Question about the way DoT is presented.

Recommended Posts


Just a quick question about DoT.  Abilities and spells (eg. Combustible Wounds) show DoT as (example) "5 Damage Over Time for 20 seconds".
Does it mean that the enemy will suffer 5 damage total over the course of 20 seconds.. or is it 5 damage each second for 20 seconds?

The description is a bit confusing..

The former.

The latter would be expressed as '100 damage over 20 seconds' or possibly '5 damage per second for 20 seconds' 


That said, I hope they picked one standard phrase and stuck with it for all DoTs.
