Nautilus Take Nautlilus as an example of all tank junglers he has low clear speed great ganks and lot of cc. I recomend that you counter jungle him to gain advantage and prevent him to be great tank late game

Introduction

Pros/Cons

Pros:
+Huge clear speed when you get going
+Very fast at catching / running
+Strong late game
+With this build even more stickier than before
+Has innate sustain wich is now a bit stronger with low amount of ap
+Great map awareness with Bushwhack

Cons:
-Takes time to get used to
-Requires lot of farm
-Rather weak ganks since she has 0 cc
-Hard mechanics (kinda based on landing skillshots)

Skilling order

Max q for max damage while ganking(trust me it's still easier to land than w)
Second skill you want to max is e for better sustain
Rest of the points goes for w
(Put points in ult at lvl 6,11,16 ofc)

When to pick Nidalee jungle?

Nidalee jungle is decent pick in soloq and when your team has cc on lanes. If there is 0 cc your ganks will surely suck. If you pick it anyways just farm your jungle and counter jungle weaker ones.


Guide Top

Jungling

Put your w on spawning spot of red/blue buff. Kite it and then smite + pounce. Later try to throw spear to biggest jungle monster from distant and just burst it with cougar form q.


Guide Top

Ganking

Ask lane to go in and follow up from the side enemy will be running to. Try to land a spear and finish with your cougar form.


Guide Top

Team fighting

When team fight is about to start poke enemy from back line and heal your allies. Team fighting is still weak on Nidalee but if it erupts try to sneak on squishys.

What do i need from my items?

When building Nidalee jungle you need cooldown reduction, magic penetration, movement speed and ap

-Edit added new assassin build based on tenacity in team fights, cooldown reduction, movement speed, slow and magic penetration given by Death Fire's Grasp. You can make this into blue build by adding cooldown reduction for 10% from masteries and glyphs and replace spirit visage with banshee's veil.
-Edit deleted first build and tweaked assassin build. I think new build is a bit better with more assassination power and faster wave clear (+ old jungle item will be changed into something more useful on tanks)
-Edit added new bruiser build for those who prefer ad Nidalee.
