- 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.
9 : Increase your basic damage.
21 : Be perfect support and stay with full mana.
- 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.
- Always stay in bush even if there is a ward, because it allows you to be much more annoying then you are.
Q: Javelin Toss / Takedown
- The only skill that can carry the whole game. Even if your team lose, you can easily harras enemies before teamfight.
W: Bushwhack / Pounce
- Map control( also decrease Magic and Armour ).
- Great escaping machine.
E: Primal Surge / Swipe
- Always try to keep it on champion with higher AD and save lifes.
R: Aspect Of The Cougar
- Best escaping machine in game + don't forget that cougar also makes Tons of Damage( speacially with Lich bane )
Starting Items :
- 2x Sight Wards allows you to have map control until you buy Sight stone.
- 2x Faerie charm allows you to keep spamming Spears and Traps all the time.
Pre-set Items :
- Philosopher - Mana regen + Gold per sec.
- Tear - Easy to increase mana by using spells in Cougar form.
- Sheen - Increases your damage x2.
- Boots - Higher speed , more damage.
Final Items :
- Eleisas miracle - Permanent Mana regen so you will be able to spam Spears all the time without losing mana in late game.
- Archangel - gives highest AP in game.
- Rabandons - also gives AP.
- Lich bane - increase your damage in Cougar xMutiple times.
- Void staff - Helps you remove a lot of MR if enemies have bought it.
- Zhonyas hourglass - Removes focus + increases heal + survive.
- 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).
- Try as soon as possible buy Pre-set Items and spam spears( steal dragon - blind bush check - gank mid ).
- Harras with spear.
- Places wards & traps.
- 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.
- 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%)
