A fan asked for more detail in the Diablo 3 damage display, and Bashiok, returned to active forum duty after a few weeks away, was able to provide a happy answer.
I have a barbarian with a halberd that adds 1-9 lightning damage in addition to its other stats. I mouse over his attack in the character sheet and it breaks down the damage for me in a tooltip:
Total Damage – “54.2 – 164.6”
Physical Damage – “27.0 – 79.0”
– Physical Damage Bonus – “26.2 – 76.6”
Lightning Damage – “1.0 – 9.0”
And in researching this example I just found a bug, so it was a win-win situation for everyone.
Oh and the physical damage bonus is from Strength.
That level of detail is shown for everything in the character tree; not just the damage. Click through for an example of what all the Monk’s character window showed in the BlizzCon build.
The Monk: Level 12
Left click damage: 10-17 (Exploding Palm)
Right click damage: 13-21 (Crippling Wave)
1.10 Attacks per second
14.7% Physical Critical Hit Chance
+50.0% Physical Critical Damage
0.0 Block Amount
0.0% Block Chance
19.1% Physical Damage Reduction
Resistances: All 0%. The names did not display; just icons for the five damage types.
There was no box for hit points or mana in the character window. I had to hover over the red/blue bulbs to see those amounts. Those hovers showed a lot of detail, besides just the total amount. They showed how much I had, and from whence came that bonus.
Life: 143/143 (15 + 108 + 20) “Life. Lose it all and you’re dead.”
Base life: 15 Life from Vitality: 108 Life from items: 20
Mana: 60/60. (27 + 33). “Mana: Required to use most skills.
