Intriguing introduction~

Introduction

// Hello there! I'm Adeori and this is my Nidalee guide - My 3rd guide on Mobafire! I take great pride in my guides. My other guides are for Evelynn and Fizz, and I'd love it if you could go and check them out!

// Anyway, without further ado, I present to you (Rhyming is unintentional!)... Nimble Nidalee! My indepth guide on the league's favourite feline friend! Nidalee has been one of my long time mains - I just adore her playstyle - She's very adaptable and mobile, leaping around with her Pounce. I suggest picking her up, as she's a bunch of fun to play!


// For those of you curious, who don't want to read on to save time, because you assume the guide will be useless, this is what the guide can offer :-
  • My personal playstyle for Nidalee
  • An indepth, detailed guide
  • Many choices to create your own build
  • 2 strong builds for Nidalee
  • An aesthetically pleasing guide
// This guide clearly has a lot to offer - However, only to those willing to learn. You won't understand Nidalee as well as someone who read the entire guide if you only glance at the cheatsheet - I recommend you read the entire guide, and absorb all the information you can. However, if you're in a rush, I recommend just glancing over the items section - As the runes, masteries and skill order will generally stay the same.


Now for a video from Amorid, of some amazing spearshots


Credits

// This is just a section for some special mentions - People who have helped me, besides of course, all the readers of this guide (Yes, you!), as you're the ones who make my guide useful, as it'd be useless if noone read it... (Captain obvious, much?). Anyway, here's a list of notable people :-

Which build?

// So, clearly, I've provided you with 2 builds, and they're both very different from each other - But why would you take tanky DPS over AP? Well, there's things that make them more useful in certain parts of the game than other parts - For example, tanky DPS is better endgame, however, AP is better early and mid game, and only falls off a bit late game. Tanky DPS is much easier in teamfights, so, if you're inexperienced with endgame AP Nidalee, you might want to take tanky DPS Nidalee. Also, tanky DPS Nidalee is arguably the better solo top - Whilst AP Nidalee is the better mid laner - However both builds can be played top or mid without large drawbacks.

__
AP build


__// The AP build is a solid build, the most common build up until recently. The sustainability is amazing, with a nicely scaling heal and a long distance nuke. Late game, after getting a bit of gold, you'll find yourself with tons of AP - Meaning that your javelin toss deals TONS OF DAMAGE!

PROS :
__+ Good sustain
__+ Ranged nuke
__+ High burst


CONS :
__- A bit squishy
__- Bad DPSing
SPACE
SPACE
Tanky DPS


__// The tanky DPS build is a very solid solo top build - With sustainability from heals, long ranged harassing and lasthitting - Something that most solo tops lack, and also an extremely strong level 6. Also, her DPSing and tankiness is a force to be reckoned with in teamfights.

PROS :
__+ Great DPS
__+ Very tanky
__+ Good endgame


CONS :
__- Bad burst
__- Expensive!

Silly summoner spells~

Summoner spells



Teleport : A great spell, giving a lot of mobility. It increases the time you're in lane. Also, if you plan on farming top all game, you can teleport onto wards into teamfights, being at the teamfight in seconds.

PROS :
--+ Good mobility
--+ Good laning


CONS :
--- High cooldown
SPACE

Flash : A great escape, giving a clutch spell. Sometimes, your pounce isn't good enough to escape the claws of death, so this is great! Also, flash pouncing onto someone can take them by surprise easily.

PROS :
--+ Great escape
--+ Surprise jump


CONS :
--- High cooldown
SPACE

Ghost : Not my personal favourite, even for escapes. You should probably hit the speedcap with boots, Aspect Of The Cougar and Prowl, however, some people prefer this over ghost, which may be your opinion.

PROS :
--+ Good escape
--+ Good chasing


CONS :
--- Can't walljump
