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.
i focus primarily on maxing javelin, but according to the situation, feel free to adjust.
i cant tell you to strictly use this skill build, but the skill build from lvl 1 to lvl 6 should be essential (W on lvl 5 to get ready for pounce in cougar form)
Mana crystal 2 pots in the beginning, you can go amplifying tome, but the the ap boost doesnt really help in the beginning IMO
I previously used lich bane, and a lot of people use it probably because of its passive scaling off of AP (this is an AP nidalee build), but the trinity force is a better well-rounded item. Rushing for SHEEN is essential --> 8 skill rotations with nidalee. People often rush rageblade, but i go for sheen first.
If you're doing well in-game, just wait until u can buy trin force. If not, get a phage to help u with survivability.
I get sorcerers if there are only 1-2 carry champs in my team (including me) --> helps with the javelin
I get merc treads if the other team has a lot of CC or if my team is losing
Then get rageblade, with BLASTWAND first.
When building for Zhonya's hourglass, i usually get the armor first for survivablity, but it's up to you. I dont need to explain why i get hourglass before deathcap :)
Banshee just to finish it off! however, if it looks like ur team comp isnt that great, too much cc on other side, or ur losing, i would rush BV immediately after trin force.
flash-->ESSENTIAL to nidalee, because she jumps in and out of teamfights--> the flash is a good run away mechanism or it can even be used to chase an enemy
cleanse--> because it boosts my survivability--nidalee is a bit squishy even with armor.
