Get your Warhammer Online statistical analysis on

If you're the type of person that just loves to eat up statistics like they were infused with more sugar than chocolate-covered chocolate chip pancakes covered in sugar, then boy have we got a site for you. The Warhammer Online blog Waaagh! has taken notice of a website called Waralytics, which as its name suggests is an analytical site dedicated to Mythic's newest MMO. It's interesting to note that it would appear that the balance between Order and Destruction players is pretty much even now, with a ratio of 1.3:1 in favor of Destruction. That's hardly as bad as it was back in the early days of World of Warcraft, when some servers were nearly 3:1 in favor of Alliance.

There are a couple caveats to this statistical site, however. The stats are being pulled from guilded characters only, which leaves out quite a few solo-preferenced players. We've gone ahead and made a handy quick list of the stats for anyone that wants to take a glance. You can find them after the cut.

  • Total players
    Order: 203,916
    Destruction: 260,958
  • Healers
    Order: 59,434 / 29%
    Destruction: 79,116 / 30%
  • Tanks
    Order: 39,705 / 19%
    Destruction: 58,398 / 22%
  • Ranged DPS
    Order: 65,562 / 32%
    Destruction: 68,974 / 26%
  • Melee DPS
    Order: 39,215 / 19%
    Destruction: 54,470 / 20%
  • Tiers population totals
    T1: 170,716
    T2: 183,526
    T3: 85,867
    T4: 10,853
It's interesting to note that pretty much everyone seems to be in the first two tiers still. There's always the case of alts, but as far as we know most guilds don't alts in Warhammer Online for fear of messing with their experience gain. It's hard to say how accurate this all really is without non-guilded players, though.WARHAMMMER --
