1-70 Monk Leveling Guide – Diablo 3

1-70 Monk Leveling Guide - Diablo 3While this Diablo 3 1-70 Monk Leveling Guide was made for monks specifically (abilities/skills), you may be able to apply the knowledge within for other classes as well.

I've run three Level 1-70 characters in Diablo III: Reaper of Souls using this method and a couple using older approaches (HoA/Bounties). I think this is the best approach for minimizing the time involved in getting a fresh season character going.

Introduction to the 1-70 Monk Leveling Guide

Patch 2.3 introduces a few mechanics that influence how to efficiently make a new character for Season 4. The first major change is that regular Nephalem Rifts are available for “free” (i.e. no fragment requirements) and immediately at Level 1. Nephalem Rifts can have nice mob density and have an inherent boost to legendary drops, on all difficulty levels and at all levels. This opens up a potentially new 1-70 Monk Leveling pathway, one that has been explored by myself and others repeatedly on the PTR. The second major change is the introduction of Kanai’s Cube, which has broad implications for gameplay, builds, and strategy in Diablo 3. What is relevant to a freshly started Season 4 character is the mechanic allowing Legendary drops to be absorbed by the cube and their passive effects used by the character. Specifically, there is now value to legendaries that are below Level 70 in that they can be consumed by the cube.
