So enjoy .
As improbable as it was for a child to survive in the inhospitable jungle by herself, she did just that. Her youthful innocence and a fortunate naivete caused her to appeal to the beasts of that place and she was taken in by a family of cougars and raised as one of their own. She grew and somehow absorbed the raw magic of the dense wilds, evolving beyond both her human physiology and her feline affectation. On one pivotal day in her life, standing over the torn remnants of a Noxian squad of woodcutters, Nidalee chose to rejoin the so-called civilized world, to fight in the League of Legends so as to protect the vast woods from both Demacia and Noxus.
Nidalee was taught to fight by her feline family, battling viciously with tooth and nail. Something in her feline ways may draw you to her, but remember that she is no pussycat.
Human: Nidalee tosses her javelin, dealing 55/95/140/185/230 (+0.65) magic damage on impact (deals up to 250% damage the farther away the target is).
Cougar: Nidalee's next attack deals additional damage based on how low her opponent's life is.
Bushwhack / Pounce - In human form, Nidalee lays a damaging trap for unwary opponents that, when sprung, reveals the target and reduces their armor and magic resistance for 12 seconds. As a cougar, she pounces forward, dealing a small amount of damage when she lands. Pounce is not affected by cooldown reduction.
Human: Nidalee lays a trap that deals 80/125/170/215/260 (+0.4) magic damage over 2 seconds, reveals the target, and reduces their armor and magic resistance by 20/25/30/35/40% for 12 seconds. Traps last for 4 minutes.
Cougar: Nidalee lunges forward, dealing damage to surrounding enemies.
Primal Surge / Swipe - In human form, Nidalee channels the spirit of the cougar to heal her allies and imbue them with attack speed for a short duration. As a cougar, she rapidly claws enemies in front of her.
Human: Nidalee heals an allied champion for 50/85/120/155/190 (+0.7) and grants them a 20/30/40/50/60% attack speed for 7 seconds.
Cougar: Nidelee claws at enemies in front of her.
Aspect Of The Cougar - Nidalee transforms herself into a cougar, gaining new abilities and increased movement speed in the process.
Human: Nidalee transforms into a vicious cougar, gaining 10/20/30 Armor and Magic Resist, 20 Movement Speed, and her basic abilities become Takedown, Pounce, and Swipe.
Cougar: Nidalee transforms back into human form.
Prowl - Moving through brush increases Nidalee's movement speed by 15%, which persists for 2 seconds when leaving brush.
In team fights start by harassing with your Javelin Toss, and then switch to cougar form to chase down anyone who flees.
Cougar abilities have no cost associated with them, allowing you to maintain a full stack of Guinsoo's Rageblade for extended periods of time.
Seal: Greater Seal of Armor for more Armor and Stamina.
Glyph: Greater Glyph of Magic Resist for more MagicResist and Stamina.
Quintessences: Greater Quintessence of Ability Power for more Abillity Power at Level 1.
Sorcerer's Shoes - More Magic Penetration = more Damage with Abilities .
Ninja Tabi - If Enemy Team is full of AD Carrys like Vayne..
Ionian Boots of Lucidity - More CooldownReduction.
Boots of Swiftness - It is good on every Champ in my opinion.
