Lanaya the Templar Assassin is a short-ranged Agility hero capable of dealing huge bursts of Physical damage to swathes of enemies with expert positioning and timing. Unlike most physical damage dealers, Lanaya reaches her damage potential quite early and then scales up from that point with carry items, letting her gank with impunity throughout the mid-game, and her range changes from a melee hero to a ranged hero with short reach as she levels Psi Blades.
Her Psionic Traps provide map control and the ability to chase down fleeing heroes from up to 2000 range, and Refraction and Meld lets you shrug off high-damage nukes and disjoint projectiles. With a Blink Dagger, Lanaya can quickly materialize in the enemy team's weakest flank and shred several heroes at once with her Meld and Psi Blades.

Templar Assassin Lanaya, the Templar Assassin
 "My body is a temple for which I will kill."
Role: Pip carry.png Carry / Pip tank.png Escape
Lanaya, the Templar Assassin, came to her calling by a path of curious inquiry. Possessed of a scientific bent, she spent her early years engaged in meticulous study of nature's laws--peering into grimoires of magic and alchemy, recreating experiments from charred fragments of the Violet Archives, and memorizing observations of the Keen recordkeepers. Already quiet and secretive by nature, the difficulty of acquiring these objects further reinforced her skills of stealth. Had she been less retiring, she might have become notorious among the guilds as a thief-scholar. Instead her investigations led her into far more obscure corners. As she devoted her furtive talents to unlocking the secrets of the universe, she instead unlocked a secret door that exists in nature itself: the entryway to the most Hidden Temple. The intelligences that waited beyond that portal, proved to be expecting her, and whatever mysteries they revealed in the moment of their discovery was nothing compared to the answers they held out to Lanaya should she continue in their service. She swore to protect the mysteries, but more to the point, in service to the Hidden Temple she satisfies her endless craving for understanding. In the eyes of each foe she expunges, a bit more of the mystery is revealed.


Refraction icon.png
Ability Affects Damage
No Target Self Physical
Manipulating her psionic veil, Templar Assassin becomes highly elusive, avoiding damage while gaining a bonus to her damage. These effects are separate, and have a limited number of instances.
Duration: 3/4/5/6 attacks or 17 seconds
Bonus Damage: 20/40/60/80
Cooldown 17 Mana 100
Manipulating her psionic veil, Lanaya bends nature's law to her will.
  • Direct HP Removal does not trigger the damage block.
  • The instance blocking and damage bonus are independent of each other.
  • Only instances of more than 5 damage (after all reductions) will remove a charge.
  • Refraction "bonus damage" icon:
  • While Refraction's damage block is active, Lanaya and her allies will see a visual effect around her (a white "forcefield"). This is not visible to the enemy.
  • Whenever Refraction blocks an instance of damage, a small visual effect will occur. This is visible to both allies and enemies.
  • While Refraction's self-damage bonus is active, Lanaya gains a visual effect (her psi-blades will be longer and glow more). This is visible to both allies and enemies.

Meld icon.png
Ability Affects Damage
No Target Self Physical
Templar Assassin conceals herself, gaining invisibility while remaining still. On the next attacked enemy unit, Lanaya will reduce its armor and deal bonus damage to it.
Invisibility Duration: Indefinite
Bonus Damage: 50/100/150/200
Armor Reduction: 2/4/6/8
Armor Reduction Duration: 10
Cooldown 7 Mana 50
Lanaya is as elusive as her covenant with the Hidden Temple.
  • Doesn't work against towers.
  • Meld is broken by any action, including moving. Thus, to use it as a nuke, you need to immediately attack right after Melding.
  • The bonus damage and armor reduction is only applied if Meld is broken by attacking a unit.
  • The armor debuffs don't stack with each other.
  • The invisibility has a fadetime of 0.001 seconds.
  • Meld places a buff on the Templar Assassin rendering her invisible. It is not channeling spell, and will therefore not be broken by stuns or silence.

Psi Blades
Psi Blades icon.png
Ability Affects Damage
Passive Enemies Pure
Templar Assassin's psi blades slice through the attacked unit, spilling and damaging enemy units directly behind it, while gaining bonus attack range.
Bonus Attack Range: 60/120/180/240
Spilled Damage Area of Effect: 80 width, 615/655/695/735 length
Spill Range: 590/630/670/710
Partially blocked by Magic Immunity. Damage will only be blocked if magic immune unit is not the primary target.
Partially usable by illusions. Illusions can use the bonus attack range, but not the damage spill.
Her blades pierce the skin as much as the mind, furthering her understanding of the mystery that is reality.
  • Spilled damage hits invisible units.
  • Attack effects (like Unique Attack Modifiers) will only will be applied to the primary target.

Recommended items

  • The starting Tangos give Lanaya health regeneration allowing her to stay in the lane, while the Iron Branches give her extra damage and health.
  • Boots of Speed is a vital item for every hero in Dota 2 in order to escape and chase when each is called for.
  • As an aggressive midlaning hero, a Bottle is important for saving runes and sustaining her heath and mana while she roams the map to find kills.
  • A Blink Dagger is essential to reach Lanaya's maximum potential. Although she is technically ranged, her base range (and the range of Meld) is similar to that of a melee hero. A Blink Dagger allows her to jump on top of enemies and immediately Meld+attack. It also lets her quickly get to nearby enemies caught by Psionic Traps and lets her position her Psi Blades in a fight to deal maximum spill damage.
  • Desolator gives Lanaya a lot of damage and an orb effect that decreases the opponent's armor. With it and a level four Meld, you will be deducting 15 armor directly, not counting additional effects like the aura from Assault Cuirass.
  • After the aggressive core items, you will want to focus on some defensive items. BKB will give Lanaya magic immunity, helping her avoid painful stuns and nukes. Assault Cuirass gives her 15 armor, a lot of attack speed, and an aura that helps out allies and stacks even more armor reduction on enemies. A Heart will give her much needed health.
  • The Butterfly is a powerful agility weapon. Its evasion will conserve Refraction charges, and its damage output is terrific.
