Though one might assume the two boats are one and the same, they have vastly different models. The one within Highbank is an icebreaker, while the one within Vashj'ir is a traditional transport ship.
When players first arrive within Highbank, the ship and surrounding grounds are under attack by Horde forces. Players beat back the assault and secure the area via a series of quests.
- Patch 4.0.3a (2010-11-23): Added.
