[S.13] How to play Nilah

By JT Andrew
Hi Im JT1 Shizen I Tried To Make A Guide For Nilah Because I Liked Her Abilities And I Thought That Nilah Could Be A Top Laner Because Of Her Abilities Nilah Is My New Main She Was My Favorite Of The New ADC Releases. My Main ADCs Are Kai'Sa, Caitlyn And Other ADCs
+ [Passive] Joy Unending

Joy Unending
Range: 1000
When Nilah kills a minion, she and her nearest ally gain 50% of the experience they would have normally lost from sharing the kill.
Nilah gains 10% increased effectiveness from healing and 20% from shielding given to her by allied champions. If an ally heals or shields her, they will also gain the increased amount of the shield or heal themselves. If an ally shields or heals themself, Nilah will also gain that additional effect.

+ [Q] Formless Blade
Range: 600
Cooldown: 4
Cost: 30
Passive: Nilah gains 0-33% armor penetration, and her attacks against champions restore 0-15% of the damage dealt as health. Overhealing from this is converted into a shield for 6 seconds.
Active: Nilah cracks her whip-blade, dealing 5 / 10 / 15 / 20 / 25 (+0.9 / 1.0 / 1.1 / 1.2 / 1.3 per attack damage) physical damage, increased by her critical strike chance. If an enemy unit or structure is hit, Nilah gains 125 attack range and 10-60% attack speed, and her attacks hit in a cone as 100% AD physical damage for 4 seconds.

+ [W] Jubilant Veil

Cooldown: 26 / 25 / 24 / 23 / 22
Cost: 60 / 45 / 30 / 15 / 0
Nilah envelops herself in mist for 2.25 seconds, becoming ghosted, gaining 15 / 17.5 / 20 / 22.5 / 25% movement speed, dodging attacks, and reducing magic damage taken by 25%.
While active, touching allied champions envelops them in mist, granting the same benefits for 1.5 seconds.

+ [E] Slipstream

Range: 550
Cooldown: 0.5
Cost: 30
Nilah dashes through a unit, dealing 65 / 90 / 115 / 140 / 165 (+0.2 per attack damage) physical damage to any enemies she passes through.

+ [R] Apotheosis

Range: 450 / 1500
Cooldown: 110 / 95 / 80
Cost: 80
Nilah whirls her whip-blade, dealing 60 / 120 / 180 (+1.4 per bonus attack damage) physical damage over 1 second, then finishes with a burst of 125 / 225 / 325 (+1.2 per bonus attack damage) physical damage that also pulls nearby enemies toward her.
Nilah heals herself and nearby allies by 30-45% of her damage dealt to enemy champions' health, converting any overhealing into a shield for 6 seconds.
Precision Runes
Conqueror Is The Best Keystone For Nilah. Because Conqueror Has Lots Of Adaptive Damage And Healing And It's Good Q Formless Blade Because Nilah's Q Formless Blade Has Armor Penetration And Bonus Damage And Its Damage Will Increase When You Use Conqueror And Nilah's R Apotheosis Has Sustain Damage Its Damage And Sustain Will Increase Even More When You Use Conqueror So This Is Really The Best Keystone For Nilah.

Triumph It's Also Good Against Ignite User. When You Kill You Have Bonus 10% Health When You Use Triumph This Is Good For 1v1 Battle In The Top Lane To Survive To Minions Or To Ignite By The Enemy.

+ Legend: Alacrity
Get Legend: Alacrity For Bonus Attack Speed Per Takedown Because Nilah Needs Bonus Attack Speed For Her Q Formless Blade Because Her Q Formless Blade Has Bonus Range When You Use It.

+ Last Stand
Last Stand It's Also Good For Nilah. Because Nilah's Abilities Has A Lot Of Survivability And Sustain Damage So Last Stand Is Really Good For Nilah. But If Your Enemy Has A Lot Of Armor Stacker Get Cut Down To Easily To Kill Your Armor Stacker Opponent.
Secondary Resolve
+ Conditioning
Get Conditioning For Bonus Durability Because Nilah's Durability Is Low. Conditioning Is So Good For Nilah.

+ Second Wind
Second Wind It's Also Good Against Poke Because After Taking Damage Heals You For 10 Sec It's good for getting CS Because The Other Aggressive Players Will Harass To Lose The Other Opponent In The Laning Phase. So It's Good To Continue CS Because A Little Bonus Health Is Important In The Game.

+ Bone Plating
Bone Plating It's Also Good Against: Mordekaiser, Gangplank, Garen And Other Champions That If You Don't Dodge Their Abilities You Can Die And You Need To Avoid It. Bone Plating is also good when fighting in a 1v1 battle because the passive of Bone Plating makes you a little better. Because Of The Less Damage That's why Bone Plating is also good for Nilah

+ Revitalize
Revitalize It's Also Good For Nilah. Because Of Revitalize Your Heal And Shield Will Increase By 5% And The Best Of Revitalize Will Increase Your Heal And Shield By 10% When Your Health Is Below 40% It's good when the passive of Immortal Shieldbow is active because your heal and shield will increase even more because of Revitalize. And It's Also Good With Nilah's R Apotheosis Because This Her R Apotheosis Has Sustain Damage So Revitalize is also good for Nilah because Nilah has a lot of Sustain Damage.
Early Game
In the early game, Nilah is strong because of her Q Formless Blade, it's just right to harass because of the bonus range of Q Formless Blade.But don't always use Q Formless Blade because you can run out of mana. just use your Q Formless Blade if you need to harass or push a tower. when you are lvl 2 you lvl up your W Jubilant Veil when your opponent is on-hot characters ex: Warwick, Yasuo, Yone, Garen etc . When Your Enemy is Mordekaiser, Darius, Yasuo etc. lvlup your E Slipstream to dodge their abilities. the best in the early game when lv3 because this is the perfect fight because you can fight well. the important thing about your Defense Abilities is W Jubilant Veil especially when your opponent is Yasuo, Yone, Warwick, Volibear because they are melee characters . so when your opponent is this champion, don't be afraid to use W Jubilant Veil because if you use it immediately, your opponent can kill you. and consider important abilities is E Slipstream to dodge your opponent's abilities such as Mordekaiser, Darius.
Mid Game [Lvl6]
When you are lvl6 this is the good part of the game because you already have R Apotheosis because R Apotheosis by Nilah has a bonus heal. it's also good when your opponent plans to tower dive on top and your opponent's jungler because Your R has CC Apotheosis for 1.5 sec. but don't use it right away if you are not being attacked because they can kill you. and your W Jubilant Veil and R Apotheosis are also good in teamfight because your teammate near you will have a bonus shield and when you use your W Jubilant Veil. Your teammate will also have W Jubilant Veil when he approaches you or you approach your teammate. and when mid game you can quickly push a tower because of your Q Formless Blade because you can use Q Formless Blade on the tower. and even better than your Q Formless Blade has bonus attack speed and bonus range every time you use your Q Formless Blade
