One idea for a brand new expansion is to start with zero gold.
After crushing it in The Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King, I challenged myself to start from near zero in Cataclysm.
To be completely honest, its party my own fault for purposefully buying myself a host of vanity items, rewards in a way. And so I started Cata with 20-40k and the fear of god in me that I had disadvantaged myself.

I couldn’t afford the super expensive first days worth of farmed mats, and my own gatherers were alts far down my list of priorities. So players with crafting professions had a head start on me, which sucked. But I did have something they didn’t. A bad case of serious English Stubbornness.
