It's shocking to see how much the tables have turned since pre-BC. I remember looking at these charts back in 2005 and Hunters/Rogues were the overwhelming majority, with Paladins, Warlocks, and Druids dead last. Two of those classes are enjoying a renaissance, with Warlocks remaining a bastard child for now. I think the swarms of Death Knights can be attributed to the fact that they start at 55. Players switching realms, switching mains, looking for the next big thing, all switched to DK in the beginning months of WOTLK. I'm sure a good number of them have moved on, but it stands that it's much easier to go 55-80 than 1-80. If every class could be begun at 55 now, I think there would be an enormous shift of these numbers with Magi and Warriors taking the top spot. The fact is, those two classes are a real pain to level, especially from 1, and many veteran players can't be bothered to spend the time.
