How exactly would you make a WoW movie without CGI? Last I checked, there weren't many Pandaren or Orc actors registered with the SAG.
There are lots of make up and practical effects artists though.
I didn't want to belabor the joke, but there's only so much you can do with practical effects. Lord of the Rings was full of CGI too. CGI is not automatically bad.
True, but your suggestion was that they do the creatures in full CGI: "there weren't many Pandaren or Orc actors registered with the SAG." My point is that the orcs in LOTR were completely practical, and worked better than the CG orcs in "Hobbit."
