Strategy

Consider skilling Press the Attack on level 1 or 2 if you are being harassed by dispellable damage-over-time spells.

Use Overwhelming Odds to secure a range creep last hit and harass the enemy heroes at the same time.

Aggro creeps on yourself to increase Moment of Courage procs. It can be useful for denying as well.

Take your time to farm up a Blink Dagger and then start rotating around the map with a ganking partner.

Make sure not to overblink as you will land 240 units shorter than the maximum of 1200.

Duelling any hero is fine in early to midgame to collect Duel victories which will then allow you to potentially solo kill heroes.

In mid to late game make sure to Duel specific heroes and not care about Duel victory as much.

Sometimes it is better not to initiate fights, but rather stay back to save an ally with Press the Attack and turn the fight around.

Counter Strategy

In the lane against Legion Commander stay away from your partner to reduce impact of Overwhelming Odds

Avoid waisting mana on harassing Legion Commander with spells that can be dispelled by Press the Attack. Use those spells once she used Press the Attack

Avoid getting into melee range of Legion Commander

Keep an eye on Legion Commander's Blink Dagger or Shadow Blade purchase. She will want to find pickoffs so it's good to group up and bait with one hero and then to counter-attack

Good counters items against Legion Commander's duel are Eul's Scepter, Linken's Sphere and Ethereal Blade

Legion Commander takes 50% damage from other sources when duelling with Aghanim's Scepter

    Lore

    They came without warning. Within the city walls of Stonehall there came a rumble and a terrible sound, and from blackness unknown came a force of beasts numbering beyond count, wielding flame and foul sorcery, slaying and snatching mothers and sons to dark purpose. Of once-mighty Stonehall's military strength only the Bronze Legion, led by the indomitable Commander Tresdin, was near enough to answer the call of battle. They rode into their city, fighting through bloodstained alleyways and burning markets, cutting their way through the monstrous throng to the source of the sudden invasion: an ethereal rift within the city square, and at its precipice thundered their dreaded champion. Enwrapped in a corrosive shimmer, the leader of the abyssal horde swung its massive blade, cleaving a legionnaire in two as his flesh began to spoil. Tresdin lifted her blood-stained sword and settled her sights on the beast. It turned, smiling at her through a maze of teeth. Heedless of the battle raging around them, they charged one another. Deflecting blow after blow, the pair danced their deadly duel as the Bronze Legion met its end around them. Tresdin leapt forward as her foe swung its sword to meet her. The odds turned. The attack smashed into Tresdin suddenly, a brutal thrust from the side, but even as her balance slipped she rallied her strength for another stroke. Blade scraped on blade, beyond the hilt to the gnarled paw below, carving it in two in a fearsome spray of sparks and blood. The vile audience looked on in astonishment as she pressed the attack, driving her blade through her foe's flesh into the stampeding heart within. With a scream that split the clouds above, the beast erupted in a torrent of gore and anguish. The stygian portal wavered, the power sustaining the chasm beyond vanishing as suddenly as it had appeared. The remaining invaders fell quickly to Stonehall steel. Though victorious, the survivors saw little to celebrate: the city lay in ruins, and survivors were few. Fires continued to spread. Unfurling her banners of war, Tresdin gathered what allies she could. Her anger smoldered as she pledged brutal vengeance upon the forces of the abyss, and damned be any who would dare stand in her way.
