Exploring Exile’s Reach, there are many sunken ships of varied races, above and beneath the ocean. Not much to find underwater around the Exile’s Reach Isle — but there are a few things that can be found, make you stop and make you think.
After nearly 20 minutes swimming around the isle, I came across this very unique scene on the beach.
A humanoid skeleton holding a small fork. The position of both shells (resembling a bra) makes it clear this is a female humanoid. Looking down — there are no feet, but instead a fish tail.
From that combined visual cue it is definitive to discern that this is meant to be the remains of a Mermaid. There is no such race in World of Warcraft. Seawitch Naga do not have fish tails. More like serpent tails.
As I turned the camera, a yellow fish (with blue stripes) floating near the mermaid caught my attention.
There is no animal or humanoid corpses anywhere around this specific scene. So the fact there is a single dead crab next to the mermaid — gives you a specific vibe.
I found other unique scenes around the Isle that do not register for me what they mean — if they mean anything at all. Let me know @blizzplanetcom via PM.
I don’t recall seeing that tower style before. Does it ring a bell to you? Titan, Old god, Drust, Shadowlands?
Sirah81 (Reddit) says the skeleton holding a necklace on this anchor-emblem door is in reference to Jack and Rose from the film: Titanic (1997) — played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
