World of Warcraft (WoW) players use MDPS to stand for melee damage per second. This acronym refers to characters who specialize in dealing repeated physical damage in close-quarters combat.
High MDPS characters are often a party's primary frontline attackers. In contrast, characters with a high RDPS (ranged damage per second) usually attack from a range.
