1st Million - Paladin

If hardcore raiders are to be believed, paladins are the new priests. There are 27,538 level 70 paladins, and without further ado, the breakdown:

  1. 41/20/0 - 3821 (13.88%)
  2. 50/11/0 - 1776 (6.45%)
  3. 43/18/0 - 1516 (5.51%)
  4. 42/19/0 - 1164 (4.23%)
  5. 47/14/0 - 942 (3.42%)
  6. 44/17/0 - 821 (2.98%)
  7. 45/11/5 - 751 (2.73%)
  8. 45/16/0 - 726 (2.64%)
  9. 48/13/0 - 696 (2.53%)
  10. 0/49/12 - 576 (2.09%)

Well, well, well. The top 10 specs represent 46.4% of the class, and not a single Retribution spec to be seen. Apparently the 3,713 Retribution paladins (13.5%) left aren't much in agreement. The only one that's not Holy is in 10th place, with a focus on Protection. And speaking of Protection, there's only 3,981 Protection paladins (14.5%), and 19,691 pallies (a whopping 71.5%!) are Holy-spec'd. 153 paladins have no spec at all, and 4 people either haven't realized they got a free respec some time ago, or are so hardcore they don't need talents to crush.

Been Protection Spec Paladin, interestion to see results of your work so far. Thats pretty damm amazing numbers. Over 71% Holy Paladins. I personally have no interest in been a Holy Paladin or Healadin, though appreciate the ones that do so. However with that many people in that one spec you have to wonder just why. Most for raiding and most likely forced to spec that too to attend raids. Well i guess i'm must be a one of the 3981 since i'm Spec Protection Paladin and been a minority.

With over 71% Paladins Spec Holy can be easy to see why everyone thinks all were suppose to do is heal. BaH! Enough more good Tankadins and maybe we can change that a bit.

Nice work. Keep up the number crunching.
