Diablo 3 Wizard Leveling Build

IMPORTANT: If you're looking to make a lot of gold, you can make thousands easily by reading my favorite gold guide.

Here is a leveling build designed to get you through Normal difficulty and through at least the beginning parts of Nightmare difficulty.  You won’t have all of these skills when you start but as you pick each one up you can slowly integrate into this build.

When leveling any character in Diablo 3 I always recommend that you check out the Auction House for  gear.  You can find a lot of really cheap gear for sale that will help you level a lot faster.  If you are too lazy to or don’t want to visit the Auction House you can check vendors for upgrades even.  If you have another character or a character with Blacksmithing you can also check to see what upgrades you can make from that.

Another good thing to do is to be sure to get a Ruby and socket your helm with it.  This will increase the amount of experience you gain while leveling.

Finally, for your follower it’s very helpful to choose a Templar for heals.
