Copying stuff from Wowpedia is not a sin or even against policy. It isn't encouraged, but it is allowed by license. However if you do it, please use the {{Wowpedia credit}} template in a "Sources" section.

Unfortunately, Wowpedia doesn't appear to want to follow suit and give credit when people copy stuff from WoWWiki, but we still should. They also don't appear to want to tell people how to do it.
