Meditation is an additional skill for Magery, by using the skill you can regenerate your lost mana very fast, Meditation also raise passive regeneration of the mana, which can be boosted by using any mana regeneration Magic Clothing – that’s the part mostly for mages, but what about other chars? Mediation is also handy for Warriors, because even with low Intelligence you can cast many spells (for example while recalling to many locations). There is one more use of Meditation for Warriors, you can wear Obsidean/Corundum armours which have effect of dropping mana before health, you can survive much more mele hit than in regular armor. Inscription is another skill that needs Meditation, because by making scrolls you lose mana, the same as from casting spells, you need the skill. Evaluating Intelligence gain passive while entering Meditation trance.

Note: Passive mana regeneration without Meditation skill is very slow, 1 mana each 4-6 seconds, while with GM Meditation it’s 5-7 mana every 4-6 seconds, and with an Oracle mana regeneration clothing (the best), its about 9-11 mana each 4-6 seconds.

HOW TO TRAIN
To get the best gains you have to begin Meditation trance at perfect moment. An example: if you have 100 mana (int), and 33% of Meditation, you should begin Meditation trance after casting spells that takes about 30 mana (30% of all), so you begin medit when you have 70 mana left from 100 mana, and that way till gm… Above GM of Meditation, let’s say you have 115% of the skill with +25 jewel, it is recommended to Meditate from 0 mana (you will get the best gains then), 100 mana and anything above is terrible for training Meditation at high level, because even if you cast a few spells to lose all your mana it always regenerate back and it is hardly possible to medit from 0 mana. There are two ways, drop your int to 40 and cast any spell from seventh circle, then medit (by the way remove your mana clothing, it helps a lot). And the second way if you don’t want to drop your int by any reason, get a Quarter Staff and keep casting Mana Drain spell on youself, the staff will not prevent the passive mana regeneration but Meditation at general (the skill will gain properly), and Mana Drain spell will let you to begin Meditation trance from extactly 0 mana.
