You need to upgrade the staff to nightmarish then hellish and then infernal to access it on inferno. Costs roughly 1.7 mil once you have the normal staff.

Inferno pony land is Act 4.5. So for best results use a DH with as high as possible dps.

I did naked chest runs on a monk to avoid repair costs, but it was mostly a waste of time without high MF.

I've been doing 225% MF runs (only vs blues and chests etc) and I've made about 1m after like an hour and a half of runs. granted, I play DH.

I don't know if inferno pony farm is that awesome for a barb. As a ranged class it's nice because there are no ranged mobs in it and there are lots of corridors of kiting.

You get loot from the next highest loot table as well (Normal gives A1 nightmare, Nightmare gives, A1 hell, hell gives A1 inferno, Inferno gives A3/A4 gear.

By the way,

it's 1 mil for inferno
500k for hell
200k for nightmare
50k for normal (plus 100k for the item off the vendor).

That's 1.85 mil total.



At the moment I'm not sure that Inferno pony is better than say Seigbreaker runs on the time spent vs items gained basis (seigebreaker takes maybe 20-30 minutes? Inferno ponies takes 40-50 minutes)

You get maybe twice as many blues from an inferno pony run, but the yellows is about the same when you consider the fact that Neph Valor gives a guaranteed 2 yellows from bosses (plus whatever else you get from MF). and the fact that you can get a potential 2 or more resplendent chests in seigebreaker depending on your route vs 1 from whimsy.


That may completely change in 1.03 though since they're making it so Neph Valor 5 stack gives a guaranteed 1 yellow from elites and Act3/4 loot has a small chance of dropping in act 1.

Yes, you can go in as many times as you want.

also don't bother unless your class is at least ranged. If you're on act 4 inferno legit with a barb/monk then by all means give it a shot, but the advantage to whimsy is that a ranged class can farm the area easily because the mobs are dumb, easy to kite and they have no bullcrap charge moves or range like Oppressors, Succubi and Subjugators

I think he's talking about buying a cleared inferno pony level.

Yes, but it'll cost you way more than 50k to get into the inferno version. You need the infernal staff, which is like 1.7 million gold total.

Is there a fee to get in each time once you have the upgraded staff?
