I want to travel one-way and look like I might be stuck with a RTW ticket. My finance problem is I can't afford one way as I live in the UK and its the start and return legs from there that are making it expensive. I would get a RTW ticket, but they are not flexible.

are there any return open dated open jaw tickets for example. London to Auckland returning tokoyo to London?

atm I'm starting in New Zeland and working my way up to toyoko one way from these desintations to the UK I've used up £1000 before any other flights and trains. I'm sure if an open jaw ticket existed it would be cheaper. I'm pretty sure there isn't as you do have to pay to travel large distances.

London to Auckland returning tokoyo to London?

I would look into return flights to Hongkong, Singapore or Bangkok from London and then figure out how to get from there to Auckland and Tokyo and back.

Also quite a few airlines that fly this route are the gulf airlines. Take a look which airline out of Etihad, Gulf Air, Emirates, etc flies to both Tokyo and Auckland. Then contact them to get a price quote for the ticket you want. Same goes for Singapore Airlines and other SEA airlines.

There is also a budget airline that flies London-Hongkong for 200 GBP one-way, that is the cheapest one-way flight to Asia from Europe.

And doesn't Bali have cheap flights to Singapore and Auckland?

If you're referring to Oasishongkong, they stopped flying earlier this month and are going into liquidation.
