Unable to find Keywarden in Act 2

General Discussion
I ran through the entire Dahlgur Oasis map twice in Adventure mode, on hard and expert difficulties, and then once on expert in campaign on the last quest of Act 2. Couldn't find the Keywarden on either of the three attempts. Anyone having this same issue or know of a way to fix it?
I can't find him either
I think you need to be in torment
If you have regular diablo 3 then?
Keywarden's only spawn on torment 1+.

Incorrect. Most of my games on Expert and Master I encounter the Keywardens, but lately I have been running into the same problem as the OP. Just yesterday I killed the Act I keywarden in the Fields of Misery, but the last two times I went through Act III the keywarden hasn't been there, and the last time I went through Act II he wasn't in the Oasis.

Something odd afoot, imo.
I have trouble not finding him, the spinning warden is in the oasis I have 4 key's from it. I hope you have better luck next time map roll's.

I have not found him yet in torrent act3, but I think he shows up when you are raising the catapults.
Key Wardens are only supposed to appear in games set to Torment difficulty, since that's when they start having a chance to drop a key. However, there is a bug that allows them to sometimes show up in games set on a lower difficulty than Torment 1, but it's not meant to work that way.
i always find them in normal. intended? but they never drop any keys.

Same here. Been levelling my HC Barb the last couple days on normal and hard and am regularly finding the wardens. Just killed Odeg twice tonight on normal while running bounties

Them appearing below torment is a bug. Them not dropping keys below torment is intentional

Act 1 key warden shows up on lower difficulties. It has been that way for as long as I can remember.
The Act 1 Keywarden is ALWAYS spawned on normal. Ive seen it every time I was there. At least when I wasnt just running through.

Yeah since when was this a bug? I thought the keys were the only thing supposed to be appearing in torment.
Key wardens are found in act 1 field of misery ,act 2 Dalgar oasis ,act 3 Stone fort ..now the question is when you craft the
Keys where do you open them in act 5 to spawn the new Bosses ??

There is no keywarden in act 5. The keywardens in act 1-4 at 70 drop new keys, and yes the act 4 boss drops a key of their own. And supposedly each has a small chance to drop 1 of the keys they normally wouldnt.
I used to farm that guy on normal at lvl 60.

Only once have i not seen him (when i was paying attention) and since there was another random unique on the map that time (of the same mob type even), i assumed them incompatible.

Later, i encountered that same mob as a bounty, and killed the keywarden in the process of collecting...

Who knows.

Maybe they should have a small chance to drop keys until the bug is fixed. And maybe they should be brought down a few difficulties as well since there's nothing special about torment aside from it being an arbitrary line in the sand and where the creative team ran out of names.
