    Stood in the fire acheive

    As we all know, you get this by being in the lucky zone that Deathwing decides to destroy entirely. My question is, once Deathwing becomes a raid boss, won't everyone wiping on him instantly get this acheivement?

    The achievement trigger is based on the effect of him flying over doing what he does.

    When he becomes a raid boss the achievement will shift into a feat of strength. And by definition, a feat of strength is an achievement that's no longer obtainable. So no, when we raid DW we will not get the achievement. However, we have up until his raid patch to get it (assuming you want it), so just keep doing what you do, and eventually you're bound to run into him.

    He's been seen in Uldum frequently on my realm, but I'm sure it's completely random.

    that is not the definition of a feat of strength.

    It's been reported that Uldum, TH and Southern Barrens are the most frequent areas, at least by my guildies.
    I don't think he is restricted to just the new zones, but maybe he's more likely to show up there or other zones that are highly affected.

    While the above may be true, unless you’re a Blizz developer, you do not know. So going around spouting it out as truth is just wrong.

    And by definition, a feat of strength is an achievement that's no longer obtainable.
    My Pally Charger, TF, Swift White Hawkstrider, Val'anyr and Deathcharger Feats respectfully disagree.

    @Firecrest: Blizz did say that until he is stopped (his raid) he will continue to go around and wreak havoc with his fire over Azaroth.

    If a guild mate gets the achievement... is there still enough time to hurry to the zone to get it too?

    I see him at least 3 times a week, usually in Uldum, or Twilight Highlands.

    I usually say it in guild when it happens, the people waiting around in Orgrimmar can usually use one of the portals to get to the zone to find some fire to stand in. When they changed the achievement so you can get it by standing in it after he leaves the zone made it a lot easier to get.

    Never saw him too.. .... wait... login screen! Does it count?

    I've been cooked several times in Twilight Highlands, but have seen him in the Barrens and Stonetalon. I got it on several alts before my main however, which sucked badly.

    Feats of Strength tab on WoW tells us this:
    Feats of Strength are accomplishments that players will find very difficult if not impossible to earn. Worth no points, Feats of Strength are a collection of past glories on Azeroth.
