Damage Over Time (DOT) can be done easily with RPG Maker MV itself. However, Damage Over Time Stacking is much harder to do. As a popular mechanic found in MMORPG’s, it’s no surprise that it’d find inspiration to be used in traditional RPG’s either. This Tips & Tricks video will show to recreate this effect in RPG Maker MV!
