Mana Points

From Liquipedia Dota 2 Wiki

Mana Points (also known as Mana or MP) represents the amount of mana a unit has remaining. The mana bar appears as a blue bar on the HUD, underneath the Health bar. Mana is the resource used to cast most spells. If the current mana is lower than the amount needed to use a skill, it cannot be cast.

All heroes have a base mana of 75, plus 12 per each point of Intelligence.

The left number shows the current mana, while the right number shows the maximum mana. The number shown with a + sign on the far right is mana regen per second.

Example mana bar:

          100 / 100      +0.9

MP Formula[edit]

The following formula is used to calculate total mana points.

For agility and strength heroes:

(Intelligence Growth × (Current Level - 1) ➜ rounded down) + Base Intelligence + Bonus Intelligence × 12 = Mana from Intelligence + 75 Base Mana = Total Mana

For intelligence heroes:

(Intelligence Growth × (Current Level - 1) ➜ rounded down) + Base Intelligence + Bonus Intelligence × 15 = Mana from Intelligence + 75 Base Mana = Total Mana

Mana Point Regeneration[edit]

Mana Point Regeneration (also known as Mana Regen or MP Regen) represents the amount of mana a hero regenerates per second.

Heroes regain 0.05 mana every second per point of Intelligence, plus any bonuses from items and skills.
