Example: You cast mana drain, but get interrupted after 0.8 seconds. With the current mana drain you'd drain 0 mana (because it drains 100 in 1 second tacts).
With the suggested one you'd have drain 80 mana in 0.8 seconds (because it'd drain 10 in 0.1 second tacts).
You won't have to wait a full second to drain mana. It's a small, but handy buff.

Add it to this thread, because it's exactly the same tweak for a very simillar spell.
T-up for Mana Drain. 0.05 seconds won't be good, because it'd drag peformance. 0.1 second tact is ok imo.
As for Life Drain it'd drain 7.125/10.5/13.87511.25/15/18.75 with scepter hp every 0.1 seconds (magic resistance involved). Means it never could cancel consumables and dagger/heart. The minimum dmg required to disable them is 30.
But we could make it drain in 0.5 second tacts. Than it'd be enough dmg to disable consumables. It'd deal 35.625/52.5/69.375 dmg every 0.5 seconds (magic resistance involved).
And for the scepter version, 0.3 second tacts would be enough.
37.5/50/62.5 dmg every 0.3second (magic resistance involved).
Pls correct me if I made any mistakes.
