No one likes curses and we are sure, you don’t too. So, if Minecraft’s Bad Omen is bothering you, don’t worry as we are here to help. First of all, just to be clear, we are talking about Bad Omen here and not Bad Luck, which is a different status effect. The bad omen status effect is a rather new addition to Minecraft and first, let’s understand what it is.
What is Bad Omen?
Bad Omen is a status effect in Minecraft, that causes a raid to appear when an afflicted player enters a village. It does not apply to any other mob with the effect if the mob is in a village. Bad omen can be given to only players and tamed wolves, upon killing an illager captain. So, when a tamed wolf kills an illager captain, it gives their player the bad omen effect but other mobs that kill an illager captain do not get the effect.
You may come across these in groups of illagers, and you easily can tell which illager in a group is the raid captain because it will have an ominous banner on its back. But it’s not like anyone wants to get a bad omen so, let’s get to what it does and how you can get rid of it.
In Java Edition, Bad Omen’s potency determines the chance for illagers to be equipped with enchanted weapons, when the player triggers a raid by entering a certain radius around a bed claimed by a villager. Bad omen lasts 1 hour and 40 minutes (100 minutes) and the higher the potency of your bad omen, the worse the raid spawn is going to be.
Higher Bad Omen levels will also give one extra raid wave according to the difficulty level. For example, with Bad Omen II-V, Easy will have 4 waves instead of 3, Normal will have 6 waves instead of 5, and Hard will have 8 waves instead of 7, which makes your task a little more difficult.
Also, in Bedrock Edition, regardless of the Bad Omen level, it always has the same effect and does not trigger raid mobs getting enchanted weapons or an extra wave.
Now that we know what it is and what it does, its time to get to the point and enlighten you with the ways you can get rid of it. Conventionally, there are two ways to do this:
Well, that doesn’t sound right and most of you won’t want to do that and lose your progress, but hey, that is one way to do it.
2. Drinking Milk
A more logical way to go would be to drink milk. All you need is a bucket and either a cow or a mooshroom to get some milk. This finally makes the cow much more useful, and its milk can help you remove the Bad Omen. A Bad Omen could cause unnecessary hindrances in your path and therefore, you should be ready with a plan and some milk before you go on Bad Omen causing adventures.
If you can’t find any milk, just keep on fighting harder and if you can’t do that, well, you can always die. But we recommend having a better plan!
