I wouldn't be surprised if there are so many DKs at 80 because they start at 55. They're the most likely class for people to level to do more dailies, have two more maxed professions, etc. It takes a lot more work to bring a character from 1-80 then 55-80.

DKS still aren't exactly handed to anyone who wants one. It still takes a lot of time and dedications to get a character to level 55 just to earn the right to have a DK.

@offday Ehm... no?

Care to explain why that it's "errm...no." Or is that all you can say?

@offdayThe original comment was for people who already had an 80 and were looking for another one, not for new players. Yes you do have to level a character to 55 to roll a DK, however anyone who already has an 80 and is looking to roll another alt will likely be more inclined to play a class that gets a 55 level head start rather than having to start from scratch all over again. This is likely what Sephira was trying to say just not as wordy.

Yeah, but my point is that any random person who first starts WoW can't make a DK. Getting to 80 or even 55 still takes a lot of time and effort, so why shouldn't a player be rewarded for it with a 55 DK? Especially considering all the money they have put into the game, and buying lich king. What I said didn't justify a "ehhm...no." I appreciate people who want to comment and actually give an explanation. The other method just makes you look stupid, though.

@offday Getting to 55 doesn't require a lot of time and effort, especially after all the nerfs to content and the lowering of xp needed to level.Maybe it is if you play 1 hour in the weekend, but then you must admit that WoW isn't even a hobby for you but only a money sink.

@offday: I don't see how what your saying relates to my original comment. I was attempting to point out that the large number of DKs at 80 could be from people wanting another character at 80 for farming, professions, or maybe even just wanting a different playstyle occasionally. Even though it's on top of the numbers, it might be a big pile of semi-unplayed alts (even at 80, those exist. I'm sure there are a LOT more DKs at 58, but those don't get counted in a survey only looking at 80's).

I think your right to a degree. I created a DK to do the start quests, then it is now a banking toon, I mean, it comes with all those bags already!But there are still a TON of DK's at 80, being played normally. If you PuG any raid, especially Vault, you can have a 10-man have 5 of them in there, and 25-mans have had 8-12. Almost every PuG I run in for Heroics has a DK or 2. Everyone starts one, thinks they are the coolest thing, and then thinks they know how to play one correctly, leaving us with a pool of poor DK players.

I think half my guild has a DK with some sort of tradeskill on it because it was so easy to level it compared to a normal alt.Least played class in our guild though, we're even bringing one who's completely undergeared because we need it more than his fury warrior. Heh.
