Path of Exile Fast Leveling Ideas

Leveling up in an online RPG like Path of Exile is something that most players put a lot of effort in since that takes up the majority of the gameplay. As you develop your character, you then acquire better Path of Exile items that then goes into making the leveling process faster and easier. With Path of Exile being an online RPG that caters to the more serious gamer, there is definitely an optimized way of leveling up in this game. While there is no real perfect way to do it, or at least one that is documented and objectively considered to be the best, but at least you can follow some ideas on how to do so.

The very first step is to determine what build you want for your character to minimize instances of regretting misguided choices during the leveling process. Being able to plan the endgame for your character in advance is something that will keep you focused and determined to play it out all the way through. It's a general rule of thumb to prioritize survivability first, so get as many of the life nodes as your planned build will allow as early as possible. You should then aim to acquire some decent gear so that you can level up faster, focusing on weapons first to kill monsters as quickly as possible. You should also use the appropriate potions according to the current state of your character, so get better flasks once you gain more health than what your current potion can fill up.

It's not a very good use of your time to grind in Acts 1 and 2 since you'd want to reach Act 3 and the higher difficulty levels as soon as you can so you can level up faster. You'll be grinding in Act 3, mostly at The Docks until you reach around level 35. You then finish normal mode and move on to Cruel and Merciless, wherein you can grind it out and reach the higher levels. During that process though, do remember to skip rare or champion monsters that take too long to kill since they won't be worth your time in proportion to how much experience points you'll get from them. It's better to go through mob after mob of normal enemies in order to hoard the experience points.

A good tip for those who are starting a new character is to get waypoints from friends in order to save time in leveling. You would want to reach the ideal locations for leveling as quickly as possible, so this is where having friends in the game who would be willing to help you can be very convenient. Remember that this is an MMO, wherein social interaction is actually important and having friends or guildmates who would assist you in your quest for reaching your character's peak level is considered routine. You can also ask more experienced players on tips to level faster, especially those who are knowledgeable about your current character class.

You should then take your stats into consideration, especially your resistances, when choosing locations to farm experience points in. For instance, if you have a good amount of fire resistance, then choose a location where most monsters deal fire damage since you'll be able to survive better there than in a place where enemies deal lightning damage and such. Soon enough, you can get a good sense of how to go about this process and enjoy leveling up your character.
