There are two major uses for the Dry Hills. First the fact that the entrance to the Halls of the Dead is located on this level, but there is also the first wilderness-placed waypoint here. There is also a second waypoint on the second level of the Halls of the Dead.

In the Halls you will find the Horadric Cube, so if you can survive in the dungeon, you should try to do that first, as the cube will give you more inventory space for future adventuring.
