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.
