"THIS WORLD AND ALL THAT YOU HOLD DEAR EXIST ONLY TO BURN!" One of the four Elemental Lords, Ragnaros the Firelord is one of the most powerful forces on Azeroth.

Warcraft Wiki icon.pngThis section uses content from the Warcraft Wiki.
Ragnaros The Firelord and his brethren once held sway over the entire world. As a servant of the Old Gods, he fought against the Titans for domination over the planet. The victorious Titans banished him and his brethren to the Elemental Plane — there to remain imprisoned until the end of time. It was then and there that the brothers turned on each other. For five millennia a battle was fought at the core of this world. It was during the Elemental Sundering that Ragnaros attacked Thunderaan, Prince of Air. Thunderaan was utterly defeated and the Firelord feasted upon his essence, but was unable to consume him entirely. Ragnaros divided what remained between his servants,  Baron Geddon and  Garr.
In the center of a vast lake of fire in the Elemental Plane stands Sulfuron Keep, the home of Ragnaros. Until comparatively recently, he ruled his underground land with a molten iron fist.

In the alternate reality of Whispers of the Old Gods, Ragnaros is "uncorrupted" into  Ragnaros, Lightlord, turning to lead the fight against the Old Gods.


  • With the release of Blackrock Mountain, Ragnaros was the most diversely-featured character in Hearthstone, featuring as a minion card, a boss, a replacement hero, and a narrator for the Blackrock Mountain adventure. The only comparable character was  Nefarian, who featured as a minion card, a narrator, and three separate bosses.
    • However, as of Galakrond's Awakening,  Reno Jackson has the most representation in Hearthstone; being a narrator for three Solo Adventures (League of Explorers, Saviors of Uldum, and Galakrond's Awakening), three playable Heroes in Solo Adventures (Reno Jackson [Saviors of Uldum], The Amazing Reno, and Renogos [Galakrond], a Boss in Galakrond's Awakening, two Legendary Minions, (Reno Jackson, Reno the Relicologist) and lastly a Mage Hero Card (The Amazing Reno).
  • The version of Ragnaros featured in Hearthstone is the original legless version, as opposed to the two-legged version introduced in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm.[1]
  • Ragnaros's ability is similar to Auto-Attack, but does not use that keyword, which was introduced later.
