I went through the scrying pool choosing the "Public" option, in the Eye of the North. I am the only one in the "Public" instance. I completed tasks until the group event with the tanks starts. I'm the only one in the instance(SOLO)the tank escort instance I got as far as bringing down the gates with the harpoon. I successfully harpoon and bring down the gate---then everything stops. We don't enter the gates. I watch the video provided by "Ayinmaiden" where she is in a public group and after the gates open they enter them and complete the instance.
I have tried 5 times to enter the "Public" instance in hope of getting a group and being able to complete the tank instance but no luck. Can this be completed without a group??? Am I missing something?? To be honest I dislike this instance solo---not much fun and when I finally get the gates down no one moves and I can't complete the instance.
Lost yet again in GW2
