Since grinding spots don’t really change after you hit 60, do away with most of your Amulet skills (save for buffs and debuffs) and rely on Violation downward slash to minimize rotations.
Since the build simulator isn’t up to date, Amulet autoattack-related skills don’t have any points. Infinite Mastery and Skilled Hunter also have not been properly updated yet. You can refer to the in-game skill tree and max out Infinite Mastery as well as Skilled Hunter.
If you’re someone who only cares about the best leveling build, look it over at each level and decide where the build will go in regards to the final skill.
To kill monsters, you can consume Shards of Darkness using Black Wave while getting aggro with Mark of the Shadow. If you prefer to speed up the process, you can also go with Midnight Stinger - Rushing Crow – Violation. Depending on your AP, you can minimize your rotation by omitting buffs and debuffs. Dream of Doom is good for cleaning up any stray monsters that get left behind.
I wouldn’t recommend prioritizing Dark Flame if you want to focus on leveling because it just ends up spreading out monsters. Consume Shards of Darkness for conserving mana and use Bloody Calamity or Abyssal Flame for health. Put a single point in Signs of Agony for grinding golems and basilisks.
At the time of writing, approximately 1400 points are required to complete leveling skills and reach level 60. Since you’ll be starved for points in the early stages, I recommend putting points in Cartian’s Nightmare and Awakening auto attacks after you have pretty much gotten the skills you want. Without those two skills, the required points come out to be about 1200.
Players’ opinions are divided on Dream of Doom because Imminent Doom is such a good instant cast skill. However, I’m not sure if people whose only focus is leveling really need Dream of Doom. First off, Dream of Doom costs a ton of mana and is only useful in rare circumstances. I count myself on the side which believes that having Dream of Doom in the rotation causes damage loss. That said, Dream of Doom is still a decent skill, although opinions are polarized when it comes to leveling. I don’t think it will serve much purpose other than occasionally finishing off stray monsters with low health, but use your own discretion to decide if it fits your playstyle or not.
