Acronym meaning Damage Per Second. Often used in role playing games such as World of Warcraft, Defense of the Ancients, and Diablo. Used to measure how much damage per second a player is inflicting.
Hero 1 hits once per second and deals 100 damage. His DPS is 100.

Hero 2 hits twice per second and deals 50 damage. His DPS is 100.

Both Heroes purchase an item that grants 100 bonus damage.

Hero 1 now hits once per second and deals 200 damage. His DPS is 200.

Hero 2 now hits twice per second and deals 150 damage. His DPS is 300.

Used in MMORPGs, DPS stands for Damage Per Second, and has two meanings. 1) As an adjective, it describes how much damage a weapon or spell does each second. 2) As a noun, it refers to a character class or specialization which focuses on doing a lot of damage quickly, or in bursts.
1) A dagger has a rating of 112 DPS. That means that the damage it causes per hit, divided by the time it takes to swing with it, comes out to 112.
2) Mages, Rogues, Rangers, and the like focus on dealing a lot of damage, as opposed to tanks who take damage, or healers, who heal damage. Therefore, they are referred to as DPS classes
