Utgarde Keep (pronounced OOT-ghaard) is the name of a dungeon in World of Warcraft (as well as the first instance of the same dungeon). The keep is located on the shores of Lake Cauldros in the Howling Fjord of Northrend.

Utgarde is inhabited by the vrykul (led by King Ymiron), a Viking-like race bent on proving their strength to the Lich King, who will raise the most worthy of their warriors to serve him beyond the grave. Enemy encounters include vrykul, undead, and more...

The first of two wings, known simply as Utgarde Keep, was available for play at BlizzCon 2007. It is suitable for a 5-man level 70-72 party.

The second wing, Utgarde Pinnacle, is a more difficult, 5-man instance for level 80 players.

History Edit

The vrykul are a race of half-giant warriors native to the Howling Fjord located in southeastern Northrend. It is said that, in ancient times, the vrykul inhabited the land, founding a vast and prosperous civilization. Then one day, without warning or explanation, the vrykul vanished, leaving behind only deserted villages and abandoned temples. Due to the settlement of Valgarde, the vrykul have recently returned.

These formidable warriors have begun attacking Horde and Alliance settlements, and many of the vrykul are pouring out of the fortress of Utgarde Keep, not far from Valgarde. The vrykul's motives and their whereabouts for the past several thousand years remain a mystery.

Inside Utgarde Keep, the Dragonflayer clan builds massive engines of war and train proto-dragons to act as steeds for their raids.

Loyal to the slumbering King Ymiron, rumors abound that they serve the Lich King. They are dark and vampiric in nature, and tie into the titan creation myth that is slowly unfolding as events of the expansion take place.

Utgarde Keep is their main base of operations and is similar to the fel orcs' Hellfire Citadel.

Notes Edit

  • Utgarde Keep is a reference to Norse mythology — Utgård (or Útgarðr) is the abode of the giants. This is appropriate since the vrykul are a race of half-giants.
