Standing in fire usually doesn't get you above the threshold anyway (or at least not high enough to make the nerf noticable)
It's single tanking on certain bosses that breaks the limit (tortos, iron qon for example)

Much better off doing those as ret to meet the dps requirements.
The only one I could manage was Epicus by standing in just about everything. Zen'shar gives no vengeance, Disruptron gives no vengeance and Milhouse hits pretty weakly so I doubt that could work either. Still though, epicus was pretty straight forward and it's just the complete lack of vengeance from discs/beams that stops Disruptron from working =p
