Upon taking fatal damage, Zyra returns to her plant form for up to 8 seconds, becoming untargetable. She cannot cast any of her standard abilities while in this state, but can cast Vengeful Thorn using any learned ability after 2 seconds.
Active:Zyra fires a single piercing thorn in the direction of the cursor, dealing「 100 - 440 」「 100 / 120 / 140 / 160 / 180 / 200 / 220 / 240 / 260 / 280 / 300 / 320 / 340 / 360 / 380 / 400 / 420 / 440(80 + (20 × Zyra's level)) 」true damage to every enemy it passes through.
Rise of the Thorns is a passive ability that triggers on Zyra's death.
Zyra's death timer begins when she dies, not when Rise of the Thorns has finished. In the event that the respawn timer is shorter than the time she spends in Rise of the Thorns, her respawn timer is extended so that she has a minimum respawn time of 2 seconds.
Zyra can only fire Vengeful Thorn with an ability she has ranked. For example, if Deadly Bloom has not been ranked she cannot use the first ability slot or its shortcuts (default: Q) to fire the Vengeful Thorn.

COOLDOWN: 7 / 6.5 / 6 / 5.5 / 5
Active:Zyra sprouts thorns at the target location after a 0.625-second delay, dealing magic damage to enemies within the area.
Seeds cannot be targeted by enemies (including towers) and as such will not detonate enemy traps, such as Noxious Trap or Bushwhack.
While only four seeds can be placed at a time, there is no limit for the number of plants grown at the same time. With maximum cooldown reduction and max ranked Rampant Growth, it is possible to have 8 plants active for brief amount of time.
The minimum recharge time for each rank of this skill is 10.2 / 9.6 / 9 / 8.4 / 7.8.
COST: 70 / 75 / 80 / 85 / 90 mana
Active:Zyra sends a surge of vines in the target direction, dealing magic damage to enemies hit and rooting them for a short duration.
Rampant Growth: If Grasping Roots hits a seed, a Vine Lasher grows from it and lasts for up to 10 seconds, attacking the nearest enemy with short-ranged attacks that slow its target by 30% for 2 seconds.
Active:Zyra summons a monstrous thicket at the target location, dealing magic damage to all enemies in the area as it expands. After 2 seconds, the vines snap upward, knocking up all enemies caught in the thicket for 1 second.
Magic Damage: 180 / 265 / 350 (+ 70% AP)
Rampant Growth: Plants within the thicket are enraged and gain 50% bonus attack speed.
Contrary to popular belief, plants will not prioritize enemy champions by default. While Zyra has an active plant, her basic attacks against champions will "mark" them as a target (placing a small icon above their head). The mark will fade if Zyra loses sight of a marked enemy. Plants will prioritize:
Marked enemy champions.
Zyra's attack target.
Unknown default priority, likely the nearest enemy.
Note that plants will often prioritize enemy champions on their first attack, which will occur almost instantly upon being spawned. Their attack priority will kick in on their second attack.
Cannot attack structures.
Plants take modified damage from all sources:
Auto-attacks from minions and monsters deal 1 damage.
