    If they'd ever implement something like an "Athletics" skill line (passives only obviously) it could include faster swimming. But other than that... it' fine as it is.

      The usual statement about underwater is "can't happen on this game engine". And the older the engine gets, the less likely it is to happen....

      I would prefer if they just increased swim speed, being a trainable skill would be fine as long as it's done better than the horse trainings. 10 levels would be quite enough. If we're doing this, Argonians should get a bonus to their base swim speed too.

      Swimming is just a very minor part of the game - a bit more when exploring a new zone, but then it's only rarely more than a 2 second swim.
      There are more important things to change.

      ...only if a future update ever incorporates an underwater world with a new Aqua class, new skill lines, new gear sets that include snorkels and flippers, a range of submersibles, and a whole host of cosmetic paraphernalia such as whale-bone hats and fish themed footwear.

      It's fine like it is and would mess with the Argonian racial. I just wish mounts could swim, being dismounted in what appears to be ankle deep water is annoying.

      Swimming underwater with combat, special underwater abilities, animations, swim faster using sprint, dodging becomes flipping, and beable to defeat the slaughter fish.

      Yes please.

      Or at least give ability to swim faster by sprinting.
