Western Howling Fjord
|Sources: Wrath of the Lich King|
Westguard Keep is situated atop the Howling Fjord cliffs on its western side. It has a joint human/dwarven population similar to Valgarde. In the center of the keep is a statue of Muradin Bronzebeard, however, this does not seem to be noted in-game.
The keep seems to be an air base of sorts: it sent a shipment of ammo to Wintergarde Keep by the way of flying machines, but they were were intercepted by frost wyrms of the Scourge. The keep also lent some of them to the Explorers' League at Steel Gate. Finally, the Lady Lug, a commandeered goblin zeppelin, is also anchored there.

Since Valgarde was originally meant to be Arthas' original landing zone in Northrend, it is possible that Westguard Keep was meant to be Muradin Bronzebeard's base in Warcraft III. It is also possible that Muradin's base was Baelgun's Excavation Site instead, considering Baelgun was one of his officers.
Another hint is that there was here a quest in the beta to retrieve Muradin's helmet.
