Strategy

Light Strike Array destroys trees which can be useful against certain heroes.

Make use of Lina's long attack range to harass opponents in the lane frequently.

Light Strike Array when opponents are somewhat stationary, e.g. when they are going for a last hit or deny.

Dragon Slave is great for securing ranged creep last hits and harassing opponents at the same time.

Use Dragon Slave on creep waves to maintain Fiery Soul Stacks and keep your maximum damage potential in fights and for farming.

Lina is great at split pushing with her quick wave clear abilities, as well as pick offs due to her high movement speed and massive burst damage.

Keep fiery soul stacks up in fights to ensure you dish out your maximum DPS with right clicks and spells.

Counter Strategy

Lina's Light Strike Array has a long cast point. Look to dodge it.

Lina is a glass cannon type hero. Look to focus her in the fights.

Magic resistance and spell immunity items are great against Lina.

Gap closing items are good at getting you on top of Lina.

Lina is great at split-pushing and ratting. Consider getting Boots of Travel on a core.

Lore

The sibling rivalries between Lina the Slayer, and her younger sister Rylai, the Crystal Maiden, were the stuff of legend in the temperate region where they spent their quarrelsome childhoods together. Lina always had the advantage, however, for while Crystal was guileless and naive, Lina's fiery ardor was tempered by cleverness and conniving. The exasperated parents of these incompatible offspring went through half a dozen homesteads, losing one to fire, the next to ice, before they realized life would be simpler if the children were separated. As the oldest, Lina was sent far south to live with a patient aunt in the blazing Desert of Misrule, a climate that proved more than comfortable for the fiery Slayer. Her arrival made quite an impression on the somnolent locals, and more than one would-be suitor scorched his fingers or went away with singed eyebrows, his advances spurned. Lina is proud and confident, and nothing can dampen her flame.
