The Coral Sea is a sea near Azshara. This shallow sea is home to an abundance of fish and underwater plants that illuminate the brilliant waters, creating an eerily beautiful contrast to the storm clouds that often loom over the area. The labyrinthine coral reef that gives the sea its name makes boating impossible; however, the reef has vast stretches that lie close to the surface, and even some portions that lie exposed. Only the brave (or foolhardy) would attempt travel along the coral, especially since murlocs and naga are known to attack those who venture away from the shore. Some night elves suggest that not all demons were banished during the War of the Ancients, lurking even now beneath the glittering waters of the Coral Sea and awaiting the time to strike back.
