Introduction

This is my guide on how to play Nidalee. This is not how you have to play her. I thought I would share how I play her.

You don't have to do everything like I do. It depends on your team-composition and of course your enemies as well.


Guide Top

Spells Usage

Try to hit as much Javelin Tosses as possible and poke the enemy down. This allows your carry to farm safer.

You should place your Bushwhack in bushes. This allows you to back off if the enemy jungler tries to gank you. The traps are perfect in combination with wards. These will give you more vision which is very important.

Pounce is nice to chase and also to evade.

I put 9 points into defense. The three points on Hardiness are good if the enemy ad carry tries to harass you.
Veteran's Scars for even more survivability.

The rest goes into the utility. I take Greed and Wealth because a supporter does not farm. You need this extra income for wards and your items.
Pickpocket allows you to get more gold easily. Just hit the enemy support with an autoattack which is pretty easy because you are ranged.


Guide Top

Runes

Greater Quintessence of Gold runes are great for more income. I don't like the yellow Greater Seal of Gold because they don't really give much gold over time.

Instead I take Greater Mark of Armor and Greater Seal of Armor for more survivability.

For the same reason I take Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist. I take scaling because these will give me more lategame. The laneing is against an ad carry which means I don't need magic resistance at the beginning.


Guide Top

Farming

You don't have to farm. Just take last-hits when your carry is back at base and try to freeze your lane.

If your the only one on the lane try to push as hard as you can. The enemy ad carry will lose cs cause their tower will kill them before they are back in lane. Don't do it if you are not sure that you can push fast enough.


Guide Top

Early Game

If your teams chooses not to invade then go to your lane and place your Bushwhacks.
Heal your carry and poke the enemies.

Don't forget to ward.
