some of these posts are obsolete or innacurate so here is an update.

To craft:
1 x Bertoxxulous' Ink Additive - Bought
1 x Consuming Thickener - Crafted, Bought
1 x Fine Papyrus - Crafted
2 x Ink of Prexus - Crafted, Bought
1 x Quill of the Arch Lich - Crafted, Bought

Usage: (numbers are unfocused)
Must be cast on a mob with mana. Costs 600 mana to cast, and removes 300 mana from the target.
Each member of your group that has mana will recieve 300 mana over a 4 tic period including your self!

if solo; hate self healers? this spell effectivly costs you 300 mana to remove 300 mana from the enemies pool.

if duo with another caster: costs you 300 mana to 'twitch' your partner an added 300 mana, compared to 2 casts of Sedulous Subversion costing a total of 800 mana for the same amount given, AND it has the added bonus of removing the 300 from the mob!

for a group of 3+: the mana benefits of this spell are fantastic for example with a full group, it costs you 300 mana to remove 300 mana from the mob AND provide 300 to each member. thats a cost of 300 mana to give to team 1500 mana!!!(assuming all casters).

this spell resists at -200 against disease so casts well on most mobs, but a resisted cast will cost you a whopping 600 from your bank...

hope this clears up any ambiguity caused by some other posts =)

Yes, and No. It is a compleately different buff slot. If you are farmilular w/ shamans It is very similar to their group ATTack buff. IIr it is a 20-30 second buff that gives 600 mana to everyone in your group in that time includeing yourself. It has a somewhat lengthy recast timer so it can not be chained in the traditional sense. It will not interfear w/ your Lich line of spells. also a note the MW line doesn't land on alot of Raid mobs. But it will often land on a majority of raid adds. It isn't a very aggro intensive spell like our dots. and I've Often used this line of spells on adds being NDT'd ( no dmg tanked) and not once pulled aggro from the tank. IMO this is one of our greatest spells for raiding given the right set-up, w/ mana regen appropriately given w/ aa's ect. This is a far more mana effective way to give clerics in a lengthy fight mana then twitching, being one necro can sufficently keep 3+ clerics mana pools capable for 1/4 more lenght of time up and healing by MWing consistantly threw a fight, and twitching between if a heavy mana useage is required by the clerics. toss in a necro w/ a large mana pool, and you can also do a substantial amount of dot dps.

If you are 2 necro in the group this spell willc ost you no mana to cast (cost 600mana but it work on you so cost 300mana but if another necro cast it also it cost nothing)

and its a gain of 600 mana a min. so act like a 60mana per tick buff. Eve betther then Necro mana regen buff. If you can chain cast it no one ever go low on mana.

Mind wrack is alteration which most necro's have specialization in,

so mana preservation plus specialization means 2 necros would actualy gain mana as well as rest of group. not just free.

Saurom's post can be confirmed. for necs that hasnt used this yet, it is a group manadrain spell. It gives its mana drain to everyone in group. It has lengthy repop timer of a min or so, but its huge profit in mana, 300per person, at cost of only 300 to you. It cost 600, but since its mana drain affects you as well, it pays for half of itself. Will help everyone in group with mana.
This spell is Researchable

IT oughta be mentioned that this spell gives your entire group 300 mana including yourself. Since this spell is virtually unrestable it basically costs the Necromancer 300 mana which is nothing compared to other necro spells which is because of their uber mana regen.

unresistable? most if not all boss mobs resist this, had alot of resists in BoT at times in the old days. works well in RSS and such, rarely gets resisted there but i've found it almost useless on raids.

This works on just about every mob in the Omens of War expansion. If you use this expansion, use this spell all over the place!

What mobs drop the spell?
RE: Mobs?

I am a little confused on how this all works because the page I am posting on tells at the top of the page which mobs drop this spell. Do these posts come from many different places ??

i have seen it drop many many times on second floor mobs in Ssra, up near where the 2nd floor commander is known to spawn alot.
