Diablo 3 Quickest Way to Level

Here are some tips for leveling from 1 to 60 as fast as possible.

  1. Buy Gear:  If you haven’t been buying gear off of the Auction House as you level you’ll probably shake your head and sigh once you see how many upgrades in gear are waiting for you there and how cheap they are.  When I was leveling my first character I didn’t visit the Auction House until I was almost level 30 and the amount by which I upgraded all of my gear was insane.  My damage and Vitality were so significantly increased that when I went back out and played again it was 10x easier and faster.  Don’t under estimate the power of Auction House upgrades.
  2. Configure Yourself to Survive:  Yes, your primary base stat is important, for example, if you are a Wizard you are going to want to stack up on Intellect in order to do damage, but you can’t neglect to stack up on Vitality too if you want to survive.  If you think you can get away with just loading up damage increasing stats for your character you will probably have a tough time once it comes to Hell and Inferno, and even Nightmare.  Remember, damage is good but if you are getting killed by mobs or bosses in one hit and can’t survive long enough to cause damage then all the + damage stats in the world will do you no good.  Another thing to do in terms of helping yourself survive and therefore level faster is to get a socketed weapon and place an Amethyst in it.  An Amethyst in your weapon will give you +Life per hit and will increase your chances of surviving.  Remember, key to leveling fast is surviving, because if you are dying and running back all the time you are wasting time and not leveling as fast as you could be.
  3. Put a Ruby in Your Helm:  The ultimate top easiest thing you can do for leveling fast is to simply get a helm with a socket in it and place the best Ruby you can get into it.  Depending upon the quality of Ruby you can get you can substantially increase the amount of experience you get per kill.  Again, this is so easy to do and can save you hours on your way to 60.
