well yea, weakness, resistance, etc. effect the total damage
so does str bonus etc.
this is just explaining before all those things are applied
(based on ORIGINAL values)

i didn't "get" the time frame
time frame is not calculated, unless you're calculating based on a specific situation
i picked 25 seconds for no reason really
it's just a timeframe in which rb idh is casted twice
let's say someone melees and does 1 damage to foriel
then afks for 100 seconds
his dps in that situation with a timeframe of 100 seconds would be:
1/100=0.01 dps
if i use the timeframe 50 seconds, his dps in that same situation with a timeframe of 50 seconds would be:
1/50=0.02 dps

it is your choice which timeframe to use

for example, let's take dacy and lime
dacy does high dps over a LONG timeframe
while lime does high dps in a SHORT timeframe
