I am wondering if they want to keep it from us so they can keep it alive longer or if it unlocks later in the week so it stays alive though the full week

I have a feeling they are gonna keep it gated for a couple weeks but a blue mention would be groovy so we can have confirmation rather than speculating

The Fall of Deathwing is not open just yet for the Raid Finder or Heroic. We plan to open this encounter up in approximately one week. We felt it was important to let more people get through the fights in normal difficulty, make videos, strat guides, update their mods, etc. before we let everyone take a crack at Deathwing. We’ll keep you informed when this part of the raid opens up for Raid Finder. Keep in mind that it’s required to complete the first half to be able to queue for the second, so don’t hold back!

Thank you.

Could you please clarify - Fall of Deathwing is available in Normal mode, but not in either RF or Heroic? I mean, no one is even allowed to do Heroic unless they cheat an do a mid-week faction transfer, right? I think I am missing something.

I surmise it's because Eu doesn't get the patch until tomorrow.

From what I got from this, yes it is available to normal, just not raid finder or heroic.

But why would you have it open for normal and not raid finder? is the point of raid finder not for people to see content as well as learn the fights? I suppose there's always the "lets drag it out as much as we possibly can" front, but it seems kind of pointless.

however questioning it is the first step to getting it changed. Perhaps before the end of the week even.

Does knowing someone beat a neutered end boss before you irritate you that much?

Honestly there's probably an issue with LFR's version and they want to fix it before releasing it to the public. Neth seems to have just answered why the heroic version aint available as her explanation made perfect sense.

Pretty much this. I was able to kill DW on PTR in LFR with half the raid dead for the final minute of the fight. It's not that difficult, and I think Blizz wants the world first to be a bit more meaningful.
