But they are counted as Humanoids in a classification system that has "Undead" as a category. So by categorising them as "Humanoid" you are also categorising them as "not Undead"....which is clearly not the case since, lorewise, they are undead. However if they were classed as undead (as, I believe Forsaken were early in Beta for Vanilla wow) then they wouldn't show up on the minimap when a Hunter tracked humanoids, they wouldn't be susceptible to polymorph, seduction, sap or hex which would be horribly unbalancing for PVP as the Horde would have a race that the Alliance couldn't track effectively (at least before multi-tracking) or CC reliably.The Druid's "moon magic" being classed as "Arcance" is basically for the same reasons - lorewise it's not arcane magic in the sense that Mage magic is arcane, but it's a necessary conceit for game mechanics (only this time for the reasons of specific school resistance rather than cc-ability).
