[8.23] ZYRA MID LANE AND SUPPORT | KALIBERDESIGNS

By Frosty Bonhomme
About Me
Hello! I am Frosty, but you can also call me Kaliber! I am a graphic designer but I also have a love for games. Currently, my favourite is League of Legends! I came from a MOBA that was called Paragon but unfortunately, Epic Games shut down the servers. I was a platinum player in Paragon and mained mid lane. This is my first guide, so I am still learning and would love all feedback I can get! I love mid and top, and I love exploring champions. I recently explored Zyra and think that I have created a good mid and support build for season 8!
About Zyra
Abilities






Zyra - The Rise of Thorns
Ranged, Caster, AoE Damage, Hard CC, Support, Powerful

Speciality: Supportive Mage

Why choose Zyra? Zyra is a supportive mage who can play mid lane but can also support. She is very strong and he Stranglethorns does a ton of damage combined with her Grasping Roots.
Pros / Cons
Pros

+ Fairly easy to play
+ Good as a support or mid laner
+ Root that can hit multiple targets
+ Multiple seeds deal a lot of damage
+ Low skill cooldowns
+ Easy to kite enemies
Zyra is a great pick in solo queue. She deals a lot of damage with her Grasping Roots into her ultimate Stranglethorns with some Rampant Growth seeds around the enemy.

Cons

- Her passive is like her W
- Susceptible to CC
- Falls off late game
- You can't choose where your Garden of Thorns go, making it sometimes useless
- Seeds need to be in range of an ability to be useful
- Seeds can be walked over by an enemy and they're gone
As per all champions, Zyra has her strengths, and her weaknesses. Zyra's passive, Garden of Thorns and Rampant Growth are very similar and they are a large portion of her kit, yet they're easily countered. A couple hits and they're done or before they're even activated, walking over the seed.
Runes

Keystone


Manaflow
Band
  • Manaflow Band: The extra mana won't help much but the "extra" mana will help a ton.


Transcendence
  • Transcendence: Cooldown Reduction is essential on Zyra. We are building around the Transcendence rune and this will grant us bonus AP since we easily pass the 40% cap.
Summoner Spells

SUMMONER SPELLS
-
FLASH: Flash is a must on almost all champions, if you don't have Flash then you will be an easy kill no matter what champion you are.
BARRIER: I pick Barrier on Zyra for that little extra shield when you're weak. The reason I pick this over ignite is because most of your encounters SHOULD be out of the ignite range.
EXHAUST: Exhaust should only be used when playing support as it offers a powerful movement speed slow that can save a teammate or win a fight.

I always max Deadly Spines first but put a point into Grasping Roots at level 1 just in case you get ganked at level 1 or pushed out. This can be switched out but I prefer it. It is also an easy way to freeze minions for a little bit.
