View Full Version : Enemy magic users not using up mana?

I've always wondered why enemy magic users such as Torva Shamans or Dark Elf Wizards don't use up any of their mana when casting their spells...
They don't even lose it to attacks imbued with Mana Steal. Is this in place to prevent them from "running dry" and thus not being able to attack at range?
Why not have them flee when out of mana and retreat until it has regenerated or they have been able to recharge at a nearby Mana Stone?

They don't use it mostly because it would be another for thing for me to have to balance. The game could do it. In general they do have mana, but most of their skills don't use any. By default most of the casters would go into melee if they didn't have enough mana but they could be made to run away.

No chance of ever seeing this patched into the game then?

I don't have plans to at the moment, but that doesn't always mean very much.
