So after running this quest: http://www.wowhead.com/quest=10227/i-see-dead-draenei
I'm considering RPing a draenei death priest but I would really like to know how exactly I go about this. Does anyone have any useful information on the matter?
I know absolutely nothing about it, but I say go for it. They exist in game so it's lore plausible.
Given the character dialogue, you can infer it wasn't acceptable to be a "death priest". One would likely be viewed as crazy or unsavory for being one. They may be viewed similarly to warlocks in terms of disdain and suspicion. It might be something your character hides keeps a secret.
Seeing dead people might be a keen character hook if you don't go overboard with it. Having your character see and occasionally be alarmed by things that aren't there could be situationally acceptable.
Another way of looking at it is taking into consideration the Anchorites (Priests) of Auchindoun, which was previously the Draenei's mausoleum city. The Draenei find death an "unfortunate and unsettling consequence" of life, so they hid their dead away; despite this, Auchindoun is known as a very holy site for the Draenei...at least up until the Crypts corruption and the Shadow Council took over.
This is a response to a question I asked about draenei shadow priests. "Death priests" aren't exactly bad/unacceptable. Or, I'm guessing they weren't back when they were a thing. NOW they're pretty bad, since the majority of them are insane.

Then an Anchorite of Auchindoun's the character for you! So long as you weren't 'corrupted' by the going ons of Auchindoun crypt, you could easily be a 'death priest' who's insane without being evil.
