What item is this filling mana so fast?

So I was watching this Disc healer challenge mode who was using an item that turns them into a big glob of hard amber which would fill up his mana very fast. Unfortunately I can't read anything in the video because it's in Korean :(

Any idea what it is?

He uses it around 6:48

I believe that's it. It functions like normal food, but DOES have a super-fast mana restore. Sadly not usable in combat.

EDIT:I now remember why i stopped using them. That 10g price point adds up really quickly, and they're not essential unless you're doing challenge mode or have a REALLY impatient tank.

But that's 150,000 mana over 20 seconds, I thought the regular food regened food at 300,000 over 30 seconds, wouldn't level 90 food be faster?

Someone made a comment on the Damage Dealer forums that they think its the same item but that ours doesn't restore nearly as much mana and as fast as the one in the video....

That'd be pretty insane/unfair if theirs was much more advanced.

How old is the video? I believe it might be restorative amber, however it did get nerfed a bit back so that it was closer to normal food.

when you start drinking mage food it starts out slower (in terms of the mana it gives) and ramps up as you continue to drink it, for a total of 300k after 30 seconds. this change was put into place a long time ago to prevent healers from spamming a drink macro to get quick ticks of drinking off. Think of it as the first few seconds of drinking mage water to be "dead" and not doing much.
With the amber this effect is not in place, allowing for more of a "frontload" of mana. This is important because in a CM if you are going to go for any sort of time, you will never have the opportunity to sit and drink for 20+ seconds

the reason why is the tooltip is incorrect. its only a 10 second duration (not 20) so expect super fast regen from it.

It is this, and they are really nice for CM as they also can't be broken by combat.
