Not sure if this is intended but in realms when you defeat monsters sometimes they will drop the red orb which makes your whole team attack once each at the start of the battle. The red orb effect happens first before the even the odds perk effect from the trickster specialisation. I feel like this should be the other way round
Start-of-battle attacks come before start-of-battle casts every time. You can see the order that start-of-battle effects occur in the Codex under Combat -> Start of Battle Effects.
