Hey guys, we all know that roUGe's suffer from constant lack of mana. I tried to figure out our natural mana regen rate and how much equipping pets improves it.

Here's what I did:

I unequipped everything (pets, armor, weapon, pendants, rings) and used my skills to deplete my mana to as close to 0 as possible. I then timed how long it took to regain my mana to 100%. I repeated this weith armor, weapon, pendant and ring equipped but NO pet. I then repeated with same equips plus flap jack (which gives +8 mana regen) and then granite (which gives +4 mana regen).

I'm sure you all have noticed that we all regen mana at a slow rate for a short period of time then it increases. As best as I can tell, this happens around 7.5 seconds. I refer to this as the "slow regen" period. The faster rate of mana regen that occurs after this initial 7.5 seconds I refer to as the "fast regen".

Here's the numbers I got:

No Equips

Str: 20 Dex 86 Int 4 Mana 165

it took 14 seconds to regen mana to 100%

slow mana regen period I regained 10% (or 16.5) mana at a rate of 2.2 m/s. (take 16.5 and divide by 7.5 seconds (the slow mana regen period))

fast mana regen I regained 90% (148.5) mana at a rate of 22.8 mana sec.

Equips with No pets

Str: 60 Dex: 141 Int: 51 Mana: 635

it took 38 seconds to regain mana to 100%

slow mana regen period I regained 4% (or 25.4) mana at a rate of 3.39 m/s

fast mana regen I regained 96% (609.6) mana at a rate of 20.3 m/s

equips with granite (who gives +4 mana regen)

Str: 60 Dex: 141 Int: 51 Mana: 635

it took 31 seconds to regain mana to 100%

slow mana regen period I regained 10% (63.5) mana at a rate of 8.46 m/s

fast mana regen I regaind 90% (571.5) mana at a rate of 24.31 m/s

equips with flap jack (who gives a +8 mana regen)

str: 60 Dex: 141 Int: 51 Mana: 635

it took 26.3 seconds to regain mana to 100%

slow mana regen period I regained 14% (88.9) mana at a rate of 11.85 m/s

fast mana regen I regained 86% (546.1) mana at a rate of 28.74 m/s

Summary

granite (which adds +4 mana regen) increased both my slow and fast mana regen by about 4 m/s.

flap jack (which adds +8 mana regen) increased both my slow and fast mana regen by about 8 m/s over no pet equipped and by 4 m/s over granite equipped.

I think this confirms that the "mana regen" we see in the pet discription is mana regained per second.

The total time to regain 100% mana went from 38 seconds with no pet to 31 secs with +4 pet down to 26.3 secs with +8 pet.
