After playing several classes and leveling to 60 many times now I find that doing the following things really helps to get to 60 fast.  Keep in mind that yes, while you want to get to Inferno fast, you really need to focus on getting to 60 fast because it will help you get through all the content faster.  So while defeating Inferno may be your primary objective, make getting 60 fast the way you get set to beat Inferno.  Here we go:

  1. Get a Socketed Helm and Ruby:  Most of my other suggestions for leveling fast have to do with acts and mobs but this first tip relates to gear.  This is one of the most vital things you can to in order to level fast and once you do it, it’s done, and you are good to go, it’s not a strategy or playstyle you need to follow…simple.  Be sure to visit the Auction House and buy a socketed helm and place a Ruby of the highest quality you can get and place it into the socket on the helm.  This is going to provide you with more experience per kill, which is going to make leveling fast…and in some cases, very fast.  DO NOT skip doing this, it will only result in you spending more hours leveling to 60.
  2. Don’t Waste Time Trying to Kill Mobs You Can’t Kill:  If you’ve run into a pack of elite mobs that you can’t kill or know you will spend a lot of time trying to kill, skip them.  It’s simply not worth the time to face groups like these when it’s easy to get around having to fight them.  Remember as long as you have reached a checkpoint or have the waypoint near where you need to be you can quit and resume the game and you won’t face the same mob groups.
  3. Repeat Nightmare Act I:  Take advantage of the fact that you can run through Act I again.  Doing this will help you level faster since you’ll become more powerful as you level and will be able to handle the harder higher level mobs better once you progress more through Nightmare.
  4. Repeat Hell Act I:  Same goes for Hell, repeat Act I at least until you are level 55 and can buy a new level 55 weapon off of the Auction House.  Not only will the additional levels you’ll be gaining help you level through Hell faster, but the weapon upgrade you will get at 55 will provide you with significantly more damage.
  5. Repeat Hell Act II:  I know this all might be sounding boring, repeating all these acts, but it will save you a lot of leveling time.  So for this last tip, I strongly recommend that you repeat Hell Act II until you are level 60.  Yep, you heard me right.  Stay in Act II Hell until you are level 60.  Once you hit 60 hit up the Auction House for a new weapon and other equipment.  The upgrades you’ll be able to buy will help you dominate the final acts and help you prepare for Inferno.
