The damage reduction this skill has (30% chance to miss from elite) - is that only for the 3 seconds or does it last until the monster or you die (like when you die they reset hp and probably any curses)

And please confirm - elites includes champions (blue packs) and unique (yellow)... not include bosses like butcher or the purple ones etc... right?

I beleive the 30% miss chance only lasts for the 3 seconds the blind lasts on other eamies, but haven't tested, so not 100% sure. – Valadil Jul 18 '12 at 5:02
Elites includes any rare/unique/superunique enemy, including bosses, champions, uniques, etc – kalina Jul 18 '12 at 8:26
Also, to get your nomenclature right : - Champions are blue - Rares are yellow - Uniques and Bosses are Purple – Nigralbus Jul 18 '12 at 9:31

Missed attacks and damage reduction last 3 seconds - the length of the skill.

Elites include all special enemies - Any enemy whose name isn't white is considered an elite. The community has generally summed up elites to mean this. Bosses are called bosses to differentiate them being an act-ending elite.

do elites still have the built in cc reduction that they used to have pre 2.0? – l I May 28 '14 at 16:41
@z' You get diminishing returns on cc. You'll notice that you can't knockup heavy elites or cc any act-ending boss. Here is a forum post that also links to the developer blog about elite cc – ChaseC May 28 '14 at 16:54
