i see so many people saying to get a guinsoo's rage blade(on nidalee)... i cant help but ask WHY? it doesn't seem do be helpful to me. i myself do great without it at last hitting so the AD is pointless to me and the AS isn't helpful enough for me to spend my gold on that for a first item.

my build is unorthodox compared to others but for me it seems to work much better, i have tried hotshot's builds but they just frustrate me due to being forced to spam my w and i personally hate that.

my build is more of a nuker/healer/pusher with lots of durability.

Dorans ring>Needlessly large rod>Boots of speed>blasting wand>sorc boots>rabadon>guardian angel>Needlessly large rod>banshee's veil>zhonya's hourglass>lichbane.

yes this is long but with my friends whom of which i play with we tend to draw the game out for fun and kill farm a bit so its just what they like to do don't criticize that we kill farm because we know its noob/mean. but for my build it works against AD teams and AP teams so i tend to not change it much due to the lack of that being necessary.

what i am asking for is criticism on my build and also give me an explanation on why guinsoo's is good on nidalee since i beleive it is cost efficient but it just isnt helpful. I.E a 1 gold rabadons on an Olaf

It's not core, but it's a very good item when you want laning power on Nidalee.

It's good if you get it really early so you can really push turrets down (and you can boost your AP with it since it's extremely easy to keep 8 stacks on Nidalee). Additionally if you get it during laning phase and you aren't able to just "dominate" your lane - this allows you to do it. Your auto attacks will harass for large amounts and your cougar combo will hurt.

But if you can get rabadons before you go back / by the time you go back after getting boots or something, then skip it.

If your building Lich Bane as last item you are building her wrong. Lich Bane is what makes Nidalee hit like a truck in cougar form. Guinso's is core on Nid because it boosts her attack speed(which she needs as a cougar, unless you plan on switching to human to heal and then back to cougar, which isnt time efficient) and her AP. The good thing about rageblade is not the base, but the stacks. Nidalee is an exellent rageblade stacker since you can just use Aspect Of The Cougar or Bushwhack / Pounce in cougar form to keep your stacks at max.

Simply put, it gives Nidalee more damage and more AS to do that damage

Am I the only person who builds Nashor's Tooth instead of Guinsoo's?

If you're getting a Lichbane it seems like a better choice, just sayin'...
More CDR = More cougar spam = MORE LICHBANE PROCS

If you're not getting a Lich Bane on Nidalee, then you are clearly doing something wrong. I agree with the CDR, but I'd rather get a Frozen Heart than Nashor's for the cooldowns (or blue buff) and keep Guinsoo's. Thats just me.
