What you were expecting to happen, and what actually happened
I was doing some Explore to get Green/Brown traitstones in Zaejin kingdom.
Then 3 gnomes appeared.
I killed them all, and I got no rewards from them.
(I did notice the ‘bag’ that usually appear in the top-left corner of a gnome troop wasn’t here)

How often does this happen? When did it begin happening?
I needed 3 traitstones, got 2 already, and the ‘bug’ appeard twice, first is the screenshot you can see, the second one was with 2 gnomes. (and same happened, no rewards, and no bag appearing at the top left of the troop)
It happened to me since I started my Explores, first time seeing that ‘bug’. I’ll edit if I see more later.

Steps to make it happen again
I started to do 1 Delve, and after I wanted to change team, and see that I missed a trait on a troop, and finally decided to go farm traitstones at Zaejin kingdom.

People use that on defense, if it has a bag, it’s a reward gnome, if it is missing a bag, it’s a normal troop.


#3

Isn’t supposed to have a bag those who drop stuff?


#4

It is an Explore Battle, so what’s the matter with defense teams ? o:


#5

I’n never seen gnomes appear in explore like that, but if they don’t have a bag, it’s not considered a reward gnome.


#6

Because people use gnomes all the time on defense, I guess now they are in the troop pool in explore, as well.


#7

Gnomes can not have rewards when appearing in explore battles ? o:
With 3 appearing, I had really any luck if so --"


#8

I just fell on a 4 times gnomes. 2 Tresure gnomes + 2 Soul gnomes and only the 4th has a bag on the troop :x


#9

Please read this IF THEY HAVE A BAG ON THE CARD they are a reward gnome, no bag = not a reward gnome. Your gnomes did not have bags, so they were not reward gnomes, they were simply normal troops that happened to be gnomes.


#10

It’s good you posted this though, as the gnomes being in explore card pool might be a bug.

And I’m sure a lot of people will be coming here posting something much like you did, as it is new to see gnome troop cards in explore like that.


#11

Zaejin :rofl:


#12

I knew players troll and put them in defense, had no idea gnomes without bag are a thing in explore.


#13

There has been some odd gnome movements reported in our guild also including this subject.

Gnomes popping up in raid and pet rescues which we never saw back in 3.5 :thinking:

Screenshot is from yesterday’s pet rescue

As to identify further the real and fake gnomes.

  1. Check the roster before the fight, if a gnome sits in the enemy team it’s a fake.

  2. At the start of the battle a real gnome makes a manic laugh, a fake doesn’t.

  3. Check for the money bag next to the portrait like advised above.

it really sucked when I started a raid fight and the gnome took Zuul Goth’s spot. No chance of points=sadness😢


#15

Gnomes can appear in Explore battles without loot occasionally, it’s not a bug.

@ArkadeADD1CTif you write a support ticket with the date/time this issue occurred we’ll look into that for you. Please put it in the ‘Missing Rewards’ category.


#16

Okay, thanks for the info, and sorry for the inconvenience. :slight_smile:


#17

Nah, it’s fine. It gave me a vault key and got me past a tough fight. Really happy I got the vault key as it is the first one I got from a gnome in a long time.

This has been happening a lot to me. I think Cedric Crinklesack is appearing because I’ve been using him recently (I’ve noticed in explore troops you’ve been using a lot tend to appear randomly). However I had a battle Thursday night that had a treasure gnomes, soul gnime, and Cedrick. All with no bags or rewards. This is all happening in explore. I KNOW people use gnomes in PVP to “trick” people. But I was getting double or triple gnomes with no bags in explore. When is restart my game I’d get regular gnomes again, until Cedrick showed up, after that I would find gnomes with no loot bags.

I’ve begun restarting the game after I get a gnome with no loot bag in explore. Seems to help, but it’s really annoying.

Screencap of 3 gnome battle in explore that was discussed.

This also happened around the same time as the other. I accidentally blew up the treasure gnome in the first slot before I took a screenshot. But it was 2 treasure gnomes, and a soul gnome, no nahs, in explore.

I’ve had it happen a bunch with one or two treasure gnomes at a time. I just didn’t think about screenshots until later.

Here is one more, from explore in Zaejin
