Hi all, wanted to get some opinions of the current state of things as I am looking to come back to wow after 3/4 year away.
To give you a little background, I was a decent raider and a complete achievement whore, and when they removed the plagued and black proto-drakes with only a few months notice, I quit the game as I felt it was completely unjustified as me and my guild were only Immortal and poke in the eye away from getting the drakes (I am sure some disagree, but that's not the point here). But I can see now that these drakes are on the Black Market AH so I might just be tempted to come back.
My question is... how often are these mounts on the AH? and how does the BMAH work? is there only 1 item up for sale across the entire server? or will multiple items of the same mounts be up for a limited time? Basically what I am asking is how realistic is it for me to expect me to get these mounts? I am not so bothered about the cost (I can image these will probably go for gold cap limite, but more about the availability? Also are these mounts now account wide?
Also, what is the current state of raiding? when I was playing I wouldn't touch a pug raid with a 10 foot pole, but I hear now that is lot a more common?
A lot of the changes I have been reading will suit my live right now (married with kids, so can't spend hours waiting for raids to form, then 4 hours raiding without moving away from my desk) as it appears a lot more can be achieved casually (the dreaded casual word, which I used to hate but now am)
Opinions will be much appreciated.
Thanks for your time.
