Tips & Tactics
- Because Luna has no means of escaping ganks, she is usually played in the safe lane, with a support. Her Lunar Blessing increases the attack damage from ally supports, making lane harassment easier.
- Luna can be played in a solo lane, but this is risky due to her fragility and short attack range.
- Playing Luna solo is usually done to give her a level advantage early on, because she can snowball off of an early team fight with Eclipse and catch up in farm very quickly with Moon Glaives.

- Luna is an extremely potent pusher, especially when attacking barracks, as her Moon Glaives will bounce between multiple buildings with each attack.
- Because of this, Luna should be present as often as possible to take down towers with her team.
- Any source of lifesteal greatly boosts Luna's survivability in the late game.
- Creep stacking is very useful for Luna. Ask an ally to start stacking for you early on.
