Improved Drain Mana was a Warlock talent in the Affliction tree. It enhanced Drain Mana by adding Shadow damage to its mana drain.



  • In an earlier version, unskilled Drain Mana did not break crowd control, whereas Improved Drain Mana did. This has been changed, so that it breaks CC regardless of this talent.
  • The damage caused by this talent draws extra aggro, which may be bothering.
  • It does not benefit from spell damage or Shadow damage.

Tips and TacticsEdit

  • The extra damage bonus could be helpful, if a player used Drain Mana often. However, its damage is pretty weak and does not benefit from spell damage, making it less desirable for better geared players.
  • It is very important to note that this does not increase the mana given back by Drain Mana, it only adds a damage element. If you wanted to do damage while gaining mana, it may be more effective to use Drain Life in combination with Life Tap.

Patch changesEdit

  • 0100WoW Icon 16x16/0200Bc icon Patch 2.0.1 (05-Dec-2006): Replaced by Soul Siphon.
  • 0100WoW Icon 16x16 Patch 1.7.0 (13-Sep-2005): The Improved Drain Mana talent no longer does additional damage from plus damage items. This bonus damage was unintended and was a bug.
  • 0100WoW Icon 16x16 Patch 1.5.0 (2005-06-07):
    • Damage caused is now considered Shadow damage and is no longer reduced by armor.
    • Damage caused by this talent is now improved by the Shadow Mastery talent.
  • 0100WoW Icon 16x16 Patch 1.3.0 (07-Mar-2005): Will now report to the combat log all damage caused.
