I admit I've not been doing this long, I only really started trying to do the temple events last night. But in that time I've been able to find maps where all 4 other temples are contested, complete the event chain (not solo) and cleanse the temple - which got me 4/5 items I need for the Dreamer III collection.
But not Dwayna. I'm told I narrowly missed the event once, because it happened at the same time I was doing the Balthazar temple event, and I've seen the defend event start once - 3 people completed most of it, I jumped in at the end when it was obvious it wouldn't fail and got gold reward and a chest from the boss but it did not drop the item I need for the Dreamer, contrary to rumours I'd seen online.
Things I've tried:
* Waiting on the map for the temple to reset (1.5 hours last night, 1 hour so far this morning)
* Logging out and back in to try to switch maps
* Switching guilds and then logging out and back in to try and get into a different copy of the map via being grouped with guild members
* Asking my guilds to tell me if they see the temple contested
* Looking for both party and squad messages in LFG
* Creating a message in LFG looking for a contested temple
Is there anything else I've forgotten to try?
Edit: The other defend event (Risen Lieutenant, not the Priestess) started, but people decided someone who wanted the karma merchant took priority and killed it. Or maybe I didn't push hard enough because asking people to deliberately let an event fail feels absolutely wrong, but it seems like the only way.
"You can run like a river, Till you end up in the sea,
And you run till night is black, And keep on going in your dreams,
And you know all the long while, It's the journey that you seek,
It's the miles of moving forward, With the wind beneath your wings."
