Champion Matchups

Introduction

  • Nidalee as a champion is very usefull. For example: Pick Nidalee for support when you are 1st pick, so they will try to counter-pick Nidalee-top and your team will be able to pick exactly counter of their counter :D.
  • If you are good Nidalee then your enemies won't be able to relax, otherwise they lose. Nidalee has good map control by using wards and traps in her jungle and other.
  • She can do a lot of damage even if she hasn't any AP by her Spear and Cougar(6-9lvl). Gives buff to AD carry as Nunu, heals as Soraka, damage as normal AP carry in early.

Masteries

9/0/21


9 : Increase your basic damage.


21 : Be perfect support and stay with full mana.

Runes

  • Marks(MP) & Glyphs(AP) allows you to make damage until you will buy AP (as usual you will have your 1st AP item at level 11-12)


  • Seals & Quints(Gold per sec) allows you to earn money without buying Kage from beginning of the game.

Skills

Passive: Prowl

Explanation:

  • Always stay in bush even if there is a ward, because it allows you to be much more annoying then you are.

W: Bushwhack / Pounce

  • Great escaping machine.



E: Primal Surge / Swipe

Explanation:

R: Aspect Of The Cougar

Early Game

  • Spam traps in all bushes around( even in your jungle to see invades and counter-jungler).
  • Spam spears into support and carry( as you will be able to).

Mid Game

  • Try as soon as possible buy Pre-set Items and spam spears( steal dragon - blind bush check - gank mid ).

Late Game

Team Fights

  • Exhaust on enemy who focus your AD or AP carry.
  • Throw spears in champions at any range.
  • Remove resists by traps.
  • Heal carry.
  • Escape from focus.

Final Comments

  • This all is based on skills. You can't take Nidalee just because it is overpower champion(for example: Blitzcrank) ! I have played a lot of games in normal before pick that champion in ranked games. And now I have 12 wins and only 2 loss as support. (85%)

Actually i have wrote my own guide to Nidalee support, and played her a lot myself in rankeds. First i have to say, your winrate is pretty normal, i don't know if Nidalee support is just overpowered or Nidalee is a lucky champion but 7 wins in a row seems normal.



However, your guide is pretty short ^_^ Also I would not recommend Sheen (--> Lichbane). As Nidalee Support you are so squishy you normally can not get in AA-range without getting half of your HP bursted down. You do not need AAs to be strong on Nidalee, you just want to get your Pickpocket-gold in the early laning phase with the AAs.



Instead of the tear of godess which is not very useful on Nidalee, I would better build an Athenes' since it gives better spamming stats, you do not need to stack the mana and it also provides some defensive MR and AP. Sure, you can use the cougarskills to stack the Tear, but you do not really need the Mana, you do not scale anything with it. Seraphs Embrace has some nice stats though, but Athenes' is cheaper, you get it earlier and since you do not have this much mana the active of Seraphs is pretty poor.
