The Statistical Strength of Each Faction

100 Draenei Death Knight

Hi guys, I am putting together some basic stats as to each factions strength at the current moment in MOP and I was hoping some lore nerds would be able to help me out.

Each Race needs a 1-10 rating(not ranking) on the following stats.

RACE

Population:

Average Male Strength:

Average Female strength:

Magic Talent:

Average Educated Intellect:

Martial Culture: (is there average Civilian more Spartan/Samurai or Farmer/Socialite?)

Machines of war:

Resource Production: (Farms, mines etc)

Comments: (any special factors you think the race would bring to the table)

Is split Gender's because some races seem to have a large Gender Morphic scale such as the Dranei, orcs, Tuaren etc. Races like humans, golbins and Elves should be the same figure. I didn't want to be sexist and assume those more Gender Morphic races would just put Men on the melee front lines and get their women to be healers casters etc so I just split them.

Heroes such as Jaina and Aces plays such as the Focusing Iris won't have an impact. I'm only interested in their general armies strength.

Remember to Keep the ratings on a SCALE from 1 to 10, 10 being the top race in that field and 1 being the lowest with a gradual line between them.

For Example

Tauren Male Strength:10

Gnome male Strength: 1

Human Male strength: 5

Forsaken Male strength: 5

Feel free to follow up the charts with citations from books, in game activity etc. The best argued posts will get their rating recorded for that race. I will update the statistics of those who argue their scores best for disputed areas.

Here's the Charts you can copy and paste.

Blizzard generally plays pretty fast and loose with these sorts of things. By not nailing down specific population numbers, they don't have to worry about running out of people (which would of happened twice over if we used the old RPG numbers).

With things like physical strength and average intellect, while they are generally a little more consistent there are always exceptions, caveats, and extenuating circumstances to consider.

Gnomes for example are physically weaker then most other races, but lore-wise they don't fight by physically overpowering their opponent even if they are a warrior. Instead they fight by utilizing their significant intellect to gain the upper hand through various tricks and techniques. In the Mekkatorque short story for example, Gelbin is at a physical disadvantage to pretty much every enemy he fights, yet always comes out on top.

And yet Mekkatorque is also bigger than every gnome. Heck, he's as big as most dwarves!
