Roshen posted a thread yesterday, indicating that there will be some overhauling of how character and item statistics will be displayed after the next patch. This stat consolodation apparently won't take anything away but will streamline how various statistics will appear in game:

Greetings, people of Norrath!
On (or around) Wednesday, May 18, 2016, we’ll be rolling out our next update. In this update, we’ll be changing what is commonly referred to as “mod2s” on items. We know that changing how item stats display may seem like a big change. This won’t impact you in a negative way, and we wanted to start a conversation about this before it happens so you know what to expect.
In the May update, we’re changing some stats from being separate entries on your character window to being properties of heroic stats. In their current form, the following mods are ones that most characters have easily capped since The Buried Sea (our 2007 expansion):
- Combat Effects
- Damage Shield
- Damage Shield Mitigation
- DoT Shielding
- Spell Shielding
- Stun Resist
Having these stats visible on current items serves no real purpose, and ends up adding clutter and complexity to the game that doesn’t need to be there. Our goal with these changes is to reduce clutter on items and on your inspect window, in order to make it easier for you to better understand items at a glance.
