Bornakk - the latest addition to the CM team - talks about the change from 40 to 25 person raids.
The 25-person raid model has allowed us to create exciting encounters where the individual contribution of each raid member is much greater. Though the number of players participating is smaller, there are still enough people to create the atmosphere of a huge and epic battle. In short, we're very happy with our current raid model, and have no plans at this time to reintroduce 40-person raid dungeons.
Nethaera shoots down the possibility of Patch 2.2 releasing on August 21st... or does she?!
No date to give out for you yet.
Generally speaking, we rarely give specific dates unless it's a done deal and there is no chance of something getting pushed back. People tend to make plans around the dates we give so when we give them, we want to make sure they are as solid as possible.
Bornakk gives a brief but concise answer on what happened to guild banks.
Guild banks are still being worked on and are currently scheduled for release in a future patch.
