Damage over time

From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Damage over time (DoT), damage per minute (DPM), or "alpha" damage, is a term which means dealing sustained damage not at once but averaged over a given time period. Most damage over time skills deal damage over discrete time increments, however others deal damage only when a specific triggering condition is met. The term is also used to refer collectively to both true damage over time effects and health degeneration effects, which are similar, but technically a form of non-damage health loss.
