You should avoid getting the status effect Bad Omen in Minecraft. If you have the status, going into a village starts a raid. And, unlike other status effects, it doesn’t have a cooldown timer. Bad Omen might be a powerful and important bad status, but it’s easy to use to your advantage. Unfortunately, it is also easy to treat.
What Exactly Is Bad Omen In Minecraft?
Bad Omen is a status you can get by killing an Illager Captain in Illager Outposts and Patrols. They are easy to spot because they always have scary banners behind them. It is to keep in mind that if your tamed wolf kills the Illager Captain, it can get a Bad Omen. Likewise, if you bring your wolf into the village with you, it will start a raid.
There are levels of this status. The level goes up as you kill more captains of the Illager. It only goes up to level five, which is a good thing. Keep in mind that the higher the level of Bad Omen, the more likely it is that Illagers will carry enchanted weapons when you start a raid. When the status level goes up, raids increase by one. Check out the list below to see how the raids change as the level increases in different game difficulties.
1 – In Easy Mode, Bad Omen starts with four waves (three in level 1 Bad Omen).
2 – When you have a level 5 Bad Omen, there will be six waves of Illagers (five without the level boost).
3 – In hard mode, you’ll face eight waves (seven if the level doesn’t go up).
How To Easily Get Rid Of Bad Omen In Minecraft?
Bad Omen also doesn’t have an end date. So, once you have it, you have to keep it. And you can only get rid of it in three ways.
Finishing The Raid
Fighting the Illagers to the end might seem like a lot of work, but it is worth it. First, the Hero of the Village status effect replaces your Bad Omen. The traders who sell things in the villages also give you discounts. Sometimes, these villagers from the village will also give you gifts.
Depending on the type of villager, the gifts may be different. For effect, a baby will bring you poppy flowers, an unemployed villager will bring you wheat seeds, a Fletcher will bring you arrows with random effects, and a Cleric will give you either Redstone or Lapis Lazuli. In addition, you can get XP by killing all of the waves. So, finishing a raid has many benefits, and most players use this and Bad Omen to their advantage.
Milk is one of the most important parts of Minecraft because it can remove any status effect. Bad Omen is not the only one. You can grab a bucket and right-click a cow while holding the bucket. The milk will then go into your bucket. If you drank it, it would get rid of the Bad Omen.
This is not the best way to get rid of Bad Omen since you might lose everything. But if you die while the status effect is still on you, it will go away when you respawn.
How Can I Tell If I Have Bad Omen?

What Happens If I Leave The Village While A Raid Is Going On?

Can The Raid Be Finished Without Fighting?
