Theater of operations


The Winterax tribe are a tribe (or clan)[2][3] of ice trolls led by Korrak the Bloodrager. They are cannibals.[4]


The Winterax tribe were once part of the nation of Zul'Drak. After the Sundering, the Drakkari tribe continued to live in what had become the bitterly cold continent of Northrend. The Winterax and Frostmane tribes, however, later settled in the Eastern Kingdoms. Due to the ice trolls' unrelenting hostility toward outsiders, historians have yet to learn how these two tribes were separated from the Drakkari and came to live so far from the ancient site of Zul'Drak.

Like the Frostmane trolls, the Winteraxes do not share the unusually large size of their Drakkari brethren. The Winterax trolls have been invading the valleys of alterac and Alterac Valley and were fighting the dwarves of the Stormpike clan (Stormpike Guard) and Frostwolf clan.

One day, Korrak and his people simply disappeared, along with most of their belongings and supplies. The mystified orcs and dwarves concluded that the trolls had at last given up their home, which, after all, had devolved into little more than a bloody battlefield, and left in search of greener pastures.[5] Korrak has recently been seen competing in the Amphitheater of Anguish in Northrend as one of the top gladiators.[1]

It's unknown how the tribe managed to travel the long distance across the sea and land to Zul'Drak, or if the tribe survived the journey since only Korrak is seen while the location of his tribe is unknown, but one can speculate that they have rejoined with the Drakkari. If they did join the Drakkari, then they too have likely been wiped out by the Scourge.

It's said death to Korrak would mean death to the Winterax clan.[6]

Notes & trivia

  • The Winterax are considerably smaller than the other frost troll tribes, using recolored jungle troll models instead of the larger frost troll models.


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.
  • The Winterax tribe may worship many of the Drakkari loa primarily, with their connection to snow and ice. Though trolls can worship loa universally.
  • While there is not a lot to go by, ice trolls of the Winterax tribe and Frostmane tribe may be a subspecies of their own stemming from ice trolls. In the sense that they're smaller on average than the ice trolls of the Drakkari tribe. Why this is, has not been confirmed. Though with the Frostmane and Winterax having resided in southern areas (Eastern Kingdoms as opposed to Northrend), they have became a smaller form of ice trolls. Possibly becoming a subspecies of their own, namely "frost trolls".
