I don't think it should be a super strong percentage maybe like a 1-2% or so, and then have a percentage of the mana burned be converted into damage. And again that could be like a 4% conversion. This would damage DPSes but it would counter Mana champions like Ryze. It should be a legendary Tier item as if gotten early game it would be ridiculously OP..
The problem, again, with Mana Burn being available, especially on an item, is because either it isn't effective enough and you may as well have a less specialized item in it's place, or it's overpoweringly effective.
Another example of this is Sleep as a CC. I've heard of it being used in other MOBAs, and it's basically a really long stun that is cancelled if someone hits the sleeping target. Either everyone knows not to hit the sleeper, and they kill the rest of the team first, or they screw it up and may as well have not used it.
