Charts Last Updated: September 12, 2015
Hero Class Popularity in Patch 2.2
Class Popularity for All Diablo III Heroes
  • This chart shows data from all the Diablo PC III characters who have played since the Reaper of Souls expansion was released, through patch 2.2.
  • This includes all groups of Diablo III characters: softcore and hardcore of all levels, whether living and dead.
  • This chart reflects softcore and hardcore Diablo III characters, including dead hardcore heroes. See the Hardcore Deaths in 2.2 charts for a look at the survival rate of hardcore characters up through patch 2.2.
Class Popularity for Level 70 Heroes
  • Here we see the popularity for each of the Diablo III classes, among the level 70 Diablo III characters who have played since the start of the Reaper of Souls expansion.
  • The blue columns represent the softcore level 70 heroes, while the red columns show the living hardcore heroes at level 70. As seen here, some classes have very different popularity in softcore mode compared to hardcore.
Class Popularity for Softcore Characters at Level 1-69
  • These charts reflect the current popularity of each of the 6 classes in Diablo III during the leveling process. They show the class popularity by percentage as characters gain levels.
  • Click or tap the square class colors in the legend, to highlight the points of data for that class. Select any data point to see the exact percentage of that class, at the level range.
  • The Crusader is a new class added in the Reaper of Souls expansion, and it is the most popular class to be leveled right now.
  • The reason why the Crusader class seems to drop off in popularity in the last part of the chart is because that is the character level 60-69 range. There are many characters of all the other classes who are occasionally played and have not yet been leveled beyond 60, which makes the relative popularity of Crusaders lower in that level range. Most Crusaders who are leveled up to 60 are taken all the way to level 70, which shows in the popularity chart above.
Class Popularity for Hardcore Characters at Level 1-69
  • The hardcore class percentages while leveling is different from the class popularity at level 70, as seen when comparing this chart to the Level 70 Characters by Class chart above.
  • As in the softcore leveling popularity charts, the Crusader class starts as the most popular class to level right now. Since Crusaders are very likely to make it to level 70 and are a new class, proportionally there are few Crusaders at levels 60-69 compared to the other classes.
  • See the charts of Hardcore Deaths in 2.2 for data on the classes who did the best at surviving all the way to level 70 in hardcore mode.
Diablo III Account Statistics in Patch 2.2
Level 70 Heroes of Every Class
  • This chart takes a look at how many Diablo III accounts have one level 70 hero of each class, among active players that we track. This includes softcore and live hardcore level 70 characters who played up through patch 2.2.
  • There are three categories of accounts listed:
    1. The vast majority of Diablo III accounts do not have level 70 characters of all six classes. This large group of accounts is listed as Group Not Complete in the chart.
    2. The One Full Group accounts have at least one level 70 hero of each class. Many of the most active Diablo III players are part of this category.
    3. The small segment of Two Full Groups accounts have two level 70 heroes of each class, which means they have leveled up at least twelve heroes to level 70.
Level 70 Heroes Per Account
  • This chart looks at how many level 70 heroes are leveled up in the active Diablo III accounts, as of the end of patch 2.2. It shows the percentage of active accounts with a single level 70, those accounts with 2 level 70 characters, and so on all the way up to the voracious Diablo III players with 12+ level 70 characters.
  • This data reflects active accounts who have at least one level 70 character; the large number of accounts without any level 70 characters are not included. The level 70 heroes included are either softcore or live hardcore characters, as dead hardcore characters are excluded from this chart.
Hardcore Level 70 Heroes Per Account
  • Here we see the question answered: How many Diablo III players actively play in hardcore mode? This chart shows the percentage of active Diablo III accounts that had one or more alive level 70 hardcore characters, as of the end of patch 2.2.
  • The vast majority of Diablo III players do not play in hardcore mode, and so most accounts do not have even one level 70 alive hardcore character.
  • A small slice of accounts currently have one level 70 alive hardcore hero. Smaller percentages have more of those hardcore heroes at level 70, up to tiny group of dedicated players with 10+ alive level 70 hardcore characters.
  • The constant threat of Hardcore Deaths can alter this chart over time, as old hardcore characters inevitably die, and new ones are leveled up.
Paragon Level Distribution in Patch 2.2
  • These charts show how far Diablo III players had proceeded in Shared Paragon Levels, as of the end of patch 2.2. The data is from Diablo III accounts who had at least 1 or more Paragon Levels, in softcore or hardcore mode.
  • The Top Paragon Level Rankings has details on the specific Diablo III accounts with the most Paragon Levels.
Paragon Account Distribution in Softcore Mode
  • Of the Diablo III accounts that had at least 1 softcore Paragon Level, most had 100 or more Paragon Levels.
  • A tiny percentage of dedicated players were over the soft cap of 800 softcore Paragon Levels. See the current Top Paragon Level Rankings for the accounts who have achieved the most Paragon Levels!
Paragon Account Distribution in Hardcore Mode
  • The vast majority of Diablo III accounts did not have any hardcore Paragon Levels, as of the end of patch 2.2. Those who had at least 1 hardcore Paragon Level are charted here; the majority of them had fewer than 100 Paragon Levels.
