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.
Threats to Nidalee with this build
|Garen||Constantly poke him and don't let his passive trigger. Just keep poking and disengage with your pounce if he comes up to you.|
|Illaoi||This champion is a joke vs. Nidalee. You counter her in so many ways. You can constantly harass since she's mele. You can constantly dodge her abilities and tentacles with your pounce. You take her tentacles out so easily with your attack speed and auto attack reset. You should win this lane.|
Hello. I'm Wumbear and I'm currently climbing up the ranked ladder by going bruiser Nidalee top. I finally decided to make a guide. Enjoy!
For runes I take the standard AD Page, with Flat Ad reds & quints with armor yellows and scaling mr blues.
For masteries I take the standard top lane - grasp of the undying keystone path with points in the middle tree for some help csing and some extra dmg.
Your job is to poke, bully, harass, and sustain. Definitely max E first for the lanning phase, then carry on with q second and w last, while upgrading your ult whenever possible.
I have played multiple games adjusting and changing my build and build path. The items you find in the example build is the result of this. These items give you intense tanky stats while still doing TONS of damage to all their squishes while still being able to fend off their front line, with botrk.
Pros / Cons
Pros : High Sustain , Damage, Tanky Stats
Cons: No CC, little AD scaling, getting flamed for "troll picking"
In team fights you can do two things :
1. Land a spear on their backline and go for a kill or two on them
2. Stay in the frontline of your team and protect your carries from harm's way
Your farming is great, thanks to cougar form. To push the wave as fast as possible, pounce onto the faster minions, swipe, and finish them off with takedown, while resetting your auto stacks. Repeat on the front minions and move on.
Unique Skill - Splitpushing
You are a great split pusher. You can clear waves fast, as described above, and you can take towers down fast using your attack speed steroid and making good use of your ability spam and sheen active on the tower. What I mean is that whenever you are taking a tower, make sure you have your primal surge attack speed buff running on you while you go in cougar form and use an ability to proc the extra damage from the sheen passive whenever it's off cool down.
This has been my first ever guide. Any feedback is encouraged and I'm open to any ideas. Thanks for reading!
