I might spend the remaining 7 hours in AS. Only other good option is CS, but like I said, I'm getting tired of that one with my Blizz Sorc, and I (hopefully) will be doing plenty of it with my Hammerdin soon(ish).
Only other good option I see for areas is Pit with Necro or Javazon. I couldn't get the hang of it with my Necro, and for Javazon ...
... I don't have Griffon's. Once I have that one, I plan to do a lot of tournaments like this and overall testing with Javazon, Lightning Sorc, Nova Sorc, ...Also such a setup is not too hard to build, only somewhat rare parts are Griffon's and Enigma.
I have a NW map layout, which might indeed be better for those two parts.I skipped the end platform because it involves more back-tracking than the middle corridor, and in my case also killing from the top which is not ideal for seeing drops (resulting in more teleports necessary potentially). That's also the reason why I check the middle corridor on my way back, so I can kill mobs there from bottom right side. Maybe I should roll a map with the map layout in NW direction and check both though.
Ok, nice. Thanks. Time to finally find that SoJ .
One thing I forgot to mention is that @NanoMist was right (of course, what did you expect? ) when it comes to the other branches of AS: they aren't worth it, because there are too many gaps and other stuff which prevent good spawns and smooth running.
Btw, if we are talking high density areas, would Flayer Jungle also maybe be a good area? It's packed to the brim with Flayers and Soul Killers, so ... Obviously not as good as AS and CS, but maybe comparable with Pits?
