I can't bring myself to sift through more than just the first page of less-than-intelligent commentary.The shift in numbers is plain and simple: anything class that plays as OP for a time will have larger numbers of people playing that class during the time period in which it is OP.Warlocks were amazing in TBC, and there plenty of them to be had. However, WotLK? Not so much. Thus numbers are down.Rogues are not nearly as EZ mode as they once were--while well played rogues continue to find ample opportunity to raid as they see fit (or pvp), the numbers are down because in general they are no longer a face roll class for the majority of the population. The recent fixes may change this (and to the skilled and dedicated rogues out there, kudos to you for sticking with it).DKs and ret paladins, while being taken down a peg or two are still exceptionally easy to face roll with, thus the high numbers. This includes tanking.This isn't to disparage the well informed and skilled players of each class--but to point out that water seeks the path of least resistance. Even I have a near 80 DK, which I use for farming purposes. It's the ultimate in face roll farming right now, why wouldn't I?As a healer I would be far more interested to see the numbers for the classes capable of healing, keeping in mind that all the healing capable classes can currently be mashed in with their dps or tanking counterparts in the stats listed.Possible to break this down so we can see percentage of classes as tanks, dps, and healers?

"Possible to break this down so we can see percentage of classes as tanks, dps, and healers?"Since you can't detect a person's spec with a /who, not on warcraftrealms.com.
