"Damage over time spells (and heal over time spells!) are given 100% of your +spell damage or healing, spread out over the duration of the spell."'This is true only if the damage over time spell lasts exactly 15 seconds. The current formula for damage over time spells is:spell damage coefficient = duration/15 secondsThus, a spell with a duration longer than 15 seconds will receive more than 100% spell damage, while a shorter spell will receive less. There are a handful of exceptions to this rule where Blizzard felt that the long duration of a spell gave it an unfair damage amount, but the bulk of DoTs / HoTs follow the above formular.
