Through the use of this spell, the caster calls into being special food with potent qualities. Persons who partake of the magically created food (via EAT) will experience accelerated mana and spirit recovery. The effect will fade immediately upon entering combat (attacking, casting a spell of war, or being attacked).

The mana regeneration rate is based on the bread maker's Major Spiritual spell ranks. The formula is:

Mana per minute = 1 + 1 per seed 4 summation of MjS spell ranks
Major Spirit spell ranks 3 4 9 15 22 30 39 49 60 72 85
Mana regeneration benefit 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
Major Spirit spell ranks 99 114 130 147 165 184 204 225 247 270 294
Mana regeneration benefit 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22

The mana regeneration benefit from Manna stacks with that of Heroism (215).

Spirit is restored at a rate of 1 every 4 minutes and cannot be improved through any additional training.

Each race can create a handful of different types of bread. When cast, a random type is created. However, typing SUMMON while the spell is prepared will list available options that you can specify to create a specific type of manna bread! Rarely, you may even have the opportunity to create unique, custom-designed flavors of manna bread! For more information, see manna bread types and Custom Manna.

Each loaf of bread has 5 bites. Each bite adds 5 minutes to the rejuvenation effect. GOBBLE will consume multiple bites at once, stacking the duration as if each bite was taken individually.

The magical bread created by this spell loses its potency quickly unless it is specially preserved. As the food deteriorates, it may actually become poisonous. Bread will remain fresh for a duration of 1 hour. SNIFF or SMELL the bread to determine its status. When fresh, it will have a wonderful aroma. When it has no odor, it will not benefit nor harm the eater. When it has a sour odor, it may poison the eater. Consecrate (1604) can be used to restore the bread to an edible state.


  • PREP 203 | CAST or INCANT 203 to create a random bread
  • PREP 203 | SUMMON {bread-type} to summon a specific bread (no mechanical difference)
    • For a list of available options and expected input, type SUMMON while the spell is prepared. Bread names can be shortened by starting with the first word, but not the noun (e.g. to summon a wild rice cake, SUMMON wild will work, while SUMMON cake will not)

Lore Benefit

Spiritual Lore, Blessings will add to the consumer's maximum mana at a rate of +5 per seed 10 summation. For example, at 46 lore ranks, it grants +20 maximum mana; at 145 lore ranks, +50 maximum mana. Benefits from other items, such as enhancives, will not push the maximum mana over the +50 cap.

Spiritual Lore, Blessings ranks 10 21 33 46 60 75 91 108 126 145
Maximum mana benefit 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 50
Not all thresholds shown

Use with Consecrate (1604)

Consecrate (1604) will restore the manna bread, dependent on the caster's skill. The mana regeneration rate will be set to 3 + seed 2 summation of Spiritual Lore, Blessings. The maximum mana lore bonus will be set to 10 + (5 * seed 5 summation of Spiritual Lore, Blessings). If the existing effectiveness is less than the Paladin or scroll user's skill set, then the stats are not affected, but the food is no longer spoiled.


You take a bite of your manna bread.
The spiritual nourishment has a replenishing effect upon you.
That was the last of it!
Mana regeneration
You feel more refreshed.
The replenishing effect fades, but you are left with a feeling of wellbeing.
Person looks less calm and refreshed than a moment ago.
