Champion Matchups

Introduction: Nidalee?

Nidalee is a really unique champion; she can play any role And with any build. I started playing Nidalee after a friend of mine told me about her insane poke damage with a single spear when she has a pure AP build. I picked her up in season 2 looked for a guide. I never found one to my liking and decided just to go with my instinct.

This is what i loved about Nidalee when i first picked her up AP.
1. Spears have INSANE DAMAGE
2. High mobility due to cougar form and passive.
3. Can goes from spear throwing to upfront bursting assassin due to cougar.
3. POWERFUL heal GIVES INFINITE SUSTAIN during a siege.
4. Maid skin.

although one of the things that i have to say for most build other than mine is that she caps out in the early mid game and falls off heavily in the late game.

Comparison: AD, hybrid or AP?

AD
+Sustained Damage in teamfights
+tanky
-sustain only from lifesteal

HYBRID
+moderate burst and sustained damage
+lots of armor
+400 health heal
+Late game build

AP
- Skill shot reliant
-squishy
+500 health heal
-Falls off late game

Masteries

These are the mysteries that I would go with hybrid Nidalee. AP and AD in offence and mana regen in utility. Mana regen because Nidalee will need it to sustain with her heal and poke with you spears if you want to keep these up.

Summoner Spells




Explanation:


These are pretty much what you want on hybrid Nidalee, the usual.


is an option if you want to take it. The slow is useful before you get and keep the perpetually slowed. If you can't fight a champion you can almost always get away unless they built you don't really need exhaust.


if you feel like split pushing. I highly recommend this because you can push and slip away from the enemy in cougar form.

Item Builds

Here is, the item build.

and ? HOW? JERRY ARE YOU INSANE?

Well, due to the season 3 changes you now only have to charge the tear of the goddess for 750 mana instead of the previous 1000. This makes it really easy to have both the and by 35 minutes especially on Nidalee who doesn't need mana to cast her 4 second cooldown pounce.

OR

These two item do very similar things. I usually would go for the gauntlet because it gives CC along with the CLDR, armor and mana (remember and )

Strong armor item, CLDR, mana. If the enemy has high AD definitely.

Ofcourse! Health, mana, MR a good final item. But there are some alternate options bellow if you don't need MR.

Some may go for a it's also very good. the GA does change the focus of you to another person in the team fight. You will be powerful late game I would probably get GA or banshee's veil because you get a very powerful shield from

Skills

Passive: Prowl

Explanation:
Running super fast and jumping over walls in the jungle. Don't chase a Nidalee.




Q: Javelin Toss / Takedown

Explanation:
In this build the spear definitely wont be doing over half the carry's health but still does alot of damage due to the toggle on
the at level 6 many people underestimate the damage of takedown it can do 300 burst to finish off your enemy.




W: Bushwhack / Pounce

Explanation:
The trap is good to ward your lane at level 1 cover the brushes and throw a spear. You should still buy wards because it is avoidable.
Pounce Charges very fast it's what makes this build viable.




E: Primal Surge / Swipe

Explanation:
Very powerful heal and attack speed buff for you or your carry. they have recently changed the AP ratio on swipe to 60% so that's good for more burst damage.




R: Aspect Of The Cougar

Explanation:

It's Nidalee's thing. Don't question it.



Early Game

Stay back, heal what damage you take, stay safe and farm.

when you hit 6 start charging that tear. Therm
you might be able to deal some notable damage in cougar form then heal it back in human form.

GANK OTHER LANES because you move quickly as Nidalee, you can heal your teammate and secure a kill

Team Fights

Stay safe for the most part, when an enemy is CCed you want to go for them and burst them out of the fight.

Your job is to assassinate the high priority targets while keeping your carry safe and healing up your team.

If you can avoiding team fights even if your team is winning is good with a Nidalee because she can heal your team and provide powerful poke during sieges.

Final Comments

Here is my first guide. Plz comment.

This build on Nidalee I feel is good because it does not have any late game drop off which is one of the worst things on Nidalee.
