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.
Mainset of runes!
Other viable runes!
You should always pick Archaic Knowledge Since you shouldnt stack Magic penetration runes for her so 15% Magic penetration is one of the best picks in the masteries.
Awesome Early AP for the 5 first levels since you're gonna rush Sheen so pick this mostly of the time if you find it better than Doran's Ring
Always make this a pick if you choose Amplifying Tome
Nice Starting item because of the AP/HP/Mp5, is aswell an awesome first choice, But you will waste some time and cash on the Sheen
Other viable items
Here's where you list items you usually don't take, but are good in certain situations.
Q > E > Q > W > Q > R > Q > E > Q > E > R > E > E > W > W > R > W > W
Is my sequence for Nidalee But in some cases when my team have a jungler i pick...
W > Q > Q > E > Q > R > Q > E > Q > E > R > E > E > W > W > R > W > W
So you can easly throw them a trap to pull the Monster or just cover him with the traps!
And i always start max my Javelin Toss / Takedown, first because it is the best skill so far this early in the game so i will need to harras people in human form and finish people off in Cougar. And ofcourse after i have maxxed my Javelin toss /Takedown Javelin toss / Takedown i max Primal Surge / Swipe because it will incrase my healing and damage output! and last i max Bushwhack / Pounce because i find it the most unnessesary skill to get up asap.
