Introduction

By this time you should be ganking and farming to try for that . Play safe if you want a perfect game, you have and use them without hesitating they will save you. You want to push other lanes and place traps in brush to be used like wards. If you are crushing the other team push with your team and get kills. Don't be afraid to go in there. You can also jump, flash and claw for kills then ghost out. DO NOT FORGET TO HEAL!!! I can't stress this enough you maxed your heal first remember so make sure you are using it. As soon as you get your and have guardians you are a pro. Your main object in team fights is to be annoying. Try to make the other team chase you while your team kills. If they lose focus on you jump back into the fight. Another tip for you is when you are getting chased use cat to jump away and try to heal. Make sure if they do kill you and guardians is bringing you back to life you are in human form not cat. After you come alive heal, pop hourglass, heal again, then cat and run.

Items

1) Begging game use your traps to replace wards. This is not recommended in ranked because wards are better than traps but at level 4 it would be okay.

2) Don't be afraid to go in there, if you are used to spear throwing Nid it might take some time to adjust

3) Practice the walls you can jump over, try it in practice game or just try to go it in normal game. (Also when your jumping over a wall and you haven't played Nidalee you must use your mouse and click as close to the cliff as you want once Nidalee has stopped moving use your jump and she should jump over the cliff or on it.)

4) This is a different play style and it may take some time getting used to. You do somewhat okay damage but your goal is to bait the enemy team and to keep going. You can stay in fights for the longest time and you should be able to land a kill

5) If your about to die try to die by a cliff so when bring you back to life you can jump away .

6) your Q is a great ks tool but you are only the carry begging game end game you switch to more support with your baiting abilities.

7) Have fun and enjoy this build !!!

Runes

Greater Mark of Desolation - I get the armor pen marks to help with my early farm and harass. At level six the armor pen from these will definitely help you land a kill.

Greater Seal of Replenishment - I get the mana regain seals to give me that little mana boost + this really helps keep your mana up especially needed if you have to spam your heal.

- I know that it doesn't reduce the cool down on pounce but the cooldown on your heal is pretty long and this gives you a great boost

- The health bonus + again helps your early game, and make Nidalee a less squishy champ

Greater Quintessence of Desolation - A little more armor pen to help with that harass I found it better to get one of these instead of three health quints because the slight damage is more effective than the extra 26 health

Masteries

So in the begging you want to grab your and try for mid or solo. This build works great when you have that level boost over other champions. So while in lane try to last hit minions as best as u can. Maxing heal will stop any harass your opponent throws at you. If your opponent doesn't harass much you can use heal to increase your attack speed and get minions easier. As soon as you hit level 6 don't leave your opponent alone. Harass as much as possible, your OP with cat. You should harass like this... jump, claw, bite, claw, then jump out. If there are no minions around toss a spear to. You want to make your opponent recall, if they don't you can go for the kill. If your opponent decides to recall push that turret as much as possible. When your minions die get back and check top and bot lane to see if you can gank, if not keep farming until you have your .

Skill Sequence

I get primal surge first because it gives your cat extreme damage once you get it. You want to push and keep your opponent away. Although spear Nid is great for this to you loose the attack speed buff so turrets take longer to kill. Make sure to get your Bushwhack at level 4 for the pounce but also use as wards.

Summoner Spells

I chose ghost and flash because they are the best survival spells in the game. can help you get away or add to your awesome chase. is for the same reason. With both of these you should not die.

Other spells -

- for when you need to slow down targets or can even be used when those other champions like Yi or olaf that almost can't be outran

- gives you that extra chance to escape especially for when champions save thier stuns when your guardian angel is bringing you back to life

- Great summoner spell all around and can help you get those kills when your opponent thinks they are safe.

- Can help you with map awareness great spell if you are wanting to help your team more or if little wards are placed


Spells not to use

- When your nidalee her passive plus her cat jump can get her around the map easily even when running back to your lane.

- Most people like it but with this build your spear shots should be limited and with all the mana regain you should be fine

- Nidalee already has a heal would be kind of useless

- Nidalee's farming ability is great and is not needed because she can't jungle at least until she is level 6

- Not very effective with her because you want to get in and out not do an all out attack

- I think the tank or support role should take and although you kind of play both here it is not a great spell for her

- Do I have to explain?

Beg. Game

Mid. Game

By this time you should be ganking and farming to try for that . Play safe if you want a perfect game, you have and use them without hesitating they will save you. You want to push other lanes and place traps in brush to be used like wards. If you are crushing the other team push with your team and get kills. Don't be afraid to go in there.

Late Game

You shouldn't of died at all and if you did it should of been in the begging. You should be called pro becasue your main goal isn't to get kills, it's not to die. It makes other members try to focus you so you lose your perfect score and that's why you bait a lot. One thing people forget when they use this build is, in the begging to mid game they are dominating but late game your damage output is to low compared to other champions so you play more the support role. Just be careful not to get overconfident.
