Items

First, I start off with a and two . The sapphire crystal helps with your catalyst while giving you some extra mana. I paly alittle aggresive with nid's spear but, if it is hard for you to hit and harrass with it, get a heal at level two and play a little supportive and farm. Now, Get your and start leveling. You should be about level 5-6 when you get this, but who knows? it could be less or more. For more speed, get a Sorcerer's Shoes. Finish off your . Time for Guinsoo! Get a and a . Finish off your and start off with a sheen and get a . Get a then get a AND FINALLY GET A !!! Congratulations! you are done with your build!

Skill Sequence



This is the skill sequence i use. (Recommended) Since I don't normally go as a support with nid, i like to max out my spear/takedown. Heal/aoe (Area of effect) is important for team and your self so i max that second. The bushwack/pounce needs just one. If i max that, all it does is reduce the cdr! I like to get fed with nid. If you have never seen a fed nid, then your probably thinking, oh, it sucks. BUT NOOOOOPE. It's actually really op. Especially her spear.


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

Flash/Ignite.
I changed my clarity to a flash because i realized that if i get a sapphire crystal, i don't lose as much mana as before. Also, Flash can help me chase/runaway. ignite can greatly help team fights and it can greatly help your killing.

Summary

So, I hope that you had a great time with this build. Once again, Feel free to criticize so that i can improve my build. Check out my other builds too and have fun! I learned that nidalee can be a great support ORRRRR An amazing op character to play. She's exremely fun if you can get you spears to aim right and She has two different forms on her. I think she's the only champ who has that. Anyways, Have fun!

Have fun.
Good luck.
Hope you liked this.
Thank you for reading.
Thankyou for trying out this build! :DDDD
