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.
Hey ppl. Today I have been trying to do something with Nidalee. After last patch many people, also me, dont know how to build her and how the patch affects to our way to play Nida. Sorry for my bad english, i will try to do the best but I dont speak english often.
For rune setup i will take:
x9, this allows with the armor penetration points in masteries to harass early game with your autoattacks and do some extra damage when we are in human form after Primal Surge. They increases a lot damage of takedown cause it's physical damage. In that build as u can see i take sorcerer's and haunting guise. Thouse items give me the magic penetration that i lose with that runes.
x9, with catalyst and thouse ones we can use more javelin than the usual builds, since that build focuses on max javelin thats a great poke almost with no blue buff.
x9,nothing to say just tipical caster runes to increase our ap.
x3, same than glyphs. Early ap burst.
I am trying this masteries cause I have played Nidalee a lot rushing guinsoo with arm pen runes. That was great since last patch. Now im trying to do some balanced hybrid with lot of damage from javelin and cougar form. Also I go the other points in the utility tree to mana regen, mobility, leveling fast and buff duration.
To starting items I take thecause it have all i need and cause I take teleport if i get too much harass i can go and take some health pots and return with teleport. Other starting item choice could beand some healh/mana potions cause u dont max heal then you will need potions if you get harassed.
Then I take theand if I am farming well theand next our. Now we have more magic pen, some ap and some extra health points that let us go in cougar form and be more agresive.
Now I rush ap and go forand then for. If you think that you need movility level 2 boots early take it. I think that i dont need it cause in cougar form we have a boost of our speed.
Now we goand our core is complete.
Late game items:
I get that starting with(some extra hp points are great) cause it brings me hp, ap and the slow. That slow save your life and get kills. Since your traps works with the pasive and your javelin too you can run in cougar change form heal you put a trap in the way of the enemy and send him a javelin. Thats some damage while u scapes, its great. And all spells of cougar works with rylai's too. Then if you go over some enemy is easy to get the kill cause he cannot be able to run out.
Moooore damage in cougar form and human when u are healing you with autoattack.
And the last item is for survivality. We make it with our catalyst cause i think is better use than a RoA but if you want take RoA of course.
Javelin Toss ftw!
I have seen that since I max javelin cause heal is not that great it was i can play more agressive also in lower levels. I dont just try to get the more range on javelin, just hit. The damage output will be great near our enemy too and we add it to cougar damage to destroy enemies. It's great and funny ^^
Cause that's a build in training i will refresh it properly. I hope you enjoy playing my nidalee build. ;)
