as I reached my this years ELO goal I will not play rankeds anymore (for now) thats why I decided to learn new champs. Lately I've seen in the pro streams that nidalee is OP!!!!!!!!!!111oenoeneone
but no, i think she is viable in ranked games :P

just wasnt paying attention how hotshot has built her against riven... i know that he had both an ap and an ad build/guide here on mobafire

still i dont want to follow blindly a pro and hear more opinions, ofc i will try both out, but I really am interested in what you say. as i am aiming for nidalee solo top not support i was thinking about buuilding her like a regular ad offtank (warmog+atmas, triforce...)

thanks

To my knowledge the mixed magic pen / armor pen runes are all the rage.
They allow for a lot of flexibility / damage / counter building

From there you just build what your team needs

To be honest, the most viable build path for Nidalee is offtank Nid. It's just baws. OH HAI HERE'S MY Q WITH A TRINITY FORCE PROC. HAVE FUN WITH THAT.


Thanks to The Nameless Bard and Vavena for the sigs!

AD Nidalee, full AD seems to be making an uprise.

AD or offtank. Both strong.
AP is good, but not quite as good as the others.

It depends on what playstyle you want/need.

If you need a general off-tank, AD offtank nidalee generally does best in that role.

If you need a poke damage monster, play AP nidalee. She definitely still has her place, but it's not a role of pure off-tank like AD nidalee is.

Well it seems there's a confusion here.

Pure AD glass cannon as hell does REAL damage. It's not poke it's massive burst.

AP is good, but not the best choice. Her cougar form is really strong, and going AP will force you to be more time as human than cougar. Her lance can be easily dodged, and there goes your only damage.

AD is a nice choice, I wanted to know if hybrid works

Elementz placed her on top of T1 with full AD, only ever seen a full AD Nid once. I'm afraid she's too squishy when I play her. :<
