Introduction

Welcome to KatyBear's guide to Nidalee. I have been playing Nidalee for a long time and I enjoy her playstyle a lot. One of the most versatile champions in the game, Nidalee opts for creative players that like to have fun.

Early Game

Play safe and try to farm as much minions as you can. Before 6, Nidalee is weak in the top lane. Get into the brush whenever you can. Always have traps around the lane to prevent ganks. Avoid early game deaths.

Mid-Game

You now have Cougar form and you can deal great amount of damage and increased utility with Pounce. It is now time to play more aggression. However, if you feel that you still cannot win the lane with Cougar form, continue to play passive and farm items. Once you hit lv11, Nidalee becomes even more stronger. Sometimes, Nidalee's lv11 beats champions that she cannot beat pre-11. Play more and experience this yourself.

During Mid-Game you can also push the lane if you go 50/50 with your opponent. Once you push the lane, you can go roam around to mid lane or steal enemy buffs with enough ward coverage.

Lategame

Push lanes if your team is running a push strategy. Nidalee is one of the strongest pushers in the game. Remember to have enough ward coverage when pushing lanes independently.

Teamfighting:
When teamfighting, Nidalee can choose to be a peeler or an assassin depending on team composition.
If Nidalee must play a peeler, get items that help you peel, such as Iceborn Gauntlets and Ravenous Hydra to peel for your carries.
If Nidalee must play an assassin, get anti-carry items such as Frozen Heart (against AD) or Spirits Visage, Maw of Malmortius (against AP) paired with nice damage items such as Black Cleaver or Blood Thirster.
