The problem is that Anet designed these events to require a bunch of people running around an area at all times doing everything out there, talking to all NPCs, triggering everything. Now, there's about 20 people tops in queensdale on my server at any point in time. I know this because it's consistent when people map to kill the champ troll or wasp queen as it's announced in map chat. The behemoth never spawns. I'm there daily for 2-3 hours straight farming low levels for bags, materials and dyes.

So...the event MIGHT start if you talk to some random NPC in the graveyard, do their quest, then it cascades eventually winding up with the behemoth popping in the swamp 10 levels away in the zone. The only way to know is to get people into the zone doing things again. And the only way to do that is to make it KNOWN what starts the event.

The only pre-event I know of for Queensdale is when the 3 portals spawn by the corrupted oakheart, the monastary and the friendly ettins. Once you destroy those 3 the Main event happens.

Not on Henge of Denravi.  I have wiped those portals several times and nothing else happens.  I have run various alts through that zone and the only time I was aware this event took place was the week of release. Since then it has been dead.

I'm on the Henge of Denravi and it actually was up yesterday. However, unfortunately, I have no idea how it was triggered.

The event is bugged but we might get a fix quite soon ( even though we wait for it for sooo loong -_- )


And guys , just because you found him , it doesn't mean it works.  That event did show up  few times , but that's caused by server restarts. And that would be all . Just one trigger.
And no , it doesn't pop up immediately after reset, but you can be sure that  it will pop up just this once, so worth spying after restart. :P
