the worgen curse has a somewhat confusing backstory
"And all those exclamation marks, you notice? Five?
A sure sign of someone who wears his underpants on his head."
Without the Lich King's powers, her Val'kyr can only resurrect those of Vrykul lineage.
They can however, resurrect non-humans by sacrificing their life, as seen in the Silverpine quests. However, she has a limited number of Val'kyr.
I assume that her ability to resurrect Blood Elves stems from her experiments on Koltira. He never mentions anything about Orc or any other Horde corpses, only Blood Elves.
Well now we know what is going to become of hellscreams Kor'korn in the undercity. Undead orcs that will be something lol.
Maybe someone got their hands on frostmourne.
BUT, it's possible to raise other races, through direct use of necromancy. That's why we have Vrykul, Dragons, Nerubians, and even a TAUREN undead.
Arthas was a Horde leader, did you know?
Alliance dissatisfaction have nothing to do with Blizzard's writing but is everything about George Fisher and boogie2988's Francis respective factions.
There's a dwarven undead that is part of the royal apothecary society, but isn't in game. Can't remember her name though.
What about necromancy ? was that banned or people simply forgot how to do it because it was usually used by the scourge.
Necromancy is banned by the Kirin Tor. They kicked Kel'thuzad out for researching it. It stands to reason that it would be banned in the Alliance as well. Whether or not the Horde bans it, who knows? My guess is that the Horde probably bans it too.

Ner'zhul cast a plague of undeath - which had originated from deep within the Frozen Throne, out into the arctic wasteland. Controlling the plague with his will alone, he drove it straight into the human village... Over the following months, Ner'zhul continued to experiment with his plague of undeath by subjugating every human inhabitant of Northrend.
--Icecrown and the Frozen Throne (in-game book)
Through the course of his experimentations, Ner'zhul insured that the affliction would specifically target humans for “undeath”. Though non-human races and creatures (and even the land itself) were susceptible to the plague, it was humanity in particular that Ner'zhul meant to scour from the world. As a result, infected flora and fauna reacted differently--diseased and decaying, but not truly undead, and not under the thrall of the Lich King.
Hence, while undead representatives certainly do exist among the ranks of the non-human races, these particular agents are examples of undead created through necromancy rather than the plague.

Sylvanas doesn't need a plague, she just needs her Val'kyr.
She won't be Lich Queen, she'll be Val'kyr Queen.
Five Common MMO-C Misconceptions:
1. If I'm burnt out on WoW, the game must be less exciting than it was in BC/Wrath.
2. If Guild Wars 2 can do it, WoW should have done it 4-9 years ago.
3. Anything I don't get free is another way to milk the players for money.
4. "Don't hate me because I disagree" is a good way to shut down dissenting arguments.
5. GC is the root of all WoW's problems. Now that he is gone the game will be perfect again.
