Threats & Synergies
This is one of the exceptions, this support has more range than Zyra, but, you'll have to max your Q, she's so squishy, so dealing burst damage is the best way of killing her.
She's a lot of engage, and his W gives her a lot of Magic Resist, so if she engages you, you'll deal her no damage. You'll have to Max your W for Damaging her on time and try to bait her E.
Ok, right here we have a problem. He hasn't got more range than you, but you'll have to max your W for Damaging him on Time, he has a really good engage and disengage, so you're not going to be able to burst him. He's going to dodge almost each one of your skills so, try to engage him when he's without his W.
The best combo with Zyra support is Lucian, he has a lot of damage, and range too, you, as Zyra, have a lot of range too, this combo is very strong, and at lvl 6 your botlane should be almost free.
Almost an ideal synergy. Your fast combo (E + W + Q) and his W will root the enemy for a while. Then your R + his R. All perfect.
Vayne has a lot of damage, her E stuns and your E roots. Your R CC's and her W deals like 500 dmg. I think I don't have to explain nothing more.
Champion Build Guide
You should poke by using Q + W + W + aa
Zyra has a good amount of Mana Regen, so you can poke a lot without going base.
Your combo should be E + W + W + Q in Early game, you root somebody, and make that entire combo.
When you reach lvl 6, just play the combo that has been mentioned before, E + W + Q + W + R.
Then, your best combo is easy, E + W + Q + W + R for having 1 plant of each type.
Later on, you have some ways for playing this combo.
- If your Q is used close to your seeds (W or Passive) the seeds will transform into ranged plants, that hit enemies (DPS)
- If your E is used close to your seeds (W or Passive) the seeds will transform into melee plants, that slow enemies on hit (CC)
So you'll have to play your combo thinking about what your plants can do, that will carry almost every fight until Lane Phase ends.
Then, Zyra has an agressive playstyle on Teamfights, try to hit R with slowing plants to at least 2 people inside. Your team will deal the most important part of the damage, your job is trying to keep enemies inside the teamfight with your R the most time as possible, as your R will deal almost 700 DMG + your plants + Electrocute, you will win the teamfight almost always.
You can start your Burst Combo with E + Q + W + W + R
This will make your seeds to go on Ranged plants, this type of combo is used for DPS.
You can play Zyra on Roam, if you want to, just max Q and roam mid as much as you can. For doing it, try to do a good engage without R at botlane, helping your ADC to get the kill, and then go to mid with your full combo for giving some kills to your mid laner.
