Guide to Countering Zyra as Vayne

Tips for Playing as Vayne against Zyra

Tumble has many uses, but it cannot pass over walls.

Condemn can be used to both pin targets to walls to ensure a kill, or to escape a pursuer.

Don't go in first to a large teamfight. Wait for your teammates to initiate.

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.
