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.
BACKGROUND: So basically, I picked up Nidalee because I have a thing for feral druids. THATS JUST ME. ANYWAYS. I built Nidalee so she can get around and be a **** to all of the players on the field. This is a very greedy build meaning you will have to kill steal, chase, throw your javelin through walls. WHATEVER. I just made this build so she maximizes her ability to chase/ gank with the snowball items. SO ANYWAYS on with the build.
Spells:Ghost/Flash for two reasons. 1: RUUUUUN. 2: Gank.
The ghost will help catch up to escaping chars, and the Flash will he help if they go around a turn or blink past a wall
Basic Combo... for everything: Bushwhack->Primal Surge->Javelin->shapeshift->Pounce->Takedown->Swipe->Repeat cougar sequence->Repeat whole sequence
This combo makes it easy for me to solo any monster (ie.dragon) and also a good chasing technique. Remember to use your primal surge if you're low on health
Ability Priority: Cougar>Javelin>Primal Surge>Bushwhack
Your Javelin is a total nuke early game (at full range). Try to max it early for maximum potential
Early Game: I start off with Doran's ring for the mana regen and a health pot so i can lane for AS LONG AS POSSIBLE. You want to get your snowball items at around the same time meaning you want to save up maybe 2.5k before backing out. Try and solo a lane/ help in ganks if you can, the level advantage for Nidalee is EXTREMELY crucial. It makes it that much easier to gank mid/late game.
Mid Game: Just like my Ezreal build at this point you should just be ganking and chasing down weakened enemies. Try and get blue buff so you can spam your heal and javelin. YOU ARE NOT THE PRIORITY THOUGH. This guide is greedy enough. No need to hog buffs too
Late Game: By this time you should be well fed. If not it's going to make the end of the game reaaaallly difficult. You'll hardly be able to 1v1 anybody if you dont have +10 stacks on your items, but it is still possible. ANYWAYS if you can, try to turret dive unprotected turrets. Just Primal Surge yourself then spam your javelin like a pro. you should be able to down turrets with ease.
Notes: AVOID DIEING AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. I can tell you how much of a ***** it is to lose 6 stacks when you're almost at max. And with your summoner spells+your pounce you should be able to get away easily
This guide is very dependent on the player's ability to assist their team in chasing/ganking enemies. AND NOT PLAYING TOO AGGRESSIVE. Use your takedown to knock out low health enemies, I guarantee you will kill anything with less that 1/3 health.
