The fiery red-haired beast Lina killed more than one hundred characters in Dota 2. The history of the game says that her abilities were transferred through a dragon’s kiss, so it’s not a coincidence that one of her skills has a scorching effect.

  • Light Strike Array. A column of flames summoned by Lina deals magic damage to enemies and stuns them.
