Legion Commander Guide

Legion Commander is a hero who can create a situation for the enemy kerry by constantly killing him in duels, and each successful duel grants Tresdin permanent bonus damage. And in lategame having a lot of damage thanks to ultimates is able to quickly break buildings and heroes, especially backlinks and support.  But let's go over everything in order.

Tresdin is a melee hero, suited to the role of a medium, whose main attribute is strength and whose damage potential is theoretically unlimited. Often acts as an off-lane initiator in the early game and becomes a self-sufficient combat unit in the middle and late game.

Cons of the hero

In the early stages of the game, it does not pose a threat alone due to insufficient damage. The lack of control skills makes the Legion Commander highly dependent on items and an ultimate, during the recharge of which Tresdin can do little to her opponent. Low agility gain creates certain problems with armor and attack speed.

  • Low dexterity boost
  • Depends on items
  • Highly dependent on the start of the game
  • Requires fast items for initiation
  • No disables besides ultimates

Hero Pros

Legion Commander, thanks to its high base movement speed and two health regenerating abilities, can defend almost any lane equally well. Has a long disable, during the duration of which, with the help of allies, it is able to kill the vast majority of heroes throughout the game. Press The Attack ability allows you to dispel negative effects from allies, thereby saving them from enemy control.

  • Great strength gain
  • High movement speed
  • Good against illusions
  • Excellent attack animation
  • Strong liner

Skillbuild

At first level of Tresdin, it is recommended to study the Overwhelming Odds ability, which will allow you to finish off the enemy ranged creep, as well as effectively knock out enemy resources. Further, the main emphasis should be on the only passive skill - Moment of Courage, thanks to the vampirism of which the Legionnaire is able to withstand any pressure on the lane and farm the forest without health drawdowns. By the seventh level, the skill build looks like this: 1-1-4-1.

 

Itembuild

In the starting purchase of the Comander there should be a sufficient number of consumables for health regeneration, which will help to survive until the leveling of abilities without much difficulty.

The first  buildable artifact in Commanders arsenal after Boots should be a Blademail, perfectly matched with an ultimate, forces the enemy to attack her. Further, a Dagger and a BKB are necessary for a successful initiation and mid game, this item combination will kill the enemy hero in a sudden attack and remain unharmed afterwards.

After that, with a sufficient amount of damage from the ultimate, you should purchase Aghanim, which increases the duration of Duel and gives immunity to magic and damage to all characters who are not under the influence of Tresdin's ultimate. To increase your combat effectiveness in a duel, you should consider purchasing a Desolator or Assault Cuirass.

 

Talents

Of the entire talent tree, alternatives should be considered only at 15th and 25th levels. Against a large number of summoned units or heroes of illusionists, as a talent of 15th level, you should choose the reduction of the cooldown of the first ability, which deals damage, depending on the number and type of units affected by it. As an alternative to the additional damage for the ultimate, the final branch offers the ability to apply Press The Attack in a small radius, which can often both speed up the process of destruction of enemy buildings and make it possible to dispel negative effects from several allies.

Good against

Legion Commander specializes in solo attacks and quick kills on heroes with a lot of damage turning against themselves. These heroes include Anti-Mage, Clinkz, Ark Varden and Naga Siren. In addition, the Legion works well against heroes with a large number of summoned creatures - Chen, Broodmother and Furion.

Counterpicks

The counter-pick for the Legion is considered to be heroes who can save allies and negate all the physical damage that it inflicts during the action of its ultimate: Wyvern, Shadow Demon, Oracle, Devourer and Tusk. Also, despite the special predisposition to one-on-one fights, there are heroes who can kill the Legion during the duel, namely Monkey King, Troll and Ursa.

Conclusion

Legion Commander is an excellent hero who thanks to his ultimates can increase his damage from attacks to huge values. Despite the simplicity of mastering the character, to achieve results on it, you need some practice in choosing targets in a fight at certain stages of the game, as well as in the ability to intelligently use Press The Attack to save allies.
