Heroes 5.5 RC18d update introduction of new mana mechanic

Mana Overhaul – Heroes now immediately recover their mana when visiting a town with a mage guild, interacting isn’t even needed, standing on a tile adjacent to the town is already enough, a message will indicate mana was restored. This will correct for ARMG sometimes placing a town at a very impractical angle. However increasing mana above the cap is no longer possible under any circumstance, mana will be reduced to cap level immediately if the knowledge of the hero goes down.
