    Do the bonuses to damage vs. demons and/or elites work on act bosses?

    Thank you in advance for your time and consideration in this matter.

    23 views no replies? Does no one know?

    And what about this...

    for example, Monk Exploding Palm rune that acts as a monster debuff to amplify damage received by monster... would that stack with say, the mod on Stone of Jordan that says "Adds X% damage to Exploding Palm (Monk only)"? Or will only the bleed effect & aoe explosion from Exploding Palm benefit from the % damage gain?

    Can anyone help me understand how these bonuses are applied? Thank you.

    Damage vs elites seems to work vs bosses, though I have done no actual tests. I have no experience what so ever with damage vs demons though I assume if the boss is a demon it is affective otherwise it is not.

    My guess with exploding palm is that just the damage is boosted and not the debuff.

    Now these are merely lose observations and assumptions and they should be properly tested. My question to you is....do you care enough about the answer to test it yourself? Also note that bugs may exist as well.

    Exploding palm bonus only effects the bleed.

    Elite damage works on bosses.

    Demons I haven't tested, but I can only assume would work against demon bosses. I guess that would be:
    Butcher
    Belial
    Ghom
    Siegebreaker
    Cydea
    Azmodan
    Iskatu
    Rakanoth
    Diablo
