While the fear that everyone would make a DK didn't fully come true, they do take up a very percentage of the player base:http://www.warcraftrealms.com/census.php17%, more than any other class. The number 2 spot is held by Hunters at 13%. Warcraftrealms drops toons not seen in a month - so in maybe 1-2 months we'll have a more solid 'stable' picture - able to see who stuck with their DK and who went back to their whatever.

You also checked toons from level 10 to level 80. A scan of just level 80 characters shows paladins in the lead, and warriors in a dead heat with DK's. (Since other surveys that crawled the Armory often come up with warriors as the most played class, it's interesting to see them dethroned by paladins and DK's.)

Sorry, Matthew, but if you want to really get down into it, choose "55-80" like so:http://www.warcraftrealms.com/census.php?serverid=-1&factionid=-1&minlevel=55&maxlevel=80&servertypeid=-1The results then are:DK: 25%Druid 8%Hunter 11%Mage 9%Paladin 10%Priest 7%Rogue 7%Shaman 6%Warlock 7%Warrior 9%So 1 in 4 characters that are level 55+ are a DK.Admittedly that doesn't discern how many people rolled and abandoned a DK.That was actually worse than I thought, and including levels 1-54 only hides the problem

As I go through, we see the numbers start to shrink at level 70-80 when the number of DKs ties the number of paladins.But that means the number of DKs has grown a lot, since this includes slow levelling pallies and casuals.I think the numbers will climb as more DKs reach 80. The number of Pallies will probably stagnate since I think a lot of the Paladin growth was due to the brief period when the Retadin was OP before they were nerfed.
