Despite our most valiant efforts, we were't able to make it three weeks in a row of 3:01 kills.
I can't say I'm terribly fond of fights that rely heavily on timer usage to keep tanks alive, and this one is right up there. There seem to be competing ways to complete it: either stack DPS to beat the large buff stack on the boss, or stack timer-bearing heals to keep tanks up. Our kill ended up being a little messy but it feels very repeatable, and as the night went on people got a lot better at avoiding the supposedly-unavoidable insta-kill damage. Who'd have thought? Now that the "easy" watchers are out of the way, it's time to really buckle down for Freya and Mimiron.
The real trick to this fight was finding the exact thirty-minute period during which the server is not lagged to heck, and our raiders are neither at work nor asleep. Succeed at that, and the loot was ours!
