Hey D3 community,
I've been lurking for a while, decided to finally join...
When socketing a ruby on a helm, you get bonus XP on all kills. I've got perfect rubies socketed in the helms of both my softcore Nightmare characters (DH and Wiz). I haven't however seen any mention of anyone using rubies to gain bonus XP in this way. Am I alone here or is this a useful strategy for leveling faster to Lvl 60? I play single player and am doing full clears of the maps.
Other option I suppose is pop in an emerald (gold find for the AH) or topaz (magic find...necessary given AH and given it's just Nightmare?). My HP are enough.
