Total, utter, unsubstantiated speculation incoming:The sanity mechanic on Yogg-saron got me thinking.I'm working on the following assumptions:- The next expansion will include the Emerald Dream (combined with Mealstrom, it seems to be a popular bet.)- The next hero class is likely to be a healer-hybrid, since a tank hybrid was used this time and a straight dps class is unlikely.- The similarity of many classes mechanics is a concern for the devs.Is it possible, maybe, that this sanity mechanic is a test for a more in depth mechanic they're toying with the next expansion. A third 'bar' for characters even. This would give another thing to be healed, and allow for more variety in healing. It could even effect DPS/tanks - powerful abilities could be introduced at the cost of sanity. Or whatever.The reason this crossed my mind is that the emerald 'nightmare' inflicting the Emerald Dream would seem like a perfect and logical place to introduce it.Just a fun idea, please don't think I'm seriously expecting it or anything :p
