. I am farming for Leoric's signet at the moment(soon found 30 legen but no ring). I play on MP 10 normal. I have never encountered the keywarden in Dahlgur Oasis but I just did now.
    Is his appearance random in normal?

    Strange, since 1.0.8 the keywardens should only occur in Inferno

    Re: Problem with farming keys

    I do think something is weird with Act 1 keyruns. I started a spreadsheet to keep track of this, im currently at 14 runs on mp2 with no key. I keep running the same warden until i get a key, then i move to the next act. well here is my small sheet since i started keeping score. I'm gonna keep going with this to get a better sample size.

    Act 1 Act 2 Act 3
    MP1 10% 12 12 8
    10 2 5
    44 3 6
    MP 2 20% 4 6 7
    12 1 7

    43 failed tries in row on mp1 is impressive! Probability would be 0.9 raised to 44th power. It is very unlikely.


    Playing Blizz games a long time I can say that all of them can be reduced to throwing a dice. Hundreds of thousands people throwing their dices every day hour after hour, year after year.


    It makes possible that even (ALLMOST) impossible events can occur. Today I rescued a guy in a2, oasis - the one who was tied to a pale by imperial guards and leaved to die. He dropped Manticore for me. How likely is it?


    And...I don´t want to hear any “congratulations”! I would loose 114116.2 dps if I used it.
