Made some, sold em, made more, consumed one, all worked as expected. Fine for magic use, would hate to have to make lots to ship mana around though

Not sure why but players under beginner's protection are unable to cast the spell. When I tried to cast lesser mana fusion on my terra account I got a pop up that said "You cannot cast a spell on this player, as he is currently under Protection until Jan 5 2019 7:04AM" This isn't a detrimental spell and you can cast other beneficial spells on players under protection so not sure why this spell is limited. I realize that most new players wouldn't have run into this but it seems like something that isn't needed.

I've had the same experience.  Unless you absorb 1 at a time, it seems to only give you credit for just 1.  So if i absorb 10, I only get 75,000 mana back instead of 750,000.  Devs will have to fix this.   There may be something I'm missing with research but doubt it since it lets me select MAX number to absorb, just doesn't give the correct amount of mana.

Another issue with this is the creation of greater mana crystals:  The cost is suppose to be 105,000 mana.  I've tried this multiple times from multiple cities and its costing me 210,000 mana per crystal to produce.  I'm guessing this is a error in the math cause doesn't make sense to spend 210,000 to be able to later absorb 75,000.   Since mana is so plentiful i think most players haven't noticed this by producing one stone at a time but if you try to build say 10 crystals you will notice this issue:  my mana in one town went from 99.02 million to 96.92 million after producing 10 greater mana crystals.   Can others please verify this.  

I haven't checked to see the math adds up for the lesser crystals yet.

I can verify the cost appears to be around double.  What you would expect.  My first thought was that it cost 105K + 75K but that math doesn't seem to fit either.

I don't think its a method of transferring magic from one town to another - certainly not a practical one. It's for producing the new weapons (although I can see no reason why the magic itself could not have been the ingredient as the research itself only takes a short time to research). Nobody is going to build up a big body of transferable magic one shard at a time - but of course the math should be right. If you could make them in bulk, you might see alliances transferring lots of magic to the front lines in wars - might be interesting!

Lesser mana crystals are also taking twice as much mana to cast as listed on the spell. Instead of 1100 per cast it was eating 2200. Big disappointment since I was testing if doing the mage tower on a terra was worthwhile and got half as many crystals as expected.

with books, you spent 25r to make one book and get 20 back when you read it.
with magic, you spend 210,000 and get 75,000 back.
something is broken.

If it is not a bug or miscalculation then may be devs are thinking of introducing a new Enchantment Retreat building to improve Enchantment/Transmog-something-something's efficiency?
