Guide to Synergizing Zyra and Pyke

Tips for Playing as Zyra with Pyke

Placing a seed in your spell's path after you have cast it gives you the best chance of having a seed in the proper spot.

Seeds grant vision to your team.

Zyra is a great ambusher - look for opportunities to set a trap of seeds in brush, then lure enemies in.

Advice to Understand How Pyke Will Play

A lot of your agressive spells are also your escapes. Make sure you always have a plan to get out of the fight.

Hitting an enemy with the Hold version of Bone Skewer will always pull them the same distance. Use it in melee range to throw targets behind you.

Pyke is very fragile so don't be afraid to temporarily run from a fight. You can regenerate a significant amount of health from Gift of the Drowned Ones when enemies can't see you.

The Tap version of Bone Skewer is much faster and deals additional damage.

Is Zyra better when played alongside Pyke?

There is no perfect champion pairing for Zyra that will 100% of the time be her best ally. Yet, Pyke is a very typical companion for Zyra. By playing on the same side as Zyra, he decreases their win rate by -0.2% to 52.0%. This shows that there is only a small bond between Zyra and Pyke that results in them performing worse together than alone.

Pyke has a lower difficulty than Zyra. That means you don't need to be cautious when arranging Pyke allies to fight alongside, as they will need a lower level of skill to do well with you.

Fighting cooperatively, Zyra players should expect to witness an overall large increase in your team’s ability to deal physical damage. Together, these two can tear through the other team with a lot of physcial damage.

In contrast, by aligning Zyra and Pyke together, you will not be providing your side a lot of engage potential. We recommend you include other champs on your team that nullifies this hole in their abilities.

Regardless of your Pyke ally's skill level, you should focus on maximizing your gold income, warding to avoid ambushes, and taking down objectives. If you heed this simple advice, you will do well anyway.
