I set this character up intending to run it under the following criteria:
Self Found/No AH whatsoever
Allowed to buy gear from vendors - but not allowed to scum for better gear to buy.
Not allowed to regrind content (I have to be careful about where I log out, etc due to this - for times when I am required to go through somewhere again (like cemetery) I have to try not to kill mobs if I can help it, not loot chests, etc, and just run through to the exit - otherwise I might be stuck with too long a play session needed between checkpoints that won't require me to travel through somewhere I've already been. There's only a few places where this is even relevant, like the entrance to the chapel and the cemetary, and they're all very small, IIRC, so it should be easy to just run through them without fighting anything)
No upgrading blacksmith or jeweler
No buying new stash slots
(the last two are really why I set it up on the EU side, so I'd be running with the equivalent of a brand-new account with no advantages, and I'd be able to leave that stuff unupgraded)
Basically, shooting for a direct quest progression run, starting from scratch, without repeating, to see how far I can get.
I ended up only really playing her for a tiny bit on one or two patch days, when US was down and EU was up. I think I'm going to go for it. Every time I've considered it before I decided I'd rather farm in inferno or be releveling to be farming in inferno - but now - why the hell not?
Considering running another deadpool giveaway w/ US HC gold as payout, but I dunno - the last one was certainly funny (which was what I was shooting for) but people were sad when I RIP'd.
Edit: Alright - I'll run another deadpool. What the hell. Payout will be 5M US HC gold, plus whatever EU HC gold/gear/etc I have if you want it (if you don't I'll just pitch all the gear and find an eu somebody to give the gold to - and the "gear" will probably amount to terrible gems because that may be all I have the stash space for)
Add one post giving the level (or paragon ... but ... with no regrinding, paragon is probably unreasonable) you expect me to die at. The first person picking that level gets that level as their entry - edited entries will not be considered valid unless the name/level picked are listed below
I'm currently level 10, I exited at the checkpoint in town right before going back into the cathedral for the skeleton king run. I'll not play until the weekend to give people time to put entries in.

If you run a dead pool I am taking level 22
Edit: I am doing self-found only MP10 here later in the year (I have an idea of the start date) and I am planning to do a betting system actually instead fo a one-way payout. See how that goes. =)

I think you'll ding @ 27.
And it won't be to a Boss. The only reason I say this is because Wizzys are vulnerable in this area of level progression. Enemies are starting to get hard and you won't yet have the good character skills yet to deal with them. But you are a great player. . .So you might just tap the 30's. I hope you do.

Yeah, I totally understand. Honestly, I died to the butcher a lot when I first started playing, so it will be interesting to see if I get to him, and get past him (although I am definitely a lot better now).
I want this so bad...when they walk they have to do the dance...lol
Also, picking level...33!!!
i have a lot more faith in you than the rest of these guys! i say lvl 45.
I heard that the DH's all have polished sharkskin vests, large gold chains, and assless chaps.
Kinda look like the lead singer for Judas Priest.
Also, there's no way you can enter inferno on MP10 and survive the first pack of elites.
I certainly don't expect to do that. I accidentally dropped my WD into AII inferno MP10 once (I had been pleveling a friend and forgot to drop the MP when I decided to go farming), and I barely survived and didn't even *see* an elite pack (I managed to kill some white mobs along the way to getting out alive - although it took forever).
If I manage it, that would be a screenshot for the ages ... but running self found, without allowing myself to farm or grind, I'd have to be the luckiest person alive to drop gear that would allow that. I don't even think minimally necessary gear for MP10 inferno A1 can drop in Hell.
