Stats

Prioritize gear with Crit and Specialization for extra damage and clear speed while leveling. Swiftness is good to have for Gunslingers but Endurance, Domination, and Expertise are useless stats.

Skills

Skills can be reset at any time at no cost. While leveling, prioritize skill points towards skills that let you clear mobs of monsters as quickly as possible on a low cooldown. Here are the most important Gunslinger skills:
