butcher glitch?

General Discussion
well, i just died hardcore inferno on the butcher. really lame. but the reason i died was that about 2 minutes into the fight the entire floor started burning, not 1 square would stop so there was no way to curb the incoming damage. is this a glitch or a mechanism built into inferno to screw people over...?
No it's a mechanism for learn2play.
You can stand on the bottom of the map without gettign flame dmg...

Thats his enrage timer. You need to be faster.
It's an "enrage timer" meaning he needs to be killed before that time elapses. This is a result of your gear not being up to scratch, unfortunately, or your skill choices/ usage not being enough to succeed.
It's a DPS check, basically. If you build super tanky and neglect DPS, it's very difficult to kill the Butcher before the entire floor is on fire.
Kill him faster.

It's another gear check. Blizzard's way of saying, "you need to use the RMAH."

LOL more like don't kill him in lvl 50 blues and you beat the timer.
You guys are missing what he wrote.

2 minute enrage timer? Probably a bug. Hopefully it won't happen to you again.
thats so stupid, i had pretty good gear. i was a monk and my dps was a bit low because i had to build somewhat tanky, so i only had him down to about 2/3 hp. that is waaay too fast of a rage timer. also, i didnt know i could stand on the bottom and not get hit. if thats true im gonna be mad haha
As has been stated to death, it's the "time limit" you have to kill him. Having the specs required to simply soak the damage he's dishing out at that diff in addition to the floor being on fire borders on insanity to me.

EDIT: Two minutes? I believe it. Not sure I've ever had a fight with the Butcher last more than 1.5 minutes.

Took me 11.5K dps on my monk to get him down but my build/gear is super defensive with little (no) spirit dumps.

At 7.5K dps I just wasn't able to burn him down fast enough.
