Inspired by the WoW Iron Man Challenge, the naked hunter, pacifist challenges and the neutral pandaren who hit level cap... I propose a challenge for those who want something more fiesty than a normal levelling experience.
White Gear Warband
White gear only. No fine, masterwork, rare exotic, ascended or legendary weapons or armour, except for trinkets and aquatic headgear.
Fine trinkets and a breathing apparatus from karma merchants are permitted, as white versions do not exist. A true Warband member does not fear the finer things, provided they are earned through toil.
No transmutation other than cultural armour. A true Warband member does not hide gear behind fancy illusion, but may display the armour of their culture with dignity and honour. Gear should be dyed white (or as close to as budget allows) with details in blue permitted if fine trinkets are used.
Potions, food and utility items are encouraged. A true Warband member does not go into battle without studying their enemies.
No waypoint use. A true Warband member fears not the open road, whether it be by foot, saddle or Asura gate.
If you are defeated, you are disavowed. A true Warband member knows no defeat. The fallen are remembered with honour, but with the knowledge that they may never again raise arms in the name of the Warband. (Dead is dead.)
Start at level 1. No experience boosts, no writs, tomes or level boosts. A true Warband member knows the value of hard work. Food and utility with an experience boost is allowed as a Warband member should go into battle well fed and ready to fight with a well-maintained weapon.
The goal is simple: get as high level as you can without being defeated or breaking the rules of the Warband. Think of it as an unofficial Hardcore Mode/Survival Mode (hence the food: it simulates hunger).
Anyone interested? I was thinking of putting a guild together of people who want a challenge to support, encourage, mourn the fallen and attempt content together without making life harder for other teammates.
