I believe that we need 8 members to do the old 10-man raids for the guild achievements. I seem to vaguely recall a mention that 25-man would only need 8 people as well but I'm not sure if that made it out of beta.

Also, do 40-man raids still exist? How many people do we need for those?

Thanks in advance.

You need 8 guild members in the raid for all pre-cataclysm raid achievements in 10, 20, and 25 man zones. 40 man raids require 10 guild members. 5 man dungeon achievements require 4.

And, with the exception of Naxx 40, yes, all of the old 40 man zones (MC, BWL, and AQ40) are still in the game.

Does it require 8 people to get the personal achievement also? or can someone solo/partner MC for the personal achievements? – Maslow Dec 21 '10 at 15:15
No, my answer refers exclusively to guild achievements. You can solo things if you just want the points for yourself. – LessPop_MoreFizz Dec 21 '10 at 15:30
This isn't true - it takes 10 guild members to get credit for a 40-man raid. – lilserf Dec 21 '10 at 16:07
Thanks LeePop_MoreFizz, you really are the WoW guru ! :D – Delameko Dec 22 '10 at 14:55
Blue post on the subject mirrored here:…. It does seem that though only 8 are now required for 25-man, 10 are still needed for 40-mans. – Cory J Dec 22 '10 at 18:30
