Both among European and American players, the hunter is the most popular class. Its popularity might result from the fact that hunters excel in using ranged weapons, such as bows and cross bows and can take part in battles from a distance, thus reducing the possibility of getting hurt or even killed. Hunters also come with the advantage of being able to tame animals and keep pets.

This class is almost equally popular among Horde and Alliance characters. Among U.S. based players, 11.6 percent of Alliance and 11 percent of Horde members were hunters. In Europe, the shares amount to 10.8 and 10.2 percent respectively.

The least popular class, on the other hand, is the demon hunter which is chosen by around five percent of all players.
