I know you answered Night Elf druids using Moonfire/Starfire but how are Night Elf priests allowed to use shadow spells? They are the most evil of all powers and it seems it is the only school that they use other than nature and arcane.

Game Mechanics =/= StorylineRealistically the only Priests that should be able to use Shadow spells are Forsaken Priests because of their new religion and Troll Priests that specializes in Hexes.As it stands now, even a human Holy Priest have a Shadow Spells in their arsenal. It's just game mechanics.

Oh and Shadow isn't evil per say. I think you're confusing Fel Magic with Shadow.Fel Magic is Demonic and definitely evil. Shadow is a Divine power that's not necessarily evil. It's how you use it. Light and Shadow are two sides of the same coin. Afterall, you can use the Light to call holy fire down on your enemy's head.It's like with Druids and the Arcane-based Moonfire and Starfire. Technically, they're not Arcane but game mechanics say they are. Warlock Shadow Spells are Fel Magic instead of actual Shadow Spells.

What really confuses me is not how they cast shadow spells, but how undead priests can cast holy spells? I thought that the light has "Forsaken" them...Yeah, I know its about game mechanics, but it would be more interesting (and believable) if this had a lore background.

Well, holy spells don't necessarily come from the light. Remember that BE paladins got holy spells without being blessed by the light. Granted they were draining a Naruu, but they found a different way, nonetheless.
