Last week, we posted the teaser of Zyra that Morello leaked to League fans. Just a few minutes ago, the official reveal hit the League of Legends front page. Here is that info, along with a little about what to expect with this interesting looking champ. She also has 4 ears… Weird… Morello is in italics.
Sometimes the most dangerous predators in the wild are the ones you’d never expect – even the vegetation in Valoran! Zyra, mysterious and alluring, is one powerful plant that is poised and ready to unleash nature’s fury on the League of Legends. As fierce as she is relentless, Zyra uses the deadly vines and wild overgrowth of the Plague Lands as her weapons, planting seeds on the battlefield that spring to life into powerful allies. Are you the type that takes great joy in laughing maniacally as the thorns rise up around your foes, shredding them to pieces with the power of nature itself? If so, you’ll go wild for Zyra, Rise of the Thorns.
Let’s throw another taste out there…
One of her abilities spawns a seed on the ground that, initially, does almost nothing.
Would this be related to Sadida’s Shoe from Wakfu/Dofus? In Wakfu, they summon an immobile doll that doesn’t do anything. If you cast a spell on it, it comes to life depending on what the element of the spell was.
Wow, you actually did get the inspiration. It doesn’t play just like this (would have problems in LoL), but it sparked the idea.
Well done, sir.
Morello, I created a champ that seems similar to your “Zyra” and you already have 48 Red posts on here and I will probably go through and read them eventually but for now I have some questions.1. Does she use a whip?
2. Is she a support?
3. If 2 is yes, is it universal / semi universal?
4. Will she have lore that ties her in with Lulu/Maokai?
5. If you do manage to answer these questions and the majoriy are yes, where did you hide the camera in my room?EDIT: So I went through and read the post and saw that she had an ability similar to my Q and she also had 2 cc and a slow, where the **** is the camera?
6. Can I just show up and give you guys champion ideas? (Some are unique, as in I haven’t seen them, while others are just for fun or lore.)
The secret to design is that ideas aren’t that valuable or special on their own (that’s the easy part), but making it actually work, be fun to play as and against, be thematically cohesive, etc are the challenges. Pitching ideas can be fun for its own sake, but it’s not something we get a ton of value on (and can end up in ugly legal stuff if we’re not careful).
