I'm no loremaster, and I don't really care what made Sargeras ca-razy. If you gotta blame someone, and the Eredar gotta be that someone, why not say SOME Eredar were eeeeeevil, while some others weren't. Like all the rest of the races in Warcraft. The Good ones included immortal prophet Velen' mages and warriors, and the bad ones included Kil'jaeden and Archimonde' warlocks, diabolists and sorcerers. Now this is the part of the Lore that Warcraft hasn't talked about: How the Good Eredar left Argus. We know the Naaru were involved, so maybe the Naaru followed Sargeras to Argus before the Good Eredar left home. Good versus Evil as Sargeras's Eredar and other demonic forces battled the Naaru and Velen's Eredar. Losing the battle, the Naaru outfit the Good Eredar with a shiftship and the knowledge of dimensional travel. Velen and crew arrive on Plymouth Rock, I mean Draenor.So the heavy magic of the Good Eredar became focused around the philosophy of the Light, due to the Naaru's "blessing" their burgeoning new culture. They then renamed themselves "Draenei". So far in the lore, I see Good Eredar having the classes Mage, Priest (Naaru-Light), Warrior, and Hunter.Years go by, and the Bad Eredar find the Good ones in a dimension next door. They corrupt the orcs, an indigenous Draenor race. The war against Demonic-powered Orcs causes physical devolution among the Draenei. The still-Eredar looking Draenei run further away, leaving the deformed Draenei to faction off and become "The Broken". The even worse ones faction off and become "The Lost Ones".The Broken include an ex-priest named Nobundo, and a leader type named Akama. Nobundo has a crisis of faith and has a shamanistic experience. He teaches shamanism to The Broken, and then looks for the Good Eredar Draenei, and teaches shamanism to Velen and others. So now the Draenei have five classes, Mage, Priest, Warrior, Hunter, and Shaman. Five classes is the average for races in WoW, but word is Paladins will, in fact, be a class choice for the Draenei.Now the Paladin class is seemingly anti-Undead, a race that the Draenei, in all its forms, has never met. As the Blood Knights are Paladins of a different color, I'm assuming that Draenei Paladins are similar. Merely Priests that spend a lot of time in the gym. Whether or not the Draenei Paladins will have "Detect Undead" ability remains to be seen.Next question?
