I farm act one a lot with my friends, act 2 is slow going and takes forever to kill all the mobs that run, but my question is, do you guys get a lot more cash from doing Butcher runs than Skeleton king runs?
We usually go back a quest or two so we get 5 stacks, lots of drops and gold pick ups. Obviously the Butcher runs take a little longer, and we have some issues with the dps being able to dodge his moves, but down him in 1-2 attempts.
Obviously there's better drops from butcher, but I always feel like I'm getting gold super fast in the skeleton king runs. We've also run from quest 3 through the whole act, that took like 3 hours though but yielded 450k, including normal AH sales (a couple of ok yellows that go for 20-50k a pop..)
I'm just wondering, barring very lucky drops, what's the most efficient way to farm gold in act 1? Like I said before, we don't really have any issues in clearing groups or bosses and everything drops fast (I'm a tank monk and I have two dps I run with that are up over 46k dmg now.), I'm just curious if anyone's noticed if Butcher run's yield considerably more gold... Thanks in advance!
Also, I'm not interested in any cheese method for farming gold, we like killing shit and getting drops we can sell or even possibly use.
