Blizzard has an article up with a detailed preview of Utgarde Keep, one of the new dungeons for the World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King expansion.
Utgarde has stood unoccupied in the Howling Fjord for a millennia. Now the half-giant Vrykul have taken it as their base of operations from which they pour forth to assault the nearby settlements.
The keep is Blizzard’s interpretation of the classic “impenetrable fortress in the side of a mountain.” Players can expect to encounter the vicious and fanatical Vrykul and the Proto-Dragons under their command as well as the dreaded Scourge.
The keep is described as a “starter” dungeon, and is meant for standard parties of 5 players. Level 70-72 characters can assault the Keep while Utgarde Pinnacle is best left to level 80 characters.
