Her glaives weave through enemies, Her devotion calls the moon's aid, Her power chastises with moonlight, Her spells rain an endless torrent. Though her weapons refuse to be imbued with supernatural power, its keen edge still tears flesh and bone alike. Dare face her alone, and be punished in the name of the moon.

Skill Build

Early Game:


  • 4-5 player team: A circlet of nobility or two, consumables(for hp AND mana).
  • 2-3 player team: Purchase 2 circlets, ring of regeneration and consumables. slippers of agility if money allows.
  • solo play: 2x Wraith Band, Power Treads, Hp/Mana regen Items.


  • 1 melee enemy: Be wary of stuns, but fairly safe.
  • 1 ranged enemy: Probably has better range than you. might be a bit harder with 500+range. 400 or so range would have to get close to creeps to cheap shot you.
  • 2 melee enemies: Similar to having one melee enemy. Be wary of disables, as you probably won't win a 2-on-1 brawl.
  • 2 ranged enemies: Hold your ground. Will fare better than melee units, ask for assist or stay back if a nuker pair.
  • 1 ranged, 1 melee: Similar to having 2 tanged enemies. Hold your ground unless the enemy pair is unsafe to solo.


  • May be hard to last hit the creeps, due to low damage. Last hitting or targeting the creeps that aren't being damaged by yours might help.


  • Do not push yet. you need the space for a good eclipse/chase when you get to level 7.


  • Levels 3-5: Harass the opponent with regular attacks and lucent beams. Recover mana with clarities, repeat until at around 300 hp or so. Catch opponent off guard by attacking from behind, take shots and finish with a lucent beam.
  • Level 7-midgame: Catch off guard, if opponent is aggressive, lure him away from his creep wave. If he runs toward his tower, better. Cast eclipse, finish with lucent beam. don't do this when creeps are nearly depleted, as you run risk of meeting up with the next wave. Check your map for the timing of your wave and act accordingly.


  • Run. You have above-average move speed.
  • Bring a town portal scroll along.


  • Complete Wraith bandx2
  • Buy a boots of Speed


Expected items by end of early game:

Roughly 1000 gold and these items

  Wraith Band   Wraith Band  
  Boots of Speed      


  • Q: I run out of mana a lot, No Void stone/Arcane ring?
  • A: This build will not be reliant on eclipse for your kills, Mana from stats and wraith bands should suffice for an eclipse and a lucent beam's worth. Good players will be in hoods by midgame if they see you as threatening. Conserve mana if going for a kill, and make sure your spells count as much as possible. Bring Clarities.
  • Q:What's that 1K gold in the inventory.
  • A: that's 1/4 of the Sacred relic you're going to buy next, so the more there is there, the better.

Come on, don't disgrace us pinoys. I'm a filipino and I can speak good English. So don't blame your English being bad just because you're a filipino.

Some players get Helm of Dom when they play Luna, is that good?

339 By DarkgurL341 2011-03-29

LoL . . .sowe because i'm a filipino so??????

338 By Ne0aly 2011-03-29

Your english (no offence) and logic cannot be computed.

337 By mawhpawh 2011-03-29

Treads, not Threads.

Buying Cruiass as item nr. two is no good.

Buying lothars maybe 40 min into the game, eh?

336 By Cydonia 2011-03-29

@335, cuirass is terrible. get manta, the dps is much better

335 By DarkgurL341 2011-03-29

for me the item 4 luna is 4 only . . .



third: the aghanism scepter

fourth: the lothars edge

and the 5th and 6th you can decide what you prepare the item for luna anything what you want accept the orb effect items . . .
