Clockwork = Frustrating experience
You need to zone into the map no more than 10 minutes after the invasion starts. Otherwise, you’re likely to end up in an overflow where the event is not happening.
Invasions start at the top of the hour, so you need to get there betweek X:00 and X:10.
This event sucks balls
If it wasn’t for this event I would be 200g poorer, have less mapping done on alts, and would’ve have bothered to refine some of my builds.
If you want to do the invasion events you need to get in on time. If you’re late you can always ask if one of your guild members is currently in and can invite you into a party.
