The tips we've broken down below teach you where to farm, survive longer in battle, and gain levels faster. (Picture: Blizzard)

Leveling Zones in Diablo 2 Resurrected

Although simple, this first step can be the difference between farming for hours and making huge XP gains in a short amount of time. Choosing the right areas to level is vital, and only killing specific enemies, such as Elite monsters in each area, to gain the most amount of XP and not waste your time with small fries. 

Below you can find a list of all the best areas to level in Diablo 2 Ressucted Ladder Season 4. We've also noted if there are specific enemies, you should farm in each area while ignoring the rest, and most importantly, be sure you've progressed through the questline and reached level 5 before you start farming these areas.

  • Stoney Fields (Defeat Rakanishu)
  • Tristram (Two Champion Groups near Decard Cains Cage)
  • Forgotten Tower (Clear Each floor's Eltire Group)
  • All Tombs at the end of Act II (Do all tombs seven tombs, and focus on Death Beetles if spotted)
  • Secret Cow Farming Level Using Wirt's Leg and Tome of Town Portal (Defeat Hell Bovine) 
  • Baal's Throneroom (Farm the route until the boss fights, and for more XP, do the run on Nightmare difficulty)
  • Chaos Sanctuary (Defeat Elites on the way to Diablo)

Leveling Gear in Diablo 2 Resurrected

Having the right gear is almost as important as knowing where to farm, as they can boost your XP gains, give you an edge in battle and make your farming much more efficient. Below are some of the best gear items to use to level up fast in Diablo 2 Resurrected.

Specific gear will help you get more XP but also allow you to survive in battle while farming. (Picture: YouTube / Rhykker)
  • Tome of Town Portal 
  • Tome of Identify (Identify which items to keep and which to throw away while in battle)
  • Health, Mana, And Stamina Potions
  • The staff of Teleportation (USeul for mobility when farming)
  • Wand of Lower Resist (Helps break down monster Immunities)

Many of these items cost quite a fair amount of gold to purchase and repairing them can also be pricey. So to aid in this, be sure to pick up valuable sets at your farm and sell them for a profit. You can also use cheaper items, then buff them using the Horadric cube to create more powerful and valuable items to sell, making you more gold. 

The last gear-related tip is to be on the lookout for specific sets that drop in the world during battle; examples of this include the following: 

  • Death's Disguise (Gloves, Sash) - Useful for attacking and negating movement debuffs.
  • Angelic Arainment (Amulet, Ring) - Great for attack-based builds and can be used for most farming needs. 
  • Arctic Gear (Full Set) - Well-rounded for attack, defense, and resistance, and is extremely useful for long farming routes. 
  • Sigon's Set (Full Set) - Well-rounded for attack, defense, and resistance, and is extremely useful for long farming routes but does have high strength requirements. 
  • Cow Kings Leathers (Full Set) - Great for attack builds and for quick farming of weaker Elites.

Leveling Runewords and Magic in Diablo 2 Resurrected

Finally, we have used Runewords to buff your gear and items. Runewords can only be equipped on nonmagical items and, once done, can yield a powerful magical item that can be extremely valuable for selling or efficient for combat and farming. You can use a large variety of Runewords, so try ones that give you boosts for what you need in battle, be it movement speed, resistances, or buffs, or create them as needed for selling; some examples are listed below.

  • Spirit (Tal Rune, Thul Rune, Ort Rune, Amn Rune) - All skills increase by 2, faster movement, increase elemental damage, increase Mana and Vitality.
