"The damage output at max mana must feel like a substantial bonus, and the output at mid-range must be considered "normal." In no way, shape or form can this mastery bonus feel like a penalty. Popping your mana-return cooldowns must equate to a short-term DPS burst and not a return to "acceptable" damage output levels. The mid-range absolutely has to be the norm, and full mana well above that norm."That will take time to determine I suspect since I assume by "norm", you mean the new norm in Cataclysm and not the current. I strongly agree that this will have a completely different feel and mechanic than now. I'm not so sure myself that output at 100% will be perceived as a bonus in that sense since that's where everyone starts in a fight.In any case, it will be interesting.
