The Iron Man Challenge

85 Dwarf Hunter
1815
Some people complain WoW is too easy. Well, for people who want a challenge, take part in the Iron Man Challenge! I came across a thread from someone named Sandinhiseye about this, and it was fairly old. So, rather than necro it, I'm making a new thread. Taken from his thread, here are the rules:
1) No items equipped other than White or Gray items.
2) No heirlooms
3) No talent points- no specialization - you may train class abilities
4) No professions, primary or secondary, other than First Aid.
5) No food or water above vendor-quality white items.
6) No groups- no BG's, no instances, no raids, no quest groups. No guilds.
7) No enchants, scrolls, potions/elixirs, or glyphs.
8) No outside financial or equipment assistance (no gold or bags from other toons)
9) THE BIG ONE - if you die, ever, you delete that toon and start over at lvl 1
Any takers? If you're doing it, post on that character and we will track your progress.

I think this would be rather impossible in the new Cataclysm zones.

Is this a "do it until you die" thing, or "do it till cap" thing?

You get to the level cap, but if you die, you have to start over again. Its not impossible by any means, but it is extremely difficult.

Theoretically, you "could" do it, but you'd have to play a toon with a kiting ability. Hunter would be the easiest to do this with.

It'd take ... quite awhile, and I'm by no means bored enough to do it. XD

I don't think this is possible anymore, without dying. Soon as you get to Cataclysm zones everything will murder you as you wont get the huge stat gain from items.


Edit: This reminds me of the person that leveled to cap without killing a single mob.

I don't think you'll need to go to the cata zones to hit 85. You should be able to farm Wrath stuff to the cap.
