Threats & Synergies
Worth a ban. Nidalee is all about getting early leads and bully the enemy jungler. This viking won't let you do that. His whole kit is anti-Nidalee. If he gets ahead, it only takes 1 q for him to get onto you and stay there until you get the gray screen.
Much the same as Olaf, except you can get lucky killing him early in his jungle. At around mid game, he will have gotten spirit visage and if you don't dodge his Q, there is no way you can 1v1 him. Get ahead early, and close out the game fast.
Skill matchup. The first to hit a Q wins. You can look to invading him early, and trying to get the jump on him. You are both relient on early game leads, so if you do get him behind, you have yourself a free game.
Pretty much the same as Lee Sin, except Elise got rappel to dodge your spear, and an annoying stun which can kill you late game. She also got a ton of burst, which our glasscannon Nidalee build don't like.
Zac is different from most tank junglers, since he often wont look to gank level 3, but instead do a full clear and get the second point in his E before starting to gank. Use this to your advantage. If he starts bot side, start top side and counterjungle him. This match up wont be a problem for Nidalee at all, but be careful. If you don't close out the game, Zac will outscale you hard.
Ohh, a big scary scarecrow! How cute! I love to play against Fiddlestick players. They are one of the most predictable jungle champions. They will often go for a wolf start, followed by a gromp + blue camp, where they will use their W to dmg both camps. They think they are super clever, but we know better! A well placed spear will completely destroy them, since they are already quite low from taking both camps at once. Fiddlesticks is useless when behind, and if you get ahead on him, you will most likely stay ahead the whole game.
