    You get nowhere?
    Baalruns and CS runs are the fastest, but that doesn't mean they are fast :kiss:

    Get an Anni for the +to exp, it does make a difference.

    Oh, and stop dying.

    Otherwise, just kill kill kill, don't leave any monster behind.

    Leveling in Uber Tristram will be the best place if you only care about leveling.

    Well uber tristram leveling isn't *that* easy, as far as I know.
    You need certain aura gear iirc.
    I prefer the old fashion way :laughing:

    The gmerc bug has been fixed, so needs manual work to benefit from Ãœber Meph's minions. AFAIK they are just L83 or so which means it takes ages to gain XP from them from the upper 80s on.

    IIRC, my sorc needed a few hundreds of Tunnel+Pindle+Eldritch runs to level up from 92 to 93 (which I did for MF, not for leveling). Killing Baal minions (and Baal himself from L93 on) is the fastest way if you can get to the throne room quickly. If you can't, do CS runs.

    Clearing Lvl 85 Areas in 8-players games by focusing on big groups of monsters or champions is a very efficient way too :thumbsup: !

    You can also boost your XP by using an Annihilus, an Ondal's Wisdom and an XP shrine :grin:.

    lvl88+ chaos and baal are by far the most effective.

    never tried uber lvling tho, i doubt it's any good for high 80's chars.

    95+ pure baal as you will basically get 0 expeirence anywhere else apart from act 5.

    Personally I find it no problem for leveing at 80+.
    At least my smiter leveled from half way to 92 to 92 and it takes something like 1 and a 1/2 hours.

    Chaos and Baal's minions are only level 85 areas. Baal ends up being the only profitable part of Baal runs for level 94's+.

    I think Uber Trist is a higher level area, but it's a better leveling ground due to the infinite spawning monsters as long as one of the ubers is alive.

    Meh, just see IntelligentX's guide.

    I must disagree with this. a friend and I run chaos baal at lvl 98 and get a rather nice amount of exp this way. specialy if at the end we top2 at baal. no its not in the millions. But compared to the 30k you otherwise would get by doing baal runs alone its awesome :thumbsup:

    Intelligentx guide should get u lvling at high 80s.

    If you dont like that way do some work and chaos or baal run hard.
    A 10xp anni will definately help also.

    Getting levels fast is pretty easy, if you know what you are doing.

    The best locations:
    Lvl 1-60 : Hell CS-Runs
    Lvl 60 : Ancients Hell
    Lvl 61-92 : Baalruns without Baal ( except there is a java, that kills him in less than 10 seconds )
    Lvl 93-95 : Baalruns with Baal
    Lvl 96+ : Only three monsters give you useful XP now : Baal, Diablo and Nihlathak. Nihlathak is too risky for his CE and the snakes arround, so it is Baal and Dia. In a good organized run with one Hammerdin clearing CS and the others doing the Baalrun, you will get both in 3 minutes.

    Some things to remember for best XP:
    -use 8 player games
    -DON´T DIE !!!
    -get an Anni with 10% XP
    -try to use Ondals ( not all players are happy with this )
    -at 96+ get XP-Shrines

    You can get a char from Lvl 1 to lvl 90 in less than 8 hours, the rest of the way takes pretty long though.

    Uber trist

    i have just made a level 1 paladin, g-rushed to hell act 5, from the g-rushing i gained one level

    so here are my uber trist stats

    start level: 2
    end level: 86
    number of uber trist games: 2
    total amount of time leveling: 37 minutes

    breaks have to be taken or the game will crash, thats why i had to join another ut game



    p.s. i would like to add that my m8 got his hammerdin to level 91, in 3 hours 41 minutes

    all uber tristing.

    although there is a much better and safer way than that guild, we use the wall at the enterance to UT to protect the leachers

    much easier with the leachers are L90+ and dying = 1/4 exp lost

    Re: fastest place to level?

    Sorry to resurrect this thread, but is Pit worth running past 80? I know that it is easy, level 85, and has a few champion packs, but I wasn't sure if it was worth it in later levels compared to Baal runs.
