      • Zyra spawns one (occasionally two) seeds every 11 - 6.75 (based on level) seconds in her vicinity but they do not grant vision. Seeds prefer spawning in brush and cannot do so too close together, and the timer on her next seed delays if Zyra is concealed within a brush and there is no room for additional seeds. Zyra can only have 8 seeds planted at a time, which last for 45 seconds.

Plants beyond the first attacking a single target deal only 50% damage.
