Damage cap

Manaburn damage is random 150-200% of your available mana. HOWEVER, there is a software cap on the damage by Manaburn (or maybe all DD spells) that SoE 'forgot' to mention. It is 9492. Don't ask me why exactly such a strange number. No matter how much mana you have - you only do 9492 damage. Which makes this AA all but useless for a high-end wizard, because you can spend your mana doing a whole lot more damage with regular nukes, except for some very rare cases (highly-resistant mobs, or if you must avoid aggro at all cost). Add here another restriction courtesy of SoE: one Manaburn cannot do more than 66% (not sure about the exact figure) of the target's HP bar. Don't waste AA points on this nerfed-into-the-ground ability unless you have too many AA.

mana burn is unresistable yes, the actual agro that comes from it is really only = to 1 point on the hate list. so its ok to cast manaburn early, but its always better to click it at the end to finsh off the mob. mana burn usually does about 2x ur mana pool about. most people around lvl 60 have about 4-7k mana pool so expect to do between 6-15k dmg with it

I just read a thing on Afterlifeguild.org in Thotts Writings about Manaburn. The only thing I can agree with is that maybe its should cost more AA points, but dont Nerf it. In case you dident realize after a Wizard casts mana burn they are completly defenseless, and they can do much more damage more efficiently using there regular nukes Manaburn has a horrible mana/damage ratio, it just does a lot of damage quick. As far as making it resistable.... F@ck you, you use up your entire mana pool, your left defenceless, and you dont do any dammage, Wtf is that. Sure a group of lvl 65 Wizards can wipe out a big mob or a boss really quick, but if they get agrro from something with no mana they will die. Its an exagerated example of where they Wizards power is, all that matters is mana, as far as im concerned its more important than hp to survival. Let us have our manaburn.(I would just like to note that im not a Manaburn Wizard, yet. But I would hate to see it nerfed because a bunch of sh%t heads dont understand it. Oh and if it is no more ports, ever. You helpless f@cks) I hold all who have not mastered my art in Contempt..
