Yes, there are a lot of DKs out there, but the thing is how many of those are actually being played? I would wager a lot less than people think. That 15% number does not tell the whole story.Just speaking for myself, I have DKs on like 4 different servers that were rolled purely so I could hang out with friends that don't play on my home server. I have no intention of ever seriously leveling them. And the DK I rolled on my home server is a bank toon whose sole purpose is to make money for my real toons (I do quest on the DK, but only for the gold).And you have a lot of people who rolled DKs on the opposite faction on non-PVP servers just to experience the flipside, plus the people who rolled DKs when Wrath came out but then the novelty wore off. Or the people who started to level and then got sick of Outlands and went back to their mains. Or the way-too-many-goddamn-people-on-my-server with level 58 DKs who sit around effing Silvermoon City in RP clothes all day wangsting. Etc, etc, etc.I would really be shocked if the percentage of actively played DKs approached that 15% figure. Yes, there are way too many of them, but I don't think it's nearly the epidemic that figure suggests once you get out of Outlands.

As has been stated a number of times, the caption on the graph says "Class population at level 80."These are level 80 death knights, not level 55 death knights that someone made to talk to their friend, not level 58 death knights that someone made for a bank alt, not level 65 death knights someone leveled just so they could have a grand master in another profession.15% of level 80 players that have logged in within the last month are death knights.
