King Ymiron (Utgarde Pinnacle)
You invade my home and then dare to challenge me? I will tear the hearts from your chests and offer them as gifts to the death god! Rualg nja gaborr!
King Ymiron is the slumbering king of Northrend's Vrykul, the leader of the Dragonflayer clan who lies sleeping within Gjalerbron. Fanatically adored by his people, the now undead king has proven his worth to the Lich King.

to darkness and make him the Lich King's
Note that while we do allow minions into the ring with our Two Bosses Enter competitors, Prince Arthas Menethil
will not be in attendance inside the Two Bosses Thunderdome. As with the usual Culling of Stratholme mechanics, it will not be necessary for King Ymiron to "kill" Mal'ganis, merely to "defeat" him and cause him to escape.
