Description

Lore: Longing to take control of her fate, the ancient, dying plant Zyra transferred her consciousness into a human body for a second chance at life. Centuries ago, she and her kind dominated the Kumungu Jungle, using thorns and vines to consume any animal that set foot in their territory. As the years passed, the animal population steadily died off. Food became increasingly scarce, and Zyra could only stand by helplessly as the last of her kin withered away. She thought she would perish alone, until the appearance of an unwary sorceress presented her with an opportunity for salvation.

It was the first time in years Zyra had sensed a creature wander so close. Hunger drew her to the sorceress, but some other, deeper instinct compelled her. She enveloped the woman in thorns with ease, but as she savored this final meal, foreign memories invaded her thoughts. She saw great jungles of metal and stone where humans and animals thrived. Potent magic surged through her vines, and she devised an elegant but risky plan to survive. Using the woman's memories, Zyra poured her newfound magic into the creation of a human-shaped vessel. She didn't know what sort of world awaited her, but she had nothing left to lose. When Zyra opened her eyes, she was overwhelmed by the raw power ready at her fingertips. It wasn't until she noticed the shriveled remains of the plant she once was that she realized how vulnerable she had become. If this body died, there would be no network of vines to retreat through, no roots to regrow her... but she felt truly alive. She beheld the world for the first time as animals did, and a dark smile crept across her lips. She was reborn, and there was so much now within her grasp.

"Closer to the flower, closer to the thorns."

- Zyra, Rise of the Thorns

Patch History

Patch Notes 7.15

  • BUGFIX
    • Wildfire Zyra’s crown no longer stretches during several animations.

Patch Notes 7.12
Heimerdinger & Zyra Pet Targeting

Quote.png Addressing a loophole that allowed Heimerdinger and Zyra to “attack” a target without actually attacking. This let them sidestep some of the intended risks of telling turrets/plants what to attack: standing still long enough to actually fire the attack, and drawing minion aggro as a result. Unquote.png
  • FOLLOW THROUGH: Heimerdinger and Zyra must now actually fire a basic attack to command turrets or plants to focus a target. Issuing an attack command and immediately cancelling it no longer triggers the redirect.

Patch Notes 7.9

Quote.png With Aegis of the Legion's old aura out of the game, squishy champions who were relying on it to give them enough magic resist find themselves a bit on the burstable side. Unquote.png
  • HOORAY: Champions who previously gained no magic resist per level now gain 0.5 per level
  • AFFECTED CHAMPIONS: Ahri, Anivia, Annie, Ashe, Aurelion Sol, Azir, Bard, Brand, Caitlyn, Cassiopeia, Corki, Draven, Elise, Ezreal, Fiddlesticks, Gnar, Graves, Heimerdinger, Janna, Jayce, Jhin, Jinx, Kalista, Karma, Karthus, Kassadin, Kayle, Kennen, Kindred, Kog’Maw, LeBlanc, Lissandra, Lucian, Lulu, Lux, Malzahar, Miss Fortune, Morgana, Nami, Nidalee, Orianna, Quinn, Rakan, Ryze, Sivir, Sona, Soraka, Swain, Syndra, Taliyah, Teemo, Thresh, Tristana, Twisted Fate, Twitch, Urgot, Varus, Vayne, Veigar, Vel’Koz, Viktor, Vladimir, Xayah, Xerath, Yasuo, Ziggs, Zilean, Zyra

Patch Notes 7.5

Quote.png Along with her sweet new skin, Zyra’s sporting a brand new death animation. If you feel compelled to see it for yourself, please avoid doing so in ranked. Unquote.png
  • BUGFIX
    • Fixed a bug on Haunted Zyra where Enrage was barely visible on Q - Thorn Spitters
    • Fixed a bug where no on-ground particles would appear beneath SKT Zyra when using R - Stranglethorns
    • Fixed a bug where Haunted Zyra wasn't able to use the Champion Mastery emote during death

Patch Notes 7.3

Plants don’t auto-target champions on spawn if a closer enemy target exists. Q costs more mana.
Quote.png When Zyra does plant things at you, her abilities are only half the story - she's also sprouting a garden of Thornspitters and Vine Lashers. Once you've dodged (...or not) a spellcast, you've got a choice to make: stick around to take her plants out, or back off until they've despawned. That choice is heavily weighted toward running away, thanks to an aggressive AI pattern that told Zyra’s plants to always target nearby champions on-spawn, regardless of whether Zyra landed the ability that spawned ‘em. While frustrating to deal with for any champ, this makes life downright awful for melee folks who can’t whack Zyra’s weeds without staying in range. Though Zyra's built to thrive against close-range picks like Braum or Leona, her margin for error’s so high that it’s impossible for almost any melee to find an opportunity to cut through. That margin’s what we’re targeting this patch. Zyra will still carry the “anti-melee” crown when she lands her spells, but opponents that bob and weave past Deadly Spines and Grasping Roots will find footing to retaliate. Unquote.png
  • General
    • PLANT STUFF: Removed a rule that told Thornspitters and Vine Lashers to always target nearby enemy champions on-spawn instead of the closest enemy unit, even if the ability that spawned them didn’t hit a champion
  • Deadly Bloom.png Q - Deadly Spines
    • COST: 60 mana ⇒ 70 mana

Patch Notes 7.2

  • BUGFIX:
    • Fixed a bug where Zyra’s seeds from both W - Rampant Growth and Passive - Garden of Thorns weren’t respecting their spawn cap
    • Fixed a bug where Zyra’s dead body could intercept ARAM’s snowball. Whoops.

Patch Notes 6.19

  • BUGFIX: Zyra's plants now properly count as pets, rather than area-of-effect abilities, for the slow effect of Rylai's Crystal Scepter

Patch Notes 6.15

Q damage and AP ratio up.
Quote.png Before the 6.13 tweaks to plant AI, Zyra was getting too much consistent harass from her plants without even having to land spells. Now that she's getting less free plant damage, it’s clear her spells aren’t carrying their weight. As a squishy mage, Zyra should be rewarded for taking risks to play aggressively when her abilities hit. Unquote.png

Deadly Bloom.png Q - Deadly Spines

  • DAMAGE: 60/90/120/150/180 ⇒ 60/95/130/165/200
  • RATIO: 0.55 ability power ⇒ 0.6 ability power

Patch Notes 6.14

  • Bugfix
    • Zyra’s Passive - Garden of Thorns no longer re-activates while Zyra is recalling in brush, giving away her location

Patch Notes 6.13

Fixed plant AI. Increased Passive and W cooldowns.
Quote.png Yet another support champion with an immensely strong laning phase, Zyra has spread like a weed through the bot lane. She should certainly be great at zoning with her plants, but right now they're a little too good at their job, targeting enemy champions before Zyra herself (never show initiative in the workplace). In addition, seeds spawn much too quickly, letting Zyra sow whenever she pleases. We're bringing her plants in line, giving other supports a chance to blossom. Unquote.png
  • Queen of Thorns.png Passive - Garden of Thorns
    • SEED SPAWN TIME: 11 - 6.75 seconds (at levels 1-18) ⇒ 13 - 8.5 seconds (at levels 1-18)
  • Deadly Bloom.png Q - Deadly Spines
    • GMOS: Fixed a bug where plants spawned by Deadly Spines would automatically target enemy champions even if Zyra hadn't damaged them
  • Rampant Growth.png W - Rampant Growth
    • AMMO RECHARGE TIME: 17/16/15/14/13 seconds ⇒ 20/18/16/14/12 seconds

Patch Notes 6.10

Passive-spawned seeds can be stepped on faster.
Quote.png Zyra’s Midseason is off to a good start, comfortably blooming into a botanical powerhouse. We’re not looking to do anything dramatic - just adjusting Garden of Thorns to be less punishing for those on the wrong side of the grass. Unquote.png

Queen of Thorns.png Passive - Garden of Thorns

  • SEED GRACE PERIOD: Can be stepped on 1.5 seconds after spawning ⇒ 1 second after spawning (W - Rampant Growth seeds remain at 1.5 seconds of immunity)

Patch Notes 6.9

Quote.png Zyra’s function as a zone-controlling plant mage has always been clear, but Midseason presented an opportunity to really let her playstyle bloom. Zyra’s plants are key to this zone-controlling strategy, but Rampant Growth’s seed-dispensing limitations have always left her wanting more. Zyra’s fantasy promises a sprawling landscape of minions to grow and do her bidding, but ends up as ‘grow two plants on a moderate cooldown that die pretty easily’. Now, Zyra doesn’t just plant a garden - she is the garden. Cultivating the ‘Rise of the Thorns’ into more than just a title, Zyra’s becoming a walking zone of threat, deploying seeds that grow into explosive teamfight potential the longer she’s in an area. Combining Stranglethorns’ plant-enhancing frenzy with more plants than ever before, Zyra’s reclaiming her strategic identity as the disengage pick, making would-be divers heed the warning to keep off the grass. Unquote.png
  • General
    • BASE HEALTH: 479 ⇒ 499
    • BASE MOVEMENT SPEED: 325 ⇒ 340
    • TEXTURES: Zyra’s base textures have been updated
    • ICONS: Zyra has all-new ability icons
  • UPDATED Queen of Thorns.png Passive - Garden of Thorns
    Seeds spawn around Zyra periodically, becoming faster with level. If an enemy champion steps on a seed, it dies. If Zyra is hiding in brush, seeds will not spawn until she reveals herself. Casting Deadly Spines or Grasping Roots near seeds causes them to grow into Plants. Plants of the same type deal 50% less damage against the same target.
    • PASSIVE SEED LIFETIME: 30 seconds
    • PLANT HEALTH: 6 ⇒ 4
    • PLANT DAMAGE: 23-140 (at levels 1-18) ⇒ 19-127 (at levels 1-18)
    • PLANT RATIO: 0.2 ability power ⇒ 0.15 ability power
    • SIGHTLESS SEEDS: Unlike seeds spawned by Rampant Growth, seeds spawned by Garden of Thorns grant no vision passively or when stepped on
  • Deadly Bloom.png Q - Deadly Spines
    • NAME: Deadly Bloom ⇒ Deadly Spines
    • COST: 75 mana ⇒ 60 mana
    • DAMAGE: 70/105/140/175/210 ⇒ 60/90/120/150/180
    • RATIO: 0.65 ability power ⇒ 0.55 ability power
    • NEW PLANTER BOX: Size increased; now grows in a rectangle instead of a circle
    • NEW OVERGROWTH: Grows plants slightly outside of the damage area (like Grasping Roots)
  • Rampant Growth.png W - Rampant Growth
    • W SEED LIFETIME: 30 seconds ⇒ 60 seconds
    • REMOVED COOLDOWN REDUCTION: No longer grants cooldown reduction
    • NEW MAXIMUM PLANT HEALTH: 10/20/30/40/50%
  • Stranglethorns.png R - Stranglethorns
    • REMOVED PLANT FRENZY: No longer grants 50% attack speed to Plants
    • NEW PLANT IMPACT: Plants enraged by Stranglethorns deal 50% bonus damage

Patch Notes 6.2

  • Fixed a bug that caused Zyra's plant attacks to ignore a target's dodge status

Patch Notes 5.22

  • Mana & Mana Regen Adjustments
    • BASE MANA REGEN: 6 ⇒ 8.5

Patch Notes 5.21

  • Bugfix
    • Haunted Zyra's plant attack VFX are once again appropriately spooky

Patch Notes 5.18
Zyra’s plants are much more consistent at acquiring targets. It’s a pretty big deal.
"If you’re a Zyra player, you’re no stranger to having your plants misbehave (or sometimes just stop... doing anything, really) when you want them to rip your enemies to shreds. We’ve all been there, so we took a look under the hood to re-root how they work. What we had left was pretty scary. We’re not opposed to further changes (if necessary) but ‘my plants actually attack when they didn’t' ended up a lot stronger than we first thought, so this patch we’re planting the seeds and waiting to see what grows."

  • Rampant Growth
    • Smart Plants: Plants will reprioritize attack targets when their primary target is obscured by fog of war instead of simply ceasing to fire altogether.
    • Forget-Me-Nots: Plants now prioritize the target Zyra has most recently attacked rather than the closest target she has attacked in the past 4 seconds. Champions recently attacked will still be prioritized over minions.

Patch Notes 5.3
Zyra's plants now have range indicators for her. "In our never-ending Crusade for Clarity (tm), Zyra's getting hooked up with sweet range indicators for each of her plants to help her really appreciate the things they do for her. Appreciate your plants, Zyra. Please."

  • Deadly Bloom.png Q - Deadly Bloom
    • SPITTING DISTANCE: Thorn Spitters now display their range when grown
  • Grasping Roots.png E - Grasping Roots
    • LASHING OUT: Vine Lashers now display their range when grown

Patch Notes 3.13
Summary: Deadly Bloom's damage has been reduced overall but her AP ratio has been increased. Rampant Growth's passive cooldown reduction has decreased. The plants spawned from Rampant Growth have had their base damage reduced at lower levels, but increased later on. We’ve also improved Zyra’s overall feel by making seed transformation/enraging plants more intuitive.
Context: Our overall strategy here is to tone down Zyra's early level poke damage and, while we are reducing some of her overall power, we also want to improve her ability to fluidly combo cast with seeds. Additionally, reducing the base damage of her spells while increasing the AP ratios is aimed at reducing her power as a support without hurting her capabilities as a mage.

  • Deadly Bloom
    • Range reduced to 800 (from 825)
    • Damage changed to 70/105/140/175/210 (+0.65 Ability Power) (from 75/115/155/195/235 (+0.6 Ability Power))
  • Rampant Growth
    • Passive Cooldown Reduction reduced to 2/4/6/8/10% (from 4/8/12/16/20%)
    • Plant base damage changed to 23 (+6.5 per champion level) (from 26 (+6 per champion level))
    • Reduced the delay before seeds can be stepped on by enemies to 1.5 seconds (from 3)
    • Range increased to 825 (from 800)
    • Fixed a bug where spells would rarely not turn seeds into plants
  • Stranglethorns
    • Stun no longer persists after the knockup ends
    • Now properly enrages plants created within the bramble zone after Stranglethorns has been cast
