    We had a 100% bonus experience weekend just prior to release of Reaper of Souls and now we have a +50% bonus from Friday to Monday.

    Over 1.5 million players around the world have stopped Death since Reaper of Souls™ launched last Tuesday, March 25. To celebrate this achievement and help support your ongoing crusade against the forces of evil, all nephalem who log into Diablo III this weekend will receive a +50% bonus to XP! This bonus XP period begins in the European region tonight, April 4 at 17:00 p.m. CEST and ends on Monday, April 7 at 5:00 a.m. CEST. Thank you so much for being a hero of Sanctuary. We hope you have fun this weekend, and we’ll see you in Westmarch!

    Due to time zone differences, the bonus started 5 hours earlier on the EU server than on the US server, which led to some worries that it was a bonus even only for Europe. Not to worry!

    So if you have suffered an unfortunate hardcore loss recently due to the recent connection and lag issues this weekend will be a welcome leg up. Anyone planning to do some major grinding to take advantage of this buff?

    Note that it’s not 50% multiplying your total EXP. It’s just another 50% of the sort you get from going up in difficulty levels. So now you’ll get 250% instead of 200% for Master, 350% instead of 300% for Torment 1, etc. That value does get multiplied by your +EXP gear (such as Hellfire Rings and Ruby helms) and the multiplayer bonus (10% per player) though, so it can add up to a considerable bonus.
