I've beaten the final boss, and now when I go to load the game I get two options: Playthrough 1, and Playthrough 2.
When I load Playthrough 1, it's exactly the same as I left it. What happens when I select Playthrough 2? Does my character transfer over to a new game intact and erase the Playthrough 1 save in the process? Or are they interchangeable (For instance, my character is the same regardless of the Playthrough I select, only quests and such are different)?
Or have I by winning the game frozen my character as they'll start in Playthrough 2? For instance, I continue to play Playthrough 1 and gain a few levels. Will, when I select Playthrough 2, begin a new game with my character as they are after the levels are gained? --- "If you're going to be a mod, you should work harder to get rid of your humanity.

You can bounce back and forth between playthroughs without messing up your save. Playthrough 2 just starts you off at the beginning with your character intact. Just think of it as a harder difficulty level.
Capital! Thank you for answering my query. Another:
When, upon completion of the second playthrough, am I able to start a third playthrough with my character? As in, another reset of quests and such? --- "If you're going to be a mod, you should work harder to get rid of your humanity. It's creepy." ~ Monker to The Paragon
After you finish PT 2, the quests don't reset, but the enemies in PT 2 all scale up to your level, assuming you've fully patched the game. --- They circled the Earth three times and then vanished! http://www.last.fm/user/Weebo126/
The 3rd DLC raises the cap to level 61. The 1.4.1 title patch increased the cap by eight levels, regardless of which DLC you own. Thus: Someone with Borderlands pre-1.4.1 and no Knoxx will have a cap of 50. Someone with Borderlands 1.4.1 and no Knoxx will have a cap of 58. Someone with Borderlands pre-1.4.1 and Knoxx will have a cap of 61. Finally, someone with Borderlands 1.4.1 and Knoxx will have a level cap of 69.
I really, really wished they turned the level scaling on before the end of PT2. If you do pretty much any DLC in PT1, you'll be overlevelled throughout the entirety of PT2. --- John Magnum Master of Subtlety
But wait assuming I got all DLC, the patch, that I finished playthrough 2 and that I want to play the expansions with enemies scaled to my lvl. How does this work, do I need to get to 69 before the enemies will scale or can I start the expansions at lvl 50 then? --- "I'll see you guys at dinner"
