Mirana, the Princess of the Moon, is a ranged agility hero that uses her abilities to surprise, chase, and assault enemies. She is an excellent huntress and widely known for her Sacred Arrow which stuns her victim with deadly precision. The arrow stuns longer when it's fired from a farther distance. Mirana can bring down the stars with Starstorm to damage nearby enemies and an additional star to cast down on her one unfortunate target. Mounting with her trusted tiger Sagan, Mirana can Leap forward over a distance, to escape or chase, and enhance her with a roar, increasing her attack and movement speed. Invoking the power of her moon goddess, Mirana uses her ultimate, Moonlight Shadow to cloak all allied heroes and herself with invisibility. At any time, Mirana and her allies can break out of their hiding with an ambush and fade into the shadows again during the duration of the spell. With an array of mighty and supportive abilities, Mirana is a versatile heroine that can excel early in the game as a mobile ganker. She is not very heavily reliant on luxury items but she can benefit from almost any item that gives her presence in the battlefield.

Bio[]

Mirana minimap icon.pngMirana, the Princess of the Moon
▶️ "How long must we ride before we're summoned again to the Nightsilver Woods?"
Born to a royal family, a blood princess next in line for the Solar Throne, Mirana willingly surrendered any claim to mundane land or titles when she dedicated herself completely to the service of Selemene, Goddess of the Moon. Known ever since as Princess of the Moon, Mirana prowls the sacred Nightsilver Woods searching for any who would dare poach the sacred luminous lotus from the silvery pools of the Goddess's preserve. Riding on her enormous feline familiar, she is poised, proud and fearless, attuned to the phases of the moon and the wheeling of the greater constellations. Her bow, tipped with sharp shards of lunar ore, draws on the moon's power to charge its arrows of light.

Notes:

  • Meteors need 0.57 seconds to hit their targets.
  • The initial wave does not hit units inside the Fog of War, but the secondary single meteor does.
  • The target for the second meteor is set upon cast of Starstorm, so it can hit its target even after it has moved out of the radius.
  • The second meteor starts falling exactly 0.8 seconds after cast, and also takes 0.57 seconds to hit its target.
  • Starstorm chooses a new target for the second meteor if the set target dies before or because of the first meteor's impact.

Modifiers
Buff modifier_projectile_vision: Undispellable. Persists death.
Debuff modifier_stunned: Dispellable with strong dispels.
Lunar energies make the Princess of the Moon's arrows more deadly than most.

Notes:

  • The Sacred Arrow travels at a speed of 900.
  • The arrow starts traveling 51 range in front of Mirana, and travels forward up to 3067 range.
    • This means units within 50 range in front of Mirana cannot be hit, as it does not search for units right behind the arrow.
  • With the travel distance and radius, Sacred Arrow can hit units up to 3163 range away.
  • The stun increases by 0.07/0.08/0.09/0.1 seconds and the damage by 0.003125 for each 30 distance traveled, resulting in the following values at certain distances (before reductions):
    • 300 Distance: 0.7/0.8/0.9/1 second stun, 96/186/276/366 damage.
    • 600 Distance: 1.4/1.6/1.8/2 second stun, 132/222/312/402 damage.
    • 900 Distance: 2.1/2.4/2.7/3 second stun, 168/258/348/438 damage.
    • 1200 Distance: 2.8/3.2/3.6/4 second stun, 204/294/384/474 damage.
    • 1500 Distance: 3.5/4/4.5/5 second stun, 240/330/420/510 damage.
    • The arrow reaches its full potential after traveling for 1500 distance, which takes 1.67 seconds.
  • The arrow first applies the damage, then the debuff.
  • The stun duration is shown above the target's head upon hit (visible to allies only). The shown value is rounded.
  • If the arrow collides with a unit which is not a hero, ancient creep, or creep-hero, it instantly kills it.
    • The creep is killed by getting its health dealt as damage to it, in the form of HP Removal. Spell immune creeps are not killed.
  • The Sacred Arrow has 500 flying vision, which stays for 3 seconds at the point the arrow hits a target.
  • With Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter, Sacred Arrow releases a meteor based on the current level of Starstorm onto every enemy that comes within 500 range as it travels.
    • If the arrow lands on a unit, that unit is hit by a secondary meteor that deals 37.5/75/112.5/150 damage (before reductions).
    • This results in a total damage of 112.5/225/337.5/450 against that target, on top of Sacred Arrow's damage (before reductions).
  • With the level 25 Talent talent, the extra arrows are launched together with the primary arrow.
    • The extra arrows are launched with a 30° angle to the left and right of the primary arrow in the center.
    • Although all 3 arrows overlap in front of Mirana, they cannot hit the same target.
    • Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter does not upgrade the extra arrows from the Talent talent.

  • The bonus movement and attack speed is applied instantly upon cast, and not upon landing.
  • The buff from multiple casts does not stack, only its duration gets refreshed.
  • With Aghanim's Shard icon.png Aghanim's Shard, Leap has an ensured critical strike, crits with a lower value have no effect if they proc, since the higher crit value takes priority.

Recommended Items[]

Starting items:

  • Slippers of Agility icon.png Slippers of Agility provide Mirana with additional damage and armor, greatly improving her last-hitting power and giving her some additional survivability against enemy harass.
  • Tango icon.png Tango sustains Mirana's HP, preventing the enemy from harassing her out of lane.
  • Healing Salve icon.png Healing Salve also restores health to Mirana.
  • Clarity icon.png Clarity allows Mirana to cast her spells more than once or twice in the laning stage, particularly because of her small base mana pool and the high cost of her nukes, particularly Sacred Arrow.
  • Observer Ward icon.png Observer Ward gains vision on enemies, allowing her to use Sacred Arrow more effectively.
  • Sentry Ward icon.png Sentry Ward helps destroy enemy vision, preventing them from spotting Mirana's approach and dodge her arrows.

Early game:

  • Magic Stick icon.png Magic Stick is very useful to purchase early on Mirana, as her small HP and mana pools mean that she benefits greatly from the burst regen.
  • Boots of Speed icon.png Boots of Speed allow Mirana to go on the offensive, using her respectable base movement speed and ranged attacks to attack and harass enemies. It also allows for more easy positioning for casting Sacred Arrow, and chasing down or fleeing with Leap.
  • Bottle (Full) icon.png Bottle sustains mana and health, as well as giving Mirana ability to store runes to use at the right opportunities.

Mid game:

  • Magic Wand icon.png Magic Wand is a cheap upgrade to Magic Stick, providing extra attributes and increased charge storage. Because Mirana's HP and mana pools remain quite low without additional items, an instant restoration to HP and mana is greatly beneficial to her.
  • Power Treads icon.png Power Treads provide Mirana with additional bonuses to attack speed and attributes. With good attribute switching, Mirana can increase her strength for increased survivability, agility for more damage output, or intelligence for casting her spells.
  • Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter is very powerful on Mirana, as it gives her immense burst magical damage on either single targets or groups of enemies, giving her bonus teamfight/ganking presence during the early-mid part of the game. Scepter also gives her decent stats across the board and opens up new items possibilities, allowing Mirana to be played as a powerful nuker instead of a right-click hero.
  • Blink Dagger icon.png Blink Dagger lets Mirana position right on top of an enemy to rain down upgraded Starstorm.

Late game:

  • Butterfly icon.png Butterfly is a very strong carry item in Mirana's hands. It provides a large boost to her agility, and increases her damage and attack speed to greatly improve the potency of her physical attacks. The bonus evasion increases her survivability, and the active can be used to improve her mobility in emergencies.
  • Linken's Sphere icon.png Linken's Sphere gives Mirana all-around stats as well as boosting her HP and mana regen. Spellblock further improves Mirana's survivability, allowing her to ignore an enemy's initiating targeted disable, which can give her the time she needs to escape with Leap if ganked.
  • Black King Bar icon.png Black King Bar can be crucial to purchase depending on what enemies Mirana is facing. Not only does the item provide spell immunity, but it is also capable of dispelling certain debuffs that Manta Style cannot, allowing Mirana to stand her ground and fight.

Situational items:

  • Diffusal Blade 1 icon.png Diffusal Blade improves Mirana's physical attacks, providing a boost to agility as well as allowing her attacks to burn mana. The active can greatly slow enemies, making them easy targets for Sacred Arrow.
  • Desolator icon.png Desolator is a strong mid-game item that gives Mirana more damage output. Because she can stun enemies for long durations with Sacred Arrow and boost allied attack speed with Leap, the armor reduction on enemy targets makes them easy prey for Mirana and her allies.
  • Monkey King Bar icon.png Monkey King Bar is a situational purchase that aids Mirana in fighting enemies that have evasion. It improves Mirana's damage output through increased attack damage and Piere procs.
  • Daedalus icon.png Daedalus improves her attack damage and giving her the chance to inflict critical strikes, Mirana can take advantage of her high attack speed and lay waste to foes.
  • Assault Cuirass icon.png Assault Cuirass greatly improves Mirana's fighting power and gives her yet another way to buff her team's effectiveness. The greatly increased armor makes Mirana much more survivable against physical damage, while the bonus attack speed allows her to utilize her physical attacks to great effect. The aura can be used alongside Leap to greatly increase teammates' combat effectiveness by providing them with movement speed, armor and attack speed, along with reducing nearby enemies' armor to further increase the potency of allies' physical attacks.
  • Eye of Skadi icon.png Eye of Skadi is a very strong item to purchase on Mirana. It improves her stats across the board, mitigating her small health and mana pools while also providing bonus agility for increased physical damage output. The Cold Attack passive allows Mirana to slow her targets, which can be used alongside Leap to create a large movement and attack speed disparity between Mirana's team and her foes.
  • Mjollnir icon.png Mjollnir is a strong attack modifier item to purchase on Mirana. It greatly empowers her attack speed and gives her the ability to deal area magical damage, synergizing with Leap and Starstorm. The active can be placed on your team's lead initiator, allowing them to deal additional area magical damage during teamfights.
  • Ethereal Blade icon.png Ethereal Blade should be considered if Aghanim's Scepter icon.png Aghanim's Scepter was purchased, since combined they deal huge amounts of magical damage - the combined burst damage can leave a hero with very little health or even kill them if their hp is on the lower part of the scale. The additional agility is also very useful, as it increases Mirana's right-click power as well as her resistance to physical attacks. The active will also help allied wizards at dealing damage to the affected enemy, further securing a kill for your team, and can be combined with Dagon 1 icon.png Dagon to deal even more magic burst.
  • Manta Style icon.png Manta Style gives Mirana a large amount of bonus agility and attack speed, as well as increased strength and intelligence for overall increased resilience. The active can be used to remove debuffs from Mirana, allowing her to use escape abilities, create illusions to deal more damage when on the offensive, or can be used to scout out terrain to reveal enemy positioning.
  • Urn of Shadows icon.png Urn of Shadows is a strong utility item to purchase early on as Mirana. The extra strength gives her more HP for increased survivability, and the mana regen helps to sustain her casting requirements as needed. Charges can be easily obtained through participating in ganks, and the charges used to heal teammates or to add further damage in future ganks.
  • Solar Crest icon.png Solar Crest provides armor, mana regen, and attributes for improved survivability. Using the active on a Sacred Arrow victim makes them vulnerable to physical damage.
  • Arcane Boots icon.png Arcane Boots is important to purchase as early as possible as a support Mirana. The ability to replenish her mana pool allows her to cast Sacred Arrow and her other spells more frequently, and helps to keep allies' mana topped up as well.
  • Ghost Scepter icon.png Ghost Scepter is useful to obtain if the enemy chooses to focus Mirana in fights. Because a support Mirana is not able to easily farm items to improve her own survivability, Ghost Scepter allows her to become temporarily invulnerable against physical damage.
  • Force Staff icon.png Force Staff is a strong utility item to purchase as a support Mirana. It provides bonus intelligence to shore up her small base mana pool, and health regeneration to help keep her health pool topped up. The active can be used alongside Leap to greatly augment Mirana's mobility.
  • Eul's Scepter of Divinity icon.png Eul's Scepter of Divinity is a very strong caster item that greatly improves Mirana's potency as a support. It provides bonus intelligence and mana regen, greatly improving her ability to cast her spells, and additional movement speed to give her more mobility, especially when combined with Leap. The active can be cast on herself to provide temporary invulnerability while removing debuffs from herself, or can be used on an enemy to make them a sitting duck for Sacred Arrow.
  • Rod of Atos icon.png Rod of Atos greatly improves Mirana's overall resilience and is easy to build. It provides a large amount of HP and intelligence, improving Mirana's survivability and giving her a larger mana pool with which to cast spells. The active, with its long range and low cooldown, can root an enemy to hit them with Sacred Arrow, allowing allies to easily chase down fleeing enemies.
  • Drum of Endurance icon.png Drum of Endurance gives Mirana attributes across the board and is easy to build. The strength and intelligence shore up her small HP and mana pools; the active allows Mirana to greatly empower all nearby allies' attack and movement speed during teamfights.

Trivia[]

  • In the transition from DotA to Dota 2, various aspects of Mirana's character have been changed to avoid reference to Blizzard's intellectual property.[1]
    • The names of two of Mirana's abilities were changed; Starstorm was previously called Starfall and Sacred Arrow was called Elune's Arrow.
    • Her DotA hero title was "Priestess of the Moon", a class within the Warcraft universe. Her title was changed during the beta to her current, Princess of the Moon. However, her voice lines remained unchanged, referring to herself still as the ▶️▶️ Priestess.
  • In addition to the above changes, Mirana's surname - "Nightshade" - was also dropped, so that she is known simply as "Mirana".
  • Mirana is the tiger of the Multan Fort that killed the king of Mongols (in the Mongol folklore).[2]
  • Her mount's name is Sagan. Her response ▶️ "Carl meet Sagan." is a pun on Carl Sagan.
  • She appears to be wearing the Circlet item, which fits the item description as being "designed for human princesses".
  • In Dragon's Blood. Mirana's Starfall ability is shown when she fires an enchanted arrow to the sky and rains several arrows as she wounded an elf.
