    Some interesting stuff today from @Diablo about damage types, resistances, Macs, and other sources of ill and woe.

    any change in the range of damage types to include holy, shadow, voodoo or anything else to match the classes?—Scyberdragon
    Damage types will likely change some but are currently DiabloWikiPhysical, DiabloWikiFire, DiabloWikiLightning, DiabloWikiCold, DiabloWikiPoison, DiabloWikiDisease, DiabloWikiArcane, and DiabloWikiHoly.—Diablo

    Whats the difference between poison and disease damage?—WickedBubba
    Disease has a damage debuff (both intake and output), and poison has a health debuff (regen/heal). Subject to change of course.—Diablo

    Is there much difference between poison and disease? They’re both internal maladies that hurt over a period of time.—Grug
    Fairly significant in their difference, but both countered with a single resistance. Damage/resists aren’t design complete though.—Diablo

    Will my friend and I be able to play together via battle.net? (he has a mac, I have a Dell inspiron)—Nik_Pecheos

    Yes, everyone logs into the same realms regardless of PC/Mac.—Diablo

    Holy damage is another one worth wondering about. It’s listed for a number of DiabloWikiMonk skills, but nothing is known about it. Can it be resisted? Does it do extra damage to DiabloWikiUndead?

    Also remember that DiabloWikicritical hits are possible with every damage type in D3, and they all come with various bonus effects; stun, chill, silence, etc. See the DiabloWikiCombat article for info on those and lots of other related issues.
