    I concur.

    Warriors and Guardians are the most popular. Rangers and Thieves probably come in next.

    I see an over abundance of mesmers.

    However necromancers, I pray the gods of Anet help your soul....

    I have yet to see a ranger apart from bots (overreacting a bit, but honestly I never done a dungeon run with one nor does anyone I know plays one). Necro is pretty rare as well.
    I see plenty of mesmers and thiefs, although mostly in pvp.

    Wow I really guessed thief

    It shows Mesmer = Engineer < Thief = Guardian < Elementalist < Ranger < Warrior. Or something, hard to tell with the image being that small and blurry (Also no actual numbers). Was posted like a month ago so is out of date, but I doubt the numbers changed that significantly.
    Necros aren't even represented there lol. I know they aren't that popular but I love my necro and I'm sure the fact they aren't popular is part of the reason why I do. I've never been a FotM chaser and usually prefer to play classes most others consider broken or gimped.

    edit: It also doesn't surprise me to see Artificer is the least used trade profession. Fewest amount of weapons you can make and the potions are not at all popular. I was running Twilight Arbor the other day with a pug and before we started I whipped up a couple of stacks of Potent Nightmare Court slaying potions. When we got in the dungeon, I asked my group if anyone wanted some and they were like nah, that's ok. I then commented about how artificing was such a bad tradeskill that I couldn't even give what I make away lol.

    Necros are in the one posted a few posts up.. more than both mes/eng. I see a ton of them in sPvP. I got my mes to 80 and I can see why it's an unpopular class, it wasn't very good for solo PvEing. I was full power/prec/critdmg all the way to 80 and some places I was killing stuff so slowly that it would respawn as I was killing :/ Compare that to warrior where I could just pull 5 mobs and kill them all in 5 seconds.

    I agree artificer is crap. I got it to 400 and it was just a massive gold loss the entire way.

    Looking at that other image on the site, is there actually a mystic forge recipe that I can use with my copious amounts of butter?

    Seems like the class I see least often is Engineers... but reguardless the poll seems a bit cheapened by the fact that you only included 1/2 the classes, only reason to do something like that would be if the poll is more for you to pick a class you think you may like but want the least amount of other people playing, in which case the poll should have stated "Of these 4 classes which seems the least played".

    Anyways all classes have a good chunk of people playing and even the least picked class is not that far behind the rest of the pack.

    not at all. I did not add Warr / Guardian / Ranger because on my server there are ZILLIONS of them.

    It really depends on which part of the game you play, for example in PvE there are not many mesmers, in sPvP there are billions of them.
