Hey guys it's Vignus and I have finally created this wonderful guide for Nidalee. I like to play Nidalee AP Solo Top. Nidalee is one of those super annoying champions that has sustain and strong poke. She can one hit carries (if they aren't building MR) and can change team fights. If you are looking for one of those guides that are nice and short, I suggest you find another because this one is looooooooong and will be updated frequently. Thanks and I appreciate votes/comments.
