I assume to just take out as much as you can trough that straw but at one point it will kill you right?
No, you will naturally stop before that point. Like I said, once the stomach is full, the person automatically stops drinking. As long as they have that straw to control the intake. Without the straw, they don't have time to stop drinking because suddenly they have the entire infinite contents of the glass inside them and they die. Like I said, the analogy isn't perfect, and one has to make some assumptions that don't apply to the real world for it to truly make sense, but it's the closest we'll ever get to grasping the concept of dragonfable mana system in real world terms. At least, until we get more info.
If all mages could just take mana as much as they want trough the straw but slower in time they could get great abilities also right?
Well, maybe? The way I understand it, there are two things that limit how much mana a person can have. Their capacity for it, which limits the maximum amount they can possibly contain withing themself, and the straw, which regulates the rate at which they can intake it to a safe, non-lethal level. If you're born with a straw, it means there's an upwards limit of how much mana you can contain, and it doesn't matter how slowly you intake mana, once you reach that cap, you just stop taking it in, or die if you force it. Belle, having been born without the straw, seems to also have no maximum capacity because of that. Otherwise she'd probably be dead due to mana overflow. We definitely need more info to make any real concrete statements about it, I think.
