What do you guys think about quest vendors? Is that out of bounds too? I did buy a dagger from the old miner. I figured a quest vendor is kind of a special treat and I earned it. Or maybe that was a rationalization ... LOL. He had a 20 DPS dagger and I was using a 14.1 sword. Couple more levels I can craft a ceremonial knife and I won't care.
We did the old mines, and when it came up - we decided the quest vendors were out of bounds as well. I think running it with 4 like we are is actually making it alot easier than solo because of the synergy we have as a team (CC ability) as well as more blue drops that we share with each other (plus when we craft something odds are that SOMEONE in the group can use it even if we cannot).

We did not start new accounts. Nor did we keep track (or try to) of what recipes we may have gotten over the past year and a half. Our crafters are level 10 - we discussed it, but ultimately we could not think of a good way to "make sure" that we didn't accidentally craft something we didnt natively have, so we opted to not worry about that.
I kept track of my gold started/finished to separate that from the rest of my account.
We started monitoring our gold inflow / outflow by taking a snapshot at game entry of the gold amount available, then doing it again at end of session and figuring out how much we earned that session. When we started crafting things, however, it became super tedious to continuously try to track that, so threw that by the wayside. This is one reason we decided to NOT allow vender purchases, however. If we really wanted to, we could go and just create games over and over till we had the best possible vender purchase gear. So instead, we said NO vender purchases, but you CAN craft as long as you use items dropped from our SelfFound Game mode during play.
As an aside - We made the decision today that we are not going to leave any of our 4 behind (myself, Jonk, TacoDog and Xarcos). One of us is going to have to work for the next couple nights, so probably no updates till that happens.
Jonk and I are probably going to create a different SelfFound group with different rules if anyone is interested in joining us while we play - feel free to friend me and look us up.
