I have to hand it to Blizzard - this fight is very, very epic. It hearkens back to the classic Ragnaros fight enough to brew up some nostalgia, but has been changed enough to present a challenge to even the most seasoned of WoW's raiders.My only criticism would be with the last phase. Though an ambulatory Ragnaros is handled and animated with aplomb, I can't help but feel disappointed that it is still a fairly stationary fight at that point. There is some movement, but it isn't constant motion or even very frequent motion on Rag's part. I think that when you shake up the boss's model and position to the degree that he suddenly becomes ambulatory, then that fact should take center field, and the fight should be in heavy motion for the remainder.Still though - epic fight. Congratulations to Paragon!

I am nowhere near good enough a player to attack heroic Rag before we reach tier 25 or so, but my unqualified perspective led me to believe that he was fairly stationary because of Paragon's good control over the encounter. I have a strong feeling that he was moving around a whole lot more on their previous (unsuccessful) attempts.

Well yeah, but I think it should be an inherent aspect of the fight that he needs to be moving. Kiting him, not losing control of him.

It does seem kind of weird that he grows legs and the strategy at that point is the get him not to move.
