comment Extra experience from equipment
You cannot roll XP % bonuses on any random attributes on items. That stat only comes from a ruby in a helm socket.

Yes, stacks with whatever you're wearing (But remember MF is shared between party members). In inferno we tend to wear all of our damage/life/mitigation/best gear to fight the packs, then when the last monster is at ~10% we equip all our MF gear and finish him off. Been pretty effective so far (especially when combined with NV).

Also... in my 4-player group we pretty much have to have a barb for tanking or we'll fail miserably. <3 barbs.

Sorry! Nephalem valor is a buff that you receive when you hit the level cap (60). Every champion or elite pack you kill gives you one stack (to a maximum of 5 stacks). The buff's capabilities are twofold: Each stack provides a 15% bonus to magic find (75% at 5 stacks), and when you're at 5 stacks bosses (skelly king, act bosses, etc) will drop improved loot (I always get at least 2 rares, sometimes 3, as well as 5-8 blues). So it's not quite true to say bosses won't drop good loot; they most certainly will. If you respec or leave the game you lose all stacks.

You may want to rethink this strategy when you get level 60. You essentially lose 75% magic find (due to nephalem valor falling off) if you change specs between monster packs or bosses. A solid build is one that can handle an array of situations without having to be re-built everytime.

comment Diablo 3 Solo vs Public parties
You have to be pretty close to the kill to get the experience for it, and at that point you were more than likely part of the kill or at least assisting in the kills of other monsters in the same pack. If you can't play with a group of people you know I'd suggest solo play... There's no telling what public players might do.

comment What effect causes a green vortex on the ground?
@Codemonkey until they stack multiple piles on top of each other... It starts to really hurt in Inferno.
