Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
This is all you need to know about Nidalee in ARAM
I couldn't get a shot of getting to lane before minions, so ignore the minions. I don't toss spears from the bush when I get to lane, I toss them from a position where my spear goes straight through the bush. Preferably by approaching from down further so they can't see me immediately.
It's also one of the first places I trap and consistently keep trapped.
You can reach the health from outside of turret agro range as shown here:
And I like trapping at this choke point (opposite where minions come in from on their side)
You can reach ALMOST to the tip of this bush from outside turret agro range, and you can dance inside and throw a spear and hit the tip of this bush from the health spawn if you're super fast about it. Or just wait til minions. This is a good spot to toss from because you're pretty safe if they're pushed back behind turret.
If you get right up against the turret's agro range you can throw a spear completely through this bush.
You would THINK this angle would be clear of the minion and hit whoever is past it...
But the fact that I just got gold would show that to be a lie
How about this?
Nope that one was fine.
It was fine because 1) the camera angles lie to you sometimes 2) it was a tiny bit more off to the side 3) I was moving and threw while I was moving so I actually threw it more to the side than the final display my aiming thingy had.
Lastly don't forget
Always always always
Run away immediately after throwing your spear.
More distance between you / target = bigger boom.
99.9% of guides don't need most of the **** they have in them. So this is a bare-bones guide.
I'm not gonna talk about my masteries or my runes because honestly who follows guides for that? 99% of the time you just wanna know what items someone takes and what their general skill order is, and what their random tips or comments might be.
I also don't give a **** if the guide is pretty or well formatted. They seriously need a WYSIWYG editor instead of this BBCode nonsense.
Upvote if you feel like it. Downvote if you legitimately think the guide is bad, or if you're a whiny baby who cares too much about formatting. I'm not going to pander to you or thank you for reading or any of that ****ing nonsense. I'm just sick of seeing bad Nids in ARAM giving me AIDs and buying tears and then being constantly oom.
Last thought: If you're on Nid in ARAM and you're not throwing spears literally on cooldown with full CDR then you suck. Spears server to intimidate, stop people from pushing, keep them out of position, and play mind games with where you're going to throw them just as much as they serve to do damage.
You know blitz grabs? You've got the same bullying factor with bigger range and a shorter cooldown. Use it.
