How It Calculates the Results

The DPS is calculated using the following formula:

  • Total Damage = (Base Damage * (1 + Increased Damage + Elemental Damage) + Added Damage)
  • Average Crit Multiplier = 1 + (Critical Strike Chance * (Critical Strike Multiplier / 100 – 1))
  • DPS = Total Damage * Attack Speed * Average Crit Multiplier


This calculator provides an estimate of your DPS based on the inputs provided. It does not account for factors such as enemy resistances, special skill effects, or specific in-game mechanics that may alter damage calculations. Always use this tool as a guideline and adjust your character build accordingly.
