WoWRanks.io mainly deals with reading out various data from the arsenal and converting it into various statistics. The recently published data clearly shows which pacts are most popular for which play styles – and there are pretty clear winners.

For most players, WoW Shadowlands makes the big decision: Which pact does your hero join? The decisive reasons are as varied as the WoW players themselves. Some decide solely on the basis of the performance of the pact ability and soul bond, others make their choice based on the appearance of the respective sanctum. For some, the focus is on the history of the pact or that the setting thematically fits the class. In most cases it is a mixture of all of the above.

WoW: Celebrities blow the war horn to attract noobs

Not only the developers should have hoped in advance that not all players end up in the same pact. Since the balancing has proven to be good and the remaining bonuses are not so decisive in the game that you feel driven to a certain pact, the players have distributed themselves quite well according to their preferences. No pact is overrun and no sanctum is extinct. That is true at least on the whole, like the statistics of WoWRanks.io show that of wowhead were processed.

With individual classes or roles, things are sometimes different. In most styles of play, there is a very popular pact that unites around half of the players in question, while the rest is shared among the other pacts. The greatest imbalance, by the way, is found among the Holy Paladins, where almost 90 percent have joined the Kyrians.

The pact distribution across all classes is as follows:


  • Kyrians
    : 29.0%

  • Night fae
    : 31.7%

  • Necrolords
    : 15.4%

  • Venthyr
    : 23.9%
