A look back at the EverQuest 20th anniversary producer’s letter brought up some Top 5’s that deserved a second look.

The info-graphic that was created for the announcement (kudos on this..and moar plz k thx) gave the top 5 classes and races that are played in the game.

From that infographic, here are the top 5:

Top 5 Races

  1. Human
  2. Dark Elf
  3. Wood Elf
  4. High Elf
  5. Barbarian

The human as a top race was somewhat surprising to me, as I thought people would be much more inclined to play a fantasy race, as opposed to humans which, presumably, we all are.

Barbarians are also a surprise here, as their large size makes them less desirable.

Top 5 Classes

  1. Warrior
  2. Druid
  3. Necromancer
  4. Cleric
  5. Magician

No big surprises in the top 5 classes, as Warriors and Clerics make sense for standard gameplay. Druids and Necromancers also make sense as they are great all-around solo classes. Magicians rounding out the top 5 due to their self-sufficiency.

The EverQuest Show reached out to EverQuest and Daybreak to get a complete list of the ranked classes and races, but have not heard back at this time.

Here’s the full infographic below, from the EQ 20th anniversary producers letter.
