I know, I know, I already posted twice. I’m addicted to writing for you guys. And what I was just checking out, even though it’s three months out of date, is still just unbelieveably fun.
So, like, totally two posts ago, ya know? I soooo showed how I put those mouseover hotlinks in my posts. Really! I’m serious! And it wasn’t me what done it, it was that awesome uber geek Okoloth!
Ugh, writing like that makes my head hurt. Sorry.
I was perusing the rest of the insane data mining that Okoloth has on his site, where he makes mention of a data mining spider he’s running to troll through Blizzards’ Armory page and collect data on all of us… all the time. Damn, it’s the man! THE MAN!!!
At first, I thought he was just tracking active players, server populations, etc. Turns out he has been tracking FAR more than that.
In particular, he wrote this report that breaks down, as of 30 July 2007, the total amount of active level 70 druids across the entire WoW server base, everywhere. He then analyzed us based on spec, gear breakdown, everything. Did it to hunters in an earlier post, too. How many folks use the Stylin’ Purple Hat? How many are Exalted with Netherdrake rep?
Seriously… do yourself a favor, and go read this. It is just amazing…
For the record… his data shows a total of 5592 active Druids across all WoW Realms as of 30 July 2007… with Balance 10%, Restoration 30.08%, and Feral a whopping 59.92%! Woot! We shall rise and overcome, my Feral brothers and sisters!
