Hero Strategy

Use Lucent Beams to secure ranged creep lasthits if necessary.

Lunar Blessing allows you and your ally to trade stronger and last hit better against the enemy heroes.

Generally two points in Lucent Beam is enough for you to secure last hits in lane and win trades with a decent nuke spell.

Max Lunar Blessing if you are still able to dominate the lane past level 5. Otherwise, keep Lunar Blessing at two levels and max Moon Glaives first for maximizing farm speed.

Alert your teammates to stack for you as you can clear stacks easily with Moon Glaives.

Alert your teammates to stack for you as you can clear stacks easily with Moon Glaives.

Prioritize farming Ancient camps once you have Mask of Madness instead of normal camps unless given free lane and tower pressure.

Make use of Manta illusions to push out lanes and farm extra creep waves that you are not able to with your hero.

Start fights with Aghanim's Shard activated for extra tankiness and damage over time.

Try to eliminate squishy heroes by jumping on top of them with Blink and bursting them.

Counter Strategy

Luna has short attack range and is susceptible to early harass. Make sure to pressure her everytime she is left alone by her support in lane.

Be mindful about trading with Luna when her support is present as they have high right click damage from Lunar Blessing aura.

Luna's Eclipse does a lot of damage. Keep distance from Luna or share damage with allied units.

Luna farms quickly due to Moon Glaives. Smoke on her, place deep wards and block camps with sentries.

Avoid clumping up in teamfights as Moon Glaives will bounce between you and your allies.
