Introduction

Oh Nidalee, how you have changed. Nobody wants to play her AP anymore because an AD bruiser seems to be the way to go solo top. Well, I've been trying to figure out an AP build that brings her back to the healing for 600+, spears for over 1k, favorite legendary poker she once was. And I think I have the build to do just that.

Before you look at the masteries, runes, etc. and count the build out completely, keep scrolling, give the build a shot. If you've been playing Nidalee for some time like I have, you'll want to give AP a shot again (That spear connecting with an AD carry / support for a kill... priceless)

Unfortunately, this build may not do as well without runes and masteries required for a level 30, so keep that in mind if you're trying her without runes. They help tremendously early game and allow her to solo top very well against most common picks.

Pros / Cons

Pros and Cons

Pros
Great laner, big sustain
Easy to farm past level 6
Very mobile, lots of escapes with her Cougar form
Big damage spears

Cons
No CC
Too weak for kills early game (barring a stupid solo top opponent)
Very squish, but you should never be on the front lines as AP Nidalee
Mana hungry if spamming everything, needs blue from somewhere.
Needs amazing map awareness (Wards)
Needs amazing farm to be great (for those 1k+ spears)
To be honest, needs the right team comp.
