    Get a good MP-regen recipe from the AH and you won't have to worry again about your mp...
    Start using your gold for useful things people...

    The issue with the mp cost is that skills eat up way too much mana and mana regen is near non-existent.
    Yes sure, you have the mp regen foods that help with this issue somewhat and yes you have the healer npc in town that will gladly give you a nice heal.

    The thing is, there is no free way of getting this mana back. Its either you waste time on gathering mats for pots/foods, or waste money for recipes on these items (if you're not lucky getting the recipes from the dailies). And chances are, you'll waste pots on trying to get a hold of mats that drop from mobs.
    Overall, it's not very efficient. A mediation skill of some sort would at least help.

    I agree,having no MP regen is ridiculous. This game is almost unplayable because of that simple fact. Why should I have to buy 1000 mp pots or farm for mats all day for simple potions? This is another simple fix that they must do!

    spend your soul coins on mana pots by Remedy Dealer. That's all they are worth for when you reach lvl 40+.

    as a mage, i have 10k mp, without my buff..i make my own pots and buy from the npc too. The mana regen is nuts, and you say just reg attack, yea and then everyone fusses because you aren't really helping...I waste so much time and money on mp pots and food and I always run out, especially when I'm doing something that requires my aoes. They do need to do something to help with it.

    I'm level 40+ and don't have a use for normal gold. I only need soul gold.

    Yep and they are pretty much just as effective as elixers, just takes 3 seconds longer to finish the effect.

    My MP pots are #4 on my keyboard... cause its part of my dps rotation, sad... *sigh* It is getting old fast... Wonder when GW2 comes out.

    I've seen people say that mp usage and regen is being looked at by PW, but I don't believe it.

    People should probably get used to it or start looking for new games.

    You are a bard not a vampire, mage or Priest.

    Play any one of these especially mage up to 40 and tell me if you can sing that same story.

    play a bard and tell me the same :)
    Bard is amongst the most mana consuming class as we spam the most skills with no cooldown depending on spec.

    There's no need to troll. It basically boils down to this:

    Farming the **** needed to make mana potions isn't hard at all, but it is time consuming and not exactly very exciting. Strictly from a design perspective, mana (in just about every MMO) is a dated mechanic that is rarely implemented very well; it's really just a throwback from early console RPGs. In this game's early levels, mana borders on irrelevant, but I'm seeing at 30+, it's just annoying.

    In other MMOs, other more modern resources are used, such as rage (goes up when hit or slowly over time) or energy (refills quickly). The ability costs for these never increase, nor do the size of the fairly small resource pools.

    In FW, mana does not serve as a limiting resource really at all because mana potions have a very small cooldown and refill quite a bit. You could literally remove mana from this game and, aside from the need to farm up mana potions before every instance, little would change.

    Actually, it is still a limiting factor if you consider the rate at which you consume mana pots.
    You can only consume so many mana pots in a day before you either run out, run out of the mats needed for them, the energy/vigor needed to make them, or the money to buy them. It's because of this you have nubs that prefer to auto attack mobs in GT.
    If you remove mana in the game, you'll actutally change it qutie a bit. You'll no longer have to worry about how often you can spam skills, and alchemy will no where be as useful.
