This is an AP/Hybrid style to play with Nidalee, with this build you will be able to heal/gank/support/push. All of Nidalee's moves benefit from AP, you will need to be semi decent with skill shots because of the fact thats where you will end up using your Javelin Toss to open/killing blow your opponent.

Spells: For this build I chose Exhaust/Clarity, but I also use Flash and Teleport depending on teams.

Runes: The Runes are just what I have been using as of lately, they might change but for now this is fine. Also as a side note I do like to use CD reductions rune books simply for the fact that Nidalee's moves are all on relatively short CD's.


Pros:
Burst Damage
Heals
Quick Getaways
Traps (Awareness)
Range/Melee

Cons:
Squishy
Low Health
No CC



Early Game:
Okay I start off by buying me a Saph Crystal, and 2 potions one health and one mana that should leave you flat broke. Now put your first point in Javelin Toss, take your lane and remember that Nidalee is squishy so if you get ambushed at level one and you don't have Flash or Heal there is a good chance you will die. Stay max range and use your JT to harass and to get the last hit on multiple minions. This is a very slow part of the game till level 6, so play smart, and remember to use clarity when needed to keep you in your lane heal yourself as well as your partner.

Mid Game:
About this time you should have your Sheen, Boots, finishing Lich Bane and working on G. Blade. Now you can start your ganking assisting, and your lane pushing. Set traps in bushes that are used to most in ganking, it's good to do this simply because it allows you to stay aware of enemies planning an ambush, also try to set traps in enemies paths before initiating a fight so that their magic resist is lowered and that will enable your JT to do some nice damage either as an opener or a finisher.

Side Note: By level 8-9 you can solo the bosses for your buffs, this spec gives the buffs extended durations and helps Nidalee overall with the CD/Mana Regen in the 5v5 Map.

End Game:
Surprisingly end game you might only have 4-5 items, and thats with excellent minion farming. At this point you should be up to your Deathfire, and able to push as well as gank due in favor to Nidalee's Pounce in Cougar form she is very unpredictable so use your traps to harass and make your enemy more vulnerable to your attacks, heal your teammates when needed and remember that your heal is a buff which allows you to take full advantage of Nidalee's burst damage.
