MP5 (also known as MP/5) is a shortened term for the attribute that is itemized as "Restores X mana per 5 sec." or "Mana per 5 seconds".
- Although the number given is based on 5 second intervals, the effect triggers every 2 seconds. For example, an item that grants 10 mana per 5 sec. restores 4 mana every tick.
- MP5 is distinct from Spirit in that it ignores the five second rule, restoring the same amount of mana regardless of whether the player is casting.
- Consequently, MP5 is not affected by any ability that "allows X% of your mana regeneration to continue while casting."
With World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, MP5 was removed from gear and replaced with Spirit. To accommodate this change, all healer specializations received as a passive ability, while caster dps had their active and passive mana regeneration rebalanced appropriately to no longer need nor benefit from a mana regen stat. MP5 was still present on certain redesigned player buffs throughout the expansion, though these have been removed since.
