Lunara Spotlight – Heroes of the Storm


Daughters of the demigod Cenarius, the Dryads have dwelt on Azeroth since well before the time of the Great Sundering. Lunara, the first of her kind, has made her way to the Nexus, and is looking to abolish the work of anyone who wields power in an affront to nature. Lunara is an agile ranged assassin, able to deftly attack her enemies while remaining elusive. Lunara’s trait is NATURE’S TOXIN. Accompanying her basic attacks and damaging abilities, Lunara will apply a stack of poison damage to her target that will last for a short duration. Each subsequent attack will add a stack of this poison up to a maximum of three stacks. In lieu of an active mount ability, Lunara’s DRYAD SWIFTNESS causes her to bound across the battlefield, increasing her movement speed by twenty percent. Lunara’s first ability is NOXIOUS BLOSSOM. After a short delay, Lunara will cause a small area to explode with pollen, dealing damage while also adding a stack of NATURE’S TOXIN. Next up is CRIPPLING SPORES. CRIPPLING SPORES will cause all targets currently suffering NATURE’S TOXIN to slow for a short duration while instantly receiving an additional stack of poison. Lunara’s final basic ability spawns a WISP. Once summoned, the WISP can be used to freely scout an area. Lunara’s WISP will remain active until it expires or is eliminated by the enemy team. Turning our attention to Heroic abilities – Lunara’s first is THORNWOOD VINE. Cast from great range, Lunara sends out a bramble of vines that damages all enemies in its path. This ability carries three charges that can be utilized in quick succession. Lastly, Lunara showcases remarkable mobility with her LEAPING STRIKE. Launching herself over her target, Lunara deals damage to the enemy while briefly slowing them. LEAPING STRIKE carries two charges that can be used back-to-back. Lunara’s most defining feature is her base movement. She not only moves faster than most Heroes, but her bounding strides make shifting combat positions very difficult to predict. Her trait, NATURE’S TOXIN, allows her to remain elusive at range while working in attacks that increase damage to her targets over time. Use NOXIOUS BLOSSOM to spread stacks of Lunara’s poison across multiple targets at once. Poke away at range, switching targets constantly to keep stacks up, and look for the right moment to strike with Heroic abilities. THORNWOOD VINE is ideal for poke-teams who synergize well with Lunara’s play style. Use it to apply NATURE’S TOXIN across multiple targets quickly or to snipe low-health enemies at range. Keep in mind that choosing this heroic leaves Lunara with no option for quick escape; situational awareness will be even more important. If you’re looking for more mobility, LEAPING STRIKE is the undeniable answer. Be careful with this one, however, as a poorly timed use will allow enemies to capitalize on Lunara’s low health pool. Dash in and out of team fights, or reposition yourself on the perimeter quickly. Used in quick succession, LEAPING STRIKE will allow Lunara to cover remarkable distances. And finally – a word on Lunara’s WISP. Vision on the battlefield is power. Use Lunara’s WISP constantly to secure defensive awareness, allowing Lunara increased aggression in situations most assassins would fear. With a fully dedicated talent tier, the WISP can be upgraded to suit various playstyles. Lunara is here and stands as an unshakable symbol of wild strength. Will you side with nature or will you find yourself at the mercy of its most ardent aggressor? Make sure to subscribe to Heroes of the Storm here on YouTube and around the web, and we’ll see you in the Nexus!

    Hmm, don't like Lunara's design and voice, they should've tried to make her closer to the original warcraft 3 dryad.

    They should make her base movement look less clunky, seeing that awful animation all the time will make it hard to play her for me xD

    New to this game. Trying to learn it. Seems fun so far. I like how matches feel different each time due to the map and objective changes. LoL could learn a thing or two about making the game less repetitive…

    "Able to deftly attack her enemies while remaining elusive" Ha, not so much. If this game only had skillshots, maybe, but as it is even if you get hit ONCE you lose half your HP bar, and there are too many targeted abilities. She sucks. Anyone can do what she does MUCH BETTER.Also wtf, that's just plain misleading. Azmodan definitely hit her with the Orb in that clip. Terrible game, terrible designers. Oh, and WISP

    Hey stupid Lol nabs or even Dotards… Lunara is a warcraft hero! Know as the first daughther or Cenarius. Warcraft(1990) . Then Valve does the first moba on the earth. Know as Dota1. And their game does many heroes from Warcraft. Then in 2013 another moba know as League of Peasants oops I mean League of… of (I can say that word) copy paste the Dota's idea and Warcraft heroes. So if you think a bit about this Lol just copy paste thinks from 2 of the best games and elder games in the earth. Then a moba of Blizz has come out. But they din't copy paste nothing. Just the idea of Moba game. But its not the same shiet as Dota and Lol does. Lets see how many idiots want to complain me… Come douze of Peasants from league ! Come and complain me ! Can't wait ! Stupid nabs… I like those Lol players that are not complaining something that is true. I have no prob with them. But most of them are retarded morons.
