Wow people are being really rude. I'm excited for Zyra, yes Riot should be frank with us as to why she isn't out yet but you don't have to be *******s about it.

I, for one, am very interested in hearing about her development and the ideas that were rejected or modified. Its good to know more about the process behind the creation of a champ. You people saying "no one cares!" or "Riot is just buying time" are being childish. You claim Riot is money grubbing but they're a business, if they can get more people to buy her using this tactic they have every right to do so and you calling them out on it only to demand the product faster only justifies their actions.

I'm not trying to pick a fight but this is a valid marketing strategy, get used to it. :/

Riot. Says good Zyra players will place seeds early and strategically, then makes the seed life span 30sec so you have little to no time to use them that way. -_-

What I read here: She's a lot like what Karma was suppose to be. We just hope we got it right this time.

I've always wondered how much time and thought was dedicated to our beloved champs. Zyra sounds very exciting to play. This has been very insightful. Thanks.

You may or may not like Zyra, but she is new and fresh, objectively.
I do have 1 small balance complaint about Zyra, and that comes with her E plant. Albeit early game it's fantastic... it kind of falls off when you can make the Q plant slow with Rylai's. Which is already a staple amongst most casters. I think the slow from the E should be like.. a 1 time thing when it's summoned, and be a HUGE slow, like nasus'.

lol ever actually played karma? her R E Q combo makes people run in fear. she has one of the best shields in the game. and its her highest ratio. shes more of a hybrid carry support cause she helps out by bursting don healing and shielding. i love tethering an enemy and letting my team mates bring them down. cause they get boosted while the target is slowed.

oh forgot to mention that she deals her best dmg with 40 magic pen. otherwise she is sub par. but that 40 magic pen makes her dangerous due to the 80 dmg they take extra XD
