Today we all got extremely lucky. The Adventure Board gave us a mythic key task! Those with the Pest Control campaign task (“Defeat 3 Treasure Gnomes”) got even luckier, since they could defeat red gnomes—you know, Treasure Gnomes—without spending a vault key or waiting for a random appearance.
However, my guild mate is reporting that red gnomes do not count as Treasure Gnomes for the Pest Control task. It’s too late for him to take a screenshot, so maybe someone else can catch proof of this.
Assuming my guild mate is correct in this, that’s quite ridiculous. The troop’s name is exactly the same as the text string in the campaign task. How can a “Mecha Gnome” and a “Soul Gnome” count as “Treasure Gnomes” but a “Treasure Gnome” can’t?
