Intro

Hi everyone, weclome to my guide for zyra :)

It's my first guide, so i'll ask you to be indulgent concerning forms.

And, keep in mind this guide is just a general walkthrough to survive in jungle with zyra allowing you to perform good ganks, and some points, as skill build order and item acquisition order can be fickle.

Runes

I use the same runes i use for an ap mid.

Mana regen seals can be discussed, considering armor seals which give you more sustain, but i prefer to have it to not fall out of mana when you don't have blue.

Skill order and jungling

As zyra, you obviously start at blue!

Your first skill is deadly bloom. A simple mid ull is enough with my runes and masteries, but some hits on the golem is good aswell.

Then you pick Rampant growth at level 2, and go on wolves. Set the seed and make bloom a thorn spitter plant.

Continue to wraithes - > golems, lvl 3 and 1 point in deadly bloom -> red buff, lvl 4 and 1 point in Graspings roots in order to do your first gank.

The problem here is that you have to wait a bit between golems and red buff, because you might need 2 seeds to do it properly. It can be done without but it's better. So, i asked myself if getting a point in Rampant growth or in graspings roots to up damage output at level 3 can be good... I'll try asap ;)

Then you keep maximizing Q, i prefer upping Z to have global cd reduction and seeds often up than E, which is mostly a crowd control to my mind.

Note : if you are ganked by the ennemy team, and if they succeed in getting the blue, you should ask your team to go get their blue.
If not, you can start with wraithes, and leech some xp on lanes to get your lvl 2 faster, so you can continue your jungling.

Items

Nothing exceptionnal here, you just absolutely need spell vamp, sell the armor when you feel it's no more useful.
Same here item acquisition order can change depending on the game you're playing.

Pro / Cons

- You are a real Gardener!
- good ganks with her E.
- Great burst.
- Powerful Ult.
- Can scout jungle with her seeds.
- Passive OP!

- Until spell vamp item, needs pots to sustain jungle.
- Early Ganks hard to master if you failed your E, champ on lane should have 1 more control.

Conclusion

I'm glad you read me, and i hope you enjoy this guide for a unusual jungler :)
