    Re: 1-60 HC solo speedlevel in under 7 hours

    Sorry if this is a silly question, but I searched around and couldn't find an answer.

    What do you mean by this:

    since we will reset instances often, the cooldowns will be ready every time! What does this mean? A WOTB/EQ combo takes up 2 slots and isn’t very efficient for normal grinding with 2 min cooldowns, but what if we reset the cooldown every 1 min instead?
    The only instance resetting I'm aware of happens when you leave and create a new game... but from the context you are talking about something else entirely.

    EDIT: Do you mean resetting by leaving your game? Cause if so you can still only reset at checkpoints if you're running solo...

    Yes, thats what he means. For example, you will run to the Crypt of the Ancients and kill everything in there, then town portal and quit the game. When you click 'resume quest' you will be dropped off at the entrance of the Crypt of the Ancients ready to do battle against a horde of enemies locked in a small area.

    His point is that normally when slaying hordes of easy to kill enemies you wouldn't want a long cooldown skill taking up a skill slot since they would be on cooldown for a majority of the action. However, since you will be entering/leaving games faster than your skill cools down you will actually be using those skills much more often than the tooltip may lead you to believe. An example again - if you pop WotB when you begin the Crypt of the Ancients you may very well spend 25-50% of the entire instance in Berzerk mode at which point you would leave the game, resume, and immediately have WotB available again. Consider if you were simply playing through the game and hitting wrath immediately as it became available, you would only be in wrath mode for 12.5% of your playtime.

    You're missing a vital piece of info. Get 3 items of the new Cain set and you get 30% bonus xp on top of your ruby helm.

    Yep, this is a great tactic

    I know it's softcore, but I wanted to thank Alexander for his guide and show what I was able to pull off.

    I delved into softcore to work on achievements that would be too expensive (teach 12 jeweler designs and 100 blacksmith plans) or too hard (kill cydea/butcher/belial/azmodan/diablo naked) in HC. Cain's Gloves/Boots/Helm with a Star Ruby did wonders. WD is amazing for leveling because of Acid Cloud.

    Tip is to go archon with teleport as a wizard, if you got good enough gear, you can have archon for almost an entire round (tip to start it up when you meet 10+ mobs)


    Also want to thank you for the guide! Had already played for like 6 hours to 35 or so but it went very fast from there!

    Thanks a lot for the guide! It has been a great help in terms of farming places (the gear stuff are easily figured out. You just have to switch gear once you feel the mobs do not die with 1-2 hits).

    Also checkpoints can be very important! For example VoA and CoA checkpoints can save you loads of time!

    Happy HC gaming!

    Sorry, I've personally never found the pieces to the staff, the mushroom is insanely rare!
    Wtf, I have 4 mushrooms in HC and not a single lvl 60 yet.

    Ah, and nice guide, been a bit hesitant to play my lvl 51 WD but after reading this I think it will be easier.
