I knew that we were getting Feats of Strength for completing 5.0 raids before 5.2 hit, but I was under the impression it was run Feat of Strength for completing the entire tier on normal and a second for completing the entire tier on heroic. I was quite surprised to find this Feat of Strength when I played last night.
When you earned an achievement is, in many cases, as important as whether or not you earned it at all. In my personal tracking here on Kor’kron 501st, I always note what patch I downed a boss. I’ve been hoping for a while that Blizzard would add the patch at the time of earning the achievement next to the date, but they don’t seem to think it’s important. Giving a Feat of Strength for completing a raid when it’s current fulfills the same role (at least for raids).
I hope Blizzard will continue to award this type of Feat of Strength. I wouldn’t mind seeing similar Feats of Strength for the Glory of the Raider achievements and Loremaster achievements at the end of each expansion.
