Nidalee has become one of my favorite champs lately but I can't seem to find a happy medium when it comes to which way to build her. I love playing AP Nid but she's terrible in team fights, only in picking people off. AD Nid doesn't do enough damage til mid game and support Nid isn't as viable as it used to be. I've even tried Jungle Nid just to see how that goes and it's better than you would think.

Just wanted to see how other people play or if i can get some help on what we'll call the "optimal" build to play her as.

(on a side note, this build is for ELO around 1350 and I want to get use her to get higher :D)
Wanna know what item is the bestest evar?! Here you go :) :)

AD nidalee wins a lot of lanes and is generally useful for killing very low HP opponents.

Otherwise I just don't consider Nidalee to be very good.

I always have more fun with AP Nid but AD always seems boring. I assume that means AD stays in kitty form most of them time then?

Depends on if you need to chase. Her base damage per level is very high. Adding Sheen makes her very dangerous in a solo lane. Poking is easy for her, but without AP it falls off midgame. I honestly still play AP nid, poke is godlike.
