Gandaran Service Medal - Ribbon

Hi!
I wanted to do all achievements that I did not do in the past, and I ran into a problem in Long Live the Lich. The Gandaran Service Medal (do events in Kourna) achi needs you to complete 3 events where you need to destroy 3 cannons to get cannoneer's medals and ribbons and such. They are supposed to happen between meta events when the "reconfigure the cannons" events are not active.
The thing is, I waited HOURS and the event never spawned. Yet I do not see any note anywhere (wiki, or Dulffy) that there is a prerequisite for these events. They are just... suppoed to spawn between metas. I waited 3 metas and nothing.
Should I post this as a bug? Anyone know perhaps if there is a prerequisite for the event?

Thanks!

  • I'm pretty sure those events have to happen in order for the meta to actually happen. Are you sure you're waiting near enough to one of them?

    I was working on the new Leg Trinket, and am now at this step. I tried for 3 straight days...camping a cannon....doing complete start to finish, meta. Never was I able to trigger/see this.

  • If I remember correctly this achievement also took me a while because the events are very much RNGish.

    One thing that is important to note is that they can (randomly) pop up at any of the 3 cannons - so camping a single one might mean you miss the event running somewhere else on the map.
    Best way to get is probably to ask in map chat & lfg and hope people shout out if they see the event running somewhere.
