What is the general consensus on this? Jack up MP as far as you can and still kill with reasonable speed?

Keep it low or off to steamroll the content faster?

If you use MP you'll level faster but still have to play through the first three difficulties.

If you don't use it you'll appear to level slower...but you still have to play through all three difficulties.

I’ve talked with players in several different Diablo III communities about how they level new characters and found that most of them tend to prefer one of two tactics. 1) For a number of players, Monster Power 10 seems to be the way to go when leveling by just playing through the game, but (as you pointed out) that leads to a much slower pace than farming key areas. 2) There’re also players who farm specific high-density locations, but they tend to tone down Monster Power to whatever they can handle while still one-shotting most of the monsters. I’m sure plenty of players do a little bit of both depending on the situation, too.

I prefer a hybrid of the two, but will lean towards faster leveling depending on the last time I leveled the class I'm playing.
