DPS - damage per second


Definition: DPS stands for Damage Per Second and is an acronym frequently used in roleplaying games. It refers simply to the amount of damage a player or group of players can inflict on the enemy in one second. It's not usually an exact figure unless it is used to rate something like a weapon or spell. Melee and caster classes typically do high DPS, while healer classes most often do much less.
