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.

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.

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.

NVIDIA Drivers
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.

    I'm shocked that that many people play male Draenei. Blood elves having more males is also shocking, it never seems like I see any male blood elves.

    Combining the data with the numbers from the wowcensus (for chars above level 10) we get the following percentages (of the entire population) for each race/gender combination

    Male total % Female total %
    Dranaei 3.81 4.18
    Dwarf 4.11 0.63
    Gnome 3.17 1.39
    Human 11.1 5.6
    Night Elf 6.95 5.42
    Worgen 6.25 1.56
    Blood Elf 7.73 6.31
    Goblin 3.73 1.42
    Orc 5.39 0.64
    Tauren 6.81 1.13
    Troll 4.34 1.5
    Undead 5.28 1.54

    On my mains' realm it seems like the ratio is more like 70:30 for male Blood Elves.

    Go figure.

    mmo-champion isn't letting me post links yet, but go to and then add /mLddq if you want the graph of these gender numbers combined with the wowcensus racial population numbers

    That's odd that female orcs are in the minority because the gear fits them the best out of all the Horde races. Female orcs look better than any other race in the game when in full tier sets imo.

    i dont believe those stats, i play on several servers and i see female orcs a lot - female dwarfs are definatly the least played combo

    It looks like I've made my contribution to the female dwarf higher percentage.... :P I absolutely love their model, and got 6 of them - 4x85, and two 50+

    Would love to see a race/gender/class breakdown.

    I've had females of most races at 80... dwarf, tauren, orc, troll, gnome, draenei, night elf and blood elf. The draenei was my main, and after server transferring, the other seven are sort of stuck at 82-83, along with a female worgen and female goblin. I did enjoy playing the others, but I didn't want to transfer all of my characters. Maybe if I ever get another account I might slowly transfer them. /shrug Now I'm working on a male blood elf to accompany my draenei girl on the new server. Both are hunters.

    If WoW's females didn't look ABSOLUTELY RETARDED with their gender dimorphism, maybe more women would play them. I only play dudes, really, and I'm not a dude.

    They also look smashing in leather. I've got four lady-type orcs, and the warrior and rogue look the most amazing in their gear. Robes do look a bit awkward on them, though, and not just because they get a pixel-clip boner when they sit.

    I'm honestly surprised by the gender ratios, especially for NE and BE.

    Found a problem in your stat. It should say:Blood Elf- Male: 0% Female: 100%Amiright?

    I faxfered my fem orc into a fem dwarf so I blame myself for their last place finish

    I'm genuinely surprised that female trolls scored so high, tbh.

    whos backside are these numbers pulled from anyway?
  1. Alixie's Avatar
    I always kinda assumed most female players played bloodelfs and draenai. Mostly agreed to be the best looking female designs, plus both races share the same body type and face type. Belf and draenai are just blue and pink reskins of each other. Which makes me feel extra happy when I gank them on my female dwarf, who according to angry pms, is "fat and ugly". Bwahahaha!
