[3.2] Fast Leveling Guide

NEW LEVELING GUIDE FOR 3.3 HERE:
https://www.pathofexile.com/forum/view-thread/2150196

"
NOTE: New quest added to Act 10. The quest is called "Vilenta's Vengeance" and is giving 1 Skill Point. It's still unclear were this area is located so I'm afraid you need to discover this for yourself. I will update the guide as soon as I'm done with this quest.

This guide is for fast leveling where we only focusing on completing quests which gives us skill points and to proceed in the acts.

All the WP's listed are necessary for the purpose of this guide. I do recommend getting the WP's you happen to see, even if they are not in the list (couldn't hurt right?)

Only go back to town when you want to complete your quests (recommended in the list).

You can come back later to do all the Labyrinths since you only need those for doing the Ascendy Labyrinth and if you haven't done them on a previous character.

"Optional" means quests that's not needed.

Thanks! Nice work so far, but try to fix all the unclear things.

Please let me know what's unclear.
Clear and concise guide, has made leveling optimally much easier. Greatly appreciated!
Part 2, A6:
"> The Warden's Chambers
> The Prisoner's Gate
+ Get WP"
after killing Shavronne is not necessary. WP is automatically unlocked.

Awesome, thanks for the guide :)
I just got back into town tonight and am super stoked to use this tomorrow when I start the league. Only thing I'd like a little clarity on is your use of the various symbols, just to make sure I'm understanding correctly (-,+,<,>).

Thanks!

- Start (town or a WP that you've already collected)
+ Do something (kill, find, talk etc.)
> Go to this area
< Back to town to complete quests

I hope this helps, let me know otherwise! :) Good luck!

Yeah, sometimes they unlock by themselves, but since you see them immediately it doesn't hurt to wright this down. Nothing that slows down your process.
