Gender has nothing to do with paladinhood. Tyrande is also not a paladin, she's a High Priestess, which is an entirely separate class mechanic from priests, paladins, or any other such critter.Nelves technically don't have priests as they work in the game, since they don't believe in the loose conglomeration of ideals that is the Light. They have an actual, bona fide Goddess, Elune, so Blizz had to homogenize High Priestesses as they exist in lore into the priest class. Tyrande's 'class' in Warcraft III is actually closer to the hunter class we have today with a few magic abilities thrown in because she's awesome like that. Sentinels are more concerned with kicking butt than contemplating Puzzle Piece Jesus, and their religious culture reflects that.TL;DR: nelves don't have paladins because that's not how their religious or cultural systems roll. I'm sure there are a few nelves that believe in the Light and COULD become paladins, but for the sake of streamlining the class system, they decided to ignore the anomalies inherent in any race.
