    Default Theft of Thought - Please Increase Mana Reduction

    The 'Theft of Thought' Finisher from the Infiltrator tree reduces the target's mana by 750 if you hit them with it once you've built up 5 combo points. However, with new gear upgrades 750 isn't what it used to be.

    I think that this Finisher could be souped up a bit by benefiting from Attack Power bonus, or at least scaling to a larger number. As it stands now, a Rogue using this Finisher would have to hit a mage or cleric with it at least 6 or 7 times before completely draining their mana. (In all likelihood, probably more due to potions, mana healing abilities, etc)

    Alternately the Physical damage for this Finisher could be increased a little, but I'm definitely leaning towards making its primary ability (the mana drain) more effective.

    No we don't need any more mana reduction.

    It's already hard enough sometimes to keep your mana up with the other classes AOE mana drains and debuffs. Any more and it would gimp pure casters.

    Not only do we have our HP like you but when our MANA runs out that's it we are completely useless. In comparison melee based classes can continue to do damage and build up energy.

    theft of thought crits for 600 on 1k+ valor

    it should either have its damage increased OR the mana drain increased to 900 mana drain for 5 combo points which take a while to build up anyway. the gear upgrades makes large mana pools and the raw dmg from theft of thought is negligible. u can't kill a drained p8 cleric with it just due to natural mana regen and instants.

    What a heartbreaker. Everyone should be able solo healers.

    The natural mana regen that has been nerfed? Oh ok.

    Perhaps the accompanying damage for this finisher could at least be changed to magical instead of physical?

    Theft of thought has possibly the least synergy for a Rogue move ever, and that's saying something. It takes so long for us to build a finisher, and that's the only move in the entire class that drains mana. We can't pump them out fast enough to make it even worth using. I'd say replace it with something that benefits our class.
