He also did Inferno Whymsire with 400+ MF and did not get anything other than blue gear from the clouds (chests) and nothing but crappy rares from the elite packs.

You're much better off just farming for gold. The best way to do this is go get to 60, get some decent cheap gear, and then farm Whymshire on Hell with 5 stacks of Nephalem Valor. This gives you 15% MF and Gold Find per buff, max of 5. You get 1 stack per elite pack or rare (blue or yellow names). With a 5 stack, you're also guaranteed to get to get extra loot from bosses, so farming Butcher on Hell pretty good, too.

You can find decent gear for sub 100k most of the time, you just have to shop around. Until you really want to start progressing through Act 2 Inferno, you can get away with 25-30k health and minimal resistances if you can kite well enough. Once you get good enough gear, you can farm Inferno Butcher with 5 stacks of NV to try and farm gear instead of gold.

Is this Athene the same as the WoW player Athene? Guy was freaking crazy, inspired me to solo doomwalker on my DK before they got nerfed

Yup, same one. He currently holds all Inferno boss speed kill records. www.athenelive.com is his livecast. He gets up to 290k damage fully buffed. His Butcher speed kill is in 3 seconds!

I'm curious how many legendaries people have found so far. If you can, list your level (or levels) to give an idea of how much you've played. If you've played the over 60 stuff, maybe list playtime.

I'm at 100 hours on my level 60, a level 45, a few level 20's and a level 9.

I've found 7 legendaries from a level 8 item to a recent level 51. Just looking for a comparison. My MF hasn't always been 149%, but it's always been a focus.

Edit: I found 3 legendaries last night.

I've only found 2 legendaries so far. A really cheap sword that went for 15k, and 50+ bracers that I got 400k for. I never run any magic find gear specifically, but I think some of my gear has it anyway and I'm at around 35%. Not sure what my played time is, but pretty high. I have a 60 Witch Doctor, 23 Barbarian, and 16 Demon Hunter. 90% of my time played will be on my WD. Even though they aren't as power as DH and Wizards, I still prefer their play style and abilities.

I saw a video of a good gold farming spot last night. Act I, really easy. You get a check point right next to the Dank Cellar and just run it over and over. I made 850k last night in a combined 2 1/2 hours of farming. I used Gold Find gear and had 160% increased gold. Average run nets about 4-5k and only takes 30-45 seconds.

Unfortunately, the Dank Cellar isn't a 100% spawn. I'm running it right now. it's up maybe 50% of the time.

I've found 5 now, MF% averaging about 90%, and that is on a lvl 60 with about 50hours played

I prefer just farming Whymshire on hell difficulty... i know it may end up in less items/gold overall but its more fun and less of a tedious "job" than doing a 40 second run over and over again

I'm still in Act 1 hell and undergeared so progress is slow. I'm bulding up my armor pieces slowly.

I hit 60, and had some purchased AH gear. I'm a DH, and got Dex/MF/All Resist gear...

Unlike my previous stuff, most of this stuff I got didn't have sockets, as it was lower cost gear from the AH.

I ended up with no Vitality, really. Ended up gemming for vitality just to get it to 250ish (about 10k hp). That lost me about 60 dex points, and I'm not sure the increase in HP will be worth it.

Eventually, I want my gear to have Dex/Vit/MF & All Resist built in, with other bonus stuff if possible.

At least I have my All resist up to something like 140-190 depending on the element. I haven't played long enough to see how much of a difference that is making against elite mobs like mortars or whatever...hoping it cuts back on the damage I take.

No, but the check point is so close that it's still worth it. I averaged 5500 gold per minute even with 4-5 no cellar streaks.

There's also a great way to farm jars in the Royal Crypts of Act I as a Wizard. They have an AOE ice ability that damages everything around them continually, breaking the jars they run by. With a 20+ gold/health pick up range, you can just keep the AOE skill rolling and run around breaking the jars. At peak efficiency, it can net 800k per hour. My wife averaged 350k per hour last night with only 145% gold find. She's up to 188% this morning and trying to make her run faster.

I did that same run with my Witch Doctor but my skills aren't as efficient as hers to break the jars. I have to stop and cast fire bomb with flash fire a few times to make all the jars break. The cellar was more efficient for me since I can kill the mini boss in there very quickly with zombie bears.

Blacksmith is near useless, jewelcrafting is not necessary until you get to 60 and you're trying to make gems higher than the max tier that drop. I'd use your gold for gear until you hit max level and start inferno, and even then only start leveling your jewel crafting once you find a really good piece to put a high tier gem in it.

First thing I did was max out my storage space. I've spent money raising all my crafting to level 7 (no tomes of secrecy yet)...but I really wasn't spending money at all on my character.

That's why my first character (L45 Barb) is way undergeared. I used the money I got raising my DH to 60 for AH items and also maxxing my crafting as much as I could.

It is nice to round up my gems to the highest level, and I'll be going through 4 more characters getting to 60...so I'll have tons of gems from low to high. Anything gem-wise just adds to my total gem collection.

Anyone notice that they are getting lag spikes? It never happened before, and i have a top of the line alienware computer so no worries on specs, but randomly starting 2 days ago i started getting huge lag spikes where if i run into any monsters or use any spells, the screen pretty much switches to slow motion as if its like 1 frame per second

Anyone else getting this at all?
