I'd like to think that I'm an "open-world event" enthusiast. My favorite thing to do in GW2 is to run open-world events for fun and for the loots. Recently I've come to like Kourna. Probably an unpopular opinion, but I think it's a great map to do events solo or with a group. The events and meta are frequent enough to where I could continue playing this map for a long period of time..at least for the event that actually do give rewards. I think a few small updates could really make this map shine for what it is. Below is a list of events that are bugged, possibly bugged, or (in my opinion) needs a little polish.

Event Name: "Kill the mutated rats" -> "Help Researcher Emm track the origin point of the mutated rats"
BUG: The first event does not spawn. Therefore, the second does not either. A lot of people need this because it is the only way to reach this POI https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Research_Vault_Beta
PROOF: https://imgur.com/a/T23fDey (The NPC has been here for many days)

Event Name: "Protect Apizmic Grounds from a choya attack" AND "Retake Apizmic Grounds from invasive choya"
BUG: None of the mobs give volatile magic, or loot

Event Name: "Safely escort the caravan from the ally camp to the farmlands"
BUG: None of the mobs give experience, volatile magic, or loot
PROOF: https://media.giphy.com/media/69v7fGNa3oopcj6fHS/giphy.gif

Event Name: "Stop the thieves from escaping the farmland with stolen supplies"
BUG: None of the mobs give experience, volatile magic, or loot
PROOF: https://media.giphy.com/media/WS3kTtC55YIpk6Z9bF/giphy.gif

Event Name: "Recover the supplies taken by Joko's loyalists"
BUG: None of the mobs give experience, volatile magic, or loot
I don't have proof on this...but NONE of the loyalist drops loot in the map anyway.

Event Name: "Protect the thorn wall from the Awakened"
BUG: None of the mobs give volatile magic or loot
PROOF: https://media.giphy.com/media/1yTgp7ZOfVsxzv42ji/giphy.gif

Event Name: "Defend the thorn wall shapers while they repair the wall"
BUG: None of the mobs give volatile magic or loot
PROOF: https://media.giphy.com/media/5vYCBeXMcI5CgpFxM0/giphy.gif

Event Name: "Repurpose the golem"
BUG: Champion golem at the end does not drop a champ bag, volatile magic, or any kind of loot
PROOF: https://media.giphy.com/media/8vwExtnEJF8YhWXilN/giphy.gif

Event Name: "Help Researcher Siris test his Rez-o-Matic device"
BUG: The first part of the event where you kill inquest does not give volatile magic, or loot but the second part does.

The Meta Event
I understand why the mobs in Gandara don't drop loot. I assume it's because, when it used to, people would prevent the meta from progression and just farm the mobs. I think that part of the meta is fine. The rewards are decent. Here is my bugs and suggestions:

Event Name: "Secure the [eastern, northern, western] Awakened Inquest cannon"
BUG: This is similar to the event "Disable the Awakened Inquest cannon before it can fire", but the main difference is that event gives experience, volatile magic, and loot while this one does not.

Event Name: "End the plague experiments"
SUGGESTION: For the golem boss, can I suggest adding a breakbar and/or lower the toughness? There's barely any mechanics in the fight and it takes a while to kill this one guy. It tends to be a time to zone-out because there's nothing to do but to tank/spank.

    The lack of loot is intentional.

    Logging out forever.

    This one is super annoying and as you have 'fixed' the map complete for the newest map, Thunderhead Peaks, I highly suggest something like that either be done here, or Emm gets some new coding where his event(s) stop hanging. I got lucky and was able to do this a few days ago, but going through the same map on another alt has proven frustrating and many people in map asking if these events are still bugged as it's needed for map completion.
