This quest takes place at the Wizard Spires in Eastern Wastes at -934, -334, 2375 .
Gninja shared some more insight on how this event will play out:
The event has three stages. Stage 1: tokens spawn at fairly slow rate and low end heroic mobs spawn during the attacks. Stage 2: number of tokens spawning doubles and high end heroic encounters spawn during the attacks. Stage 3: Final epic encounter attacks and tokens again double. Once the epic encounter is defeated the event is considered complete but the tokens continue to spawn around the areas at stage 3 rate.
If you're not getting quest credit for the battle quests, not engaging in the named encounter is likely the issue:
The quest will only update if you actively engage the final named at the end of the event waves. That named is what stops the NPCs from keeping spawning. One thing I was seeing people do was standing near the spawn points where the creatures spawn and engaing and killing them very quickly this might leave some not getting update as they will not have an opportunity to get on the hate list.
