Ever wondered what the population of hunters is on your server?

Well why not do a Census?
Head over to warcraft realms census (it goes down a fair bit for me), pop in your server in the search box and hit the ‘Go’ button.

& you get for your efforts the most fun census map ever – also you can find out all sorts of extra information, for example what do I now know about Twisting Nether?

Well hey! Let me tell you:

  • On my server there are more hunters than any other class between level 10-70, a whole 15%, beating the rogue class by a whole 1%
  • To be more precise on my server there are 3, 638 active hunters
  • On my server there are actually more night elf hunters (29% of them) than blood elf hunters (only 20% of hunters are BE) – but it’s a bloody close call
  • Only 8% of all hunters are Draenei (strange cause they get a nice + to Hit)
  • But WAIT this means that 28% of hunters were rolled after BC … yup all 1023 of them (some of these were bound to be new players I guess?)

This all carries over to the level 70 community, according to the census graph:

  • The hunter class can claim to be 13% of the whole pool of level 70 toons, matched only by rogues who also pull 13%.
  • Of the level 70 horde on my server 12% are hunter (and they are slightly beaten by horde rogues at 13%)
  • Of the level 70 Alliance on my server 14% are hunters and they beat all the other alliance classes by at least a whole 1%

Looking at just lvl 70 horde hunters on the Twisting Nether I can see:

  • That 33% (197) are blood elves, just managing to beat the best horde race for hunters
  • The best horde racial for BM hunter being an orcs extra beast damage etc, well orcs can currently claim 32% of the horde hunters (193)
  • The best horde racial for MM being trolls bonus to bows making trolls fall in at 21% (123) of all lvl 70 horde hunters
  • Leaving the Tauren as the lest played race for a lvl 70 horde hunter

So I guess looking at that the new guy you run into in an instance on the horde side is quite likely to be a blood elf hunter o_O

Other useful tidbits: horde on my server are now 51% of total toons 🙂 – this is a big change since the first time I ever checked the wow census & I guess I can thank the blood elf class for it hee, and there is a nifty list of top guilds I can the approach for joining should I ever wish to be a raider (err unlikely that at the moment – RL has me by the throat.)

    I’d like to point out that 34% of all level 70 hunters are Night Elves. That’s a lot of bouncy ears.

    It’s because bouncy ears are cute >.>

    o_O The horde suspects that our Lady Sylvana of Undercity does indeed bounce in secret herself.

    Heee actually I must admit a certain fondness for the goofy (and floppy) ears of Blood Elf boys 🙂
