I want a small buff

I noticed during my ragnaros career that VERY few people actually pick Q build ( unless a rag main coached them or they are smort people ) and many ppl value E build and W build in ARAM but not Q. my suggested buff is to make the initial target also take spell damage, and to put a 20% radius increase with the lvl 1 quest.

This will allow for a ton more flexibility and will reduce the existing counters ( illidan, blinds, freaking ILLIDAN xD ) and these buffs are not stat buffs, which makes them alot more acceptable and wont actually buff ragnaros that noticeably. ( im 90% sure this wont make his popularity go up more than 1% )

what do u think?

Just took a look at Ragnaros’s talent stats to see what’s going on. To be honest, his Level 1 talents are as close to perfectly balanced as you can get when looking at the whole game, and they get a bit worse, but still great for Q build, when you get to high level (this is extremely common, so I wouldn’t read too much into it since high level players tend to be much pickier about what they will take when it comes to talents).

Across the whole game, the pick rates look like this:

  1. Engulfing Flame: - 34.6%
  2. Sulfuras Hungers - 33.9%
  3. Shifting Meteor - 31.4%

High Level Storm League:

  1. Engulfing Flame - 46.6%
  2. Sulfuras Hungers - 40.8%
  3. Shifting Meteor - 12.5%

Also the win rates of the talents aren’t anything to write home about, they’re all pretty similar.
