While we didn't get the full fledged Maelstrom expansion that some people were predicting, Cataclysm
still promises to have some water-related content, such as the Abyssal Maw, the elemental plane of water
. And where there's water, you need a boat. The recent Twitter developer chat
revealed that we will, in fact, be using new transports to get to certain places in Cataclysm
, and that these transport would be submarines, built by the gnomes
for their respective factions.
