The Elan edga gives a +2 bonus on any trait rolls made when spending a Benny. However, Elan is a Combat Edge. Does this +2 bonus apply to rolls made outside of combat? If so, what makes this a combat edge?

For example: If I'm making a Persuasion roll to get some help from an Uncooperative NPC, can I get a +2 by spending a Benny if I have Elan?

Yes it does. Elan can be used with any Trait test which is rerolled with a Bennie. See this question on the official forum for confirmation.

If an Edge type has any limitations on its use, it's noted under the overall description. Combat Edges just fall into a category that aid a character in dishing out damage or surviving it. If the Edge can affect other uses too, that's just a bonus.

So it applies to any reroll made with a Benny, in or out of combat.

When all else fails, turn to the official source!
