General To

Hey, what's up guys? I'm General To and I've had my eyes on Nidalee from the start of my League of Legends career--back when DotA was still super huge, and if you guys have ever played DotA then you would know how challenging "Kael, The Invoker" is to play. After playing LoL for about 20 games, I looked through the roster of heroes reading everything about them--I was looking for a very, VERY challenging hero...and then I found her. Everything about her screamed "OP" and I just had to get my hands on her. If you guys knew me, you would know that I'm all about hybrid and experimental builds, and it was to my surprise that there was one TOTALLY underrated item (I happen to buy as a joke) that will never leave my arsenal...the Tiamat. Yes. I said it. "Tiamat" YES LAUGH IF YOU MUST! But there are explanations to my madness.

Is this build tournament/ranked material? Possibly.

Hybrid = Jack of All Trades, Master of None

Hybrids are my favorite type of characters to play. They aren't the strongest fighters, but they are always above average. The same goes with all other aspects: speed, healing, AP Dmg, HP, dodging, range, and sight/wards. Now tell me which character has all of these...? oh yeah. Nidalee--and surprisingly they all are pretty damn good (once again I emphasize they aren't great, but "pretty damn good"). There is one aspect Nidalee truly shines in and that is QUICK burst damage. This damage, however, is dependent on play style/build--but in the end, if your combos land, the damage will come out to be about the same.

Skill Sequence

So why is my chart all jacked up?...because skill building with Nidalee (regardless of any item build) requires the discerning eye for change/situations.

FAQ: "Why get heal first... Isn't spear way more useful?"
Most insightful players will always ask this question and the answer is simple. Starting off you will want to maximize your survivability. I could easily state that the best offense is a good defense, but really--look at "Primal Surge" more closely. It's not called "Primal Heal" for god sakes. The skill also grants you 20% increased attack speed.
