Just did all 3 paths in AC in less than an hour, 4g reward + 210 tears, WOOP WOOP! :D
How'd you get 4g. Did it on my new character the same way in about 2 hours and got only like 2 gold.

#1726349 Race/profession combos - Are you hipster or mainstream?

I was curious to know which race & profession combinations were going the most and least popular, so I created a spreadsheet with numbers and percentages. You can see it here. I hope you find it useful. I wanted to also add gender choices in the tables, but unfortunately, due to the limitations of the Census' charts, it's not possible to figure it out.

Thanks for the awesome spreadsheet, JohnFireEye. I hope you don't mind if I copied it to tweak it a bit. This shows which races are likely to "favour" or "dislike" certain professions. Your current spreadsheet doesn't factor in the effect of the inherent popularity of a profession or race, so naturally Human/X combos topped the charts. I thought it'd be interesting to see how much more/less likely you are to choose a profession if you choose a certain race.

The spreadsheet is good if you want to choose a specific race or profession, but you don't know if your choice is "mainstream" or "hipster" for that race/profession.

Clicky clicky for the spreadsheet.

What stands out? The obvious, tbh.

The most disproportionately popular profession choices for races (i.e. trend-followers) are:
-Engineer for Charr
-Warrior for Charr
-Warrior for Norn
-Engineer for Asura

The most disproportionately unpopular profession choices for races (i.e. hipster-bait) are:
-Mesmer for Charr
-Elementalist for Charr
-Warrior for Sylvari
-Mesmer for Norn
-Ranger for Asura
-Warrior for Asura
-Engineer for Sylvari

Suggesting to me that:
-Charr are possibly the least diverse race in terms of classes (predominantly Warriors/Engineers?)
-Norn are second in this regard (predominantly Warriors/Rangers?)
-Engineers are predominantly seen as compatible with Charr and Asura race choices
-Humans are probably the most "mixed" race in terms of profession choice
-Few races have strong tendencies to choose/reject Necromancer, although the Sylvari seem to like them
-Similarly, few races tend to over-choose/over-reject the Thief profession
