Diablo III Boss Titles
The official boss monster terminology in Diablo III:
Rares – single enemy of great difficulty, can have a few affixes, they’re named (randomly), much tougher, comes with a group of minions that inherit their affixes and bonusesUniques – Unique boss monsters. Unique name/art/skills/lairs(or specific location) and are usually a part of the story/goal of a quest, if not the actual end-boss of an act. The Skeleton King and the Siegebreaker would both be uniques.
The overlapping and changing (between games) nature of these terms is confusing to fans, and while an article and public vote on the naming conventions showed the most votes for the current Diablo III naming system, there was strong support for other naming systems as well.
