Ragnaros is a melee assassin hailing from the World of Warcraft universe. He is great at dominating lanes with AOE, decimating minion waves effortlessly, which means farming XP to keep your team ahead in levels.
As the lord of Azeroth’s fire elementals, Ragnaros desires nothing more than to burn the world to ash. Banished to the Firelands eons ago, the Firelord now turns his rage toward the Nexus, intent on incinerating everything and everyone within it.
Hello all, and welcome to my first guide. I’m going to be talking to you about what brought me to HotS as a former LoL player and why I’ve stuck with this game after a year of playing in spite of my experience with a few other MOBAs. I’m currently ranked Platinum in Hero League.
I have over 2500 games played and a 67% winrate in Hero League this season. I can’t give you advice at the highest level of play (For that I recommend my unofficial mentors Srey, Grubby, MFPallytime, McIntyre, and CavalierGuest) but I do want to touch on a lot of the basic concepts that may seem “Duh” at first but which some of us still struggle with due to bad habits and misconceptions about how the game works.
