As a 54 sk, I keep this up constantly. Currently I get 75 mana per proc at my level. Scales to 100. Also, this has a check to alteration when it procs, so I do get skill ups in alterations on proc.

All around great spell.
Somewhere heckling Fleven about updating quest info lol...

Previous posters seem to have a low opinion of this spell, but i disagree. I note that some of the posts are a bit old, so perhaps those SKs have changed their mind.

This spell nukes a mob for 50 HP and gives you 50 MANA.

Even if you have a mana regen buff like KEI, the mental corruption proc is better than any comparable lifetap procs. The reason is simple: mana gives an SK OPTIONS. You can take the mana you got and cast a lifetap - which converts that mana into hp if you want to! You can take that mana and cast a snare - or three - to maintain aggro. You can use that mana for anything! In contrast, a 50 hp lifetap gives you only one thing: hp.

Ultimately, 50 hp might not make a difference when the cleric CHeals you for 3000, but 50 mana could make the difference if the mob is aggroed on your cleric and you need mana for one more clinging darkness! A few procs of mental corruption can also be the difference between sitting on your butt medding between pulls and chain pulling.

Picked this spell up today for 6pp (yes 6pp) on the bazaar. Varied in price fro 6-100pp and there were at least 6 traders with it.

Just confirmed that this spell also drops on Xi Vius in maiden's eye...

Got it while searching for SoE... still nothing yet :-(

It's very useful. When my particle effects are on (bout never) the little skulls are nice and pretty to look at. People go "oooh aaahh" then I get out a spell that actually DOES something.

This spell is also a piece of crap.

When other SKs ask me where this spell is at, I simply reply "Yes I know exactly where this spell is at. The back of my spell book..."

yeah, it should definitely steal a little more mana.I'd say maybe about 100mana per proc would be reasonable, considering its limited uses.

The spell drops of Tarmocks in Fungus Groves...I have looted about 3 to 4.
