    What do you do after a mat / pat?

    Diablo 2 is great and LOD is a brilliant expansion but once your char has killed hell Baal and even gone after the farm what do you do next?

    Just need some pointers as i dont want my char to go to waste after she has picked up the full tal set and then has run out of challenges to unleash her wrath over.

    Here's most popular options:

    1: Mf for your future chars (if you twink)
    2: Mf for grail
    3: Go for lvl 99
    4: Aim for PvP (who cares how good u are against monsters, pvp is where the true challange lies ("PvP comercial")):wink3:

    I usually delete the mat'ed/pat'ed chars
    I usually forgot some pieces of equipment in them too...

    I actually wondered the same thing. I have a few (very few) characters that have solved the game. Since that point they remain idle so far. The only one that is active is my magic finder. I believe however that XDoomasX covered what others do with these chararaters. There are threads on the Grail and Level 99 progress chracters and that seems to be the most popular (and only?) options available for those characters.

    Well, a few honest suggestions here that you can try:

    1. Join the lv 99 quest
    2. Join the SPF Elite Runner
    3. Help people to do MP games, like you have a high level character, and the person, who is playing a low level character need someone to be his tank, so you can use your patted or matted character to help him.
    4. Go EMB and drink beer
    5. Blame Durf

    Heh, haven't touched my gamewinner since he saw the final screen. Reason being he was a HC fishymancer and I don't want to do something stupid like go get him killed. So I work on other characters for the time being.

    The main tasks have been covered though. Find an idea for a new character and devote time towards that, kick back and test your mettle versus thinking opponents or develop the character even further. No character has a chance of being perfect before 99, right?

    @suiling, i actually dared to try a HC punchadin and i was killed in hell diablo.

    Well i usually after i beat hell baal. Make a new char one that is harder or funner then the one before. Lvl 99 is also a fun but long task. But after 35 mat/pat i finally decided to try HC, and so far its fun because you actually take care of your self soyou wont die.

    I sit down and cry because I suddenly realize I've spent another 5 hours playing D2 instead of improving my poor grades. :sad2:

    Then I go make a new one.

    I strip gear and try hyper-optimize another character. Only certain characters (PvPer's, MF'ers, Baalers, etc) have a lifespan that extends past their Pat/mat status.

    A naked English guy covered in jam is probably not that unusual in Bangkok.

    Fancy a game of Ping Pong ?
