Evelynn Even though she can counter jungle quite easily her stealth is near useless if you put traps down in the jungle entrances and bushes, also giving your team knowledge about her position.

Introduction

Hello

My name is LeeNidaHD and im a platinum nidalee one trick.
I've been maining nidalee since before her rework and must say i just never grow tired of her, there are so many small tricks you can do and she really is one of the strongest junglers if played right.

This is my first guide ever, so sorry for the little details and poor quality, if you have any input on things i should add please let me know

Spells

Nidalee's passive, Prown, applies a mark on her enemies whenever she hits a spear or they step on a trap. this passive enhances her jump range to the double and halves the cooldown.
It also gives her bonus movement speed in brushes, allowing for some great escapes and chases.

Nidalee's spear is one of the strongest single target spells in the game and to make it even better, its up every 6 seconds. Landing one on a squishy target feels so satisfying, even if you hit a tank it deals a great chunk of damage.

Nidalee's traps are great for giving vision or zoning out and enemy carry from that spot, if they stay you have a free mark and can jump in their face and kill them. It can also be used to spot intruders in your jungle by placing them at the entrances.

Nidalee has a lovely heal, it heals more on target with low HP and gives an attack speed bonus, great for saving your carry AND increase their damage output.

Nidalee's ultimate is aspect of the cougar, you have it from level one and it changes her abilities to "Takedown" "Pounce" and "Swipe"

Takedown enhances her next auto attack dealing massive damage, it's damage is increased by 40% if the enemy is marked by Prowl. It's also an auto attack reset.

Pounce is a great mobility tool, allowing you to outrun most enemies and its range is double and CD halved if you jump to an enemy marked with Prowl.

Swipe is great for clearing waves, camps and giving that extra damage on enemies.

Creeping / Jungling

When jungle i usually take this route:

Blue buff
Grump
Wolves
Raptors
Red buff
Krugs
Scuttle crab

However this route is very hard if you dont know how to efficiently use her spells, also raptors does way more damage than you'd think, but it gives you a huge amount of gold for your first back and you still are able to gank afterwards if done succesfully.

The easiest route would be
Blue buff
Grump
Red buff
krugs
Scuttle


While jungling its VERY important to keep your map awareness, if theres a low health target nearby or you have a positility to get an objective then rush to get it, example could be that your bot lane gets a double and you see the enemy jungler at top, then rotate to the drake, but make sure your team is up for it.

When clearing the camps, upon running against them try to land a spear on the big on, then throw a trap in front of it and jump on it, the trap will activate and you can jump again, then go to human and throw a spear at it and go to cougar and jump once again, at that time your takedown will be up again and that mostly does it for camps early game

Team Work

Nidalee is NOT a teamfighter.
Tho, before the fight begins she can bring them low enough to either back off or if the fight begins its a certain win.
You'd want to stay in the back line healing priority targets, poking and trying to land a spear on one of their carries and then jump in and finish the job.

Unique Skills

Nidalee can force enemies back from a long range and pick of targets while still staying safe in the back line, this makes her super strong.

Summary

Nidalee is such a strong champion, she can be played in all matchup's however it very difficult if you get behind.

If you are bad at landing skill shots then dont worry too much, it has a 6 seconds cooldown so with a few games on her you quickly master skillshots.

If you play her well and strive to finish the games early, you will quickly see yourself fly through the ladder.

She is difficult to play though so try her out in some normal games before bringing her to ranked.
