Season of Discovery has brought a surprising amount of reasons to be underwater. Bosses like Baron Aquanis in Blackfathom Deeps can force you underwater if you are unlucky enough to end up in a whirlpool, Runes like Hunters Sniper Training require you to fight underwater, and even crafting Void-Touched gear asks you to be underwater for extended periods.

With a lowered max level, we have limited access to the best tools, but a select few Classes have access to their unique methods of water breathing. Unfortunately, for most players, your best solution will just be an Elixir of Water Breathing.

I love MMOs of all shades, especially the nitty gritty numbers parts of them. You might recognize me from the Shadow Priest discord, otherwise I play a little bit of everything, especially games with support roles available.
