ONE
Use elective mode: it lets you assign any skill you want, even if they are in the same school or tree, to the various skill hotkeys #D3Tips

TWO
Play with friends, earn more XP. Voice chat can help tremendously with coordination, and a diverse group can swap gear between classes #D3Tips

THREE
Save time and gold by assigning each player an artisan--focusing on one lets them hit max level faster and then trade with friends #D3Tips

FOUR
For bosses and stronger mobs, be mindful of what skills they're using against you. Learn the modifiers and how to guard against them #D3Tips

FIVE
In the auction house, be mindful of quantity when selling items. Do not flood the market with duplicates because it only drives down the price #D3Tips

SIX
Keep an eye on the auction house; you might find superior items for an equal or lower price than at a vendor. Be a smart shopper! #D3Tips

SEVEN
If you craft an item that lacks desirable stats, you might turn a profit by auctioning it off if those modifiers are strong #D3Tips

EIGHT
Save gems! It's cheap to unsocket gems, so there's no reason you shouldn't do it. Don't be wasteful, and save gems when possible #D3Tips

NINE
Study your environment and lure large groups of enemies into tight spaces to gain the advantage, and use the environmental traps #D3Tips

TEN
You are going to die, but a loss isn't truly a loss if you learn something. Unless you're playing on hardcore; then you're just dead #D3Tips
