the big wirlpool in the middle of azeroth what is it exactly and what made it?

That's the Maelstrom, and it was created as a result of the Well of Eternity collapsing. The Highborne ended up becoming naga as a result and that's where their capital city is. Also, it's supposedly where Queen Azshara would be if she were alive (RPG says she is, but there's nothing in game to prove either case).

That would be the Maelstrom, created during the Sundering.http://www.wowwiki.com/Maelstrom

It's the Maelstrom. When the Well of Eternity imploded and the single continent was split into Kalimdor and what are now called the Eastern Kingdoms, it collapsed and took a large portion of the continent with it.More importantly, it formed the Rift, a massive rift at the bottom of the newly formed ocean. It's so massive, in fact, that it exposed the core of the planet (the interior of Azeroth is comprised of a region known as the Elemental Plains, and its core is actually a "sun"). This heated the ocean and caused a massive storm, called the Maelstrom, which is so fierce that it prevents most travel. It's been raging for thousands of years, and hides many islands and Nazjatar, the naga capital.It'll likely be the feature of an upcoming expansion.

That's the Rift. It's what's left of the first Well of Eternity. ;)

The Maelstrom. Big massive storm caused when a few meddling Night Elves with a tiny disk poked the Well of Eternity.Don't mess with giant founts of magic power.

That would be the Maelstrom. Created back when the Moonwell was destroyed and blasted apart Kalimdor into the world you see now. Blame Azshara for that one. ;)

It's called the maelstrom. Basically a huge storm/swirling whirlpool of death caused by the sundering when the well of eternity was destoryed to keep the burning legion from invading
