Finally got around to making a summary video of this. I did another budget run recently, except the budget was 0g
All gear and repairs had to be paid for with gold found in the run. Enjoy!
These were the actual rules:
All gear/gold removed from character at start
Buying from AH is allowed
No selling items on AH, since there's a good chance at getting too much gold! (I found a couple of items in the run that would have sold for around 200-500k)
All elites must be killed
The last rule I figured could be bent a bit, since you're bound to hit an impossible one now and then, I thought maybe a 25-50k gold penalty for each elite pack skipped would be a good idea (I had to skip one!)
You certainly set yourself some interesting challenges. Perhaps just dot point the restrictions of how you handled gear/AH etc edited in the first post give all those reading this a bit more context to your effort. Nice compilation youtube as well, I watched the first one when you started this challenge.
