S4 Nidalee Support Guide
Your votes and comments encourage our guide authors to continue
creating helpful guides for the League of Legends community.
The S4 Changes to the Supprt role have really buffed the classic Nidalee support playstyle that we all know and love. You won't even get flamed for this as it is common knowledge that adcs are useless and squishy as hell while supports are overpowered as ****.
We choose Flash because it is an essential part of our combo (more about this later).
It also gives great utility as you can jump walls and ****. You can also use it to get out when you are caught, but you should not realy get caught because the range of your spears is ridicoulus.
|We choose Ignite because it allows us to lasthit champions early on. Later your Spears will be enough, but you wanna get fed all day long, so get it already :)|
|Mejai's Soulstealer||Rabadon's Deathcap||Deathfire Grasp|
|Mejai's Soulstealer gives you up to 180 ap. WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU NOT GET IT?||A ****load of ap, and this sweet passive that increases your high ap to an absurd amount. This item is stupidly op on Nidalee. It is obviously core.||Deathfire Grasp gives as much ap as Zhonya's Hourglass and increases your spear damage by 20%. Sadly, the range is quite short.|
|Zhonya's Hourglass||Lich Bane||Void Staff|
|This item gives the most ap after Mejai's Soulstealer and as much ap as Rabadon's Deathcap, not to mention the "out of jail card" active.||Lich Bane gives a decent amout of ap and allows you to push turrets really fast by throwing a spear and attacking the turret after that.||So the enemy team is ruining your damage by building tons of mr? Well, NOT ANYMORE. This item will allow you to deal 9000 damage to targets with 10x Force of Nature.|
The first step to instagib someone is to pop DFG on that person. After that, it is key to flash away from the target so that your spear damage is not capped because you are too close. Now you have to hit your spear on the target that is affected by the DFG debuff and it is most likely dead.
It does not matter if the adc farms, because he is useless anyway, so why would you stop him from taking gold that others could use better? When you zone the support, then their jungler will come to gank you, but you are the support, of course you can 1v1 the jungler.
Take as many creeps as possible because you need the gold. As isaid, the adc needs the gold as well, but you can use it better, so why giv it to him?
If the enemy tries to do baron, dragon or wraiths, try to steal them by throwing a spear when the monster is about to die. Tthrow annother spear to kill the one who tried to take the monster.
Anyways, both teams should be trying to poke each other down, a discipline where no other champion can match you. After hitting 5 spears, feel free to get some objectives and win the game as the enemy team is most likely aced.
