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.

A quick note for those of you that keep your drivers up to date. There are some significant bugs in the 280.26 drivers that were recently released, including a bug that makes cards run warm. Avoid upgrading until a fixed driver is released.

    dem Draenei Girls are just too bootylicious. Yum!

    male Draenei are pretty ugly, yep. It is not their face, that's totally alright, but their nonfunctional, djinn-like heliumchest bodies. Draenei females don't look like the same species... I'm just a bit irritated by the Tauren. Thought there would be a lot more cows out there than bulls For the "strange ratios" : consider that it is most likely that all existing charscters are taken into account. So all bank-alts, all "one time played noob chars" (

    I would actually be pretty surprised if that were true. I'd imagine total population of dwarves and orcs would be pretty similar. Orcs are traditionally (i don't know how cata has changed things) the third most popular horde race, behind Belves and Tauren. And, unless i'm mistaken (quite possible) Alliance has always had relatively even population numbers, excepting gnomes.

    I will say i have noticed a larger number of orcs wandering around in recent months, but that could just be my server.

    seems harmless to charge 2200 VP for the t11 head/shoulder tokens, after all if someone is paying 2200 VP for t11 instead of t12 chest/legs they either already have the chest/legs, in which case they are likely raiding and wouldnt want the old t11 set anway, or they don't raid and want t11 for lols, which doesnt affect anybody

    chaud, actually you are wrong: female dwarfs do are the least played model. You didn't have into account that there are considerably more orcs than dwarves.

    According to WarcraftRealms.com census and having your percentages:
    Race
    Total population Female ratio Female population
    Orc 135,140 10.66% 14,406
    Dwarf 94,812 13.28% 12,591

    Phew, guess I lucked out. Just saw that a new driver was available but decided to not get it yet, as previous drivers sometimes had major problems as well. Good decision I guess.

    Edit: It was chaud and not Boub who posted this.
    All chaud did was talking about the "male - female ratio". Got it?

    Chaud: "You might think that Female Dwarves are player's least favorite female model, but you would be mistaken!"

    As it is written is confusing as it assumes all players choose race and then sex, and it is not actually true: many people chooses the whole combo. I clearly understood what chaud meant, I'm just stating that it is not properly expressed since it could drive many people to think wrong.

    I admit that it's a bit confusing. But he didn't state that there are more female Dwarfs on the servers than female Orcs

    Not exactly melt, but warm enough to burn your fingers. My screen turns completely pixelated.
    I updated to the 275 driver, and that one is bugged aswell. I hope they'll fix it fast.

    I agree, I have 2 at 85. They look great in mail/plate, but not so much in cloth imo.

    Male Humans suck, I'd expect to have more female than 33%. Pretty funny that Draenei is the only race with more females than males... gotta love the shaking ass.

    Thanks for the heads up about the driver, updated yesterday but now I'm going back to an old one.
