Introduction

I am a dedicated ranged ad player for most of my LoL games and this led to a ton of experimenting ( also many raging teams) and quite a few very rewarding results, Nidalee is one of the most effective of my experimenting.


Guide Top

Why AD Nidalee?

AD Nidalee has insane early game dominance due to her smooth attack animation and most of the time that keeps her fed until late game where she can snipe people off with 2k damage spears. AD Nidalee is the continuation of that dominance and strengthening upon it since her spears already hit insanely high once you hit 14.

Pros/Cons

Pros:
- Great lane sustainability with her early life=steal + attacks-peed and heal combo
= Hurts really bad with almost 100 damage at start and almost 1.1ish attack-speed
- A great challenge for hardcore ad players
- Awesome attack-speed with her e

Cons:
- No cool-down reduction, so that may be a problem
- Not as effective heal as AP Nidalee would have but still effective

Why so much attack damage from runes?

Considering that early game Nidalee usually seems like a joke people tend not to get armor thinking you are trolling, so your last whisper late game will be a nail in their coffin. Despite the fact they will think you are trolling, they may still build armor, feel free to get early last whisper or a black cleaver depending if they have over 140 armor or not. (edit: fairly recently Nidalee ad has became the most highly rated guide for nidalee, so people may be more serious with armor, heavy armor pen is advised if you start seeing basic armor items on the enemy team.)

Skill Sequence

The early heal in combo with your zeal will be wrecking with lane sustainability, while your spears still do a lot of damage late game.

Farming

Insanely easy farming as AD Nidalee is one of the highlights of her early game, if you have specced into improved damage to minions then you will tend to out-farm every single champion (except maybe Annie)

Ending
