WoW Armory Data Mining: The Next Generation

The clustering of WoW Feral Druid forms (Bear on top, Cat on bottom)

Over at the Armory Data Mining blog, a plucky computational biology PhD student under the name of Darush has taken a look at some World of Warcraft Armory data and run some fascinating transformations to analyze the number of Druid players that favor bear form vs cat form when they play World of Warcraft. Note that this is inferred from statistics choices, it is not a simple flag that is set in the data itself.

I’ve been looking forward to seeing someone move beyond the common averages and deviations that are commonly performed on WoW Armory data; there’s so much more there than that!

A highly recommended read for anyone interested in the golden nuggets buried in that data set.
