    Mirana Nightshade, Priestess of the Moon

    Introduction
    With good reason, Mirana has emerged as arguably the most-often picked hero in higher-level play. Since her introduction, she has consistently been a top pick and ban, and is considered among the ranks of the most balanced heroes in DotA (if not the most).

    Able to fit into virtually any team line-up, Mirana provides strong ganking power early-game and can be turned into a viable semi-carry later on. With one of the best disables in the game, a high-damage nuke useful for both ganking and farming, and two escape/initiation mechanisms (one global and team-based), Mirana has one of the most lethal skillsets in the game if utilized properly.

    Overview of PotM's stats:
    STR: 17 + 1.85x
    AGI: 20 + 2.75x
    INT: 17 + 1.65x
    HP: 473
    MP: 221
    DMG: 38-49
    ATK Range: 600
    Armor: 1.7
    MS: 300


    Skills


    Starfall: A great nuke that can be used for ganking earlier on and farming later in the game. It has a relatively large range, and even has a chance to still strike the enemy if they're slightly out of it.


    Elune's Arrow: Mirana's signature skill, Elune's Arrow has the potential to be the longest single-target stun in the game. With a bit of practice, it can be one of the greatest ganking skills in DotA, and absolutely devastates in the laning phase with an adequete lane partner.


    Leap: Mirana's personal initiation/escape tool, Leap can be used both to enter battle with a MS and IAS boost, or to escape from potentially dangerous situations. Leap can also be used to dodge most stuns in the game.


    Moonlight Shadow: Although Moonlight Shadow has a high mana cost and long fade time, it is countered fully by the ability to grant your entire team invisibility for a few sweet seconds. Usable from saving a teammate to initiating with ease, MS is a great global ability with much utility.

    Skill Build:
    Skill Build
    The cookie-cutter build:
    1 - Elune's Arrow / Leap
    2 - Leap / Elune's Arrow
    3 - Starfall
    4 - Starfall
    5 - Starfall
    6 - Elune's Arrow
    7 - Starfall
    8 - Elune's Arrow
    9 - Elune's Arrow
    10 - Moonlight Shadow / Leap
    11 - Leap / Moonlight Shadow
    12 - Leap
    13 - Leap
    14 - Moonlight Shadow
    15 - Stats


    from this point on, L3 Moonlight Shadow can be taken at any level based on the circumstances of the game. If your team needs the extra 2-second duration and the shorter fade-time, it's perfectly acceptable to grab the last level.

    16~24 - Stats
    25 - Moonlight Shadow

    Item Build
    As PotM is one of the most versatile heroes in the game, her item build both depends on the role she intends to play as well the needs of her team.

    This guide will be focusing on a ganker build early-game. Additional options that work well with Mirana will be listed under the next section.

    Best Allies

    Fellow disablers such as CM (Frostbite, Aura), Bane (Grip, Nightmare), and Rhasta (Voodoo, Shackles, Wards) are great allies for Mirana, allowing her to land her arrow easily. Heroes that have ground-targetted snares (e.g. Kunkaa, Lina) will find Mirana's Arrow a godsend as it allows them to easily land their spells. Any hero that detracts attention from Mirana (Axe, Tidehunter, etc) and allows her to not be the one absorbing the damage is also good ally of hers.

    Some heroes can really take advantage of Moonlight Shadow. Initiators like Shaker or Tidehunter that can use the invisibility to set up the perfect Ravage or Echo Slam or channelers like Crystal Maiden that can abuse the invisibility to disappear off the map for a short duration while channeling will all appreciate Moonlight Shadow.

    A major point to make is that Mirana a hero that will fit into almost any line-up, which is why you almost always see her in higher-tier play. Mirana isn't a hero you should be shy to pick, and will work well in most games.

    Worst Enemies:

    Stunners and heroes with long disables make short work of Mirana, disabling her ability to leap out of dangerous situations. For the same reason, Silencers such as Krob, Drow, and Bloodseeker also destroy her ability to get out of sticky situations.

    Other heroes to watch out for are heroes with high burst damage combos (NA, Lion, Lina) or heroes with long DoT spells that might still kill you even if you're long gone (Doombringer, Venomancer's Poison Sting + Nova combo). Any hero that eliminates PotM's escape mechanism is always a constant threat on the battlefield.

    Its interesting that worst enemy isnt even mentioned.

    That is defenetly bloodseeker who makes potm a -1 hero.

    Silence totally neutralize potm and makes a free kill early/mid game.

    The point of levi/es being good allies with potm is not about ulti... Its about very strong line domination they make in the combo.

    True, its kinda pub guide, but considering most of forum users are pub players, its quite fine to have such as well.

    Well, you know, players from ss/edl don't need guides for some heroes, on the other side pubbers do, and thats what this guides are for : )

    Guides are neccesary for every DotA playe. They are usefull, becouse they may forgot something and can be checked at guides. Anyway if someone tells that i dont need guides; speak with him to give you a guide to see if he needs or not...

    ~Regards !

    its not easy to become a philosopher, so don't even try to.

    Most of the players here don't even know how works a potm-es, or a potm-tide line, yes you will lose it hard if es goes to hit creeps and gets stunned killed.
