Standard Ragnaros build. Arguably the best wave clear in the game, he has the potential to do tons of damage in team fights while staving off enemy pushes with Molten Core.
Quest: Every time you kill a Minion with Empower Sulfuras, its damage is increased by 1, up to 30. Reward: After killing 30 Minions, increase its damage by an additional 90.
Immediately skip the skirmish mid and go stack solo lane, the quicker its completed the quicker you will clear lanes.
Quest: Gathering a Regeneration Globe increases your Health Regeneration by 1.25 per second, up to 30. Reward: After gathering 15 Regeneration Globes, you can activate Catching Fire to gain Resistant for 3 seconds, reducing damage taken by 25%.
Catching Fire provides more survivability, something Rag needs to get out of a pinch.
Hand of Ragnaros
If Empower Sulfuras hits at least 2 enemy Heroes, it restores 10 Mana and its cooldown is reduced by 2 seconds.
More Q, more sustain, more damage, all of which you need should you be in a fight. If you don't think you will get Q value at this tier, Blistering Attacks is viable as well.
Release a wave of lava from Ragnaros's Core that travels down the targeted lane, dealing 60 damage per second to non-Structure enemies in its path and instantly killing enemy Minions. Damage increased by 100% versus Heroes.
Completely vaporize a lane and gain all the XP from it. In Rag's current state, he excels more at managing lanes than he does directly fighting the enemy team. This heroic fits that belief.
Empower Sulfuras heals you for an additional 40% of the damage dealt to heroes over 2 seconds.
Cauterized Wounds is the pick if the enemy team doesn't have a ton of stuns.
Empower Sulfuras burns enemy Heroes for 9% of their maximum Health over 3 seconds. This additional damage does not heal Ragnaros.
Just more damage to go along with your Q.
Lava Wave gains an additional charge and its cooldown is reduced by 30 seconds.
Lava Surge or Heroic Difficulty, whichever you feel best suits your needs. I find if I'm in the lead, Lava Surge protects that, while Heroic Difficulty is better for closer games/need to get back in it for the big play factor.
