That tells you the total damage the skill does based on your % bonuses,etc. That has nothing to do with the number of casts per second though, and without that you can't calculate the actual spell dps.

Its looking like the only option here is to go manually time some spells and try to figure it out

You can reverse engineer it with some simple math as long as you have your final dps (which you do), your damage-per-hit (which you can reasonably sum together), and dividing by your cast speed relative to 100% (which you have).

Casts per second differs from spell to spell. It is entirely dependent on the length of the base animation at 100% Cast Speed, and nothing else. Cast (and Attack) Speed is a multiplier for an animation's playrate.

That's on the second tab of your character sheet. On the first tab you have info about main stats, Health etc. and dps between Defensive Ability and Armor Rating. Hover with your cursor over it and you'll see the damage per second of your LMB skill, RMB skill and your default weapon attack.

Thanks, I didn't realize it showed that for spells, thought it was only for weapon attacks. I'll check it out tonight

  3. -n% Resistance

Let us say we are fighting an enemy with 80% Fire Resistance, and we have:
  • Plague Bearer's Prefix (lvl 41): "18 Reduced Target's Resistance for 5 Seconds"
  • Olexra's Flash Freeze (lvl 9): "-46% Fire Resistance"
  • of the Abyss Suffix (lvl 46): "30% Reduced Target's Resistance for 3 Seconds"
Either the Plague Bearer's Prefix or Olexra's Flash Freeze would be applied first, so:
80%-18-46%=16%
Then the "of the Abyss" Suffix would be applied:
16%*(1-30%)=11.2%.
I see a contradiction...
