I just got a weapon that has the following attribute: "4% extra damage against elites".

Does this also apply when I am fighting bosses?


Elite monsters are any monster which have special attributes not normally found on their base type. Champions, Rares, and also Superunique monsters are all considered "elite".

Well according to the diablo wiki (not sure how "respected" this is) .

A Monster

Elite: Tough. Stronger attacks. Or both.

"Designed to make the player pause and think. High damage attack, high hit points, etc. Something different. Scary and dangerous, more so than the lieutenant. "

And bosses

Bosses (technically known as "SuperUniques") are specially named and located enemies who may have different, unique graphics and special story importance.

This would imply that a boss counts as an elite.
