[Nidalee] - Tireless Spammer

creating helpful guides for the League of Legends community.
-Free traps placing
-And one of the main reasons: while laning, More mana = more hp to Nidalee (and his lane partner if you aren't solo).
How many times I needed to go back NOT because i was short of health / mana, but because I realize I got 3k gold in my pocket.
Clarity also allows your teammate to spam abilities as much as he wants (with the clarity mastery), which is always extremely satisfying for him and most of the times saves time by not having to recall. Your lane will therefore be extremely solid.
Moving to flash: No need to explain much flash but I do want to highlight its positioning purpose, mostly for low hp enemies that hide behind creeps hugging their turrets.
Flash behind/beside minions + Spear will probably let your enemy speachless.
-Later I go for magic pen boots, which make your spears way more intense. I don't like mercury treads because my objective in teamfights is not to be focused, but beat the **** out of unlucky champions, and finally burst low hp ones with cougar, if necessary end the persecution with an o-o-overkill with a spear (makes the kill more epic).
-I then build guinsoo's for its stacks on attack speed upon attacking, as you can spam abilities with cougar unlimitedly with jumps, which will keep the max stacks always present with a great att. speed buff. It improves both ap and ad, which make a solid hybrid build for Nid.
-Later Lich Bane, which empowers the next attack made after using an ability ==> Spears o.O (almost 1/4 hits because of its small cooldown).
-Rabadon's: If you choose to rip 3/4 hp from weak champions and heal 1/2 hp to team mates, then this item should help.
Trinity force: For an overall empowerment, including +Health, +AD, +AP, crits, etc.
Frozen heart: +Survivability, good for chasing in cougar, perfect for team fights.
(May vary depending on the enemy team: Eg: against an almost full ap team this won't work as well as with a balanced team)
Make sure to get the skillpoint in W at level 5, because its essential in cougar for chasing enemies down, clearing creep waves faster, or w/e, but you wanna get this as soon as you can cougar :).
