Partially correct Decayedmatter, it DOES drain 50 mana a wave, does NOT give it to caster. I believe this is considered 'mana drain' vs. 'mana syphon'

Maelstrom of Electricity vs. Manastorm
# Jun 16 2004 at 2:20 PM Rating: Decent
I don't understand why they made Maelstrom of Electricity. Manastorm is available one level earlier, and has the SAME EXACT STATS (same resist check, same cast/recast time, same range) PLUS it has the mana burn effect. Also, Manastorm costs 48 less mana to cast. Knowing this, why would anyone spend a single copper on Maelstrom of Electricity?? Why did they even make this spell to begin with??

Because MoE is 3 waves of damage where Manastorm is only 1.

This is currently not true. Manastorm does indeed hit for 3 waves making it superior to both Sirocco and Maelstrom of Electricity in terms of mana:damage ratio (plus the added mana drain effect).
once rumored or submitted on another web page it seems
