I cant believe that a necromancer just said that ... it is a sad day for the necromancer class. FYI twitches are nice since a necromancer has insane mana regen. If you gave this to... say a cleric you would be screwed. Twitch is nessecary spell in certin situations.

So lets see. I am top 3 DPS in games. I am a decent off healer in many situtations. I have the abilities to do charms and mezzes of sorts. I don't NEED a Chanter... They are just fodder for agro.

And I am being lazy when I do all this and then am asked to waste my mana at a rate of 400 so the YOU get 150?

Yeah Right. That's lazy.

Better yet. It is smart. Clerics have to manage their pool. Other casters.. Forgetaboutit I am not twitching Mages and the rest. It is not lazy to not toss away 250 mana per cast for nothing. PERIOD.

The only way I could ever see twitching someone other than the healers, is if you desperately need someone CoHed, and the mage just got rezzed.

More often than not, we use Twitch to speed up the downtime between raid targets. Typically, the necros are FM and waiting while the healers, and others are still medding. The necros will amuse themselves, by making us twitch.

Rarely, during a long fight, we'll have necros twitch healers. We prefer to rely on Mind Flay, but especially when we are short clerics, and have to stuff a druid or two on the heal rot, a little extra mana can make the difference.

God a mighty talk bout some LAZY Necro's.
Let me just set something straight. It "IS" a necro's job to twitch the cleric or another person who is overloaded w/ a task (example a Chanty mezzing mob after mob after mob or multiple ones at same time. Or help the Shammy some cause he's slowing the mobs and casting Haste on every whineing melee type thats nagging for a recast the very second thiers fades.) But I will NOT twitch a Nuke happy Wizzy or Mage who can't control thier urges to cast HUGE nukes at the mob. DPS is also a Necro's job. But being a lev 70 Nec myself I can honestly say that you can do both at the same time. I can now (and have been able to for a very long time) Twitch a cleric who is OOM till im 20M or OOM myself and "Still" get back to FM pretty much by the time cleric gets to FM or very shortly there after. Nec's get a super fast mana regen over every other class and its nothing but lazyness not to play your role in a grp and not be that mana sponge.
can it be made?

I have kept an eye out on Kayne Bayle in the bazaar for this but no luck. What would you say the best bet for a camp for it will be? The only 56 that i am missing.

Can anyone explain this line of spells with a little more detail? If I cast this on myself twice, does my mana pool increase by 2000? If so, how many times can I cast this on myself and get the same effect? How long does it last? Does it leave when you zone or does it run out after a set amount of time? Thanks for any info you may have.

I usually only use these types of spells when I am sitting at full mana and someone else in the group is not. It is easy to get the hp back that you lose while converting health into mana. If everyone is at full mana I just turn off the hp to mana converter.

I believe you're thinking of Infusion, not sedulous subversion. If you cast infusion on yourself twice you would indeed get 2000 mana, but you'd also loose an essence emerald with each cast.

Sorry - this spell doesn't have a beneficial effect on yourself. It benefits the person you cast it on. They get your mana...you lose mana. I use the lower form of this spell (rapacious) all the time in cases where the cleric is having to heal a lot (or other healers). It's also really good to support a chanter who is mezzing a lot or shaman who is slowing/buffing etc.

I hope that helps!

the spell is for transferring your mana to another player... so you spend 400 mana to give them 150 more mana.

Which is generally an insanely bad idea (I can do about 3000 damage with that 400 mana), but can be handy when the cleric is OOM and the tanks are low on health, or when people are being rezzed and you're able to med to get the mana back.

Personally, though, in combat I'd normally use my own heal spells before I'd give mana to a cleric unless they're real close to having enough for a complete heal or we're fighting mobs that hit real hard.

I'll remember never to let you in my group as a cleric.

As my cleric, I was grouping with two necros (one later left), and we, for some reason, kept getting add after add, so the necros would cast twitch after twitch. For 200 mana and 215 hp, you can give someone 215 hp every 11.5 seconds. Powerful heal ya got there, buddy! For 1600 mana, you can give the cleric 600, and if he's not using CH, he can give the tank 2750 hp.

That's 200 mana in addition to lifetapping the hp back. If he IS using CH, only 3 casts of this will get him to the point where he can heal 7.5k hp, in about the time it takes you for a 215 hp heal. So if you twitch him a couple of times before the pull, and once during, don't you think that's a lot better than the healing you could give a tank from your heal?

You don't really get it ... the idea behind the spell is that since necromancers regenerate mana about 2.5xs faster than other classes that they HAVE to make the spell more expensive than the benefit. If it were a 1:1 ratio the Necro would regen that mana in 3 ticks. That's exetremely too fast for the benefit it give. I always thought that to increase the effectiveness of this line the ratio should be better but it should be made over time not instant. Maybe a 2:1 ratio of 30 seconds would have been neat.

Yeah but if the ratio were better Necro could twitch almost forever and the person they were twitching would have unlimited mana and that's not balance.
