The DPS Meter shows your Damage Per Second while you are fighting, as well as the damage you are taking. It also shows your total for the last fight.
The example above shows that right now you are doing 4.8 dps and taking 2.9 dps. This is updated in real-time as you fight. During your last battle you did a total of 235 damage over 74.3 seconds for a DPS of 3.2.
Your current DPS is the sum of your damage for the last 10 seconds divided by 10 seconds. The same method is used to calculate the damage taken.
Using the DPS Meter
The DPS meter appears in the Alert window while you are fighting, and stays visible for a short time after a fight. It stays hidden at other times to minimize clutter.For the DPS Meter to appear:
