Guide to Countering Zyra as Annie

Tips for Playing as Annie against Zyra

Molten Shield is a good spell to cast to work up to Annie's stun, so sometimes it's beneficial to grab at least 1 rank in it early.

Striking killing blows on minions with Disintegrate enables Annie to farm extremely well early in the game.

Storing a stun for use with her ultimate can turn the tide of a team fight.

Advice to Win Against Zyra

Moving the fight to a different area will deprive Zyra of accumulated seeds.

Moving closer to Zyra can be a smart move if she places plants too far away from herself.

Seeds placed by Zyra's W are larger, a different color, and grant a small amount of vision to her team.

Zyra's seeds can be destroyed by stepping on them. If she tries to grow them as you do, dodge back at the last moment.

Plants take fixed damage from attacks and effects, similar to wards. They also expire quickly on their own.
