Manabond Manabond is a somewhat unusual gem in that its source of power relies on your current mana. Upon use, it creates a rune that explodes at the location you’re targeting. This explosion can either deal more damage or cover a larger area, depending on the state of your mana.

The more mana that’s missing from your mana pool, the more damage Manabond Manabond will deal as it converts a percentage of your missing mana into added lightning damage. The more full your mana pool is, the more area the explosion will cover.

This means that being adept at managing your mana pool becomes highly advantageous. For example, having slightly higher mana while clearing a map provides greater clear speed but when fighting tougher enemies, having a lower current mana amount is better.
