uhhh...in ur PoV(point of view) what does DPS mean exactly????

DAMAGE PER SECOND.

This does not in ANYWAY refer to a melee character. when someone says what classes do u usually play, its MELEE dps. or BURST dps. Melee DPS has a Constant usually lower rate of dmg that continually feeds into its numbers allowing a constant flow of damage. Burst DPS (Black mages in general) usually can unleash a devastating amount of damage over 2-3 seconds whereas a melee dps cant do that amount of DMG in 2-3 seconds, but he has a constant flow of dmg.(this is impossible if the melee dps is fed up his arse lol.)
EX:
Melee dps : 100 dmg every second.
Burst DPS: 300 dmg every 3 seconds.

makes more sense now? kthxbai.

I always separate DPS by AD and AP. I think it makes more sense that way.

Meaning, AD and AP are subsets of DPS, but both are considered DPS. At least that's how I think of it.

I do this with tanks, too. Off tank or main tank(OT or MT), depending on if they've got a decent initiate ability.

And then there's support, which is support, and can build whatever else they want as long as they can continue their supporting role well.

So then we've got my perfect team of:
MT
OT
Support
AP DPS
AD DPS

burst does less damage over time, a lot less
also dps is more useful overall for tasks like pushing towers or baron/dragon
