What is a DoT in WoW? World of Warcraft Terms and Moar DoTs

A lot of people who are new to the game World of Warcraft have probably been puzzled over players talking about DoTs or dots. You might think that this means they are talking about dots of color or something similar, this term is actually quite different. Instead, it refers to a “damage over time” spell, often Moar DoTs?Moar DoTs?abbreviated as dot. A dot spell simply applies its damage every few seconds over a period of time, rather than all at once. Many warlock curses and affliction spells are dots rather than direct damage spells. If you hear people saying “moar dots!” they are actually referring to a funny Youtube video of an angry raid leader trying to explain a strategy for the boss fight Onyxia to his raid group. He utters the infamous line “You must dps very verrrrry slowly and then… dots, more dots, more dots!!!”
