Wintergarde Keep is the main Alliance base in Dragonblight, built on high ground, and serving as the headquarters for the 7th Legion. The fortress is under siege by the Scourge forces that had taken the surrounding village, while Naxxramas defiantly hovers in the skies outside of the keep.

The keep is well-protected behind strong walls and cannon towers. It is made up of barracks and an arcane sanctum.


Wintergarde was built after the Alliance Vanguard arrived in Northrend.[1] Upon arrival, the Alliance forces were welcomed by the people of Wintergarde Village, which was there before the keep.

Wintergarde Keep was enough of a thorn in the Lich King's side that he also parked the most notorious of his necropolises outside of it, Naxxramas, brought in from Stratholme. The villagers were subsequently overrun by the Scourge, and their settlement was turned into the Carrion Fields.[2][3] The Alliance in Wintergarde Keep were unaware of the existence of the old village's subterranean mausoleum.[4]

Following the war against the Jailer, the brothers Bronzebeard visited the fortress. Since the Lich King's defeat, the bulk of the 7th Legion forces have moved on to where they were most needed, but a small detachment remained to keep an eye on Dragonblight. They gave them a warm welcome at the keep.[2]
