Ok, I should have added more detail, just to make it clear. At level 80 or before, I never ran out of mana once, that I can remember. Please go from Level 80 to 90, Solo, and come back and tell me that it's still true.
This is when I started to run out of many on some of my players, at around level 88 or so, in one of the harder battles.
My level 90 balance wizard solos pretty much everything, and she has never run out of mana during a battle. The only time she has even come close to running out of mana from a single battle was when soloing Luska Charmbeak (fizzles use mana, even though no pips are spent).

But for people who do feel the need to replenish mana in the middle of battle, making it a new spell is unnecessary. Just allow us to drink from our potion bottles during battle.

I don't run out of mana often. In fact, it has never happened to me since I was in Krokotopia. I can understand why lower level wizards could get worried about this, but I don't really think that it would be helpful as a higher level. Maybe they should make it, just in case. I mean, I am a level 84 and to be honest, I don't use volcanic shield anymore. I know I used it a lot and thought it was one of the best spells ever when I was lower level, but I just don't use it anymore. Maybe just make it for the lower levels out there

well that wouldent really work because to cast spells you need mana and so all the mana spells would have to be 0 pips

I think its a good idea. But you wouldn't always run out unless your hardcore person for health. And you could just collect wisps.

I really like the idea of mana x healing x spell because in winterbane hall i lose mana when i flee and it can be very annoying have no mana

When you flee you are supposed to lose all your mana. It is not annoying it is the game. Why don't you go collect some instead of casting a spell in battle to get it back.

Prairiefalcon,

I guess we just have different gear, and my mana is on the low side, so I get really low.
I could increase my Mana with different gear, but I like the setup that I have for my wizards.

On your suggestion on the potion bottles, I have to agree, I really like your idea.

I've never run out of mana once before, but it's a cool idea I suppose.
and cgsbr makes a good point - if you're out of mana you have to cast a 0-pip spell for more mana and I just don't think that's how the game goes.

Well today was the first time I ever ran out of mana, and it was on my weakest wizard. I really don't think it's a problem. Good idea, though. Have a wonderful day!
