Introduction

Welcome, this is my first guide and I found it works pretty well.

AD Nidalee is a fairly recent discovery among ranked games of all levels. She is a better choice overall because her play style is safer, and more aggressive which turns out better for the team.

Nidalee's Pros and Cons:

Pro -
Catch me if you can.
What does leaving lane for health mean?
+20g +20g +20g +20g +20g +20g


Con -
I would say CC'd easy, but it doesn't matter because of the armor and MR

Farming

Farming with Nidalee is key. She can finish her build very VERY quickly if played by the right hands. This build is quite expensive which means getting every last hit, kill, assist, and neutral minion you can is essential.

I tend to follow my own little made up rule:
If you aren't at 1k gold 6 minutes in, you're doing it wrong.

Masteries

Since Nidalee is naturally tanky I stray away from filling the defensive tree. I go with the offensive tree, making sure to pick up sustain and damage. The 9 in the defensive tree is to make you even harder to push out of lane.

Runes

The key to this build, is cooldown reduction. We reduce the cooldowns as much as the game allows which makes Nidalee much more capable of damaging and getting away.

Team Play

Nidalee's tankyness is required to win teamfights. She's perfect for it, too. 30 extra magic resistance and armor is a godly passive, and you need to make sure you take the center of that so that you absorb a lot of the abilities while being the most capable of your team to get out.

Ganking with Nidalee is also very useful. During the laning phase, it's easy to quickly push your lane to the tower and run down to mid for a quick gank using your pounce and passing through nearby bushes. Synchronizing this with your jungler can be very useful.

Getting Nidalee RED RUNE is very important. Ward the enemy jungle if your jungler needs red, because an early red rune will win Nidalee lane.
