Well, extra mana is theoretically never wrong for a caster. (ranged chars rely on manasteal from items, meaning extra mana when you hit opponents physically) However, you should take the following into account:how about the "35 % damage taken goes to mana" isnt it good for a ranged/caster?
The only thing applying that way would be the sorceress' skill Energy Shield. There's a FAQ about how that skill works in the Guide sticky in the sorceress forum iirc.i thought the "35 % damage taken goes to mana" meant that the damage done to me, was taken from my mana not my health
thx for clearing up things for me
