Class and Spec Distributions

These tables show the popularity of each class and the popularity of each of the three talent trees for that class. Table 1 shows the overall picture, table 2 shows the distribution on PvE realms and table 3 shows the distribution on PvP realms. Note that the percentages for each tree are based on the total level 80 population and not on the count of the class. So if affiction warlocks are 3%, that means 3% of all level 80 toons are affliction warlocks. You can find the spec breakdown for each class on the talent page for that class. Also, the numbers are based on the active spec only, for those characters with dual specs. These tables are meant to show the distribution of class/spec types that you would find active on a typical server. You can find a detailed breakdown of specs and dual spec combinations for every class on the talents page for the class.
