We have potions for restoring HP in the middle of a battle.

How about potions for restoring MP in the middle of a battle?

They already exist, but are only available at higher levels (and from a particularly magical shop).

But this isn't balanced.

Hit point potions are available like candy. You can get them in the easy-to-access store, they are dropped by monsters, etc.

Mana? Fighters are using it fairly early. Mages live and breathe by it. Exactly the same "My fighter needs an HP boost to kill this boss" applies to "My mage needs an MP boost to kill this boss". Even fighter abilities need MP's long before they get their rocks off the ground.

There is another way to temporarily boost your MP, available as early as level 7...

The small magical charm? The magic dagger?

Or is there something else in the way of a consumable?

Both of those work, but yes, there's also a more potent consumable that I had in mind.

Hmm...

Nothing that I can think of that I've seen in a drop.

Must be a cookable.

Even then, I can buy all the HP potions I want, unlimited supply.

It is not a cookable.

I did not say it restores mana (or MP). I said it can temporarily boost it.

That wouldn't be the globe of concentration, would it? I was never able to figure out what it did.

It would be. You should observe your maximum MP after using one.
