At least here. They may do damage. They may even do it over the course of seconds. But when people say DPS, they ALWAYS mean physical damage, e.g. ashe or trynd. The word for a mage that builds for damage is AP.

I know most people here know this, but I figured I might as well help some newbies out before I go get some delicious pumpkin spice latte.

See, you're missing the point. They do a lot of damage and they do it sustained, but the terminology in LoL is such that DPS always means physical. Always. It has nothing to do with what DPS actually means.

Malzahar does damage over time. Seconds = time, damage = damage, thus, Malzahar is a DPS.
