I have been going at zyra support. I still don't have the E-W timing very well yet but its getting there. I should be trying it tomorrow on normals. So far on bots it seems fun to use. However should i build her like normal supports? i.e Shurelay's, Locket, Aegis, etc. Or should i get her Ap instead of support centered items. Sighstone is still a must though I assume.
Max E, W, Q
I typically get Sightstone/Philo and then boots 1 and then a Morello. She's much easier to build into AP than some others and she's great at it. The Morelleo's and her W gives 40% allowing you to take Sorc shoes if you're doing really great and bump up your damage, or Mobility if you just need the utility. She's also not that mana hungry so you can forgo a Chalice.
I also like Twin Shadows on her as well, to help give some more oomph and the move speed, and then your last slot should probably be Aegis/Locket but it doesn't necessarily need to be, depending on team comps. Turn the Philo into whatever you want, but I prefer Elisa's cause Ohmwrecker is never really worth it and you typically get it too late to be worth anything, and the Shureylia's will set you over the CDR cap, but if you don't care about that then get it. Mikael's can work too if you're against a lot of CC.
Rylai's/Liandry's can work too as her plants proc them and the Rylai's is great as you can E-WW-Q and the plants will make sure you hit the Q. Just focus on aiming your mouse where the E is so you can get two seeds in with the E while they are rooted.
tl;dr build her ap with utility as going full support wastes her potential, she's basically a more supporty lux/rides the boundry of lux-karma with the best of both worlds
also harass in lane with Q-W but E-WW works if you can nail someone and get both seeds off
