Posted May 18, 2012 - By Leah Jackson

This Diablo 3 quick tips video will help you level up faster, get the best items, earn extra gold, and more. After playing through Blizzard Entertainment's action role playing game, we found that there are a few ways to make the experience as a whole better and we wanted to share them with you. Check them out below.

Diablo 3: Top 8 Tips You Need To Know »

After the break you can find a full breakdown of each Diablo 3 quick tip.

  • Your character can autorun as long as you hold down the left mouse button where you want them to go. This means less clicking so your fingers won’t get as tired during long playsessions.
  • In most cases don’t pick up any gear that's grey or white unless it’s a health potion or a gem. Generally they’re never useful, don't sell for much, and you’ll easily find better quality gear while you’re out adventuring.
  • Don’t worry about crafting gear in the beginning of the game. You'll always find better gear out while exploring for the most part. You should keep all of the blue and yellow items you find to salvage at the Blacksmith though, since you can use the materials you get from salvaging them later in the game to craft higher level items.
  • If you know you're going to be playing with the same few friends, pool your resources when it comes to crafting. That way, one blacksmith/jewelcrafter will reach a really high level and can make higher-level gear for everyone rather than everyone having low level artisans.

  • Remember that your artisans are persistent regardless of which character you play on, so you should always train them when you have gold so they get access to better, higher-level gear and new crafting recipes.  Gold’s useless except for the Auction House and repairing, so use all of it on training your artisans.
  • To salvage items faster at the Blacksmith, click on the salvage tab under Crafting, then click the anvil icon on your items rather than dragging your items to the anvil to salvage them.
  • You can retrain your followers for free at anytime by right clicking on their portrait and selecting retrain.
  • Turning on Elective Mode allows you to set multiple skills from the same category on your toolbar. It also allows you to move skills wherever you want on the bar. To use Elective Mode go to Options  > gameplay > and it’s in the lower right.

That’s all for now, but as we play through the game more I’m sure we’ll come up with some more tips for you. In the meantime, check out all of our Diablo 3 content and let us know what kind of Diablo 3 content you want to see next.
