I am playing a game http://orbsccg.com/games/vbz869m where salon has 3 Barracks out in play. He was attacking me with a 6/4 Justice Knight (along with other things) and I decided to use swapstaff on it. Lo and behold, it becomes a 7/9 Justice Knight. It appears that when Swapstaff is used (or probably Swapstone as well) while there are Barracks in play, the AP and HP swap, then Barracks seems to think the card has not been buffed by it already and adds additional buffs.

swapstaff and swapstone are bugged in general. Any kind of buff confuses it. OoU is hilarious with it.

Indeed. Even Orb of Hostility can do weird things with Swapstaff.

Is this behavior of Swap Staff and Swapstone intentional? If not, when are they going to be fixed? I have recently encountered such a behavior, that’s why I am asking…

Yeah, it’s a known issue… Swapping will swap everything.

Based on other games, Hearthstone as an example, the effects are the same. If a units stats are swapped, global buffs re-apply. Temporary buffs still detract from the changed stats, so a 1/1 that gets +2 attack would become a 1/3 when swapped, before becoming a 0/3 when the buff ends.
