    [Fixed] Soul Ring does not work properly with Witch Doctor's Voodoo Restoration

    Summary: Voodoo Restoration will make use of Witch Doctor's Normal Mana pool instead of the extra 150 given by soul ring. For example, at level 1, I have 312 mana. I pop Soul ring, bringing me to 462 mana for 10 seconds. I turn on Voodoo Restoration for 10 seconds, which costs 105 mana (25 + 8*10). So I should not have even used up the full mana from Soul Ring. But when Soul Ring Wears out, I'm left with 242 mana, instead of still having full mana. The 25 mana initial cost uses the Soul Ring Buffer, but the 80 Mana to upkeep it for 10 seconds does not and takes from the main mana pool instead.


    Repro Steps:
    1) Pick Witch Doctor, Level up Voodoo Restoration.
    2) Buy Soul Ring
    3) Pop Soul Ring and Turn on Voodoo Restoration for 10 seconds, which should only burn 105 out of the 150 mana buffer.

    Result:
    The Mana upkeep ignores the Soul Ring Buffer, and you are left with less then full mana despite not having even used the full mana buffer.

    Expected Result:
    You should still have full mana when Soul Ring Wears out.

    Unless there is some "Does not apply to Mana Drain over time" Exception I'm Unaware of.

    intreasted if the same thing happens when you cats 2 spells in a row with another hero, since it Voodoo Restoration used the initial 25 mana but not the rest

    No, it seems to only happen for spells that have Mana over time components, which are minimal.

    Good post. This will have ramifications with future mana channeling abilities as well - best to be fixed now
