3
Lyra Not really a threat, but any Lyra might be a better one than you are.
4
Fortress Fortress is irrelevant this patch, but he can be an annoying roamer to deal with. He's not much of a threat, yet.
5
Ardan Your Blight Bulwark can easily shut his abilities down. Beware of his ult, though. It is super annoying to deal with.
5
Krul Krul is like Rona, but with his own weaknesses and strengths. If he isn't able to initiate, then he can't do much.
5
Phinn All his abilities are able to get your allies closer to the enemy, and that can be very dangerous. Stay alert for his ult and use Crucible.
5
Reim If you have a melee jungler or carry, there's not much you can do other than heal them. I'd usually recommend focusing the enemy carry first then him because of how immobile he is.
6
Celeste Celeste is not much of a threat until level 8. She will especially do a crap ton of damage to you if you get caught out. Position yourself carefully and be sure to use your Crucible against her Solar Storm.
6
Baron Wp Baron's AA can deal significant damage. Cp Baron isn't as played as much, but his abilities do hit hard. His range is super high if he maxes out his ult, so make sure you use Bulwark to stop him from jumping.
6
Flicker I cannot stress how important it is to place scout traps. Flicker is very much a threat due to how potent he is with getting his teammate kills. Ward...ward...ward.
6
Idris His poke can deal a lot. You can mostly shut him down with Bulwark though, so if he gets low, he won't be able to teleport to an enemy or ally.
6
Joule Both Cp and Wp are dangerous. Be careful of her ult when she builds Cp and be careful of her Wp path. Try to use your heal carefully on your allies when they're low because of her sniper beam. Also, activate your B so she doesn't jump on everyone.
6
Lance His Impale does a significant amount of damage if he's build some weapon power. You're Bulwark can stop his A lunge, but he's still able to reach you from inside. Just like Flicker, he is potent in getting his allies kills, so speed boost your allies out of a fight if things get out of hand.
6
SAW His A ignores your B. Both Cp and Wp are deadly with these builds because of his consistent damage.
7
Adagio Seeing an Adagio is pretty rare. Roam Adagio isn't a threat, but Cp is. CRUCIBLE IS SUPER ESSENTIAL AGAINST HIS ULT.
7
Ozo His healing and damage are super annoying. Use your B so he isn't able to use his abilities/sustain his health back.
7
Rona Rona can be a hazard if she's able to initiate with either her A or B. Without them, she won't be able to get close to your allies. Use your B when fighting against her and your A to GTFO when she ults.
8
Glaive Glaive can chunk your health pretty quickly if he focuses on you. Use your B ability to make sure he doesn't get into the backline.
8
Gwen Bursty shots and stuns are bad.
8
Kestrel You aren't able to body block her Glimmershots or One Shot One Kill, so be sure to heal your teammates when they get low. Wp isn't played as much than Cp, so buy Contraception and ward as much as you can.
8
Skaarf Skarrf is most definitely a Lyra counter. His A will decrease the healing time for your A. His B is an AOE that can deal a ton of damage to your team. Etc. Etc. GTFO when he ults.
8
Vox Wp is more meta this patch, but his Cp path is annoying to deal with also. He's deadly even when you use your B because of his bounce damage. Be sure to target him first as he can deal more damage than you can heal your teammates.
9
Taka Taka can pose a threat, and burst you and your teammates down. It is crucial that you guard your teammates with your B and use flares once he reaches level 6.
9
Ringo Ringo's attack speed can be a pain for Lyra and her teammates if you are using these builds. He can easily dish out a ton of damage late game, and delete you if you are not cautious. Be sure to keep a steady eye, and heal your teammates when they get low.
9
Alpha You'll be able to shutdown a Wp Alpha more, but Cp is much more devastating. Get your carry out of a teamfight if she's targeting them because she can obliterate. Imperial Sigil and Bright Bulwark are your friends.
9
Blackfeather Late game Wp Blackfeather is deadly. Cp can be a threat as his poke damages your team like hell.
9
Koshka She's very dangerous early game. I'd recommend using the 'For Super Fast Enemies' build because her speed and damage are super high.
9
Samuel Lots of map control and high damage. This is a general statement, but one well-placed ult can determine whether you win or lose a fight. USE CRUCIBLE FOR HIS ULT.
10
Catherine Catherine's stun is not affected by Lyra's Bulwark, so she'll still be able to build up her perk. Not only that, her silence is devastating for you and your teammates, so be sure to back off if you missed your Crucible.
10
Petal Petal is SUPER OP this patch. Just try to heal your team when they're getting attacked by her. She will demolish your team.
10
Skye Both Cp and Wp are huge threats to you especially late game. While you may be able to counter her Suri Strike, her A can still chunk you down. Be sure she doesn't target you, and help your teammates kill her.

Introduction Top

Tired of your teammates dying ALL the time? Tired of feeders and players who can't do ****? Well have no fear, Lyra's here. In this guide, we'll be going through numerous builds that'll vary based on certain situations.

Pros:
    Great healer/can heal multiple allies
    Some map control for mobile heroes/heroes with dashes. Ex. Skye, Taka, Rona, Alpha, Vox, etc.
    Vision and Speed Boost from Bulwark- cannot reveal stealthed enemies unless they are damaged by it
    Decent poke early game
    Ranged support


Cons:
    Teleport- terrible mainly because of teammate synchronization. I can just recall the time I accidently teleported my teammate back to the enemy because I was trying to escape. We lost the match because of my noob skills.
    Squishy- low def. stats for you beginners out there
    Can run out of energy very quickly/auto attacks take energy away
    Slow objective clear

Hero Kit and Stats Top

Principle Arcanum
Slot: Heroic Perk

Lyra's attacks are arcane missiles that deal crystal damage. if she holds her ground after releasing an attack, she automatically follows up with a heavy attack.
  • Each channeled missile consumes 15-20 (level 1-12) energy, but Lyra can continue using these even if she runs out of energy.
  • Light attack damage: 60-95 (level 1-12) (+40% crystal power) (+100% weapon power)
  • Heavy attack damage: 70-180 (level 1-12) (+120% crystal power) (+100% weapon power)
  • Heavy attack slow: 0% (+0.05% of bonus max health)


Role: Captain
Difficulty: Medium
Stats: 1 - 12
Health: 695 - 1366
Energy: 270 - 765
Weapon: 10
Atk Speed: 100% - 136%
Armor: 25 - 65
Shield: 25 - 65
Range: 6.6
Move Speed: 3.3

Imperial Sigil
Slot: A

Lyra creates a sigil that heals nearby allied heroes and damages nearby enemy heroes. Reactivate this ability to detonate the sigil, dealing heavy damage to enemies while providing a move speed boost to allies inside and immediately consuming the remaining duration to heal at 30% effectiveness.
  • The healing per second is increase by 13% of Lyra's bonus health.
  • The sigil depletes faster the more heroes it is healing/damaging.
  • The sigil has vision, so it can see enemies.
  • The Detonation deals 50% less damage to minions.

Error: The healing per second is increased by 12% of Lyra's bonus health.

When using your Sigil:
    When laning with your carry, do these: heal them when they're low-mid health, make sure to provide vision if you're out of flares, and poke the enemy carry every now and then.

    Don't use your Sigil as a main vision tool. Doing this wastes your heal for some time, and it doesn't reveal stealthed enemies. Just use a contraception.

    Your heal goes out fast the more allies/enemies are on it.

Bright Bulwark
Slot: B

Lyra creates a walled zone around her, damaging and applying a slow to surrounding enemies.
  • Enemies inside the zone are slowed.
  • Enemies attempting to dash through the wall are stopped.
  • Enemies who cross the wall take the same damage and slow again.


When using your Bulwark:
    Activate portal first then Bulwark if you're trying to catch a single enemy or if it's a 3v2. Usually, you'd die quickly if you went in, so only go in when your team is clearly winning a fight.

    Bulwark to stop dashes/to protect your team.

    Bulwark to slow down enemies. (note: this slow isn't as strong as before, so heroes like Taka or Skye will have no problem reaching you)

Arcane Passage
Slot: C

Lyra teleports to the target location, creating portals at both ends that allow anyone to teleport across.
  • Portals last for 8.5s.
  • After travelling through a portal, heroes must wait 4.5s before re-entering one.
  • Enemies inside of Lyra's Bright Bulwark cannot enter a portal.
  • Heroes standing directly on top of a portal as it forms must step off the portal then re-enter to use it.


When using your teleport:
    Typically, you want to be in front of your ally so you can teleport them correctly.
ONLY USE AS A LAST RESORT

1. Gapcloser

2. To escape

When to Use What Builds Top

Ref. above for all builds.

Full build:
Use this build if you're prioritizing healing and zone control. This build is good if the enemy team has a lot of gapclosers or if your allies die easily.

Poke/Damage Build:
Use this build if you're more of an aggressive roamer. If you prioritize chunking down your enemy's health, then this build is for you. You can take out Clockwork or Stormcrown if you need a Crucible. Note: Do not take your teammates kills. You're a roamer, not a carry/jungler. Only do so if it is necessary.

For Quick Enemies:
This should be self-explanatory. If the enemy team has someone like Skye or Koshka, then this build should do. Shiversteel is an underrated item, but it really does help. Don't exchange this for Frostburn because you want your heals to heal more.
