Stats - Character Gender Ratios
News has been slow and we've been looking at building random stats to keep you interested! We're still working on the juicy stuff but let's start with character gender ratios!

You might think that Female Dwarves are player's least favorite female model, but you would be mistaken! Female Orcs take the lead by a few percent margin in our poll of Level 85 characters.

Race Male Female
Human 66.48% 33.52%
Orc 89.34% 10.66%
Dwarf 86.72% 13.28%
Night Elf 56.2% 43.8%
Undead 77.4% 22.6%
Tauren 85.82% 14.18%
Gnome 69.43% 30.57%
Troll 74.24% 25.76%
Goblin 72.44% 27.56%
Blood Elf 55.05% 44.95%
Draenei 47.73% 52.27%
Worgen 80% 20%

Good things really do come to those who wait, or at least, exercise persistence and patience.

I should add that, unlike the olden days, you aren't leaving empty handed from any boss encounter, and you can spend the Valor Points you're obtaining to acquire even more powerful gear. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)


We Want Your Comics!
We’ve spent 8 years adding awesome community comics to our Comics section, but we’re far from finished. We’re looking for the best new World of Warcraft comics to become front page news on our site, and we’d love to have your help, whether you’re a seasoned contributor or a first-time cartoonist.

API - HTML scraping no longer allowed
This is important to anyone who is still scraping the new Armory HTML, as it will break anything that relies on doing so.

If you are currently in the process of porting over to the API and have not requested a key yet, please do so. We do not want to interrupt service for community sites that are following that path.

Unless you're making 1000s of requests a day, its unlikely you'll get caught up in this. This is highly unlikely to apply to blue tracker sites (Assuming they are doing it sensibly), or personal guild sites.

    The remedy for that is giving them any form of ship. That's how the /waggle can be countered.

    That's not necessarily good math...There's a lower percentage of Female Orcs compared to Male Orcs...but I'll bet there are significantly more Orcs than Dwarves...making the number of Female Orcs higher than the number of Female Dwarves...percentages don't tell the whole story...

    66.48% of level 85 human players are willing to put with the terrible human male model? Seriously?

    I'd sooner quit the game than play a character that used that model.
  1. Flaks's Avatar
    Human females should SO be in the lead on that list. Any serious PvP'er plays human female.

    BTW that graph is a little iffy. Its a ratio of male to female players, not the actual amount of players of each gender/race at max level. Maybe I'm just too stupid to have noticed that at first.

    This statistic is kinda not very helpful as it doesnt consider the pure numbers of every race played... thus i cant see how it can state that female orcs have a less popuar model than female dwarfs when it says absolutely nothing about the 2 races in comparison at all... But whatever =)
  1. det's Avatar
    Well that stat is no absolute number, it just represents the ratio male /female within a race. While 90% are male orcs, 10% are female. 87% are male dwarves, 13% female. But ofc if 2 million people play Orcs and 1 million people play dwarves, the ABSOLUTE number of female orcs is clearly higher than male. Just another way to skew statistics.

    Oh yeah..and more MALE BEs than female? Boy is my ear not on the pulse of the community.

    It seems that this is a poll of gender preference among classes by mmo-champion readers and not actual statistics from within the game so those graphs need to be taken with a whole lot of salt.

    Unsurprisingly Blood elves and draenei have the most gender parity..... GG WoW community.... GG..... *facepalm*I for one have both a female orc and a female Tauren at 85, I enjoy looking different from everyone else. IMO the female orc model has aged much better than any of the other horde sprites, including belves.

    So basically horde is a sausage fest.
