Bad against...[edit]

Abaddon icon.png
  • Aphotic Shield and Mist Coil makes it hard for Legion Commander to kill Abaddon's teammates in Duels.
  • Borrowed Time makes Abaddon nearly impossible to kill in Duels, and often replenishes much of his health because Legion Commander cannot manually stop attacking during Duels.
Bane icon.png
Dazzle icon.png
  • Shallow Grave prevents Legion Commander from killing her opponents within the Duel time frame.
Dragon Knight icon.png
  • Dragon Knight's high natural armor and health regeneration from Dragon Blood makes him hard to take down in Duels.
Io icon.png
  • Tethered heroes are much harder for Legion Commander to kill in Duels.
  • Relocate can cancel Duels and save allies.
Medusa icon.png
  • Mana Shield makes Medusa very hard to take down in Duels.
  • Stone Gaze stops Legion Commander from Dueling altogether, regardless of who she targets.
Omniknight icon.png
  • Purification prevents Legion Commander from killing her target, and will always hit her during Duels.
  • Guardian Angel completely wastes Duel's duration, and can save an ally across the map when upgraded with Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter.
Oracle icon.png
  • Fate's Edict prevents Legion Commander from attacking for a few seconds, potentially saving Oracle's ally.
  • Fortune's End dispels Press the Attack's healing and buff.
  • False Promise protects allies and prevents Legion Commander from winning Duels and gaining bonus damage.
Pudge icon.png
Pugna icon.png
  • Decrepify on either hero stops Legion Commander from completing a Duel, and dissuades her from initiating Duels on ethereal allies.
  • Life Drain can help Pugna's teammates win a fight, either by killing Legion Commander or replenishing her target's health.
Razor icon.png
  • Static Link drains Legion Commander's accumulated damage, effectively neutralizing her overall primary advantage, and prevents her from winning Duels.
  • Unstable Current dispels the buffs from Overwhelming Odds and Press the Attack the moment Legion Commander targets Razor with Duel. Its movement speed buff also makes Razor harder to catch and initiate on.
  • Eye of the Storm, if used beforehand, will always hit Legion Commander during Duels, due to her forced proximity. This drastically lowers her armor, and increases her chance of dying before completing the Duel.
Treant Protector icon.png
  • Living Armor's global range makes it nearly impossible for Legion Commander to win Duels in the early to mid-game.
Underlord icon.png
  • Atrophy Aura's percentage-based damage reduction greatly diminishes Legion Commander's overall damage output, even if she has won many Duels.
  • Dark Rift can be used to save Underlord or his allies from Duels if properly timed.
Ursa icon.png
  • Enrage's instant cast time allows it to be used before Legion Commander initiates a Duel, causing Ursa to take almost no damage.
  • Fury Swipes can give Ursa the edge in Duels.
Visage icon.png
  • Gravekeeper's Cloak protects Visage from Legion Commander's attacks for most of Duel's duration.
  • Chain stuns from Visage's familiars prevents Legion Commander from winning Duels.
Vengeful Spirit icon.png
Winter Wyvern icon.png
  • Cold Embrace saves allies from dying in Duels.
  • Winter's Curse turns Legion Commander's high damage against her allies, giving the enemy team little time to react.
Witch Doctor icon.png
  • Maledict and Death Ward are easy to target and will deal maximum damage when Legion Commander is stationary during a Duel.

Others[edit]

Items[edit]

  • Ghost Scepter icon.png Ghost Scepter stops Legion Commander from attacking during Duels, but has to be used beforehand.
  • Ethereal Blade icon.png Ethereal Blade stops Legion Commander from attacking during Duels.
  • Heaven's Halberd icon.png Heaven's Halberd stops Legion Commander from attacking during Duels, and gives its owner evasion even after the active ability ends.
  • Eul's Scepter of Divinity icon.png Eul's Scepter of Divinity interrupts Duels and dispels the buffs from Press the Attack and Overwhelming Odds.
  • Linken's Sphere icon.png Linken's Sphere prevents Legion Commander from initiating Duels. This negates her ability to gank targets by herself, forcing her to stick with her allies.
  • Solar Crest icon.png Solar Crest's armor and evasion buffs protect both its owner and their allies from being killed in Duels. It can also be used on Legion Commander to give an allied opponent the advantage.
  • Blade Mail icon.png Blade Mail can cause Legion Commander to take more damage than her target, especially if she has won many previous Duels.
  • Mekansm icon.png Mekansm makes it harder for Legion Commander to kill an allied opponent.
  • Aeon Disk icon.png Aeon Disk stops Legion Commander from killing opponents during Duels.

Good against...[edit]

Anti-Mage icon.png
  • Duel locks down Anti-Mage for a long duration, preventing him from escaping with Blink. One successful Duel initiation is usually enough for Legion Commander's team to kill Anti-Mage.
Bristleback icon.png
  • When dueled, Bristleback will have to face Legion head on, not allowing his passive Bristleback to come into effect.
Broodmother icon.png
  • Overwhelming Odds is great at killing many densely packed spiderlings, thus giving Legion Commander a large buff.
  • Duel is a reliable way to lock down Broodmother, preventing her from running into the treeline.
Chen icon.png
  • Chen's frailty and low mobility make him an enticing Duel target.
  • Overwhelming Odds and Moment of Courage can take advantage of converted creeps' numbers.
  • With enough damage from Duel stacks, Legion Commander can also often kill any of Chen's unfortunate allies before he can use Hand of God.
Drow Ranger icon.png
  • Drow Ranger's low mobility and lack of defensive abilities makes her an easy gank target in the early to mid-game.
Huskar icon.png
  • Life Break is almost suicidal when used on Legion Commander, as it invites an instant Duel and she is a natural Blade Mail icon.png Blade Mail carrier.
  • Huskar's low armor (and a lot of time low health) makes him particularly vulnerable to Legion Commander's high physical damage.
Sniper icon.png
  • Sniper's low mobility and lack of defensive abilities makes him an easy gank target in the early to mid-game.
Terrorblade icon.png
  • Duel's long duration prevents Terrorblade from swapping his health with Sunder.
  • Overwhelming Odds deals high damage to Terrorblade's illusions.
Weaver icon.png
  • Duel's long duration prevents Weaver from activating Time Lapse or escaping with Shukuchi.

Others[edit]

Items[edit]

  • Lotus Orb icon.png Lotus Orb isn't really an obstacle for Legion Commander, and assuming she is dueling on her own terms, it will simply double her Duel winnings.
    • Don't use Lotus Orb on an ally that has a Linken's Sphere icon.png Linken's Sphere, because Legion Commander can't cast duel through it anyway.
  • Orchid Malevolence icon.png Orchid Malevolence's silence can be dispelled from allies by Press the Attack.

Works well with...[edit]

Ancient Apparition icon.png
Disruptor icon.png
  • Glimpse and Kinetic Field helps keep enemies away from the Duel, preventing them from helping their ally.
  • Static Storm will deal its full damage when an enemy is immobilized in a Duel. Its damage can also help Legion Commander win that Duel.
Invoker icon.png
  • Duel is perfect setup for all of Invoker's nukes especially for Sun Strike across the map.
  • Alacrity benefits Legion Commander greatly during Duels.
Lifestealer icon.png
Mirana icon.png
  • Sacred Arrow sets up long duration stuns for Legion Commander to initiate on.
  • Moonlight Shadow also helps Legion Commander initiate Duels, especially in the early game.
Shadow Fiend icon.png
  • Requiem of Souls used on top of a Dueled opponent will usually result in an instant kill.
Silencer icon.png
  • Global Silence can prevent disables from being used on Legion Commander during Duels.
Skywrath Mage icon.png
  • Mystic Flare easily bursts down targets while Legion Commander locks them in place with Duel.
Ursa icon.png
  • Fury Swipes can be stack on Dueled enemies for a quick kill in the early game.
Witch Doctor icon.png
  • Maledict and Death Ward are easy to target and deal maximum damage on immobilized enemies during Duels.
  • Voodoo Restoration can be used right next to Legion Commander to keep her standing in Duels.
Zeus icon.png
  • Zeus' heavy magical nukes, as well as the global damage from Thundergod's Wrath and Nimbus, helps Legion Commander win Duels.
