Damage over Time (short: DoT) is a debuff that causes the affected unit to constantly take damage until the effect expires, is cleansed, or the target moves to the Hall of Storms. Damage is dealt at the end of each interval, the first of which begins when the spell lands, and the amount the unit will take is usually shown on the health bar as grey health. Some spells come with an initial damage, which may or may not be equal to the periodic damage. Certain DoT effects will not interrupt certain effects that require the hero not to take damage while channeling.
