Moving through brush increases Nidalee's movement speed by 15% for 2 seconds.
Pretty useless in laningphase, but when it comes to ganking or hunting people Nidalee turns into a little Warwick. You just need to touch the brush and get MS for 2 seconds, so if you leave the brush you get still MS for 2 seconds. And this is why you can't catch Nidalee in the Wild. With Punce (the Jump of Cougar) you should be able to rush from brush to brush without loosing your passive.
Q: Javelin Toss / Takedown
Human: Nidalee tosses her javelin, dealing 55 / 95 / 140 / 185 / 230 (+65% of ability power) magic damage on impact (deals up to 250% damage the further away the target is).
Cougar: Nidalee's next attack deals additional damage based on how low her opponent's life is.
Cost 50 / 60 / 70 / 80 / 90mana
This why people say Nidalee is broken/OP/FCK SPEARSSSR. This is one of the spells where you just need to hit ONE to change a whole fight, mostly even before it starts. If you got your
it's usually enough to hit a tank once or twice to shut him down so he wont initiate. Landing a spear on a squishy target makes their healthbar getting more than 4/5 red.
: This spell is almost the same as Elises Q in spider form, BUT it procs lichbane and other onhit-effects, so i would call it much more broken. Btw there is a nice Bug you can see in the Video in the Tips and Tricks section (which makes this spell even more op).
W: Bushwhack / Pounce
Human: Nidalee lays a trap that deals 80 / 125 / 170 / 215 / 260 (+40% of ability power) damage over 2 seconds, reveals the target, and reduces their armor and magic resistance by 20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40% for 12 seconds. Traps last for 4 minutes.
Cougar: Nidalee lunges forward, dealing damage to surrounding enemies.
Cost 60 / 75 / 90 / 105 / 120mana
: One of the secret spells which nobody really understands. It can hit more than one target, gives you vision for 12 seconds and decreases the resists of everyone who runs over it
. DONT UNDERESTIMATE THIS.
E.g. you are tank and have 200 armor and 150 magic resist. You run over a trap (lvl 5) and look what happenes to your resistences:
200 - (200/100 * 40) = 120 armor left
150 - (150/100 * 40) = 90 magic resist left
Try to be tanky now!
: This is your ability why Nidalee makes everyone fear the wild. a little flash every 4 seconds while you deal a decent amount of damage + you stack your
. Because Cougar abilities dont cost mana you can spam your punce like Amy Winehouse sniffing. In the Tips and Tricks section there is a video in which you can see every wall you can jump over.
E: Primal Surge / Swipe
Human: Nidalee heals an ally champion for 50 / 85 / 120 / 155 / 190 (+70% of ability power) and grants them a 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 / 60% attack speed for 7 seconds.
Cougar: Nidelee claws at enemies in front of her.
Cost 60 / 80 / 100 / 120 / 140mana
: Many Nidalee players always heal themselves or the fulltank while their adc is dying. But in higher ranks you really should heal him, even if he is full health, because giving a
60% attackspeed is much more worth than healing the ignited tank.
Keep in mind that healing someone can be a danger for you, because your
has a low range and when somebody needs help you need to get close to him.
: With your
(both Cougar form) you can clean ranged caster minions and later with much AP and both on rank 5 you can clean melee minions in one combo.
This spell is your 'range' finisher on
, because your enemy doesnt need to sit on your face to hit him.
R: Aspect Of The Cougar
Passive: Each additional rank increases the effectiveness of Nidalee's cougar abilities.
Nidalee transforms into a vicious cougar, gaining 20 movement speed and a new set of abilities.
Cougar op, no mana cost on any spell, more movement speed for chase or escape, finisher spells inside. No more to explain.
