I say you need to suffer many hours of farming to no avail in the endgame before you crack.

Bout the time you hit True Vault Hunter mode, maybe 2.5. You playing solo?

About fifteen to twenty hours of farming will will do it.
Not just one boss, in total, in general.
Or farming your specific character head from henry lol.

When you do crack, come on back and I'll dupe plenty for ya ^_^

I'm at around 3 days of playtime on my zero, and have never duped or modded (or recieved any such items). The joys of going 'whoa' when you see a legendary (even a relatively poor one) make it a rather rewarding experiance. I don't mind interweaving an hour of farming one boss or another in between working on missions though, so I still manage to have decent gear most of the time, even if half of it is 'only' purple. People who stick exclusively to gear they find on missions might have a slightly rougher go of it depending on their luck, but it shouldn't be too bad.

(This is admittedly easier for me as I don't have gold.)

I was almost getting ready to say almost the same thing ..I played 3 characters to 50...2 of them up to TVHM along with countless hours of farming Terra and The Warrior ..I knew what duping was though having played the first one but still didn't really have anyone to dup for me until I came to the boards ..I would say play the game atleast twice before asking for anything from anyone ...after that alot of people would be glad to help you out!

I still have the joy of going "whoa" when I see an orange weapon drop even though I have everything ...

Fine, more of a "Whoa, this is almost certainly going to be a much bigger upgrade to my equipment then I'm used to!" type of whoa, in addition to the usual "whoa, oranges are rare" whoa.

It is difficult to quantify the quality of "whoa", so lets not try to compare which is better. Point is, it's a whoa you (potentially still) get when playing without modded/dupped stuff, so it can be enough to keep you with it.
