Were Not Done So Please Just View Will Finish ASAP[/title] [img=champ/nidalee.png] [imgsmall=skills/nidalee/p.png][imgsmall=skills/nidalee/q.png][imgsmall=skills/nidalee/w.png][imgsmall=skills/nidalee/e.png][imgsmall=skills/nidalee/r.png] [title]Nidalee The Bestial Huntress[/title] Nidalee Is A Tanky DPS / Pusher Most People Have Been Going Nidalee Top AD Lately, So Why Not Bottom? [title]1700 Range[/title] [imgext=] [title]1550 Range[/title] [imgext=] [title]Pros: [/title] Very Tanky And Deals A Lot Of Damage Heals, And Some Sustain Herself As well As Aspd Boost Can Engage / Has Gap Closer [title]Leaves Room For Another Tanky DPS Top Lane[/title] [title]Cons: [/title] Early Game, Really Only Has Poke Harass But Generally Doesn't Dominate Lane Until Around 9 Or So Not Very Easy To Cs With Early Game Not Very Good When Pushed To Tower (Hard CS Early On Tower)[/center]

[center][title][img=skills/nidalee/p.png] Passive: Prowl[/title] [number]Moving through brush increases Nidalee's movement speed by 15% for 2 seconds.[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Nice Little Passive. Helps In Lane A Bit, And All Game Rather. Going In And Out Of Bushes, Just Overall Makes You Faster And More Agile [title][img=skills/nidalee/q.png] Q: Javelin Toss / Takedown[/title] [number]Human: Nidalee tosses her javelin, dealing 55 / 95 / 140 / 185 / 230 (+65% of ability power) magic damage on impact (deals up to 250% damage the further away the target is). Cougar: Nidalee's next attack deals additional damage based on how low her opponent's life is. Cooldown 6 seconds Cost 50/60/70/80/90 mana Range 1500[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] While Going AD, Doesnt Do A Tremendous Amount Of Damage But Does Help And Is Nice Damage In Cougar Form [title][img=skills/nidalee/w.png] W: Bushwhack / Pounce[/title] [number]Human: Nidalee lays a trap that deals 80 / 125 / 170 / 215 / 260 (+40% of ability power) damage over 2 seconds, reveals the target, and reduces their armor and magic resistance by 20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40% for 12 seconds. Traps last for 4 minutes. Cougar: Nidalee lunges forward, dealing damage to surrounding enemies. Pounce is not affected by cooldown reduction. Cooldown 18seconds Cost 60 / 75 / 90 / 105 / 120mana Range 900[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] This, While Not Doing Much Damage, Will Help In Lane A Lot. Lights Up The Bush For A Split Second So You Can See, But Then If They Walk Over It It Will Deal Damage Over 2 Seconds And Armor/Magic Resist Debuf For 12 Seconds. While In Cougar Form Allows You To Pounce For Damage And Chase/Escaping. Can Even Pounce Over Some Walls [title][img=skills/nidalee/e.png] E: Primal Surge / Swipe[/title] [number]Human: Nidalee heals an ally champion for 50/85/120/155/190 (+70% of ability power) and grants them a 20 / 30 / 40 / 50 / 60% attack speed for 7 seconds. Cougar: Nidelee claws at enemies in front of her. Cooldown 10 seconds Cost 60/80/100/120/140 mana Range 600[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Very Nice Skill, While Healing You For A Decent Amount, Gives An Aspd Buff Also. I Max This First. While In Cougar Form Gives A Small Range Aoe Damage, Helps While Trying To CS And For Damaging [title][img=skills/nidalee/r.png] R: Aspect Of The Cougar[/title] [number]Passive: Each additional rank increases the effectiveness of Nidalee's cougar abilities. Nidalee transforms into a vicious cougar, gaining 20 movement speed, 10/20/30 armor and magic resistance and a new set of abilities. Cooldown 4 seconds[/number] [title]Explanation:[/title] Nidalee's Ultimate. Besides Granting Movement Speed And Armor/Magic Resist Buff, You Get A Whole New Amount Of Skills. Really Need This Before You Start Trying To Fight Bottom Lane Toe To Toe [img=summoners/flash.png][img=summoners/ignite.png] Probably The Best Combo Of Summoners For Bottom Lane, Counters Healing Pretty Hard Such As Summoner Heal And Sona/Soraka. Flash Helps You Get Away Or Flash On Ontop/Chase The Enemy, And Ignite Helps Negate Heals And Gives The Extra Boost Of Damage, Especially Early Game [img=summoners/cleanse.png] Cleanse Will Probably Substitute Ignite In Heavy Heavy CC Situations, That Or QSS [img=summoners/ghost.png] Have Not Done So Yet, But Sort Of Like Flash, Escape/Gap Closer, Will Work Well Also, But Nidalee Is Already Very Fast, I think Flash Is A Better Pick [img=summoners/heal.png] Heal, Well Im Not Sure, If Nidalee Uses It Instead Of Support it Will Increase It Giving Her More, But Supports Generally Carry It, And I Think Ignite For The Damage Will Be Better Overall [/center]

[center][img=champ/nidalee.png] [title]Versus[/title] [title]Carries:[/title] [imgsmall=champ/ashe.png] Ashe: Haven't Done It Yet, But Ashe Counters Nidalee. While Nidalee Can Do Really Nice DPS And Probably Nearly 2 Shot Ashe, Ashe's Slow/Volley/Arrow Will Ultimately Kite And Beat Her [imgsmall=champ/caitlyn.png] Caitlyn: While Caitlyn Has The Early Game Advantage Of Range, Once 6 Nidalee Can Generally Out DPS Caitlyn. Be Careful Play Smart And CS. Once 6 And Phage You Should Win [imgsmall=champ/corki.png] Corki: He's Actually Pretty Hard, Just Because He Can Clear Waves With Q And Push You To Tower. Nidalee's Early Game Damage Is Hard To CS On Tower Because Her Damage. Around 9 Or So With Phage And Sheen You Can Try To Beat Him In Fights, But He Will Probably Just Jump Away And Shoot Missiles. Hard Lane Over All But Mid Game And Team Fights Can Do Tremendous Damage To Him And Potentially Back Him Out Of Fights [imgsmall=champ/ezreal.png] Ezreal: Have Not Fought Yet, Will Add When We Can Accurately Tell [imgsmall=champ/kogmaw.png] KogMaw: Have Not Fought Yet, Will Add When We Can Accurately Tell [imgsmall=champ/missfortune.png] Miss Fortune: Very Hard To Fight, She Out DPS Nidalee Early Game, And Counters The Heals With Her [imgsmall=skills/missfortune/w.png]. Can Possibly Win Mid/Late Game If You Catch Her Alone, Or During Team Fights Burst Her. Otherwise Laning Phase Is Pretty Hard, Try And Stay Back And CS [imgsmall=champ/sivir.png] Sivir: Well, Sivir Is Semi Hard To Deal With. Can Semi Burst/Damage Her But Cannot Trap Bushes Or She Will Get Mana Back From [imgsmall=skills/sivir/e.png]. She Out Ranges You With Her [imgsmall=skills/sivir/q.png][imgsmall=skills/sivir/w.png] Spells And Can [imgsmall=skills/sivir/e.png] Part Of Your Damage. But If You Can Slow Her And Jump On Her She's Killable [imgsmall=champ/teemo.png] Teemo: Have Not Fought Yet, Will Add When We Can Accurately Tell [imgsmall=champ/tristana.png] Tristana: Have Not Fought Yet, Will Add When We Can Accurately Tell [imgsmall=champ/twistedfate.png] Twisted Fate: Have Not Fought Yet, Will Add When We Can Accurately Tell [imgsmall=champ/urgot.png] Urgot: Have Not Fought Yet, Will Add When We Can Accurately Tell [imgsmall=champ/vayne.png] Vayne: Vayne.. Well Shes Strong But Early Can Beat Her. At 6 Bottom Should Win, And Early Game. Vaynes Best Is Late Game And If Fed.. Make Sure To Have CC And Vayne Generally Isnt A Problem. If She Is.. Hopefully The Team Can Burst Her Down Fast. [title]Supports:[/title] [imgsmall=champ/alistar.png] Alistar: Not Really A Hard Lane, Watch Yourself Before Cougar Form, If You Get Caught, You Dont Take Much Damage. Harass Them, He Normally Doesnt Get Heal Until 3, And Will Burn His Mana. At 6 You And Support Can Fight Them And Deal A Ton Of Damage if Not Kill. As Always Be Careful Of Junglers (But Bot's Normally Warded With A Good Support). If You Start Losing Always Can Back Out And Heal. [imgsmall=champ/blitzcrank.png] Blitzcrank: Actually Isn't A Very Hard Laner. Accomapnied With Miss Fortune Is Though... But With Other Carries Such As [imgsmall=champ/caitlyn.png] or [imgsmall=champ/vayne.png], Even Others Its Not To Hard. You Can Get Grabbed And Escape Aswell As Poke Harass. Blitz Has No Heal So, Try To Harass As Much As Possible. (Summoner Heal Is Very Long CoolDown). At 6 You Can Get Grabbed (Into Bushes) And Fight, Most Likely Will Win Aswell Especially With Your [imgsmall=items/phage.png] And Heals. [imgsmall=champ/janna.png] Janna: Same As Blitz. Careful Very Early But Poke Harass. And Watch For Something Like Janna Knockup Into Condemn From Vayne. Other Then That Its Fine. At 6 You Own Lane. Nidalee Can Poke And Cougar Form Both To Out DPS. Even If You Cant. Back Up, Heal And Out Sustain [imgsmall=champ/karma.png] Karma: Have Yet To Face But I Assume Its Like Janna, And Try To Burn Mana. [imgsmall=champ/kayle.png] Kayle: Kayle.. Hmmm In The Games Versus Kayle, Very Early They Out DPS. So Best To Sit In Lane Farm, And Poke Harass. Burn Kayles Mana Best You Can, But More Importantly Try To Last Hit. Once 6ish With [imgsmall=items/phage.png] Try To Jump On Them And Do As Much DPS As You Can If Not Kill. Heal Up And Repeat. [imgsmall=champ/leona.png] Leona: Leona Is Somewhat Like Alistar, But Without Heals. Basically Very Early Avoid Being Stunned, Poke Harass. At 6 Try To Deal Damage With Cougar Form. [imgsmall=champ/maokai.png] Maokai: Have Yet To Face Maokai. Some What Like Alistar And Leona I Assume, Just Try Not To Get Caught Early [imgsmall=champ/sona.png] Sona: Sona Is Good To Lane With And Decent To Verse. She Has Sustain Much Like You, But Heals Less. She Can Damage And Give Her Ally Extra, So Be Careful Of It Early. Around 6 Try To Jump On Them Do As Much Harass/Damage As You Can. Burn Sona's Mana.. Hit "1" Person Preferably Because She Will Spend Time/Extra Mana Healing That 1 Person. [imgsmall=champ/soraka.png] Soraka: Soraka. My Favorite To Lane With, Not So Much Against! Well Soraka Has High Sustain, Poking Early Can Be Good But She Has Infuse And Gets Mana Back. Mainly Try To Poke Harass And Farm. Mainly Farm. At 6, Try To Engage Then Get Soraka To Burn Heal Then Either Change Target Or Fight. With Ignite It Will Help Negate Her Ultimate/Heal. Soraka Dies Very Quickly So If You Focus AD Carry Then Change Target That Works Pretty Well. [imgsmall=champ/taric.png] Taric: Careful For Early Game. Taric With Ranged Carries Can Be Deadly And This Is Where Nidalee Is At Her Weakest. Try To Farm Early Then Around 6 Harass/Kill. If You Cant Kill, Just Waste Their Summoners/Mana And Try To Out Farm. [imgsmall=champ/zilean.png] Zilean: Have yet To Fight Zilean, Just Be Careful At Early. The Bombs Will Deal Some Damage, Just Dont Engage Much With Long CD, Low Heal Spells. Around 6 Try To Kill, If Soraka Is Good May Even Silence Before He Can Ultimate. [/center]

[center][imgsmall=champ/soraka.png] Soraka: My Personal Favorite Support. For Nidalee I Believe Its Probably The Best. Not Only Does Soraka Have A Huge Heal/Armor Boost But She Can Give Mana Aswell. Nidalee Can Constantly Trap The Bushes, And Heal Herself When Hurt. Soraka Can Silence The Enemy And Help Prevent Flash Or Dangerous Situations. That Accompanied By Summoner Heal... Well Lets Put It This Way Soraka = [imgsmall=skills/soraka/w.png]+[imgsmall=skills/soraka/r.png]+[imgsmall=summoners/heal.png] Very Very Good And Hard To Kill And Allows You To Not Only Live And Sustain But Potentially Tower Dive For Kills [imgsmall=champ/janna.png] Janna I Like Janna, When You Cant Soraka Or Personal Preference Does Work Aswell. Janna's Shield, Not Only Shields Damage But Also Gives A Boost In Damage, A Very Nice Boost Indeed. This Lane Works Pretty Well Together, Especially Because Nidalee Can Heal Herself. The Only Problem Is That Nidalee Cant Burn Mana As Often And Needs To Conserve It. The Combo Of Knockup And Slowing Enemies And Damage Shield Can Deal A Ton Of Damage. Overall A Good Lane [imgsmall=champ/sona.png] Sona: Very Good Lane Partner. She Deals Damage Aswell As Gives You A Boost On Your Damage. Great Lane, As Always Watch Your Mana. At 6 Cougar Form + Sona Ulti is Very Very Nice, Same For Team Fights. The Movement Speed And Armor Buff Help A Ton [imgsmall=champ/karma.png] Karma: Haven't' Done Karma Support In A While, But I See This Being A Mediocre Lane. Careful For Both Of You On Mana. Try To Lane And Around 6, Cougar Form With Shield Explosion Damage/Heal May Work In Your Favor, Haven't Tried It Yet Though. [imgsmall=champ/kayle.png] Kayle: I Dont See This Lane Working Well, As You May Have Extra Damage, Kayle Is Item Dependent And As A Support I Feel She Lacks, Atleast Mid Game. Early Game She May Do Fairly Decent Because Not Only Nidalee's Heal, Kayle Has Her Own. Damage And Slow From Kayle May Work In Your Favor, Though I Dont Know. [imgsmall=champ/alistar.png] Alistar: This Lane Works Fairly Well. Alistar Combo Into Pounce Works Nicely And The Damage Is Really In Your Favor. Earlier Though, Alistar Can Stun/Knockup And Nidalee Can Do A Little DPS. Mainly Her Job Is To Farm Until 6 Then Combo Kill Bottom. [imgsmall=champ/leona.png] Leona: Basically Same As Alistar, Except No Heal From Alistar. Watch Your Mana, And Try To Harass And Farm. At 6 Your Combo Works Really Well Together And Will Most Likely End In Atleast One Kill Bottom. [imgsmall=champ/taric.png] Taric: Good/Decent Lane Partner. Can Stun And Poke Harass But The Real Damage Comes At 6. Taric Stun Into Cougar Form, Slow From Phage, With Tari's Ultimate And Shatter, Combo Pretty Nice. Tarics Heals Help Aswell. Decent Lane [imgsmall=champ/zilean.png] Zilean: Have Yet To Try, But I Dont See It Working Well.. Early Game Low Heals/Mana For Both, At 6 Might Work, Phage With Zilean Speed/Bombs, Careful For Soraka/Sona Lanes, Heals Will Probably Counter.[/center]

[center]Normally I Start With [imgsmall=items/dorans-blade.png], Because Soraka And Nidalee Have A Very Good Synergy Together, With Heals Aswell As Infuse For Mana And Silence. But If You Dont Have A Soraka, [imgsmall=items/boots-of-speed.png]+[imgsmall=items/health-potion3.png] Works Fine Aswell. Generally You Use Bushes For Your Passive Movement Speed And Try To Poke Harass When You Can Aswell As CS. You Can Take Some Damage, Especially Veruses Someone With No Heals Like [imgsmall=champ/blitzcrank.png] Or [imgsmall=champ/janna.png]. Dont Take To Much Damage As Your Heals Will Only Go So Far. Around 1800 Gold Try And Back To Buy Your First Item [imgsmall=items/phage.png] And Boots. You Should Be Around 6 And Can Go Poke Harass Aswell As Cougar Form To Deal Good Damage, This Is Where The Lane Realy Starts Turning Around. [/center]

[center]This Is Where Nidalee Really Starts To Shine. Her Damage Is Very Good, You Should Have A [imgsmall=items/phage.png]+[imgsmall=items/sheen.png] And [imgsmall=items/boots-of-speed.png]. Because Of Your Movement Speed With Cougar Form, You Can Try And Help Middle Lane From Time To Time Aswell As Bottom. Team Fights Have Started Or Will Start Very Soon So Its Imperative To Try And Finish Your Items. Work On Farming Up Your [imgsmall=items/trinity-force.png] And [imgsmall=items/mercurys-treads.png]/[imgsmall=items/ninja-tabi.png]. At This Point Your Very Very Strong, You Can Deal A Ton Of Damage While Slowing And Catching Up To Players. At This Point Try And Start Dragon Fights, If You Haven't Already. Stay Back Though, Let Someone Else Initiate The Fight. Your Job Is To Poke Harass And Wait For Your Chance. When You See Someone, Even Tank Around Half Health, Jump On Them In Courgar Form. At This Point There Is No Real "Tank". After That Jump Around And Kill Whoever You See. Around This Time You Should Be Able To Afford [imgsmall=items/giants-belt.png], And Finish Your [imgsmall=items/warmogs-armor.png]. Try To Force Another Fight, During This Time Your Job Is To Fight The AD Carry And Kill Him. He Wont Be As Strong As You, Still Semi Weak So During Fights Focus Him. Save Until You Can Get Your [imgsmall=items/atmas-impaler.png] [/center]

[center]Late Game Your Job Is Basically To Hopefully Carry As Any Ranged Carry Should. You Can Poke Harass, You Can Spear, And Can Jump In. You Can Get Caught or Initiate A Fight While With Your Team. Your Very Tanky And Can Deal Alot Of DPS. Main Roll Is To Disable Or Kill The Carries As Quickly As Possible. If Their Carry Runs Away Stay With Your Team And Fight, You Did Your Job. Because of Your [imgsmall=items/trinity-force.png] You Can Stick To People Fairly Easily And The Damage You Put Out Is Tremendous. Try To Trap Bushes And Such To See When People Walk Into Them, Or Give You Vision For That Second Instead Of Face Checking. Nidalee Is Quick And Agile So She Can Hop Walls And Clear Waves Pretty Fast Then Get Back To Her Team For Fights[/center]

[center][title]Early Fights: [/title] Your Pretty Weak. Just Poke Harass And Farm. There Isn't Many Team Fights Then Maybe Just A Small Fight With Your Lane And Jungler's Or Visa Versa. When They Do Occur Your Job Is To Sit Back And Wait Until Someone Is Low, Around 50% Health And Jump On Them Try To Kill Then Jump Around And Pick Off People [title]Mid Game Fights:[/title] This Is Where Nidalee Is Tanky And Has Good Damage Output. Your Job Is To Try And Kill The Ad Carry And Shut Him Down Further, After That You Can Jump Around And Tank Some Aswell As Do Really Good Damage To Basically Everyone. Remember Your Most Likely Stronger And Tankier Then Their Ranged Carry. [title]End Game Fights:[/title] Nidalee Is Insane At This Point. With Your ([imgsmall=items/trinity-force.png][imgsmall=items/mercurys-treads.png][imgsmall=items/warmogs-armor.png][imgsmall=items/atmas-impaler.png]) You Can Get Grabbed From Blitzcrank To Start Fights, Can Initiate With Someone Else, You Can Really Do Some Damage. Basically The Same As Mid Game, You Try And Disable The Carries Of The Enemy Team As Quickly As Possible While Being Pretty Tanky. Your Choice Of Last Items: [imgsmall=items/force-of-nature.png] [imgsmall=items/guardian-angel.png] [imgsmall=items/last-whisper.png] [imgsmall=items/the-bloodthirster.png] [imgsmall=items/banshees-veil.png] [imgsmall=items/the-black-cleaver.png] [imgsmall=items/randuins-omen.png] [title]Creators Of This Guide And Nidalee Bottom Lane Concept:[/title] MissyMegan / Cuddlesv3[/center]
