I'm 4/4 EC HM, so does that mean my opinion carries more weight than yours? Because I disagree.

Let's cut the posturing and look at the facts. Plenty of people have cleared this flashpoint with two melee DPS. You stand behind the boss. When coils land, the tank moves the boss to a safe location, and faces him towards the next destination. Since you're melee DPS and you have no reason to ever move off the boss (most of the time, even if the boss isn't moving because of a cast, you can still DPS him from the side and stay out of bad stuff... you know, apply a tiny fragment of thought to what you're doing), you can interrupt Incinerate. Rinse and repeat.

Does LR-5 require a bit more work when melee DPS are present? Yes. Is he hardest content in the game, some terrible wrecking ball of doom that presents a stone wall to melee DPS? Lol. No.
