Powersink increases the time needed for the target to prepare a spell. This spell is difficult to defend against. It lasts 120 seconds vs. creature targets, and 60 seconds vs. character targets.

Mana Control Benefit

Training in Mental Mana Control (MMC) adds an extra affected target for every seed 6 summation of (skill bonus/10). For example, with 35 ranks of MMC (130 skill bonus), the caster can affect a total of three targets.

MMC ranks 0 13 35 110 200
Total targets 1 2 3 4 5
Skill bonus converted to ranks
