    It depends on what your team needs. If your team is heavily attack speed based, getting an early zeke's herald should help them get back into the game. If you're ridiculously far behind, a shurelyia's reverie should be good, because you can disengage, or chase down solo kills with it. Otherwise, just get an Aegis of the Legion and possibly an Oracle's Elixir.

    That worth a try, I never bought Aegis of the Legion as Zyra before, well thinking it not fit my way to build it, but at losing condition I might try, even might try Zeke's Herald if it helps the farmed AD we have ..
    But remember that playing zyra support means die first or second at most cases, or may be even initiate the fight yourself if you have no real tank, if Zyra die first she can do very massive AOE true damage in team fights with her passive , plus her plants who continue attack and slow enemies after death anyway, have any thought on this case?

    I'd say Aegis because it boosts offense and defense...

    Okay, now I just feel stupid. Shurelya's Battlesong.

    Shurelia's Reverie*

    If you have a team-fight based team, and your team is behind, make sure you get an Aegis of the Legion as quickly as possible. Decide between the jungler, sometimes the top lane, and yourself, who's going to rush this. A lot of carry junglers won't build it, but Junglers like Amumu, Maokai, and Nunu often will, so keep that in mind as well. If they have that covered, or your comp is more based around catching targets, or split pushing, get a Shurelya's Battlesong. If your team is behind, but your carry is farmed, and it's an attack speed based hyper-carry like Vayne or Kog, you could consider a Zeke's Herald. As far as I've seen so far, this will probably still be the case in season 3, though there are a couple other good options to keep your eye on, such as Kage's Last Breath, which applies a slow aura to an ally, Banner of Command, the new promote, and probably the ultimate split-push item, Mikael's Crucible (in my opinion, the best of the new support items), which is effectively a target heal and QSS on a 3 minute cooldown, and of course, Wraith Collar, which allows you to scout nearby hidden targets.

    I don't think they're in the database yet.

    could u link these items for easy reference?

    i'd say shurelya's because it allows for a large potential to engage on enemies when they're outpositioned
    zeke's and aegis are standard.

    generally cheaper and easily obtainable items are better so i vouch for shurely

    er and yeah

    buy wards.

    In my opinion best buy would be Mejai's Soulstealer. You will either swing your team back into game by trading few kills to both teams couple of times without dying or you will fall of faster. As an item it has one of the best gold value compared to what you can get out of it. Still in the end it is GAMBLE. Are you willing to take the risk?

    Alternative is to get something that your team benefits in teamfight such as Aegis of the Legion, which already somebody suggested. Basically any item that provides some sort of AURA is good for teamfight. Buffing your own team or DEbuffing enemy team.

    All depends on your team's composition. If you have a AS attack damage carry, go with Zeke's. Shurelya's is for those without a nice gap closer or escape (like Kog'Maw) if you are behind. Aegis is for balanced offense/defense, which complements any AD carry all around well.

    if you have a competent adc who you feel can carry you later in the game, keep your gp10 and buy tons of wards, make sure the map is always warded whenever you can, don't get caught by their team if they kill your wards, but vision will help your team more then anything else, auras and stuff are nice but knowing what their team is going to do allows you to win a teamfight 90% of the time if you have a competent team yourself.
    Friendly Pony (1) | November 19, 2012 5:20am
    buy items that benefit the rest of your team more, like aegis, shureyla's, frozen heart, and hope that the enemy team makes lots of mistakes cause if you don't have anyone at all to carry you...probably gg.Β 
    elnawawi | November 18, 2012 6:02pm
    And if we have no shiny guy who can carry the whole team ?
    Berzerk (155) | November 18, 2012 1:23pm
    Items that build off your GPs and aura items mostly. Remember to WARD ALOT. Even if they have an oracles the brief amount of sight you'll get is to important and you don't want an ally to get caught out and let the enemies snowball their advantage.
    elnawawi | November 18, 2012 6:01pm
    Wards is my Game , Specially with my so many seeds as playing "Zyra" , problem is team fall back so fast and enemy getting so much farmed and we have to suur or accept early defeat sometimes, people can't survive easily when enemy get farmed
    Yukimaru (56) | November 18, 2012 9:22am
    Buy a new AD-Carry

    i have a better idea: Mejai's Soulstealer :DDD
    PsiGuard (1495) | November 19, 2012 12:22pm
    Probably because Yuki effectively contributed nothing (except humor) while you gave misinformation.
    Embracing (353) | November 19, 2012 6:18am

    Hogopogo (157) | November 19, 2012 6:04am

    xIchi (65) | November 19, 2012 5:19am
