Mortal Conviction - Path of Exile

Mortal Conviction is a keystone passive skill. It allows you to reserve mana for one non-Banner aura skill for free, but prevents you from having more than one aura active.

  • Your Non-Banner Skills that create Permanent Auras on you do not Reserve Mana
  • You can only have one Permanent Non-Banner Aura on you from your Skills
  • (Permanent Auras are Auras with no Duration)

Dread Banner Dread Banner and War Banner War Banner are Banner aura skills. Other auras are non-Banner aura skills.

Mortal Conviction PoE

Auras are cast by reserving mana to maintain their effects. Mana reservation sets aside a portion of mana as unusable for as long as the skill is active. Having mana reserved does not reduce the rate of mana regeneration, so it will reduce the time taken for mana to regenerate to its (temporary) maximum.
