I read Archenassa’s Guide to Mana, Masteries, Mana Surge & Magic and still confused - especially - the math
Baring no crazy stuff from the other team - here’s the details
Yellow Mana Surge - 53% / Mastery 155
Blue Mana Surge - 49% / Mastery 133
Hero - Using Soul Blade 12 (Yellow/Blue)
Magic - 14
Using Sword Banner + 1 Blue and + 1 Yellow when matching gems
Without Mana surge
On match 3 blue I should get 4 Blue
On match 3 yellow I should get 4 Yellow
On match 4 - I should get 5 of what color I matched (be it yellow or blue)
With Mana surge the math should look like this 3gemmatch + Mana surge +1flag bonus
Now why I am asking is; it seems since I just upped one of my kingdoms to 10 (+1 magic skill) it is taking longer to charge on 3 match (I just did three games just to make sure I am not screwing up somehow).
It took me 5 rounds in the beginning to get to 12 now with some going over to the troop that uses yellow or blue. (Once the game takes off I can’t tell exactly because of the sharing of Mana with mana surges).
I’m going to keep an eye on this but something changed - I could power up within 3-4 turns sometimes even 2 turns(with the mana surges)
Any thoughts of how I can monitor this …it seems odd.
