My advise for leveling a WD:
Use pets, dogs and gargantua. They help so much.
At low level Firebats rule, as you level they get less awesome.
Acid cloud takes over from Firebats at some point as most awesome.
(experiment to find out)
Big slow two handed weapon with Acid Cloud is very good while leveling.
(Fyi, big slow two handed weapons are much better if you mostly use high damage, high mana cost spells like Acid cloud. Small fast one handed weapons + mojo are better for lower cost spells like Poison Dart.)
Use socketed gear!!!!!
You can buy cheap leveling gear on the AH that has sockets.
You can buy cheap gems on the AH to put in those sockets that are designed for level 55+ and thus are very strong at lower levels.
Buy weapons on the AH that have the "lower level requirement" mod. Can make a huge difference in dps.
Ya I have already noticed the waning awesomeness of the bats and my now favorite acid cloud.

I am doing that as well, it is easier now that I have more combinations. I have a question though, you can make it (in the options) so that you can mix and match your skills, should I be doing that at all or just stick to one of each???
And shout out to tigerclan who gave me some good stuff (relative to me at least) that I look forward to being able to use :) Also helped me finish act IV, normal was so tedious. Nightmare is 10 times better. Can't wait for Hell and Inferno :D
