Warcraft III Patch 1.16 Details

Destroyer negative mana regeneration increased to -6/sec from -3/sec.
Mana gain of Devour Magic increased to 150 per dispelled unit from 75 per dispelled unit.

every time you say reduced in it the numbers get bigger, now im no wc3 player so i wouldnt know for sure, but shouldnt it be increaced?

its worded a bit weird, but its correct. basically orginal value was 520 and its been reduced to 505..."from" 520.

Yup all their fault. But it is worded correctly ;)
