Summoner Spells Back to Top

No words needed here.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

FEROCITY TREE
 Fury > Sorcery since you will get more damage off by attacking 1 time than just by 2 % increased ability damage.
  Feast > Fresh Blood and Expose Weakness since Fresh Blood only works on champions and Expose Weakness is situational.
Natural Talent > Vampirism since you scale well with both AD and AP and you have a built-in heal.
Don't take Battle Trance. You can take both Bounty Hunter and Double Edged Sword, but i take Double Edged Sword just because you get the raw 5 % Damage from the start.

CUNNING TREE
 Savagery > Wanderer. You don't get to use Wanderer a lot in the game so Savagery is better.
You can't use Secret Stash so just take Assassin or Runic Affinity. Doesn't really matter.
Merciless > Meditation. Merciless increases your damage by a significant amount since your Melee form Q does more damage the lower your targets are.
Greenfather's Gift helps can be activated in the jungle and gives you a little bit more damage. Dangerous Game can be useful sometimes but overall GF's Gift is better.
Intelligence > Precision. The flat 5 % Cooldown Reduction that you get from this mastery really does help in the early game so take this over Precision.

RESOLVE TREE
 Nothing useful on Nidalee here.

     KEYSTONES
 Choose between Thunderlord's Decree or Stormraider's Degree. IMO Thunderlord's  is better.

Q-E Start is better than W-Q start this season since there are no small creeps near the Buffs anymore. You take E level 2 making your clear more faster and more healthier.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

Core Items

Situational Items

Start with 1039.png since you get more use of it than 1041.png2031.png is better than 3 2003.pngon junglers.


Change your 3340.png to 3364.png at Level 9.

After your first back get the Red Smite and an 1052.png if you have the gold. If not just get the Red Smite.

Red Smite is better than the other ones just because it is broken right now. 

You should get the Green Smite only if you're behind and are playing for vision or in competitive to track their 
jungler.

3027.png may delay your mid game spike but is essential for the late game. Some people go 3116.png but i would advise against it after the nerfs.

3089.png will increase your damage by a lot. I know its a late game item but you will have a lot of AP just by buying this which means a lot more damage.

Get 3001.png or 3157.png if you are against a fed enemy depending on the type of damage they do or if their team is heavily AD or AP focused.

3135.png is needed to efficiently use all of that AP by 3089.png that you get. Rush this as a 3rd item if they build a lot of magic resist.

Take3158.png if you are running Flat Cooldown or Flat AP glyphs. Take 3020.png if you are running Scaling Cooldown Glyphs.

3100.png increases your burst late game. A tip on how to use this in the Advanced Mechanics section.

Take 3143.png3742.png3065.png if you're lacking front line and want to survive longer. 3026.png is fine too.

Intro Back to Top

This is an advanced guide to Nidalee's kit and mechanics. I have in mind that the reader has basic jungle knowledge and wants to get better at the champion. 

Pros and Cons Back to Top

 Pros
 Great Early damage
          -Great Mobility
          Good sieging potential
          Built in sustain
          Good poke potential
          Can make a lot of pressure on the map
          Built in enemy jungler tracking.
          The faster clear out of all the junglers if done properly

Cons
 Very squishy early game
          Not useful if behind
          No crowd control
          Isn't the best champion in the current meta. 

Early Game Back to Top

You should be as active as possible early game. This is where you're at your best. You should be aggressive, but also clear your jungle as well. This is being helped by your fast clears.

Mid Game Back to Top

Take as much dragons as possible. Stick with your team and siege turrets. 

Late Game Back to Top

Group up with your team and peel for your adc. Poke before teamfights and only go in if you have a zhonya's or you hit a spear on one of their carries.

Advanced Mechanics. Back to Top

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEnp5fzbeQI
1. W-R (melee form). Needs to be done fast and you will change your form while jumping.
2. Q-W (melee form). Cancels the animation of your Q.
3.1 Double Jump(melee form). Q-W. You need to kill a target with your q and cancel the animation with your W. Your next W will have reduced cooldown to cover more distance in a short period of time.
3.2 Double Jump(Hybrid). Throw a javelintoss.png at a target. While the javelintoss.png is mid flight change forms and use your W. The spear needs to kill the target. After that your w will have a reduced cooldown.
3.3 Double Jump(Melee form) Use your W and instantly use 11.png on a target for it to kill them.
4. You can secure objectives as Dragon and Baron with your Melee form Q and 11.png. This needs to be executed in a really short duration. Make sure the objective is marked with your passive first.
5. If you're in a close situation and you need to dodge a skillshot. DO NOT USE YOUR javelintoss.png and SAVE YOUR JUMP FOR THE SKILLSHOT. The spear has an animation which you cant cancel so that will just stuck you in place so it will be easier for them to hit you.
6. Save your javelintoss.png. Your whole damage relies on you hitting a javelintoss.png, so don't use it way too early. Your enemies will usually just juke left or right. Wait for them to get in a bad corner and throw your spear when they are in a bad position to dodge it.
7. While clearing, only use your melee form Q if the monster is beneath 50 % hp. This excludes your first clear.
8. E-W (melee form). Cancels the animation of your swipe.
9. Use 3146.png before you use your melee form Q.
10. If you have 3057.png3100.png3145.png swing an auto before your melee form Q to output more damage.

Jungle Clearing Back to Top

Nidalee is extremely fast at clearing the jungle if done properly. Proper clearing takes skill and experience. Go in a custom game and clear the jungle for 20 minutes straight to get her clear right as it is a big part of her kit.

You can get an idea on how to clear here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IWZN9JX5jgA (THIS IS OUTDATED BUT STILL HELPS TO GET AN IDEA ON THE MECHANICS). 

Try to start at the bottom side of the jungle since you will get a harder leash from your bottom lane which speeds up your clear.
