Unless you're scumming for PISORF or trying for a low level boss kill in a normal difficulty dungeon, I can't think of any situation where an Orc would be superior to a Human. I thought they were fine before, but I suppose I haven't been following the latest bragging to know what the problem was supposed to be.
Interesting change to the bank; you could probably do quite well with a purist Tinker run now (not that you couldn't do quite well with them already).

Vampires really aren't that bad. They could use some tweaks so that they scale better to Vicious, but they work very well even in Hard.
Not to my knowledge. Orcs overtake humans around level 8 from what I remember.
