It is here that King [[Varian Wrynn]] resides, along with his son [[Anduin Wrynn]]. The [[keep]] (or [[castle]]){{cite|LG|129, 133, 141, 148, 166, 186, 192}} is also the location of an extensive [[Royal Library]] where nobles and scholars from across the known world research various topics. Whispers of corruption and infiltration among the higher echelons of Stormwind power have recently arisen, although none dare speak too loudly of these accusations for fear of imprisonment. There are a number of [[Stormwind Royal Guard]]s stationed within the halls.
This mighty keep sits watch over Stormwind atop the cliffs north of the city. It houses the king himself and many of the city’s nobles. It was designed with the thought of another invasion in mind: if the city fell to an army vaster than it could handle, the keep itself becomes a means of escape, with several secret tunnels entombed deep within the rock.{{Cite|LoC|54}}
Stormwind Keep was entirely remodeled, both inside and out. The path leading to throne room is now open air and redesigned, complete with a grand walkway and a fountain. The throne room has been redesigned and the garden area before the Library now has a view overlooking a lake. Genn Greymane was also be added to Stormwind Keep after the fall of Gilneas.<ref>[ Frejya's (MVP) Cataclysm Compilation]</ref>
