[12.2] Masters Nidalee Guide (In Depth) - LEARN FROM THE GRE

By JuvX
Hello! My name is JuvX I am a Season 9 Grandmasters and a Season 10 Masters Jungle Main. I have previously mained Lee Sin, Rengar, Evelynn and now I am currently playing Nidalee due to her high overall skillcap & fun. This guide i'm going to be explaining how to dominate with Nidalee to my best capabilities. Cheers to Cougars :)
Pros / Cons


    Incredible early and mid game
    Can Hypercarry a game
    Phenomonal duelist and counterjungler
    Great objective taker and ganker
    Safe clear
    Fast Clear


    Difficult to spear when you are starting.
    If you get behind, you are really weak.
    Can get counter jungled easily.
    Little bit squishy

Night Harvester

The new Night Harvester brings potential because it synergizes well with Nidalee Burst. Also allows for bonus movement speed which is beneficial for escaping and or ganking.

Hextech Rocketbelt

The updated Hextech Rocketbelt brings potential because it allows for escape or gap close when youre unable to quickly use Cougar form W. I like this item when I'm looking to quickly 1 shot an enemy champion.

Lich bane

Lich Bane is crucial on Nidalee due to her ability to trigger the passive due to the constant use of abilities. This will allow for various potential split pushes, extra dps in teamfights.

Zhonya's Hourglass

Zhonya's Hourglass is crucial for Nidalee due to it allows for various play making, needed timer for cooldowns, etc.
Electrocute Vs Dark Harvest

Electrocute is very useful for skirmishing early game. When knowing you need to create an early lead for your team to have an advantage. Great for skuttle crab contests. The only problem with Electrocute is that the usefulness diminishes late game but thats why people go.

Dark Harvest? Why not Electrocute?
Well.. For Nidalee both runes can work extremely well. Dark Harvest has a larger impact into the late game due to the ability to proc the rune on Javelin Toss and having it reset with kills.

Electrocute is probably going to be your starter rune but as you transition into a Nidalee pro you'll be able to see why Dark Harvest pulls ahead even after its numerous nerfs.
Jungle Pathing (Snowball)
Due to Pathing being very situational. I am going to show you the most optimal pathing to snowball the game. If you start the game on Blue side (Opposite if you're on Red side). I will be clearing my Red buff . Going to Wraiths , Blue Buff , Gromp . That will allow you to be level 3 at around 2:35 if properly done. (ONLY IF YOU WIN LEVEL 3.)
Jungle Pathing (Full Clear)
When all lanes are ungankable, feel free to full clear for early buy. Your very strong first buy after purchasing.
If you have any questions, If i'm ever streaming dont be shy! Come ask questions :).
