But even defence didn't provide physical resistance. In fact there was no way for a player to specifically gain physical resistance in D2. There were a few rare items that resisted a certain % of all damage you took and those would reduce your physical damage taken along with everything else. But other then that, physical resistance in D2 was purely a monster stat.

As for hidden stats in D2, there were stats that didn't show up on your character sheet, but every stat showed up on the item. So it's pretty easy to know what all the stats were. For example your character sheet may not have shown "magic find" but the item you equpped did so you knew it was a stat. D3 is the same way to my understanding. But Blizzard also frequently answers questions and clarifies information about game mechanics.

There were a lot of hidden stats in D2. Are you all of the stats are exposed to the player this time? If not how do the fan sites know what the full set of stats are?
