Are treasure goblins elites?

  • What I mean is, does % bonus damage to elites apply to treasure goblins?

    Not asking about what kind of loot they drop here.

    Treasure goblins are highly trained professionals, specializing in the transportation of valuable goods throughout the dangerous lands of Sanctuary. They are particularly skilled at engaging evasive maneuvers when avoiding the hostilities of local Nephalem. Though the reward may be great, one must be cautious in approaching the timid and excitable Treasure Goblin, lest you find yourself guided through a gauntlet of dangerous elite packs.

    In summary, yes, % Bonus Damage to Elites applies to Treasure Goblins. ;P
