Poison Spread Lunara Build

This build has an emphasis on the late game, utilizing the powerful combination of Unfair Advantage and Intensifying Toxin to devastate enemies from a distance. Pressure enemy ranged assassins and mages out of fights with your long-ranged poison and overwhelm burst-oriented healers with your massive damage output. This build also has incredible wave-clear, camp taking and objective control, making it very strong on maps such as Battlefield of Eternity, Cursed Hollow and Braxis Holdout.



This build is weak versus melee enemies such as tanks or dive assassins, as these heroes will rush to engage you at close range, making most of your range-increasing talents obsolete. Multi-target damage is also weak versus melee divers because their single-target damage will kill you long before your poison damage forces them to retreat. On top of this, healers with very fast or multi-target healing can easily nullify your poison damage and prevent your team from securing kills. Consider talents with single-target damage such as Wild Vigor and Leaping Strike if the enemy team has several melee heroes or healers with fast, multi-target healing.
1
Natural Perspective
Nature's Toxin reveals enemies for its duration.
Natural Perspective enables Splintered Spear and Thornwood Vines to hit enemies hidden inside bushes, behind terrain and behind structures. This allows you to maximize your ability to deal damage and will help your teammates locate and kill the enemies you weaken with your poison. Consider Hippity Hop for faster rotations between lanes or for when you take single-target talents such as Wild Vigor and Leaping Strike.

Nature's Culling
Increases Nature's Toxin's damage by 125% to non-Heroes.
An exceptionally strong talent, Nature's Culling provides you with waveclear, camp taking and objective control. Poison as many structures and minions as you can while you push to maximize its value. If the poison damage deals the killing blow to a minion, you get the soak even after you leave the lane! A must-have on maps with two bosses or a non-hero objective like Battlefield of Eternity.
7
Splintered Spear
Using Noxious Blossom causes Lunara's next Basic Attack to hit up to 4 enemies. These extra attacks can apply Nature's Toxin.
Splintered Spear provides even more waveclear and greatly empowers your level 16 and 20 talents by giving you more ways to spread poison from a distance. This talent provides little value on its own, so consider taking Wild Vigor if your team is behind in levels very early in the game.
10
Thornwood Vine
Send forth vines that deal 176 damage to all enemies in a line. Stores up to 3 charges.
Thornwood Vine allows you to apply poison to enemy back liners from outside their range, letting you deal massive damage while taking none in return. Consider Leaping Strike if the enemy has a lot of divers, point and click crowd control or displacement spells.
13
Let Them Wither
Increases Crippling Spores' Slow duration by 1 second and causes it to no longer decay.
Let Them Wither empowers Unfair Advantage by allowing it to deal bonus damage for one extra second. The stronger slow also allows you to land your Q and Vines very easily. Abolish Magic is also very strong, and can be considered when fighting enemies with long duration Stuns, Taunts, or Roots.
16
Unfair Advantage
Nature's Toxin deals 60% more damage to Heroes that are Slowed, Rooted, or Stunned.
Unfair Advantage is the bread and butter of the poison spread build. With this talent, your poison will rip through the enemy back line with ease, opening up opportunities for your teammates to dive in and secure kills. Even if your teammates do not provide a lot of crowd control, this talent will still provide massive value when combined with Let Them Wither from level 13.
20
Intensifying Toxin
A 3 stacks, Nature's Toxin deals 40% more damage.
This talent adds even more damage to your poison and makes your poke damage devastating against ranged heroes. Tag enemies with Splintered Spear and Crippling Spores and then maintain three stacks of poison on them with Thornwood Vine. This talent also works on structures and non-hero monsters, giving you the ability to destroy cores and secure bosses very quickly.
