This question is now obselete due to patch 2.0.1 as NV has been removed from the game.

I am trying to quickly build up 5 stacks of Nephalem Valor before tackling the Ponies. Which area in act 1 gives the highest chances of spawning multiple uniques and champions?

Nephalem Valor no longer exists in the game. You cannot farm it at all, no matter where you go.


I would say the Cemetery of the Forsaken.

With a chance for a unique to spawn, plus three very small dungeons, two of which are one level only with exit teleporters, you should be able to find 5 stacks in a very short amount of time.


I recommend the Cemetery of the Forsaken and the Warrior's Rest and Crypt of the Ancients (the two caves/crypts you need to enter before you can enter the drowned temple).

The latter two only if you haven't got 5 stacks from the cemetery alone yet.


Another very good area would be Festering woods. The area is quite small and usualy has 3 elite groups by itself. There also are 2 very short dungeons with 1 elite group in each.

A lot faster than cemetery of the forsaken since the area is much, much smaller. However, the trash deals more dmg, so you have to have a bit better gear.

  • Agree that Festering Woods is also a good choice (potentially, 2 elite mobs + last stand + dungeons could give 5 stacks there itself) - more damage shouldn't be a problem if he is doing Inferno ponies.
