1) Play on hardcore mode, there is no gold penalty on death.
2) Get better at mercs, solid merc setup is only dying on some specific harder Ubers, no way you will suffer from resurrecting him on typical endgame farming spots or during early/midgame where you can stack on his amu Damage Reduced by X from affix and from MO's or by defensive/survival stats on easy available runewords.

not ALL your gold...only a piece of it. There are SO many ways to get gold in the game, Signets, rares, balance knife with runes, apples, IotSS, its frustrating to read another post like this :?

Kill a bunch of slain souls in duncraig and sell the loot. Shouldn't be a problem building up gold.

Unda, yeah, your tips for getting fast gold helped me.
It's just that I'm still dying a lot that I forget to always do that.
As my gear improved I'm dying a lot less though so that's good.

i usually just drop all my gold on the ground when im playing solo. Only problem is that it will dissapear after like 30min or so if you dont pick it up during that time.

if it's so easy to get lots of gold, whats the point of the death penalty? it's just a waste of time.
