RDPS

What does RDPS stand for in WoW?

Ranged damage per second

World of Warcraft (WoW) players use RDPS to stand for ranged damage per second. This acronym refers to characters who specialize in repeatedly dealing damage from a range.

Characters that can deal a lot of RDPS are often squishy, so you'll usually see them protected by one or more tanks. In contrast, MDPS (melee damage per second) characters are typically hardier, allowing them to take a few hits in close-quarters combat.

Example

We need at least five RDPS to focus on the ranged mobs.
