Hello SPF community. I've been wondering what the best /players # setting is for most efficient item gathering at places like Chaos Sanctuary, The Pit, and Travincal (council). For a while, I've been running these locations in /players 3 because I'm not yet max level and figured it would increase my rate of exp gain (and item acquisition) because some monster types may otherwise be dying inefficiently easily ("overkilled") if I were doing /players 1. But lately I've become less concerned with exp gain. I'm just really interested in getting items (rare uniques and high runes) as efficiently as possible. I know unique/superunique monsters' item droprates are unaffected by /players setting, but the councilors' certainly are. And while my primary goal is to kill uniques in places like CS and pit and get rare unique items off them (particularly ones I don't yet have), I also kill many other creatures within their vicinity--especially their minions--for the added chance of other items like high runes. Rather than hoping to determine in some purely objective manner the most efficient way of doing things, I guess what I'm really asking for is to hear the opinions and experiences of any veterans of the community here. Maybe I shouldn't even bother with killing minions? I could be doing something completely wrong. I'm really interested in knowing. I'm a hammerdin with Enigma, 125 FCR, and 350+ MF. I play in 1.14d, which is mechanically the same as 1.13d as far as I can tell. Thank you for your patience.
