+damage/mana burned? Edit
Does anyone know of any way to increase the mana amount burned? I believe +damage/+shadow damage just increases the damage done after the fact.. anyone try this with Power Infusion or trinkets?—The preceding unsigned comment was added by Dkyrin (talk • contr).
- I believe there is no way to increase the mana burnt. I am sure that +(shadow) damage from items or Spiritual Guidance does NOT increase the damage done. --bfx 02:58, 15 January 2007 (EST)
- How about critting? --Necoia 19:06, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
To increase the damage this spell does, increase your maximum mana. Against a Raid Boss, with something like 8 million mana, you are never going to hit the 10% cap, and will oom before you drain the target dry, and will thus be limited to 20% of your max mana as damage per cast.
1 Intellect = 15 more mana = 3 more damage done by Mana Burn. seeing as the cast time on this can be talented down to 2 sec before haste: 1 Intellect = 1.5 dps. compared to most spells for which 3.5 Spell Power = 1 dps, it looks quite nice for scaling in pve.
