    Default Refresh Your Characters!

    1) Set your system clock back one year
    2) Login to expired char
    3) You're done!

    It will work as long as no one created a char with the same name so don't post bullshit please.

    And you can also log straight into characters that have not been confirmed Expired (Couple of weeks back).

    OFFICIAL STATE MENT

    Expired Diablo II characters are now being treated much the same way as Battle.net accounts are treated when they have reached expiration status. When an established character (one having at least 2 hours of in-game time accumulated) has gone unused for a period of 90 days, it is considered expired. You will still be able to use and refresh this character by selecting and entering a game. Once this is done, the expiration timer resets and you will have 90 days again to use it before it becomes expired again. If a character has not been accessed for 90 days, the character name will be available to anyone making a new character. If this happens, the original will no longer be able to be used. A "Player not Found" message will appear if you select an expired character that has had its name used by another user. Characters that have gone unused for 90 days are also subject to being deleted by routine periodic maintenance performed on the realms. It's very important for you to use any character that has reached an expired status if you wish to keep the character. Any character that has expired and either been purged by maintenance or had its name used by another user can not be restored.

    When refreshing characters, we strongly suggest entering a game and performing an activity to cause the characters inventory or status to change. Killing a monster to gain experience, or buying or selling an item to change your inventory are adequate methods to refresh your character and be certain it has been saved correctly.

    And to Mod's/Admin's, I put this here so it would get more views, not that it's going to get much any-way.

    Please do not move it.

    Would this work for a deleted character also maybe? Sure would be nice since someone I know deleted my 97 hammerdin. But yes this is very useful I had some characters with some good gear just expire. +Virtual Rep! lol

    Apprently it's a bug that came with the new intended implement.

    There are reports on EoN that characters up to 6 months old have been restored.

    :) Have fun all :)
