At downtime today (Sept 15th) the Dreadlands will now give boosted 15% more experience and 7.5% more gold. This will last until Monday at downtime. Any area with the name 'Dreadlands' will be affected.
Please remember XP/Gold scrolls and area bonuses do not stack. It will choose the higher of the two.
Enjoy and stay on your toes if you venture there!
