Steamwheedle Port flooded
Destroyed, flooded by the Cataclysm
Steamwheedle Port was a port village on the eastern coast of the Tanaris desert, in the South Seas. Belonging to the goblins' neutral Steamwheedle Cartel, it was connected by a road to its mother city of Gadgetzan to the west, and also had a dock for ships to and from Kezan. As the Cataclysm was about to start, the port reported tidal waves, and was subsequently flooded and destroyed, turning it into mostly underwater ruins. Many of its residents have gone missing or were killed by the destructive forces.
Before the Cataclysm, the town had the following NPCs:
- Other characters
- Security Chief Bilgewhizzle <Water Co. Security>
- Yorba Screwspigot
- Prospector Ironboot
- Narain Soothfancy
- Lost Rigger Cove
Lost Rigger Cove is located south of the port along the shore. You can get there by either traveling by land through a small cave or just swimming along the shore.
In the RPG
This small village was home to a more sedate population of goblins and peaceful trolls, who spend most of their time fishing and fighting off Southsea Pirates. They had several machines set up to turn salt water into fresh water, but these worked only on rare occasions.
