The World Sea is a geographical area of the Age of Legends. It is described by Ishamael as being analogous to the Aryth Ocean of the Third Age, suggesting that the World Sea was the largest and most extensive ocean of the Age of Legends. Interestingly, at one point an inhabitant of Seanchan also refers to the Aryth Ocean as the World Sea (instead of the traditional Seanchan name, the Eastern Sea), indicating that Seanchan culture at some point adopted the alternate term.[1]

It is possible that it was a large ocean surrounding the continent(s) that the people lived on, like that surrounding Pangaea.
