Damage Over Time

From Liquipedia Dota 2 Wiki
Feel the burn.

Damage Over Time, (also known as DOT), is a spell that causes damage multiple times at a set interval over its duration. Most damage over time is dealt per second, but some spells will deal their damage at a different rate. While some values may be expressed per second, the damage may actually be dealt in smaller instances over shorter periods of time. This can cause a range of different interactions within the game.
