A vargul member of the Ymirjar.
The Ymirjar are the elite warrior caste of the Lich King, the victorious vrykul in the battle of ascendance at Jotunheim. They inhabit the city of Ymirheim in the center of Icecrown.
The properties of a ymirjar beyond that are unknown. It is implied that they are the worthy vrykul that are granted immortality in undeath after their victory, however, there are contradictions to this.
They are made up of the frost vrykul and vargul races, the latter seems to be the losers of the battle for ascendance. It is unknown why they are allowed to be in this group.
Adding to the confusion, some members are normal vrykul, some are classified as humanoid, and Kreug Oathbreaker is a flesh giant.
This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.
- It is possible that the Ymirjar are a multi-"racial" organization that grants no special privileges or powers beyond prestige and a title.
- It is possible that the "immortality in undeath" aspect is misleading, and some members just rot.
- It is possible that the term "Ymirjar" was applied to things that were not Ymirjar due to time and/or development constraints.
- It is possible that the Ymirjar's Varguls are just the invocation from Ymirjar's necromancers like seen in Icecrown Citadel and not real members.
