We see debris fly up when we run, why doesnt water do anything when we walk in it?

Probably because trying to render that would blow up half the computers playing the game.

probably a very tricky effect to add for not much practical use.

Water is notoriously considered one of the most difficult things to animate via CGI for various reasons. Just ask any computer animator.

Liquids are notoriously difficult to simulate in any simple fashion. Since MMOs are played by a whole bunch of people, and often on laptops, etc, they tend to be on the low end of the technical spectrum. Make it an option? Why, when that money could instead be spent on more content?
