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.

Difficulty: Medium

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.
