Mana regeneration plagues casters in many MMOs. Buffs that increase mana regeneration often earn the nickname "crack." (A title that was first applied to the clarity series of spells in Everquest.) The origins of the concept may have religious connotations, but now mana has been a popular way to fuel abilities in American games. Prior to this, console rpgs often used a number called spell point or in the case of the Phantasy Star series, technique points.
