It's very likely is could have changed, but according to http://www.wowpedia.org/Stood_in_the_Fire Deathwing will stop breathing on people after he has been downed for the first time on a given server.

Whoever added that to the article didn't provide a source. Without a source I can only assume it's speculative, but even if a blue did say something to that effect once, plans could have changed since then. If Blizzard is planning on ending the Deathwing spawns during 4.3, they'll tell us first.

I don't have a link for reference, but I'm pretty sure I remember them saying during blizzcon that Deathwing would continue destroying areas until he was downed. But again, I could be wrong, I'm just going by memory here.

I know "RNG" and all, but I'm wondering if they decreased the frequency of Deathwing's random appearances. I got the "Stood in the Fire" achievement on three toons in fairly short order after Cata launched, but haven't even sniffed it since.

I presume that wiping on Deathwing during the raid encounter will also grant the achievement. The criterion is "get killed by Deathwing" - nothing about how or where ;)

I presumed too soon! Seems there are hidden criteria: http://www.wowhead.com/achievement=5518That'll teach me for posting with running the text through the wowhead-checker first >.

@solecizmThose are, indeed, the criteria for now, but they could easily update the criteria in 4.3 to include deaths experienced during the raid encounter. (They've actually already updated the criteria to let you get the achievement by running into the flames after Deathwing has already set an area on fire.)

@Cephas, The Blues did indeed say that the achievement would be obtainable until the first server defeats of Deathwing. It's possible that they'll change their minds. But it's not really a good idea to do so after an achievement has already been implemented. I also don't see _why_ they would change their minds. But of course you never know.
