Anywho, @wowcynwise was talking today on Twitter about hours played vs. how competent one feels with one's alts, and it made me wonder how levels:hours compared on my alts. I had put levels into the database, but not hours, because the latter changes much more frequently than the former.
This is how adding hours in turned out:
For the most part total levels and hours played parallel each other, but there are a few noticeable exceptions. Death knights get a big level bump from the free 55 levels. My lone rogue is, yes, 90, but the bulk of her hours played are from vanilla WoW. My shaman's hours played gets a similar bump from doing her initial leveling in vanilla and the Burning Crusade.
This only includes extant characters, since I keep my Altoholic pruned when I delete alts, but I think the highest level character I've deleted was a level 20 druid, excluding death knights that hadn't yet left their starting zone. (Prior to getting my Minfernal I had been checking out the low-population PVP servers. Ahem.)
Regarding how comfortable I feel with the classes versus their time played, the main exception to the order above is paladins. I haven't really played my paladins since Cataclysm, and some of their mechanics changed significantly since then.
I think it's pretty clear why I named the blog what I did, though. All of those hunters (well, besides the level 6 one) are marksman.
