Denizens of the Cosmos
Goddess of the Moon
<A voice from inside the moonwell flows over your mind, bringing you a perfect sense of peace.> "...know that all things come at a cost."
The moonwells—bound to the magic of nature and the light of Elune—were places of healing for both the land around them and those who drank of their waters. Magi and other spellcasters could even refresh their mana, a gift of the Mother Moon to Azeroth's other defenders.
Professions of the Cosmos
MagesStudents gifted with a keen intellect and unwavering discipline may walk the path of the mage. The arcane magic available to magi is both great and dangerous, and thus is revealed only to the most devoted practitioners. Mages can expend mana in order to deal high amounts of damage with amazing speed, though they must be wary of exhausting themselves.
WarlocksWarlocks are magical practitioners who seek to understand darker, fel-based magics, including destructive spells. In the face of demonic power, most heroes see death. Warlocks see only opportunity. Dominance is their aim, and they have found a path to it in the dark arts. These voracious spellcasters summon demonic minions to fight beside them. At first, they command only the service of imps, but as a warlock’s knowledge grows, seductive succubi, loyal voidwalkers, and horrific felhunters join the dark sorcerer’s ranks to wreak havoc on anyone who stands in their master’s way. The warlocks most class-defining resources are Mana and Soul Shards. Life Tap converts some of the warlock's health into mana, damaging the warlock but replenishing mana. Many of the warlock's most powerful spells require the sacrifice of a reagent called a soul shard. The foul crystal creates connection to the Twisting Nether, pulling a demon through against its will.
Diablo's Description of Mana
While Diablo's lore is not the same as World of Warcraft lore, it's important to understand what mana is considered to be in regards to Diablo's lore because the mana of World of Warcraft's lore might indeed be considered the same as Diablo's mana. In regards to Diablo, Mana is a deep well of spiritual energy.
