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.
Nidalee Rawr Combo!
Starting by here, For those who still didn't get it, Thats the FULL sequence of the combo:
(Start on human form)
Q E R W E Q R (Repeat)
Kinda easy, but you need to do it faster and faster, as you'll get more and more cooldown reduction.
IMPORTANT: In the beast form ALWAYS do everything before landing Q, This skill increases damage if the target is with lower HP, It can be a very good friend of "Executioner" skill in mastery tree. Use it wisely
Lee is very good at non-started Team fights, Where she can make most of the guys start with Mid HP's or better, make them run instead of fighting, specially if you're with the Blue buff, to spam the spears.
Lee Can execute almost everything in her way, but remember, BE FAST, this champion can suck a lot if you're not fast enough, but believe me, If you're really fast, not only in combos, but in anything, and training a good Aim to show your spears... I can easly say, THIS is an OP Champion.
Pros / Cons
-Really good at Soloing, specially in brushes
-High Burst Dmg
-Very good at running
-Kinda sucks to get 3 guys at the same time
Begin with Boots and potions specially if you're doing Top/Bot, Because you can do very heavy Dmg inside the brushes with a turbo basic attack. Following then like there's no tomorrow.
Then finish the Cooldown reduction boots, because at lv6 you'll need to change forms very quickly to combo all your skills...
Guinsoo Blade, Well, no comments by here, the faster you take this, the faster you eat some heads.
Lich bane to help in the combo, Rabbadon for some general help, specially spearing some lost meat, spear will have some HEAVY damage over here.
Then finally finishing the Nashor, to get some extra attack speed for basic attacks, some AP and for sure, Cooldown reduction again =)
Finally, the AD Spell Vamp Hextech Gunblade. Well in my opinion every and every champion can do fine with some Spell vamp / Hp Steal, So, Whats better than this ?
Ok Ok If you're reading this you're probably mad looking for WHY starting with E and now with the Q, Well its simple. If you're beginning with boots and you're in the brush, you'll get some very high speed at the beginning of the game. The only thing you must do is wait for some first hit on you, for not wasting the heal of E, then activing it, If you do it right you can destroy any guy, Also, If needed you can simply combo Exaust and again, THIS GUY WILL DIE.
Then equip most of the points in the Spear, but dont forget to get W at level 5, So you can combo the little jump of the Transformation, After that just forget W and boost Q then E... Get W only at the endgame ^^
Use It the way you like it ! Masteries is what will get you some boost on what YOU like to do, YOUR gameplay, So I'll not show up anything, I only put on Attack tree because I love it ;) Build yours
Creeping / Jungling
Creeping is very easy with the transformation, and whenever is possible, activing the speed boost of E. No big things, everybody knows how to creep with Lee
Jungling is VERY hard at level 1-5 but starting by lv6 it will be very very veeeeeery easy! Use Transformation skills than return heal and use Q then back to R and repeat it like 2 times.
Nidalee really needs some kind of combo lane, because of her lack of Slow/Stun/Freeze or anything, she can do a heavy damage but the target can easily run specially flashing, so at early she'll need a good partner in her lane.
Not really a good team fighter, still doing the same work, she is very good at ganking, because of her brutal damage against 1-2 guys
I really find it easy to execute in endgame, but in team fights I guess Lee is VERY good at spearing people, this will help lots your team, specially if you hit some AD carry, I recommend some heavy defense team, because Lee is not very brutal while being massaged by 5 guys
