This is the earth realm beneath the Maelstrom, and the only Maelstrom area you can visit later on, once you've been there before, via a quest at level 80. A portal to Deepholm will open up at the Western Earthshrine in Orgrimmar or the Eastern Earthshrine in Stormwind City.
This is an island in the Great Sea near the Maelstrom. You can't reach this isle, and will only see it when playing a goblin , as their storyline starts here (except when you are a Death Knight Goblin, in which case the starting area is different).
The Lost Isles Edit
These are a group of islands located south of Azshara and north of Durotar. You can't reach these isles, and will only see it when playing a goblin, as their storyline plays out here after fleeing Kezan.
This is the large whirlpool in the middle of the great sea. you normally can't reach this, but you be there during one quest, when you go to deepholm.
