ModArs Magica 2

Burnout is an indication of a player's current fatigue level. Spells will have an increase in Mana cost as the player's Burnout increases. For Ars Magica 2 v1.1.2 and earlier, the amount of Burnout a player receives is dependent on their Casting Mode; a higher tier Casting Mode results in a higher Burnout cost.

A player's Burnout is displayed as a red bar located at the bottom left of the screen. By default the exact value of the current Burnout is hidden, though this can be changed by entering the command /amuicfg and enabling Numeric in the Options tab. The Burnout bar can be moved around in the amucfg window.
