Note: Water currently works on DirectX 10 cards (GeForce 8 series, Radeon HD 2000 series and higher) through vendor extensions on DirectX 9.
  Note2: Enabling this CVar with an old graphics driver causes the game screen to go black

This CVar adds ripples to the new Cataclysm water (CVar waterdetail).
