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.

Now every under geared hero in the game is gonna be stacking % bonus damage to elites so they can kill goblins in higher MP's than they could before. It's one more affix for the flippers to gouge prices on.

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

Hmmm...would be cool if we could jump in their portal and teleport to goblin village. A special stage of enormous loot plundering...but the catch is u can only carry as much as your inventory can cause its a one way trip in and out.

It'll be one hell of a cat and mouse chasing game in there with hidden traps waiting. So chase carefully..heh

goblin should not flee but in the end before the portal jump

turn around and have an enraged affix

btw I think the home or the goblins are VERY VERY poor.

How many gob have you let it run from your hands?

There are no treasure at the other side of the portal.. just some starving goblin waiting for food.

Shouldn't the treasure goblin give you valor if it's an elite kill.

Illusionist gobs would be cool! Unique (purple) ones with distinct designs too. And they should definitely give a NV!
