Hello everyone, mitchm1024 here! This is my first mobafire guide so be nice. My summoner name is mitchm1024 if you want to add me. Just wanted to share this guide so people stop playing AP nidalee because it is not as good as hybrid nidalee. Hope you like my guide everyone! I love Nidalee as a champion and have tried AD and AP, but I am convinced that hybrid is the new best in s3. Go middle or top with this build.
Pros / Cons
Runes are really up to you. I like to go magic resist per level and flat armor just because this is an "endgame build" and I find the mr per level to help out a bit more than flat mr. I go AD everywhere else but AP can also be used. If you are up against an early game burst champ then you can go with flat MR.
I love the 21/0/9 build. I always go into offense as nidalee unless I know my lane is a farm fest and I have been countered. In this case I sometimes go into defense.
Get big and get strong. Items make your champion powerful as Nidalee.
By levels of importance:
R>>>E>>>Q>>>W. However, start with W then get E then get Q before beginning the sequence.
Flash is pretty standard on almost every champion. Great for escaping or getting into a bush for the movement speed buff. In conjunction with Pounce flash can get you quite far.
Great for finishing off those pesky enemies. Not much to say. If you are confident in your spears you may not need this. Note: spears suck early game with this build so you should still take ignite.
Other "Viable" Choices:
Seen this work. Don't really think it's needed with Primal Surge
Not really needed with Prowl, but is decent I suppose
Probably most viable after ignite. This would be my second choice.
Love it. Works great to avoid ganks. Flash out of a bush over enemies and Pounce. You can run quite fast in this manner.
Not reliable for damage really, but great for getting sight and adding a bit of map control. Use to watch baron and dragon and buffs.
Great for movement and wall jumping and chasing. Use this to stack your tear so easily.
What can I say? Deal damage, get them low, and TAKE THEM DOWN.
Doesn't do much damage early game, but late in the build it will start to hurt. After throwing activate manamura right before the spear hits to deal maximum damage.
Heal yourself and attack fast. Great sustain.
Good damage and great for farming.
Aspect Of The Cougar
Three new spells. It is so overpowered right?
SO OVERPOWERED OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG SO OVERPOWERED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
Play ranked kill noobs. Go mid lane or top. Mid is a bit better, but top works with this build too.
