Last night, while doing some Nephalem rifts, I encountered both "The Butcher" and "Zoltun Kuule" as rift bosses, only they were renamed slightly (The butcher had a different name, and a subtitle of "Meat Chopper"). Both retained several of their boss abilities from their original Acts, but this was the first time I'd encountered former bosses in a rift. Others seemed to be randomly generated champions. Does anyone know, or have enough experience to say, where the rift bosses are picked from?

  • what do you mean by "where the rift bosses are picked from"? – Novarg Apr 1 '14 at 14:24

    I think he means what pool of characters. So far, EVERY rift guardian I have fought was a boss. I have gotten Rakanoth several times. – horatio Apr 1 '14 at 14:54

  • There's one called Choker that I hate because of her insane poison damage... she's the only one I ever remember though. – Rachel Apr 2 '14 at 20:50
