Yesterday we revealed that Blizzard would apparently be bringing a new 5-man Dungeon to World of Warcraft when they release the Cataclysm expansion, we are now hearing rumors of a possible underwater zone will be included, these rumors are backed up by some early screenshots.
Details regarding the underwater zone are still quite scarce, however information I recently came across suggests that it will be called Vashj’ir, apparently naga lurk in the ocean, to explore the depths you will have to be level 78-82.
If you check out the official WoW site you can see full details, Blizzard state that there are “all-new underwater travel and combat mechanics, several pocketed undersea caves free from water’s grip, two new five-player dungeons (Throne of the Tides and Abyssal Maw), and the first-ever opportunity to explore the remains of the once-majestic city of Vashj’ir!”.
Below I have put together a single image showing Vashj’ir, however if you check out the link below you can see full-size images.
