Damage per Second

Damage per Second (DPS) is a measure of how much damage a single unit or a group of units can deal in a certain time.

DPS = total damage dealt/time in seconds

Information[edit]

Often times dps only refers to the damage dealt by attacks and is more important than attack damage, as it also considers attack speed.

Heroes and Items[edit]

The following table illustrates the absolute (+) and relative (%) increase of DPS common items have on heroes at different hero levels. In can be sorted for each item to compare the effectiveness on different heroes.

Trivia[edit]

  • The Hippogryph has the highest dps of all units and the Chimaera has highest dps of all Night Elf units against ground units
