Is Black Hole a Knockback?

Is the spell Black Hole counted as knockback? It would be insane with Strongarm Bracers.

I’ve googled it and some people say it does, while others say it doesn’t, does anyone have an offical statement about that or tested this on his own?

  • Where are the spawning areas in the Southern Highlands?
  • What is the requirement to give my party members the Nephlem bonus?
  • Attack speed and its interaction with various skills
  • How much health does my Mystic Ally have?
  • How to get the remaining follower conversations?
  • Stuck on “Updating setup files…” when installing Diablo 3?
  • How can I run Diablo 3 without an administrator account?
  • What does the “reset quests” option do?
  • Is the + weapon damage% included in the displayed damage?
  • How do I determine the level and XP reward of mobs in Diablo III?
  • Dual wielding with the weapon master passive
  • Does Cold Damage Slow Enemy Movement Speed Only?
  • One Solution collect form web for “Is Black Hole a Knockback?”

    According to the majority of the posts of the D3 forums, it DOES count.

    This is the best explanation I found: Knockback tends to refer to any effect that moves the target, usually making them airborne. The direction of the movement tends to be irrelevant for it to count as “knockback”.
