Should we be able to hide our mana bars from others?

    People think it makes them "cool" and they love attention.

    I'm guessing the Group said to him "Dude, are you even nuking? You should be at 50% mana by now!" and he's sitting there at 95% saying BRB.

    To be fair I'd prefer a caster nuke enough to stay around 80% mana. Enough to go BURN mode on a named or bad pull if needed, but not so high that they ever hit 100% while in combat or between mobs.

    This is the answer. Burning hard enough to maintain a reserve in the tank if you need it.

    Why do you keep bringing up that POS vaporware?

    I've always looks at caster mana as the groups "Get out of jail card" when you have too many creatures or need to burn one specific one down fast.

    "Burn mode" really isn't.

    You also want to be cycling your abilities unless your group is unable to kill a named without burning.

    That said, if you're playing right, mana shouldn't be terribly hard to come by for any caster in the modern game.

    Then there are the people who when the Cleric say "oom! medding" immediately run out and pull another mob .. or six.

    Maybe they have colour-blindness to blue? (they don't, these people are known colloquially as a**clowns).

    Yep. As long as the caster never hits 100%, and is going low enough to use harvest etc every time they refresh, then it really doesn't matter whether they are sitting at 80%, 60% or 40% most of the time. A guy could be bouncing between 60 and 80 and burning exactly as a hard as the guy that is bouncing between 0 and 20.

    Maybe they are just trying to push through the pain barrier to see what they are really made of?

    yes... also should be able to hid your dmg from parses... but this is old game design.

    perhaps pantheon will be smart enough to allow personal player privacy.

    I doubt anyone needs to worry about seeing their groupmates mana in Pantheon.

    Well....if you're playing a wizard in classic, other people being halfwits may not be the actual problem.
  18. HoodenShuklak Augur

    Well how else are you going to get planar gear then?

    Anyone with a mana bar should be soloing.

    I still want to know why we don't have a function so that I can hide whether or not I'm wearing pants from others.
