Counter Tips

Zyra's seeds can be crushed by stepping on them.
Zyra's plants need to take 3 hits from any source of damage. Minions will deal 1/2 damage.
Try to dodge Zyra's passive skillshot, as it deals massive pure damage.
Step away from Zyra's ultimate - after a short delay, it will knock you up!
