Total average DPS

Total average DPS assumes a rotation of * Frostbolt + Fire Blast sequencewith no Fire Blasts, as its DPS is lower than Frostbolt's over  seconds.

About this project

This does a calculation of my two main spells, Frostbolt and Fire Blast. (my character is Tsouzer on the Maiev realm) Here are discussions that led to this. I learned the formulas from WoWWiki pages, specifically Spell hit, Frostbolt, and Formulas:Plus damage and Plus healing.
