Lunara, First Daughter of Cenarius is a dryad hero, inspired from a Warcraft III unit. She is a ranged assassin.[1]

Background Edit

Most dryads are fierce protectors of the forest, preferring to spend their days keeping watch over the trees. Lunara, however, has ventured out of the woodlands she once called home, turning her ferocity—and her spears—toward any who would seek to exploit nature’s bounty.[2]

Talent Builds Edit

Tips Edit

Matchups Edit

Pairings Edit

Aurielplate
Auriel shines when she has an ally that can consistently deal damage, steadily fueling her healing power. The consistent and predictable nature of Lunara’s damage also makes it a lot easier to use Ray of Hope’s healing efficiently, rarely wasting energy.


Genjiplate
Genji often must patiently bide his time, waiting to prey on low health heroes that can be taken down to reset his Swift Strike ability. Heroes like Lunara who do significant AoE damage are excellent for lowering the Health pools of the enemy team, setting Genji up to engage and finish them off.


Malthaelplate
Lunara's Nature's Toxin combined with Malthael's Reaper's Mark is perfect to slowly execute Heroes as they try to escape. Since damage-over-time effects stack, this results in an outstanding sustained damage that slowly cripples opponents.


Effective against Edit

Genjiplate
Lunara can bait Genji into overextending, resulting on him getting outnumbered by the opposing team. Additionally, any form of damage-over-time will continue to tick after Genji's Deflect, which makes Lunara a very dangerous enemy for him to face directly.


Malthaelplate
Despite his outstanding self-sustain, Lunara can dish out damage faster than Malthael can heal. Her natural increased speed allows her to easily avoid and kite Maltahel, preventing him to inflict her with Reaper's Mark, thus negating his only form of gap closer, Wraith Strike.


Ragnarosplate
Ragnaros has no great way to engage on enemy heroes by himself, and can be easily kited. Heroes like Lunara that have great poke and can easily run away when he tries to engage give him a hard time.


Samuroplate
Samuro lives and dies by his Wind Walk ability, and if you can find a way to make that harder to use, you will fare much better against him. Lunara’s Nature's Toxin does a great job of keeping the slippery Orc from vanishing and escaping. Although Windwalk makes Samuro unrevealable for 1 second, Lunara’s Toxin damage will break him out soon after.


Valeeraplate
Once Lunara has applied her damage over time to Valeera, it can be difficult for her to effectively Vanish during a team fight.


Zaryaplate
While Zarya’s shielding is great against predictable burst damage, she struggles against damage over time and area of effect damage. In addition, Zarya doesn’t have the lockdown necessary to really punish the fast moving Lunara.


Effective foes Edit

Malfurionplate
Altough Lunara technically has advantage over Malfurion, he can outheal her poison damage under the right conditions (namely Gift of Ysera).
