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?

  • No, my answer refers exclusively to guild achievements. You can solo things if you just want the points for yourself. Dec 21, 2010 at 15:30
  • This isn't true - it takes 10 guild members to get credit for a 40-man raid.

    Blue post on the subject mirrored here: wowblues.com/us/…. It does seem that though only 8 are now required for 25-man, 10 are still needed for 40-mans.
