Hey what’s up guys and welcome indeed to the season 20 leveling and a starter guide to get you towards the endgame as fast as possible so just as a heads up I’ll provide everything that I’m mentioning down below in the description box as well as aim deep in common but we’re to be using a lot of different websites for sources to make your progression a little bit easier and kind of track our progress when we first off showing off the Diablo Seasons quick season start tracker we’ll be following this pretty much throughout its entirety but there are a few optimization and other paths that you can indeed take but for the most part it is relatively efficient so we’re going to be using it so you can kind of have this side by side so you can open this up in another tab if you wish to go ahead and do so to make things a little bit easier and you can go ahead and actually click on certain aspects of it and you can kind of see what you’ve completed so it’s really easy for that so first off create a new seasonal character that should be pretty self-explanatory make a new character and make sure you go and click on this season box and then what you want to do is complete the challenge rift and open up the reward back so let me go ahead and show you guys that so what you’re gonna actually need to do is you’re going to go into game settings over here and select challenge rifts if you guys have not done the challenge rift before and you don’t know what the heck it is I have a video showing off what the first challenge rift is going to be for season 20 and that will also be pinned in the comment section below and basically it’s just a riff that you’re gonna go ahead and complete and then you’re gonna be getting a bunch of bounty rewards so when you complete this you’ll be getting a bag and you’re gonna open it up and these are the things that you’re going to be getting out of your bag and I’ll show you guys that in a second here but that’s the next thing that you want to go ahead and do after creating a seasonal character but we’re gonna go ahead and hop right into the game and we want to make sure adventure mode is selected if you guys do not have this mode unlocked what you do have to do is complete the entire campaign first so if you haven’t done that and you want like a full walkthrough I have a video down below and I’ll post that as well for an entire completion of the entire campaign but we’re gonna go ahead and select adventure mode go ahead and select master difficulty and you can always lower the difficulty but it’s more difficult to make me difficulty higher but just go ahead select a master difficulty and hop right into adventure mode with your newly created seasonal character so I’m gonna go ahead and just click start and hop right in so the next thing that is on the list is to actually go ahead and equip some pet the wings in portrait don’t really matter the pet does matter the reason why the pet does matter is because it does pick up gold and it’s kind of nice just to go ahead and have that ability again just have gold so go ahead and cook whatever pet you want it doesn’t really matter other than the cosmetic it’s just there to pick up the gold just go ahead and select whatever a pet that you want to go ahead and have now I mentioned that we got to go ahead and open up that bounty bag and I’ve already completed the challenge rift so I’m gonna go ahead and show you guys what that looks like so over on the bottom left you’ll see this little mailbox we’re going to go ahead and click on that and it’s going to go ahead and say the challenge rift for work we’re gonna go ahead and clean that into our inventory and then we’re going to go ahead and right click on it and it will go ahead and give us all of these materials as well as a bunch of gold to get us really started along with some blood shards to go ahead and have our disposal to go ahead and use at kadala.
Early on but certain classes will have certain levels that we want to go ahead and actually reach before spending our blood shards is actually pretty important now going into the next step is to hire the Templar take his weapon and give him the Enchantress weapon so let’s go ahead and show how that works really quick because he actually has a little bit more damage so we’ll go ahead and hire the Templar fee and then we’ll go ahead and go through the Templar we’re going to take his weapon and his shield if your class can’t equip it and then we’re gonna go ahead and go to the enchantress and go to inventory we’ll take her weapon as well and then we’ll give her a weapon it to the Templar over here it’s a small amount of damage hey everything matters in the very beginning anyways and then the next thing that we’re actually going to go ahead and do and this is where we kind of don’t follow the quick season start tracker in order because this way we’ll be a little bit faster the next thing that you want to do is.
Quire the kanai’s cube you don’t actually have to swap it to a normal difficulty if you’re able to complete it most people can probably still do it on like hard difficulty but if you really need to make it uneasy like for whatever reason it might be too hard you can definitely change the difficulty but you want to go ahead and go to act 3 the ruins of saffron what you’re just gonna go ahead and be in the top right over here so you want to go ahead and get the cube if you don’t know the exact location I’m just gonna pin a video down below but basically you just go through it and then you will go ahead and get kanai’s cube which I’m sure a lot of you guys are familiar with but there is something different with season 20 that you can level up by doing this like other secret cow level which is more specific to this season because of its timeframe but the most part you’re just going over there to get the cube and if you don’t know how to get the cube again how we’ll have that video pin it down below in the comment section below alright now that we have the commodities cube we’re gonna go ahead and now level up the blacksmith we’ve gotten a bunch of materials and gold from doing the challenge rift so we’re gonna use those materials and actually level up the blacksmith to the maximum rank that we can so mines already maxed out because the season hasn’t started but you just go ahead and level them up to the max level and this will allow you to go ahead and craft a weapon so this is where it gets a little bit interesting because it’s different for every single class and I’ll kind of mention what you want to try to look for for every single class let me go and pop that up on the screen over here I’m just gonna make this a little bit bigger so you guys can see it so depending on what class that you are playing we’re actually looking at this section right here that says upgrade weapon so depending on what we’re playing we’re gonna go ahead and actually craft a different type of a weapon so in our case since we are playing necromancer we’re going to be making a two-handed scythe but again depending on your class look at the corresponding thing that you’re going to go ahead and actually upgrade one thing that is important you’ll see where it says 3 out of 6 which says 50% that is showing off the chance to actually randomly generate a a legendary weapon that will have a multiplier that we want so as soon as you’re able to go ahead and do.
We’re gonna have a huge multiplier on a certain ability this makes it very very easy to go ahead and throw into your can ice cube and actually extract the legendary power we’re not going to be able to equip it immediately so what we’re going to do is we’re going to make a legendary item that will be level 70 but we can’t equip it so we’re gonna extract the legendary power via the cube so let me go ahead and actually show you guys how this looks so like I said it’s different for every single class looking at the right side not the left side the left side is for blood tribes which we’ll do it in a moment but what we want for the necromancer is to upgrade it again two-handed sights so let’s go ahead and do that now one thing I want to mention with the necromancer is it says 4 to 4 100% the reason why a lot of people will be starting off with necromancer is simply because you have 100% chance to actually create a weapon that will have a multiplier for you which is huge because the rest of the class is with the exception of the demon hunter we’ll all have a orangie chance whereas the demon hunter it’s more so like 50% because it takes so long for you to go ahead and actually utilize the lord’s green stone so all these will have some type of bonus damage to some type of ability the reason why the necromancers is so good is because you basically have more freedom with the class as far as what you want to really do unless you happen to get the petrified spike which only works with bone spear but for the most of it you’ll be able to utilize whatever you want and you’ll be a huge advantage at the start so again we’re gonna go ahead and craft the two-handed sight so let’s go ahead and do that so go ahead and go to the forge weapon and then we’re going to go ahead and make sure we go to the two-handed sight and then we’re gonna go ahead and craft a level 71 so we’re gonna go ahead and craft this one it’s gonna take a second and then what couldn’t go ahead and see the item you’ll see that we cannot equip it right now but that’s okay what we’re gonna go ahead and do is use the kanai’s cube and we’re going to use the recipe called hope for cane it’s actually on page 3 we’re gonna go ahead and put in our two ends scythe or whatever weapon that we want to go ahead and have our transept but with necromancer we’ll have 100% chance now you won’t have the exact same amount of materials but you’ll have enough to be able to create one of these so we’re going to go ahead and transmute and we happen to get the shadow hook so you’ll see with the secondary ability it says every point of maximum essence increases your damage by 0.5% and bone spikes generates an additional amount of essence which has a random roll factor of anywhere from two to five it doesn’t matter what that rolls you’re gonna go ahead and put in the cube anyways because you cannot equip it so what we’re gonna do is go to the cube and then we’re gonna go ahead and use the very first one that it’s going to extract the legendary power and it’s going to actually consume the item just as a heads up now I already have this legendary power but once that goes away because it will go away we’re gonna go ahead and click on it your weapon over here and because of the season 20 change you actually can you quit multiple weapons normally it supposed to be one weapon one armor and one ring but you could have multiple the shadow hook is something that you can actually just incorporate and then you on top of it if you get another one you can actually run two copies of it that’s where season 20 is a little bit different but anyways we’re gonna go ahead and go to the correct page over here it is alphabetized so we’re gonna go ahead and go on the shadow hook and then now we’re going to be doing a bunch more damage because we happen to have the federal hook so we just get free bonus amount of damage based on the amount of maximum essence that we have so this is going to be our huge DPS boost over here alright so once you go ahead and have your weapon at DPS multiplier if you got it again every class is different over here there might not be 100% chance for your class and maybe you crafted a weapon that doesn’t have a multiplier that’s unlucky it happens but you still have a chance with your blood shards now this is something that’s actually pretty important to mention depending on what class you play you might want to go ahead and use your blood charge at level one some classes it might not be good to use it at level one like for example you can see on the wizard over here at central is at level 33 so depending on your level you actually want to go ahead and maybe acquire this earlier on or later on and it might be very important to get it earlier on because some items will have a higher chance of drop at a lower level with the Kedah blood shards let me go ahead and kind of explain this so if I was to go ahead and use my blood shards.
Kunal up for let’s say a source which is like the off hand over here you’ll see that episode jewel is at level 33 this this website is the d3 planner calm and I’ll link that also down below but edie social can drop at level 33 whereas once we hit level 34 we can get lighter grace we don’t want lighter grace it doesn’t really give us a multiplier Mirrorball doesn’t give us a multiplier that technically goes with extra magical missiles but we want something that gives us bonus damage that’s what we’re really looking forward with these blood shards over here so make sure that you go ahead and check out the website again depending on what you want to roll for now there are a few class multipliers they can actually be doubled up over here where you can kind of stack them let me go ahead and give you an example with let’s say the demon hunter so with the demon hunter we can see that we have a 50/50 of getting the Lord green stones fans or Carly’s point if we go ahead and get Carly’s point over here which is an item that gives us bonus damage with impale we can also get another bonus with the impale skill if we happen to go ahead and actually go and at a specific level over here you’ll see we’ll go ahead and swap it over to demon hunter and at specifically level 31 we can get the holy point shot which is a bonus with impale where it’s gonna throw two additional knives so we can kind of stack not only if we get lucky and get let’s say the Khali’s point we can also use their blood shards at specifically level 31 to go ahead and actually get the holy point shot now depending on what class you’re playing and what you actually get onto your legendary weapon if you got it because remember it’s completely random you want to try to go for your blood shards at maybe different levels and again I’ll link that down below I won’t go over every single class and what you rolled and what you should roll because again it’s random you might get an item as you progress and that might kind of change your opinion on what you want to actually try to get now another thing I want to mention that it’s actually pretty important with kadala over here is certain things will cost more you’ll see that we’ll have 475 to spend so we have a decent chance to go ahead and actually get something but some items will cost 75 some will cost 25.
I recommend going for the ones that cost 25 you’ll see over in the example over here they mentioned with the necromancer you can go for the circle deluge.
Or you can go ahead and get the grasp of essence over here which are going to be some gloves over here that can proc with bonus damage to corpse explosion over here so you can kind of decide what you want to go ahead and go for and depending on again what you roll with us we got the shadow hook so that’s gonna increase the damage of everything so I can go ahead and go for corpse explosion because maybe there is a room potentially like this one over here let me go and actually move this out of the way which is going to be let’s say poison if I happen to get the one that has bonus poison damage and our case it doesn’t really matter but I can get bonus terms with corpse explosion am i can get bonus damage with a shadow hook so that’s really what you’re trying to search for when you are trying to go with your blood shard so let’s go ahead and spend some blood shards we might not get it but just as the heads up it’s it’s all orangey here but we’ll go ahead and look oh we happen to get them that’s pretty lucky.
So this is in a situation where we would be getting a double multiply and this is what can make you be able to scale and just make the difficulty go up a lot higher but yeah this is the blood shard mechanic over here and that’s kind of how you utilize it if you have extra a lot of people like to go ahead and start going for the helms because you can get a lower Sproul okay this is like insane luck but if I was to get like this setup right here as soon as the season starts with the grasp of essence and I got a Oryx crown which lid I can throw in a ruby in it and get massive bonus experience once we go ahead and get it gem this would be like a super huge head start on this season but that’s how we would utilize our blood shards again both the things will be pinned down below alright one thing I do want to go ahead and mention is that you cannot double up on any of the legendary powers as in if I go ahead and have that season 20 buff which is going to give us the ability to go ahead and have multiple weapons I can’t put in two copies of the shadow hook you can only still have one copy of each item but you can have multiple weapons so the next step after we go ahead and have our DPS boost the next step is actually going to be go ahead and choosing how we actually want to progress in the game there are several different ways to level up and it’s kind of.
To you and how you want to do it if you guys want my recommendation I’m going to recommend you guys to do the riffs so you have a few different options and I’m gonna go ahead and go over all of them really quick so the first option is to go ahead and do the nephilim riffs these are really good because it’s a lot more enjoyable honestly than doing some of the same farming methods over and over again which are going to be either doing the cleavers method which is you go ahead and hop right into the halls of agony and you just go ahead and look for these cleavers which you guys can see on the screen and you do it in torment 6 which is the highest opal you can have as soon as you start the season but basically you learn on the enemy’s order to the cleavers and they die instantly but it’s just really not enjoyable to do it so first several hours I know there’s people that do like it so I’ll mention it.
But there’s also the Canaries stomping ground and I’ll show you guys gameplay of that method but I’m sure a lot of guys are familiar with riffs I’m not gonna go ahead and do like a full rift for you guys but that is the primary way that I personally like to do it because you have a higher chance for Legendary’s and again it’s just a much more enjoyable experience but all you got to do to it go ahead and hop right in and just click on the Nephilim obelisk and again this is only for adventure mode you click on Nephilim and you go ahead and click except it’s gonna open up a portal and you’ll go ahead and complete it it’s just a much more enjoyable experience than the rest of them because it’s not as repetitive plus you also get blood shards from it but let me go and show you the new season 20 method of leveling that’s only available for the month of March alright so I said I’d show off the season 20 kunai stomping ground and here’s how you actually locate it so here’s where the kanai’s cube would be in elder sanctum and this tile set is actually going to be the exact same every single time so you’ll end up having to farm this over and over again but this is how this seasonal leveling works and again this is only available for season 20 so if you want to take advantage of it while you can you can go ahead and feel free to go ahead and do so so we’re gonna go ahead and go to the immortal throne this is just like towards the left side over here and you’ll see that there is an kunai.
No come over it’s a cool little event thing over here and you’ll see that there is a portal that will open up and this is the canalis stomping ground so this is again another way that you can level up it’s not the cow level but it’s the cow level but anyways so yeah this is just an area that you can go ahead and complete and the density is okay but that is another way that you can level up people really like to go ahead and do that but there is technically another way to level up and I want to go ahead and actually just mention that it’s very tedious to do this I actually was wondering if it was actually like super super fast in terms of speed but it’s not going to be that much faster in terms of doing like the full like 1 through 70 but I do want to mention specifically once you hit level 7 to 10 you can look for these vendors called the fences and we’re gonna go ahead and actually do that so we see one of the fencers over here and we’re looking for a ring that offers like 2 to 4 damage you can find them in several different addicts I usually like to go to the act one vendor over here but even though it only adds a small amount of damage it actually adds a huge amount of actual damage because everything will be scaling off of that number if that makes sense so you can go ahead and go over to erratic the fence over here and oh here we go perfect first right and if you are playing in a group these are tradable or basically you can give it to them so you want to go ahead and actually purchase a bunch of these so if you’re in a party and you’ve got like a few friends with you buy them all get them for everyone and then your progression will be a lot faster and then the next thing you want to do is basically start setting up all of your weapons for your leveling so you’re gonna actually start crafting some weapons so you can use them as you go.
Had and progress so let’s go ahead and actually check off the check for fences at level seven to ten the next step that we want to do is to craft a two-handed weapon at blacksmith and a socket in your helmet so we didn’t really pick up any of the gear but I do want to go ahead mention if you happen to get a helm try to get a socket on it so you can go ahead and put a rue because that will increase your experience or if you get a lyrics crown that’s also something is going to have a socket in it and then we’re gonna go ahead and actually start crafting weapons so we can use them as we go ahead and progress alright so our next step is to craft with those two-handed weapons so let’s go ahead and show off how to do that so one thing I want to go ahead and mention is you will have to have a blacksmith leveled up for this but what you want to actually crack is going to go ahead and be a two-handed because they actually scale better we actually want to focus in on the axe as well as the mace the reason why is because they won’t be rolling with like plus two like energy and that’s actually something that’s important because when we go ahead and we roll some of the stats on it we don’t want those modifiers so we’re gonna go ahead and stick with the mace or the axe it doesn’t really matter too much but for the most part people just go for the axe and then it doesn’t really matter too much but you want to go ahead and actually first try to craft a level 70 weapon with this specific secondary stat you don’t really care too much about the primaries I mean ideally if it can have extra intelligence or whatever your main stat is you want to actually get one of those if you can but the most important thing is actually on the secondary here so you won’t be able to craft a ton of these because these will cost your materials and you won’t happen to have the ability to craft infinite amount of these but what you’re really looking for first is try to craft a few of these with chance to like freeze on hit or chance to do something the reason why you want it to have some type of CC on the weapon is because when you go ahead and go to the mystic remember that you have to level this up so we got on our second try which is quite great so what we’re gonna go ahead and do is we’re going to go ahead and enchant it but we’re going to go ahead and actually keep this that one the reason why is because if I was to use this weapon right here that doesn’t have that chance to CC and I try to roll it again this is a level 71 I can still happen to get chance to fear stone blind free slow immobilized I can get those on the weapon I don’t want any of those so what I’m going to do is take the weapon that can have that chance to do whatever on hit but roll the other thing on it the reason why I want to roll the other thing on is because I want this weapon to be utilized at earliest we can use it at level 40 theoretically if you get an ancient weapon you can technically use it at level 30 versus 40 but it’s very unlikely that you get that so for the sake of the video this is much more consistent so we’re looking to get as high number as we can as possible with the possible property so it does vary a lot from the range here so I’m just going to show you guys a couple rolls here and we’ll bind it to your account so you’ll see we didn’t unfortunately if the level reduced its it’s supposed to be like basically a one in three chance that it rolls on it but it’s just this game sometimes unlucky or injure so now you can see it requires us to be level 48 at this point what I would do is I got one of these it’s not too bad I like to spend all of mine to get it as close as I possibly can but you guys can kind of you know gauge your luck on this how does you keep on rolling it will cost goal but don’t worry Goulding Diablo doesn’t really mean anything you want this to be as high as possible you want it to be the ideally you get to level 30 as the reduction which means that you can start using a level 70 weapon at level 30 but yeah I just keep on rolling if you want to and you’ll go ahead and be able to use a very very strong weapon at a low level but I also want to mention that you can kind of create a bunch of different weapons now these ones you don’t have to look for the level requirement reduction you’re just going to go ahead and craft weapons that you can use as you progress so if you want to go ahead and make one level 16 21 you can basically make a bunch of these if you want to as you progress sometimes they will be better than what you have sometimes they won’t be but you only need to go up to like let’s say 40 ish because again at that point you might be able to that’s what I’ll be able to use at 48 so I wouldn’t need to craft like a 50 if that makes sense because I’ll have a level 70 weapon but yeah go ahead and start crafting these and if you happen to want to you can craft them as you progress like because you might get a weapon that’s but if you really wanted a min/max on saving these but I wouldn’t really worried about these I would just start crafting a bunch of these and then make sure you don’t when you go ahead and salvage you don’t salvage the ones that you actually just went ahead and craft it over there but just keep that in mind as well because they will be at the lead and over here if you don’t modify them if you do modify unlike the one I did over here it won’t disenchant it but make sure you guys go ahead and actually do that so now that check is indeed complete but yeah that’s the craft the 200 weapon and then if you do happen to have Ruby go ahead and put that in your helmet it’s the gem I don’t have a lower level one but if you want to see what the gem looks like for the sake of being as thorough as possible this is what it does it will grant you bonus experience up until level 70 which it still gives you bonus experience but I had a huge reduction in its rate and then from here out on 270 you’re just gonna go ahead and choose your leveling method which again I mentioned already before but to go ahead and mention it again you had the option of doing the rifts you have the option of doing the masker bonuses you can do the halls of agony a temple of the firstborn the ruins of corbs these are really great areas to get those massacred bonus alternatively you can go ahead and do the cleavers method or the kunai stomping ground which I already show it off just choose your method and kind of just do your little progression from there on out and I’ve already shown you guys the weapon and pretty much as you progress in the game a little pop will come up yeah I select your passive which was pretty much just at 10 level intervals with the exception of the final one acquiring at level 70 yeah you just pretty much will be equipping your passives this one is random but if you happen to get the Canes or a born set you’re actually going to be getting bonus xp let me go and show you guys what that looks like so if you come across a goblin that drops the plans for the King set you can actually craft the King set and potentially get bonus XP on your character so that would be nice but again that’s random you might not always get that so don’t worry if you don’t get that.
And then of course a little 30 you’re gonna get another passive now at level 33 over here it says intergroup snapshot run bounties in a level-one t6 game it’s part of the season journey anyways and you’re gonna end up requiring to do with this I would recommend just skipping out on this I would rather just do risk personally and then you’ll do your bounties at a higher difficulty later down the line for the season journey as you’ll be required to kill certain bosses on certain format difficulties which will also be a part of your season journey anyways because we’re gonna need to do the batteries I’d rather double up on these so this is where I skip out on this for now but I already showed you guys at the craft slash enchant so we’re gonna go and check that box as well and their crafting armor this I’m skip out on pretty much I mean yeah you can craft armor but really what’s the point I mean if you happen to have extra materials you can do it but I’d rather save the materials anyways for re-roll so I would skip out on this this was again where I would differ from it equipping your fourth passive skill once you get 70 and then I would skip out on the rest of these and then just basically use the d3 resource for this entire season journey which this is one also has a little checkbox over here too but this is going to be for a separate video I don’t want to overwhelm you guys with too much information on one video but yeah there it is guys the entire season 1 through 70 leveling guide and as far as like what you need to do in between doing the rifts once again just again if you want my suggestions just do the nephilim rifts are super simple to go ahead and do because all you do is you just kill a bunch of monsters at the very end when you find a boss you’ll get bloody shards it’s just a much more enjoyable experience than doing repeats of the same thing over and over again and if you want a good time frame for how long it’ll take it depends on your gear and if you happen to get better gear you can go ahead and up the difficulty pretty much just go up into the point where you feel like you’re not progressing as fast as you should and then just go ahead and lower the difficulty you can always lower your difficulty in-game so I recommend just go as high as you possibly can not torment 6 really torment 1 is at most what you’re gonna be able to do in this you know double multiplier on like your random kadala role plus you get the hope of Kane role so it’s kind of random as far as I how high you should go in difficulty but if you’re feeling like you can clear out stuff way way faster go ahead and leave the game remake the game at a higher difficulty and you can always lower it so you can always again just click on lower difficulty in game and it’s much easier than to go to a lower difficulty to leave every single time and go higher if that makes sense start out higher and then just lower if things are too difficult but there it is guys the entire season starter slash loveling guide and if you guys want to check out my other videos to kind of help you guys out like I mentioned before if you’re looking to complete the entire challenge
