    WoWWiki is not always accurate as it could and maybe out of date, but is usefull when you're completely lost.
    World of Warcraft is merely a setback...

    wowwiki (link above from dsmania) says:

    Over Time Spell

    Over Time spells apply healing or damage over a period of time in ticks.

    (Duration of Spell / 15) = Total

    3 sec = 20%
    6 sec = 40%
    9 sec = 60%
    12 sec = 80%
    15 sec = 100%
    18 sec = 120%
    21 sec = 140%

    Prior to patch 2.0.1, there was a 100% cap on over-time spells longer than 15 seconds. This cap has since been removed. The total bonus is divided equally to each tick.

    Examples of these spells include: Rejuvenation (Druid), Renew (Priest)

    Exceptions of this rule are: Shadow Word: Pain (Priest) - 110%, increased beyond 140% with Improved Shadow Word: Pain, which extends its duration to 24 sec.
    Corruption (Warlock) - 93%, can be increased to 129% with talents
    Curse of Agony (Warlock) - 120%
    Curse of Doom (Warlock) - 200%

    [edit] Combination - Standard and Over Time Spell

    The bonus for spells that have both a standard and an over time component is divided between them. The over time portion receives the following bonus:

    (Duration / 15) / ((Duration / 15) + (Cast Time of Spell / 3.5)) = Portion to Over Time

    The standard portion receives the rest:

    1 - Portion to Over Time = Portion to Standard

    The duration and cast time limits are then applied:

    (Cast Time of Spell / 3.5) * Portion to Standard = Total bonus to Standard Portion

    (Duration / 15) * Portion to Over Time = Total Bonus to Over Time Portion

    Examples of these spells include: Moonfire (Druid), Regrowth (Druid), Immolate (Warlock)
    Nethersturm Legion
    Zirkel des Cenarius Europe
