bump


...actually, why am I still bumping this? Xypherous is rewriting the damn game as we speak, a good portion of what I've said is based on the rules from Season 2.

The problem eternally with Mana Burn is that it will forever either be useless or too useful to pass up. With your example concept, a Warwick could jump a mage at 30% mana and drain them to nothing, changing a safe laning situation into "why am I in lane and OOM?"


I see this particular example as a bit of a niche case, albeit a really good one. There's nothing stopping a Warwick from doing the same thing with a Madred's Bloodrazor and outright killing you instead of mana burning you.

The difference being that there is no "Mana resistance" stat; you can build physical and magic resistance for Warwick and MBR.
