As those who have been around since beta know, the mana system has been one of the biggest controversies and ultimate changes. At one point, mana was per caster based on intelligence. After release, it became global.
I've never liked global mana. It is simple and easy, but it has always bugged me on a number of levels. I hate the idea that casters have to share mana. To me it should be a personal thing. If one mage exhausted himself casting spells, so be it. That shouldn't leave everyone else impotent. I might be ok with a global mana pool for strategic spells, but I really wish each caster could have their own pool for tactical combat.
How are people feeling about this system now that the global system has been the norm for awhile, looking ahead to what we know about FE?
