What you were expecting to happen, and what actually happened:
This is simply what you were trying to do and what happened instead. Example:
‘I was trying to start an Arena battle, but Gems of War loaded Broken Spire quest instead!’

Whenever your team’s troop triggers an Omen (like stone), it will trigger the enemies effects like barrier on brown (why is this still a thing) or attack debuffs from Lady Morana/Elemaugrim or getting status aliments from Magnus (Like triple death marked!)

How often does this happen? When did it begin happening?
Was this a once-off bug or has it been a consistent issue? Does it only happen after doing a particular game mode?

This happens only against teams that have traits matching it. Getting a 4 or 5 match is normally good unless against any enemy which has a perk of it. Then it is very bad and nothing you can do about it.

Steps to make it happen again
Sometimes there are certain steps that can lead to a problem that may not be obvious!
Example: I lose once in the Arena.
I then exit to the world map.
I then tap on Broken Spire on the map and then tap Arena.
Broken Spire’s quest loads instead of the Arena

Enter PvP (Quickest way)
Set up a team using a troop that has an Omen trait (Like Greed)
Find a team that has a Titan with Barrier on Brown or Magnus/Elemaugrim
Enter the battle
Hope for a 4 or 5 match before you can move
Watch the effects.


Hey Lissandra,

This is working as intended sorry!

The part that’s not working as intended is that the defending team should earn the Mana from the 4-5 Gem matches caused by Omen’s explosion but instead you receive it.

If you’d like to pass on feedback about this please do so in this section of the forum:


Cool… so that means if I enter a match and Greed triggers a ton of extra moves against an enemy Magnus then my team gets affected by tons of negative status aliments or their team gets tons of bonus positive aliments from Divinia?

I don’t think the Omen traits are all that good now…

Edit: When can we expect the ability to refund any troop with omen of as a trait? I rather not have my Greed give the enemy team all the mana they need to ruin me or have them drain 20 of my attack from 5 extra moves because of their elemaugrim. Those traits hurt a lot more than without them.
