Incenerates, adds, lightning, fire grates)

Edit: Enrage timers should only exist for 2 reasons:

1) To prevent stacking of healers (something that is not an issue in a 4 man dungeon)
2) To provide a raw gear check in a tank and spank type fight

Any other reason is just lazy design, imo.
This is a fair point, and I was mainly just throwing numbers around because I like them.

According to the Jesse Sky info that Allison gave us, the instance was balanced "very tightly" for Tionese-quality gear. Based on my personal experience with the LR-5 fight in particular, I read that as "executed perfectly without a single flub"

It would be interesting, if my group gets a wild hair up our collective fundamental aperatures, to spend the Tionese commendations that have collected in the bank and re-gear 4 of us and see if we could beat the fight. I'll bet we wipe a bunch of times as we currently run LR-5 sloppy (being overgeared). But once we bang the sloppy out of it, I'll think we could pull it off.

That said, I believe the enrage timer isn't really the issue with this fight mainly because I don't see people complaining about "getting him to 5% every time." Most threads about LR-5 involve people wiping far earlier than the enrage.
