Bad against...[edit]

Anti-Mage icon.png
  • Blink allows Anti-Mage to get on top of Lina and kill her with his Mana Break.
  • Counterspell makes Anti-Mage tanky against Lina's heavy magic damage.
  • Mana Void is very strong against Lina, who has a high mana pool and quickly depletes it during fights.
Faceless Void icon.png
  • Time Walk will easily bactrack Lina burst damage and especially Laguna Blade if not timed correctly.
Lifestealer icon.png
  • Rage protects from all Lina's abilities (except upgraded Laguna Blade).
  • Open Wounds is great to keep Lina in place because she has no abilities to help her escape.
Nyx Assassin icon.png
  • Mana Burn does tons of damage against Lina because of her high intelligence. The mana burn also prevents Lina from casting her full combo.
  • Spiked Carapace can easily be used to counter Lina's abilities, because of their long cast animation and particularly reflects against timed Laguna Blade.
Phantom Lancer icon.png
  • Doppelganger can be used to easily dodge Light Strike Array if timed correctly.
  • Phantom Lancer could quickly deplete Lina's mana pool with the help of his illusions and deals massive damage from it simultaneously since Phantom Lancer is a natural Diffusal Blade 1 icon.png Diffusal Blade carrier.
Silencer icon.png
  • Arcane Curse discourages Lina from using her abilities, preventing her from building up Fiery Soul stacks.
  • Last Word and Global Silence are great against Lina for the same reason.
Slark icon.png
  • Dark Pact can be cast during the cast animation of Light Strike Array and dispel its stun.
  • Pounce allows Slark to close the gap to Lina.
  • Shadow Dance prevents Lina from killing Slark with her Laguna Blade when his hp gets low.
Spectre icon.png
  • Spectral Dagger and Haunt allow Spectre to get close to Lina.
  • Desolate is very strong against Lina, who's usually a bit isolated in fights because of her high attack and cast range.
  • Dispersion can mitigate a good portion of Lina's burst damage, allowing Spectre to turn on her afterwards.
Sven icon.png
  • Sven has high health pool and is natural Black King Bar icon.png Black King Bar holder and is very hard to kill for Lina.
  • Same time he has high physical burst damage and if he manages to stun Lina - it's hard for her to survive.
Viper icon.png

Others[edit]

Items[edit]

Good against...[edit]

Sniper icon.png
  • Sniper is one of low mobilty heroes in game and Lina can easy stun him and setup her nuke.
  • lina is one of high range heroes in game that can harass creeps safely vs sniper.
Necrophos icon.png
  • necro should choose between Lina high magical damage or her attacks combo.
  • Lina deal huge damage with Laguna Blade when he use Ghost Shroud.
Crystal Maiden icon.png
  • Low HP hero, Lina can nuke her down easily.
  • Crystal Maiden's Freezing Field is channeling, Lina can use her Light Strike Array to cancel it easily.
Enchantress icon.png
  • Enchantress has pitiful health. She cannot tank Lina's heavy magic damage.
  • Untouchable is decently countered by Fiery Soul, exposing Enchantress' weakness to physical damage due to her low armor.
  • Lina is decent at clearing creeps and can kill Enchantress' creeps quickly.
Mirana icon.png
  • Moonlight Shadow does little good against Dragon Slave and Light Strike Array.
  • Lina's damage burst can quickly kill Mirana's teammate before she saves them with Moonlight Shadow.
Terrorblade icon.png
  • Lina can control and kill Terrorblade before he casts Sunder.

Items[edit]

Works well with...[edit]

Shadow Demon icon.png
  • Disruption can set up Light Strike Array.
  • Soul Catcher heavily amplifies Lina's damage giving her even more burst damage.
Sven icon.png
  • Storm Hammer can ensure a perfect Light Strike Array.
  • Lina's long range makes her a great support to lane with Sven and harass the enemy.
Pugna icon.png
  • Decrepify can hugely increase Lina's magic damage output. The slow acts as a setup for Light Strike Array.
Bane icon.png

Others[edit]

  • Heroes with stuns or hides that can set up a Light Strike Array.
