Garona was never officially retconned into being orc-draenei. Caydiem was the Blizzard CM who first stated such, but that was never backed up in any official lore source (games, books, rpgs, etc) Furthermore, Caydiem claimed that before their corruption, Draenei looked very much like humans, but green.... Obviously she was wrong about that, so its not a stretch to say we shouldn't trust her word on this.At the Comic Con 2007 panel I had a chance to ask Chris Metzen himself about Garona's parentage. He said "We're working on it" Meaning nothing is set in stone, HOWEVER, since Caydiem is obviously not an official lore source, we should look back further to the last source on the subject: The Last Guardian where Garona claims she is half human.Furthermore, the main argument againster her being half human is that with the reduced timeline between the opening of the portal and the sacking of Stormwind, there would be no time for her to grow up, but we now know that the Orc Warlocks at the time had obtained the knowledge of, and use, spell that would force infants to grow old in a very short time to make more soldier. One of those could easily explain Garona's age...or she fell through a hole in the Caverns of time...who knows. Point is, she isn't Draenei.

Except she totally is Draenei, it's the only other race that makes sense. In the comic you even see a close-up of her forehead which has distinctly Draenei ridges. It also explains her longevity since Draenei are immortal.
