Following on from my Need to Know post a few days ago it appears I now have the answers to the questions of base mana pool and mana regen coefficient for priests at level 85.
Note these may change at any time before the patch goes live. I’m only posting these for interest sake.
Base mana pool
After plugging into Miss Medicina’s brain we believe that the base mana pool for a priest at 85 is 7540. This is based on the mana cost of spells, which are of course based on a percent of base mana these days.
Lets try that again.
Using Dawn’s screenshot below as a source we can see she has 23295 mana pool while naked and without talents. She has 199 intellect.
Mana from intellect is: (Intellect -20) * 15 +20 = 2705
So base mana pool @85 should be 23295 – 2705 = 20590
Mana regen coefficient
Dawn Moore came to the party for this one. She provided me with a screen shot of herself naked showing her spirit based mana regen.
The important numbers are:
- Spirit = 198
- Intellect = 199
- Spirit regen = 46
Plug these numbers into the regen formula:
Spirit regen = 3 * (0.001 + sqrt(Int) * Spirit * LevelRegen)
Re-organise and voila.
46 = 3 (0.0001 + sqrt(199) * 198 * LevelRegen)
46 = 8379.4 LevelRegen
LevelRegen(@85) = 0.00549
If you look at the regen page linked above this number is in the right area, although i’m surprised, given previous expansions, that this number isn’t a little lower. Perhaps Blizzard decided to balance mana regen another way, like getting rid of most of our additional mana regen sources.
