So I pretty much finished all Cataclysm quests and yet to see any quest that leads me to Deathwing.
This is probably a dumb question, but weren't we supposed to go kill him like we did to Lich King?
Or am I missing something?

As of now, Deathwing is flying around the world, killing unsuspecting (or very saavy and suspecting) AFK players to award them with the Stood in the Fire achievement.

Similar to the Lich King in Wrath and Illidan in TBC, he is intended to be the ultimate villain of this expansion, and players can expect a final confrontation with him in a raid released in whatever the final content patch of this expansion cycle will be. Given past trends, that'll probably be a patch 4.3 or patch 4.4. Between now and then, there's the Twilights Hammer, an Old God, Deathwings kids, and a whole lot of angry Elementals to deal with, not to mention possibly some other big baddies we haven't seen too much of yet this expansion like Azshara perhaps.
