I found this quick article online today that talks about Pools of Experience, and their use.

Diablo 3: How to farm Experience Pools & Locations - Troupster.com

For those that are not too familiar with their use outside of leveling, this article touches on some good points.

For high level GRs, most groups will look for pools, or spawn cow levels once they clear GR85s or higher. This is a great tool to help maximize Paragon points. I have come across players that were using "Cow Sticks" simply as a way to gather crafting mats. Far more valuable for Paragon points.

Anyway, enjoy the read. Its fast, and doesn't drill down on a lot of its points, but does have some good initial info.

For those wanting just a bit more it never hurts to check Act 1 (Cemetary, Leorics, and the Start area of S. Highlands) when youre just doing some GR's..that 25% is that, its extra to help farm out some paragon.....But if youre not doing it every time on GR75+ in solo or groups....youre missing out on some large pools of xp.

That's very useful...I wasn't sure how many times they'd stack; good to know 10 is the number. Anytime I would pass one, running bounties or rifts, I would be sure to stop to use it. I may have to do a pool run before running GRs from now on. Thanks for sharing!

Personally I'll bang out Pools for 75+ because it makes a difference even there. That 2 or 3 billion starts to eat away at your xp points rather quickly. The only drawback is if you're doing speedruns the time taken hunting them down may not always be worth the time.

Which is why people usually do "cow sticks" or bovine bardiches - they can have 2 per, which means 1 for each run. Since barbs get these like candy, they will typically have them available.
