Summoner Spells Back to Top

Standard Jungler's Summoner Spells

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

FEROCITY 

Fury because att. speed is perfect for a fast early clear: you have to make the most of your early game. Faster you are, more chance you have!
Feast help you to sustain early damage.
Vampirism ofc and bounty because nida 0 cc.


RESOLVE

Recovery: better, you are not a tank.
Explorer: the speed in brush is insane to catch or escape.
Runic Armor: boost heals on yourself! Veteran's Scars is good too.
Perseverance or Insight? it's up to you. I usually play with insight. (more flash-jump)
Lasts are must choose :)

I pref start Q->E than W->Q because i use a lot autoattacks, heals keeps you up on life so you don't have to use pots.

If you plan to level 2 counterjungle go W->Q (or Q->W) (it's risky, depends on the enemy team, if you die you will lose your early game power totally.)

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    START
    If you go back, try to build this even before complete your jungle item

Core Items

    I build always Skirmisher. 20% damage reduction for 4 seconds is really useful. Plus the true damage.
    Tracker if you are a lot of premades (4-5) and need more vision
    Stalker is the best for early ganks: slows so you can hit spears easly. Take this if you are new to nida
    Runic Echoes of course.
    Lich bane. This is the key to climb alone and carry everything. Perfect to delete towers also. It gives cd reduction. Get this if you are confident to easy carry and you can snowball hard.
    Core Items. You have to choose between these. Get Abyssal if they are a lot Magic dealers (or just vs a fed Le Blanc). Rylai gives you health and slows to catch for jump. Zhonya now gives cdr so is pretty good as second item too
    I really love this build overall because is super flexible. Here you can see. Build what you need. (mr? armor? speed? magic pen?)
    Last items. Get void staff 80% of the times, spirit to have more mr and boosts heals on you

Situational Items

    Final build example
    i don't like this item. after 6.9 even less

This new type of build is really flexible and fits perfectly with the meta, take advantage of that.

Try to counterjungle early, take his buffs and he will be just a free kill (or just an AFK..)

VS

Cho'Gath

Easy

VS

Diana

Hard

She is an hard counter. Never fight 1v1, just hit spears. Carefull

VS

Dr. Mundo

Medium

OP but slow, try to avoid 1v1

VS

Elise

Medium

This is a skill matchup, try to countergank her

VS

Evelynn

Easy

Easy/Medium, she can't really kill you, try to countergank and she will be a free kill

VS

Fiddlesticks

Hard

The hardest counter to me. Full of CC and Sustain. You can't stop his drain. Try to get him really early on or just farm and gank

VS

Fizz

Hard

His kit counter yours, never 1v1 him. Farm-Gank

VS

Gragas

Medium

Strong champion overall. You can't kill him that easy, so just fast farm and gank as much as possible

VS

Hecarim

Medium

Strong damage and sustain, try to countergank him but carefull

VS

Jarvan IV

Medium

Your kit counters him, also he got 0 sustain. Carefull of his combo-burst and you should be fine

VS

Jax

Easy

VS

Kha'Zix

Medium

Pretty squishy, snowball matchup

VS

Lee Sin

Nidalee

Easy

If you are reading this, you are stronger for sure ;)

VS

Nocturne

Medium

Medium/Hard, snowball-skill matchup, gank farm gank, poke him hard before all-in

VS

Nunu

Easy

I think this is an easy matchup. Nunu is stronger in a team than in soloQ. Worry only for nunu mains, always keep dragon warded

VS

Olaf

Hard

Strong duelist, never try an 1v1 without hard poke him before, try to counterjungle

VS

Pantheon

Hard

One of your best counters. Early he is a lot stronger, he falls off later on. Try to snowball and he will be useless

VS

Poppy

Medium

pOPpy. Her poppyparagonofdemacia.png stops your jumps. -.-'

VS

Rammus

Hard

He cannot 1v1 but if he gets you, others his teammates can kill you pretty easly. Carefull

VS

Rek'Sai

Medium

Skill-Snowball matchup. Try to countergank him

VS

Rengar

To me rengar is just easy. If you hit a spear, you can burst him down, snowball matchup

Care because some smarty kitty will counterjungle early.

VS

Riven

Hard

Flash+W+AA+ULT dead kitty

VS

Sejuani

Medium

A tank that is more usefull in teamfights. Try to snowball. Gank Farm Gank

VS

Shaco

Hard

Shaco is always an hard matchup. Care he can one shot you

VS

Shyvana

Medium

Gank a lot on this matchup. Don't fight shyvana 1v1, only if you are sure to get the kill

VS

Skarner

Hard

At level 6 he is a lot stronger. Be carefull, try to countergank

VS

Trundle

Medium

VS

Twitch

Easy

VS

Udyr

Easy

Skill matchup, he can't kill you, countergank him, poke

VS

Vi

Hard

Strong champion overall, she can combo-kill you pretty easly if she gets ahead. Be carefull

VS

Volibear

Easy

Your kit counters him, try to snowball hard! Don't 1v1 him if he has passive or he isn't low health because volibearw.png can hurts so much. You are generally faster in clearing jungle camps, so try to steal his buffs and run out using your jump-over-wall ability :P Remember that moving through brush increase your mov speed

VS

Warwick

Easy

Gank lanes early and try to steal his jungle camps! pre 6 warwick cannot really do much to help laners from you, so if you steal his camps he will get less exp... that means more time he'll be "useless" and more time for you to snowball your lanes! do not 1v1 him when he is full health due to his sustain kit

VS

Xin Zhao

Hard

His kit counters yours. Snowball matchup, try to countergank but carefull

VS

Zac

Medium

a bit OP but in 1v1 you usually win

Overview, Tips, Pros-Cons, Scores Back to Top

UPDATED 6.9

Hi guys, im RioDan a diamond elo player. Sorry for bad english, i gave my best to write this guide. I hope you enjoy it :)  


My stream http://www.twitch.tv/xriodan (follow please, soon i'll start to stream a lot!)



PRO
High mobility
Poke
Strong Heal for you and your teammates, with attack speed boost for your ADC
Break down towers easy with LICH BANE and the changement done in 6.9
Vision with your W
High burst if you hit a spear
Really Fast jungle's camps clear
Really High counterjungle potential

CONS
No CC
Squishy (well a bit less with the new build)
You have to hit good spears and play smart
Hard to master



IMPORTANT TIP: when you start attacking the first camp do this combo: SMITE->AA->SPEAR->AA->(at this point fast R so you will get a reset on autoattack)->AA->Empowered Takedown->AA.
Remember always that you will get an autoattack reset whenever you R.


After 6.6 you don't get an autoattack reset whenever you JUMP


Clearing Ways (Blu and Red side) at start (REMEMBER: SMITING BLU GIVES MANA - SMITING RED GIVES HEALTH)
ffff.jpg

Why getting wolf before your second buff? Because after them you will get level 3 so you can fight better if the enemy jungler decide to counterjungle you at your second buff. This is really important for this guide because here we will start Q->E and without jump (W) is really hard to fight.



Here is an example of clearing (RED SIDE) (PRE 6.6 BUT YOU CAN STILL USE THIS)


(BLU SIDE) (PRE 6.6 BUT YOU CAN STILL USE THIS)





After clearing your camps, check mid and top. 

If there are no gank possibilities go straight in the enemy jungle as fast as you can. Put a ward in the enemy red buff bush or in front of enemy blu buff (depends on what side you are):

If he's doing it try to steal and/or kill enemy jungler, you got much time till other enemies come to help, or just they will never come (as usual). 

If he's not here but the buff is up, you can choose to wait him or just kill his buff fast.
Most champions got 0 sustain on jungle so try to early kill them if they are low. Your snowball power is great 

IMPORTANT!!!!!!:
If you steal a buff keep stealing this buff through the game. You have the timer of respawn and you can clear camp
in about 4 seconds (1 if fed :D )



Farm camps whenever you can ALWAYS. Nida is really fast on farming, you can choose to farm camps even if you are running in the enemy jungle. 
Farming is really important, always plan your farm route before a move/gank. Do that and you will be ahead by gold and exp all game long.

Gank if enemies push, or try to sit in side lanes bushes waiting for a good engage. (Do not sit for long because farming up is really important, usually i have nearly the same farm of laners in mid-late game with ofc a lot more golds)
Furthermore, you should gank only if there is a real kill chance, or you have to help your mates to survive or push. To be really effective, you should focus your ganks on lanes that actual have CC to lock down your enemies and allow you to throw a perfect spear in enemy face. This will increase pretty much the chances of a kill.

Examples
Your top is a Mundo that is losing to a Trundle. If you are not really (REALLY) fed you shouldn't try to gank that lane, will be just a waste of time and health because Mundo cannot really help you to get that Trundle (and you might as well die). 
Your mid is Lux against a Twisted Fate. Lux can bind TF pretty easily so you can spear him and go for a kill (or flash).
Well anyway those are just general examples, do not take them to the letter!

Try to track enemy jungler whenever you can with bushwhacks/wards. This will help you to make plays in their jungle like steal camps or killing their jungler.


REMEMBER: Nida gains movement speed boost in bushes. Use this at your advantage when you are running or chasing.



When you are smiting dragon or baron be sure to do an Empowered Takedown at the same time (try to time it perfectly because takedown has a delay of some milliseconds when you cast) to ensure the kill.



Always poke on teamfight, never go in without reason, try to heal your carries or your tanks. When your team is takin towers always heal the ADC due to attack speed boost.



(YOUR GOAL WITH THE LICH BANE BUILD IS TO HIT SQUISHIES WITH A MED-LONG RANGE SPEAR -> R -> GET IN RANGE TO EMPOWERED JUMP (USE FLASH IF YOU ARE FAR TO GET JUMP RANGE AND IF YOU HAVE TO BE FAST) -> JUMP (in the same time you land SMITE him with skirmisher or stalker) AND E-Q AS FAST AS YOU CAN. AT THIS POINT, IF HE IS STILL ALIVE (i don't think...) JUMP AGAIN UPON HIM (after the reset) -> TRANSFORM IN HUMAN AGAIN -> USE E(heal) UPON YOU (i usually use the key bind alt+E to be faster) AND SPAM SOME AA (this will cause a second lich bane proc that will kill your prey). THEN RUN AWAY WITH JUMPS.)

ps: if he is still alive after the second lich bane proc, spear him again and do the same combo (even if you miss the spear, because you are close to him at this point)

Do this ONLY when you are sure that you can kill your target and get away. You can do this also as a kite move, if you can run away safely after.


With the lich bane you can also try to split push! Trust me it is insane your tower clear speed with the changement in 6.9.



TRICKS: 

If you are chasing someone or escaping, remember that killing a unit will reduce pounce cooldown to 1.5sec, so try to smite a minion or execute him with takedown to reset jump. 

Throws spears from areas not visible by enemies, these are much more harder to avoid.




This guide is always a work in progress :)
