Tips on Luna
Luna is a hard carry that focuses on aoe damage in teamfights. Basically farm early game, grab some kills with your spells, and try to finish your core as fast as possible. Luna is a very fragile hero with no eacaping skills and low HP, kinda like last Carry I introduced Troll Warlord. It is very easy to be ganked in early games, so your should be very careful while farming. You can also gank pretty well with Lucent Beam and ulti that deals lots of damage in early games. But keep in mind that Luna is a carry, her main task is farming as fast as possible. Luna is also a nice pusher thanks to Moon Glaive. When you get your Helm of the Dominator you can farm stacked ancients with lvl 2/3 moon glaives. You should be higher level than everyone else because of your ability to farm really fast.
About group fight
Do not go in first!! You are glass cannon. Let your initiators do their job. After that,clear any creeps there are,it should be pretty fast because of your moon glaives. After that,cast your ultimate,pop your manta,and focus the highest threat. It will bounce off,and combined with your ultimate you will deal tons of damage. Enemy team probably will focus you because of your damage potential,so position yourself well.
About core items choice
Power Treads. Some people prefer Phase Boots but I say treads are better. As Luna is a glass cannon, and needs any HP she can get. While someone might discuss that with phase you can run away more easily, and while that is true, you already are fastest in the game. If you get stunned,you can't use phase, and only raw hp helps you then. Also tread switching is useful for that 1 beam to get the kill, or Agi treads while farming. And Power Treads provides better dps than Phase Boots in late games.
Magic Wand. I almost get Magic Wand on every hero. It is a life saver and it won't let you down.
Bottle. If you go mid, it is a nice choice.
Ring of Aquila. It provides good dps and mana recovery in early games. When I play Luna, I prefer Magic Wand, Ring of Aquila and sometimes Drum of Endurance in early games. Drum of Endurance is a bit expensive. When you need BKB very much, Drum of Endurance is not recommended.
Black King Bar. A must on Luna. You are low HP hero,and best way to deal with you kind are chainstuns or nukes. Or both. BKB solves this problem,allows you to bounce your glaives on enemy team without interruptions.
Helm of the Dominator. All orbs work on Luna now, but lifesteal is still best on her. Allows you to jungle, stay longer in lane, and most important,to endure in teamfights.
Butterfly and Manta Style. I always prefer Butterfly and Manta Style as Luna's late game items. Both provide high dps. Also Manta Style is very suitable thanks to Moon Glaive.
