  • World of Warcraft apparently has no idea what to do with Azshara, the Naga, Murlocs, Neptulon and the other bad stuff hinted to be around the Maelstrom. You would think the Maelstrom itself, being a whirlpool about half the size of Northrend with a city full of snake people at the bottom, would attract attention. You're wrong! The only mention it's had on the continuing storyline is that the orcs passed it and lost a few ships there.
    • The RPG Version shed light on some parts of the region, including a giant canyon, an undersea mountain range, and a city full of the Naga's hereditary enemies. Shame it's all going to be retconned out...
      • Not retconned, just ignored. The RPG is not canon.
    • There are (or at least used to be) quite a few enemy NPCs in the "classic" ''WorldOfWarcraft'' zones with a sub-type of Water, which no spell or skill affected directly, unlike the other sub-types (such as Humanoid or Demon). This type was to appear more frequently in the first planned expansion, which one can presume would have taken place in the Maelstrom, had the whole idea not been apparently scrapped.
    • Cataclysm will finally be adding more Naga involvement, underwater areas, and underwater mounts. Though the Naga Queen Azshara, who according to lore is the most powerful mage of mortal origin in existence, will still not be making an appearance. Some are hopeful that this is because they're saving a proper space for her in a later expansion.

Edit: Okay, Vashj'ir (the Maelstrom region) is listed as an AVERSION further down the page. This can definitely be cut without worry.

I would personally like to know why on earth the Water Temple is an example here, other than "Oh hey, it's a water based level that everyone hates." The criteria for the trope asks for a boring underwater environment, not one that everyone gets stuck on for difficult water puzzles. Can we go ahead and remove this?

How well does it match the trope?
