Harness Power

Harness Power is the skill that governs how much mana a character possesses on top of their base starting mana. Each rank of Harness Power up to the character's level gives the character three mana points. If trained more times than the character's current level, one additional mana point is granted per rank.

Harness Power counts as a magical skill for the purposes of runestaff training. For someone not using a runestaff, training 1x to level might be best (i.e. a level 13 sorcerer trains 13 times in this skill.) For a runestaff user training twice more (level 13 sorcerer would have 15 ranks in this skill) might be a good idea; this only nets a total of 2 more mana points, but the cost of the skill in terms of overall runestaff training may well make it worthwhile.
