Here are some of the best things you can do in order to level as fast as possible in Diablo 3, despite what class you happen to be playing.  Remember you don’t have to do all of these things in order to level fast but if you do take all the steps listed here you are almost guaranteed to level way faster than the majority of players playing today.

  1. Buy Gear to Level With:  One of the most important things you can do is to check the Auction House and buy gear to level with.  If you continually invest the time and money to do this you’ll end up always having decent gear on your character and you will have more vitality and will do more damage, therefore increasing the rate by which you level.
  2. Use a Follower:  Be sure to always use a Follower, be sure to use one that compliments whatever class you are playing, and be sure to continually upgrade the gear on your Follower.  If you do these simple things you’ll find that your survive-ability will go up and you will clear through groups of mobs faster and easier than if you were playing alone.
  3. Focus on Vitality:  While all classes have a primary stat they should focus on building, for example a Wizard will focus on Intellect, Vitality is the secondary stat all classes should build.  Be careful not to get too wrapped up into your primary stat, pay attention to your survive-ability.  If you are dying all the time and wasting a lot of time running back and trying the same fights over and over it’s probably a hint that you need to bulk up on your Vitality.
  4. Leave the Game:  If you are stuck on a group of elite mobs and simply can’t get past them and keep dying or are having a really rough time, don’t hesitate to simply leave your game and then resume.  It’s unlikely that when you resume you’ll be faced with the face group because of the random generation so it’s definitely worth it to do this if you are having issues.
  5. Use a Socketed Helm:  Be sure to buy yourself a socketed helm off of the Auction House and place a Ruby in it.  A Ruby in the helm will increase the amount of experience you get per kill so it’s essential that you use one.
