Gold Farming

Hey guys! Here you can see an overview of everything that’s important about Gold Find in Diablo 3.

Purpose

  • Rerolling items can become very expensive
  • Empower every Greater Rift

Note: Usually everyone has more than enough gold, but under some specific circumstances it’s possible to run out of gold: Theese are usually either the start of a season, when you empower every GR, or if you want to reroll an item with an extremely rare roll.

Methods

  1. do Nephalem Rifts with Boon of the Hoarder (“long-term solution”)
  2. farm Vaults (Kanai’s Cube Puzzle Ring recipe) – 100 – 500 mio gold / vault (T13; amount depends on gold find bonus on items)

Especially at the start of the season you won’t have enough gold to empower every single GR for aditional Gem upgrades. I highly recommend to do a few vaults. You should do the vaults on T12/13 for a much higher gold droprate. It’s okay to change to a lower difficulty for the boss fight. You can increase the gold droprate if you equip items with gold find %. You can just cube a RORG and quip Gold Skin etc.. Don’t forget to socket a green gem into your helmet and equip/cube leorics crown. On top of itemization, you can put paragon points into gold find! It’s possible to farm several 100 millions (up to about 500 mio) each vault which will result in 1 billion gold in 5 minutes average. If you’re a group, 2-3 members can just equip gold find items in every slot and the other one, who is wearing his normal items, clears the vault. If you have more than enought rings, you should only equip a few GF items (green gem, para, leorics crown, gold skin) and focus on clearspeed (this way will result in more loot).

Formula

Gold Find = ( (1 + DifficultyBonus/100) * (1 + GearAndParaAndPartyBonus/100) – 1 ) * 100

Examples

Difficulty Bonus Gold Find
T1 (300%) 50% Para + 100% Gear + 30% Party GF = ( (1+300/100) * (1+180/100) -1 ) * 100 = 1020
T6 (1600%) 50% Para + 100% Gear + 30% Party GF = ( (1+1600/100) * (1+180/100) -1 ) * 100 = 4660
T6 (1600%) 50% Para + 200% Gear + 30% Party GF = ( (1+1600/100) * (1+280/100) -1 ) * 100 = 6360
T6 (1600%) 50% Para + 400% Gear + 30% Party GF = ( (1+1600/100) * (1+480/100) -1 ) * 100 = 9760
T10 (2900%) 50% Para + 100% Gear + 30% Party GF = ( (1+2900/100) * (1+180/100) -1 ) * 100 = 8300
T10 (2900%) 50% Para + 200% Gear + 30% Party GF = ( (1+2900/100) * (1+280/100) -1 ) * 100 = 11300
T10 (2900%) 50% Para + 400% Gear + 30% Party GF = ( (1+2900/100) * (1+480/100) -1 ) * 100 = 17300
T13 (4500%) 50% Para + 100% Gear + 30% Party GF = ( (1+4500/100) * (1+180/100) -1 ) * 100 = 12780
T13 (4500%) 50% Para + 200% Gear + 30% Party GF = ( (1+4500/100) * (1+280/100) -1 ) * 100 = 17380
T13 (4500%) 50% Para + 400% Gear + 30% Party GF = ( (1+4500/100) * (1+480/100) -1 ) * 100 = 26580
T13 (4500%) 50% Para + 709% Gear + 30% Party GF = ( (1+4500/100) * (1+789/100) -1 ) * 100 = 40794

A T13 4 player vault without any gold find bonus on your items grants slightly more than 100 mio gold; with gold find bonus on every item you will find about 500 mio gold.

You can also keep a 2nd set of your items with GF rolls in your stash and switch whenever you do vaults.
