Whimsyshire Inferno Farming
Whimsyshire is the cow level of Diablo 3. Although here you will not be fighting cows you will be fighting unicorns, teddy bears and flowers. The reason for this is because many of the fans called Diablo 3 too bright and happy early on in development, which I would say is the reason this level was created. In order to get to Whimsyshire players will need the Staff of Herding which requires you to run around and collect a bunch of different materials throughout the world. You will need a Black Mushroom, Leoric's Shinbone, Wirt's Bell, Liquid Rainbow and the Gibbering Gemstone. Take all of these items to the Blacksmith and he will combine them all for you into the Staff of Herding!
In order to get to Whimsyshire players will need to join an Act 1 game and take The Old Ruins Waypoint. From here you will want to backtrack away from where Adria's hut is and back towards Tristram. Where you will be going is a little bit difficult to explain in text and much easier in video format so click here to watch a video of my Whimsyshire run and how I got there.
Once in Whimsyshire you will be opening up every Happy Cloud that you see, smashing all of the Lovely Presents, stomping all of the Mushrooms and obliterating all of the unicorns and teddy bears. That's right, look at all of those well used verbs! Each run of Whimsyshire will take on average 10 to 13 minutes depending on how many named mobs you take out and how fast you're moving. If you stop frequently to check what loot you got or to identify a rare the run will take longer than it would have otherwise.
In this video above me and a friend clear all of the white mobs out and don't touch any of the chests. Then we come back in with full Magic Find and open them all. After doing this half a dozen or so times I didn't see any difference with triple the Magic Find as I would normally see with only 75% Magic Find. In otherwords, you can do it however you want, grab all the chests as you go or all at once towards the end. I personally am no longer carrying around a MF set, I'll just look for some of it on my gear when the time comes.
The best thing about farming Whimsyshire Inferno is the fact that you can get some really good weapons that you will be able to sell on the Auction House. If you are not used to farming later Inferno acts it is important that you check all of the blue weapons you come across here as one of them could be a potential goldmine on the Auction House. Any weapons with 700 or more DPS (1h) and 1k or more DPS (2h) will most likely be able to sell on the AH.
Aside from checking the blue items you know the drill with how things work with gear. If you're having trouble in anyway at all trying to figure out what is worth selling I strongly recommend you check out my How to determine what to sell on the Auction House video guide. It will be very helpful in helping you determine what is pure vendor trash and what is worth keeping to sell on the Auction House.
