With Nidalee I utilize a standard 9/0/21 getting Archaic Knowledge to get 15% magic penetration and getting important skills in the Utility tree to get increased laning power.

Ability Explanations

Ability Explanation
  • Prowl: This passive makes you extremely quick in bushes allowing you to have good lane control on top because of the top brushes.
  • Javelin Toss / Takedown: What people love and hate Nidalee for she can poke like no tomorrow steal kills, and oh did I mention it does a ton of damage.
  • Bushwhack / Pounce: Gives you map control I learn it at level one to help jungler's, and to also put a bunch of them on the top brush this also shreds a bunch of armor/mag resist so its good to put them near towers when your team is at a standoff with the enemy team.
  • Primal Surge / Swipe: Makes Nidalee unmovable in lane as she can just spam these all day.
  • Aspect Of The Cougar:Gives you very nice stats increase. And is also very good for team fights when your done poking with your spears and healing your team. Also really good to farm in lane in this mode and harass.

Items

Items
Starting Item
With the rune setup/masterty setup you can start working on your rod of ages right away.
Core Items
  • : This gives you a ton of health / mana / ap in my opinion one of the best AP items in the game.
  • : Gives you amazing AP + amazing passive.
  • : Converts AP into AD after using skills gives you more damage in team fights
  • Allows your spear to do that much more damage.
Optional Items

  • Gives a balanced stats between magic resist and armor but the true use of this item is giving you a second life every 5 minutes.
  • Helpful against teams with lots of CC (Crowd Control)

  • Gives you a nice HP boost as well and a very nice slow on your spears. But I personally dont use the item but I'm putting it up here for you guys
  • Great item against melee auto attackers.
