The list of least popular builds come as no surprise at all. I've played all but the priest/discipline build (mostly because I couldn't see much of a point in trying it out let alone playing it) and they aren't, IMHO, as good as alternative builds for those classes. These would definitely be the trees to buff in future reviews/patches. I'm a little surprised that Wyvern Sting isn't more popular for those people who *do* choose hunter/survival though.Feral isn't necessarily an offspec/PvP spec. It's also the druid "prot spec". Any bears with an urge to tank will have no choice but to go feral if they want to be as effective as possible. So this comes as no surprise.I'm not surprised that there are Arcane mages (my ex-GL is one and swears by it) but that so many are arcane major. It's got some great mana efficiency and PvP talents in it, maybe there are a lot more PvP spec mages than I realised. I'm not so surprised that Slow is unpopular though, given most Frost spells ability to snare and root.@3, even though Dark Pact is on the Most Unpopular list, it's still taken by 90% of Affliction Warlocks, so it's not as bad as it looks there. The other three on that list are real stinkers though, according to the players.--Another interesting statistic is that fewer than 1% of each class have a spec that is less than 31 points in their main tree... except rogues. 2.4% of rogues seem to have "hybrid" specs. This would seem to suggest that rogues have some very good early talents in all trees - enough that it would entice players to not go at least 31 points in at least one tree.
