# Intro

DPS (Damage Per Second) is a measurement of how much damage an average player can do per second over time in real scenarios.

*If you'd like to see theoretical/engine speed caps instead, see User:Rydian/Speed.*

- This page records the raw DPS of a skill, ignoring other factors.
- Other factors like stun/knockdown can play a big part in combat.
*This is not a combat guide*.- All skills are used repeatedly with nothing else in-between activations.
- Most skills would not be used like this in actual combat.
*This is not a combat guide.*

- Most skills would not be used like this in actual combat.

- All skills are used repeatedly with nothing else in-between activations.
- All skills are assumed to be rank 1.

- Other factors like stun/knockdown can play a big part in combat.
- Percent DPS (%DPS) is a multiplier of your base damage (with different combat styles using different stats).
- Just because one skill has higher %DPS than another doesn't mean it'll do more damage for you.
- For example 200% DPS with a melee skill using 500 Strength will do far more than 500% DPS on a ranged skill using 50 Dexterity.

- Just because one skill has higher %DPS than another doesn't mean it'll do more damage for you.

# Test Methods

- Tests here were done live from the east coast of the US (the game servers are on the west coast).
- Tanky Barrier Spikes (such as in Provocation and Saga I Episode 7) are the preferred target for testing %DPS.
- They don't retaliate.
- Girgashiy can be used as a target with Advanced Heavy Stander otherwise.

- Each skill or attack type was fired off repeatedly against spikes while being recorded, then the average cycle speed was measured.
- Recordings were done at 60 FPS.
- A cycle is defined as the time between the frame that damage appears starting the attack, and the frame
*before*the next damage appears at the start of the next attack.- Example: https://i.imgur.com/StEUak3.gif
- Each cycle was measured multiple times for an average, discarding obvious anomalies due to lag spikes.
- For dual-wielding and dual guns a cycle is a set of attacks, not a single damage instance.

- The %damage of a skill divided by the speed of a cycle (in seconds) gets us the DPS of the skill.
