The Iron Man Challenge

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?
Challenge Accepted.

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

Challenge Accepted.

Post on the toon so we can see it happen!
Hmm, this makes me want to level a class using only my fists
I tried this once...

Then I forgot about the dont die thing and jumped off a cliff...

LMAO

Awesome. Ill check back in on you often. When you get to 85, make another post in here.
Won't be to hard, now where are all those boars.
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.
pointless challenge.

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.

ah yes. Rule 4.

Then yeah. Probably not getting past 80.
