the skill is just like forcing the character to use the nexus ones when entering a new level.
the detail does not say that, or is it a bug?

This is a feature, not a bug. The reason behind removing all buffs is so that players won't spend all their mana before entering a new level casting various buffs and then entering next level with full mana and buffs again.

So if this is a issue, then it's a matter of balancing exploits. Do you have any suggestions on how to handle this differently?

sometimes heros who have learnt this skill but don't want to lost their buffs, so it may be better to show a msgbox or checkbox to ask the hero if he wants to restore his mana and remove all the buff.

the purpose of this topic is, at the later game, some buff-base heros do not always want to lost their buffs by entering a new level, because they still have a lot of mana, so the skill may be a debuff sometimes.

That is actually a good idea.
I agree that it should only happen if one really restores his mana.

I would vote for simply removing the debuff when you enter a new level. Remove the mana bonus from crysalis consumables to balance it more out.

Problem is that the game gets too easy very fast for mages. They cast a bunch of spells and become invincible.
So the only thing that can kill them is when they run out of mana in deeper levels.
When they can keep all their spells running all the time the game gets even easier.
At least they have to spend a lot of mana at levelstart. and they have all the work :evil:

Could change it to refill part of your mana then. Like 1 mana per character level, 50% of max mana or something like that.

Or refill all mana -1 per active spell (or something like that)
