(Hearing of this is, in point of fact, how I met our Darling Ms. Tome of the Ancient. That's a win-win for us all!)

No gear enhancement(s), thus no Socket Gems, Enchanting or Reforging. Exceptions exist for class abilities. (example: Rogue poisons) 4. No specializations, talent points, or glyphs. This restriction also applies to talent points for pets. 5. No professions or secondary skills. An exception is made for First Aid. 6. No potions/flasks/elixirs (except those labeled as Quest Items) 7. No food buffs or other external buffs (this includes buffs from items and other players). 8. No grouping or assistance from other characters, even if not grouped. 9. No dungeons/raids. No battlegrounds/arenas. 10. No guilds. An exception is made for Ironman guilds (no perks) 11. No Refer-A- Friend activities. The intention of the challenge is that it be done without assistance. 12. No add-ons that assist in combat (try to challenge yourself and do the most with the least). 13. THE BIG ONE: No deaths. Character death for any reason disqualifies the character.
Permitted: - All mounts - All bags/containers - All quests (including holiday and daily quests)
I was going to try to come up with a twist, but thought to myself, you know, Matty, for once, just follow the damn rules. It's the Dwarf thing to do.
My technical question is this: because I have BOA pets on my account, if she opens up her mail, she will automatically get points for a pet. Is this okay?

Ironskillet is a tough little nugget. We'll see how she does.
