The Maelstrom is a gigantic rift that was created when the Well of Eternity collapsed on itself during the Great Sundering. Located in the middle of the Great Sea—which the Great Sundering created—the Maelstrom appears as a massive, fierce vortex of water. During the Cataclysm, Deathwing was able to manipulate the Maelstrom to allow him to break free from Deepholm.
