Summoner Spells Back to Top

Usually you wanna go with 12.png + 4.png which gives you the split pushing power, and possibility to join you team.


You can run 14.png if you want to go aggressive and possible win lane + the change of you keep snowballing further. 

Another option is of course if you go with the new Summoner%20Specialist.png?width=32 unsealed spell book, which allow you to get juicy from both sides, but you'll have to give up other runes like Press%20the%20Attack.png?width=32 or Grasp%20of%20the%20Undying.png?width=32!

New Runes Back to Top

Press%20the%20Attack.png?width=32 PTA is lovely to run if you know you can snowball and easy outplay your opponent. The damage is crazy when stacked. The good thing about the precision tree is you get Coup De Grace which fit perfectly with Nidalees Q in cougar form. The multiplying effect of Nidalees Q - Takedown with the scaling damage of missing 1% health and the 7% increased damage when the target is below 40% health. This makes Nidalees Q - Takedown a deadly executioner.
The Resovle path in secondary runes gives you the sustain needed for engaging and surviving laneing phase.



Grasp%20of%20the%20Undying.png?width=32 Runes with Grasp is simple gives you sustain, but also great health pool later on, nidalee got low hp base also later on. The trick here is to use grasp AA in human form then switch to your Cougar form which gives you the full effect. If you don't your your ultimate your gain with be 40% less then if used.


Summoner%20Specialist.png?width=32 Unsealed Spellbook! This one is awesome, or at least I think it has great potential. The only bedside is the rune path which isn't as good as the two others, but the fact that you have the opportunity to take flash and TP at the same time is giving Nidalee great laneing power. She get kills pressure in the early part of the game, which helps her snowball and get ahead which is needed for Nidalee to shine. Late in the game you can easily split push which again is one of Nidalees strong tools, and if ahead, no one can stop you and she can escape like butter.


13003d6fa9393a112.png?width=32 I am testing this because Nidalee is allowed to keep up the buff from Conqueror in her Cougar form, this might be able to have a really strong tank build for her. But again im still testing this rune setup.


Secondary Rune Paths:

Sudden%20Impact.png?width=32 + Relentless%20Hunter.png?width=32 Domination path gives penetration and mobility which both kinda fit Nidalee with leap and speed.

Transcendence.png?width=32 + Gathering%20Storm.png?width=32 Trancendens if you are going to cap CDR from items and Gathering Storm for extra stats. 

Celerity.png?width=32 + Gathering%20Storm.png?width=32 Celerity is great with the speed from Cougar form and again the extra stats are nice late game.

Bone%20Plating.png?width=32 + Conditioning.png?width=32 Resolve path for sustain vs ex. Riven Boneplate is great and the extra free defensive stats is worth it.

Overheal.png?width=32 + Legend%20Alacrity.png?width=32 Good for trading, you can E before a fight to get a shield and AS, if the fight is long you might heal extra.

Legend%20Alacrity.png?width=32 + Coup%20De%20Grace.png?width=32 Attack speed is great for Nidalees kit with E max for trades, and Coup De Grace is explained above.

The basic of Nidalee is the tool of getting ahead, the one great thing about Nidalee is her potential to trade.

In lane she uses her AA to poke down enemies, but landing Q's or them walking into W - Traps opens the opportunity for a good combo for trading. 

Reasoning for going bushwhack.png first is having control over enemy jungler and brushes, and leads to an all in level 2 with Q

javelintoss.png + bushwhack.png + javelintoss.png(Takedown) at level 2 gives a massive pressure in lane. Normally you'll use your AA and brushes between CS'ing to get a lead health and when you feel like it and hit either Q or a W - Trap you can think about going in for a trade or maybe a kill.

Maxing E primalsurge.png - The reasoning for this is to trade, the increased attack speed is great for fights, but also a heal, is very rare for top lanes. When trading try to save heal till after they engage on you, the reasoning is that you can hit more AA when they are leaving you, and you won't want to overheal - of course if you have Overheal.png?width=32 picked in the PTA rune path you can heal first to grant a shield and attack speed, and again after. This can't be useful, but again would you like to give up Triumph.png?width=32 for a this? This is a preference so if you like this go for it.
