The "Elite" tag is a harder mode for one fight in ToES (first fight I think).
It's a council fight where you can kill the bosses in any order (very much like Iron Council in Ulduar). If you kill one specific guy last, you get "elite" drops, which are a half-tier up. That works on both normal and heroic.
