World of Warcraft: Cataclysm promises to bring something very new to the game in the form of an entirely new underwater zone called Vashj’ir. This zone allows you to imitate Jacques Cousteau exploring the underwater depths, or given the number of bad jokes and puns in the zone maybe you are to imitate Bill Murry from The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. No matter your favourite undersea adventurer, Byron “Messiah” Mudry is positive you’ll enjoy your own opportunity to explore this expansive zone.

The thing that’s makes this zone so completely different from any other is that you essentially are flying around the zone all the time. This makes it very unique and different to any other zone out there since everything is in 3 dimensions.  Sure all zones have height, but to get someplace you either fly (no combat) or run.  In Vashj’ir you are able to fight at any altitude (or depth) you want since you do not have to be standing on the ground.  This makes exploring more exciting as not only must you watch around you, you need to watch above and below as well.

You can read all about in The Zone Aquatic – Exploring the Zone of Vashj’ir.
