Rage Winterchill was a lich employed by the Burning Legion during the Battle of Mount Hyjal.[1]


Third WarEdit

Unlike most liches who were loyal to the Lich King, Winterchill was fanatically loyal to the Burning Legion.[2]

He was first seen during the defense of Hearthglen leading undead forces to attack Arthas.

During the Battle of Mount Hyjal he was one of the commanders of the Scourge and attacked the different bases of the Great Alliance throught the battle, after some time he began to attack alongside Azgalor.[1] He was killed during the battle.[1][2]

Caverns of TimeEdit

During the time of World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade, five years after the death of Rage Winterchill dark agents infiltrated the timeways and tried to alter the course of the history. They tried to sabotage the Battle of Mount Hyjal and the bronze dragonflight sent adventurers to prevent it,[4] and also they could kill Rage Winterchill. At the same moment, Akama was trying to defeat Illidan but he needed the phylactery of Rage Winterchill that was destroyed during the Battle of Mount Hyjal, fortunately some adventurers went to prevent the alteration of the time but also to recover the phylactery.[5] The adventurers fought against Rage Winterchill, aided by the troops of the Third War and Jaina Proudmoore, but this time Winterchill died during his first battle instead of fighting various times or alongside Azgalor.[3]

The phylactery of Rage Winterchill was recovered[5] and used so that Akama could regain control of his soul that was taken by Illidan[6]
