Sword Specifications


#1

The swords have two specs: Damage XXX and (XXX DPS). I’m sure that this is probably obvious to most people but I was wondering what DPS stands for and how it differs from Damage.

Thanks.

DPS - Damage Per Second. It depends on the damage and the speed.


#3

So which is better, high damage or high DPS? Also, what speed are you referring to? Is there a formula for DPS?

Each weapon has a cooldown which defines the pause between hits. For example, if cooldown == 0.5 it means it hit with pause 0.5 seconds or twice at a second.

frequency = 1 / coodown

So DPS it how much damage you can do per second:

DPS = damage * frequence = damage / cooldown

As in the first example if cooldown == 0.5 and damage = 30, then you hit twice at a second and your dps = 60

If two weapons have the same DPS, then it’s better to take less damage, because that weapon is faster. For other cases, it’s better to have the highest DPS.
