Laning Against Nidalee

Laning Against Nidalee

Nidalee is an early game dominant Jungler. Ward her jungle entrances to spot her leaving her jungle to make ganking harder for her.

Deeper wards are preferred against Nidalee as she can use her Bushwhack / PounceW to jump over walls and manoeuvre around commonly warded bushes. Keep this in mind when placing wards.

Nidalee is easy to kill if the enemy Jungler hasn’t been kiting camps correctly. Try and invade and kill her early on as she doesn’t always have a healthy clear.

Strategy VS Nidalee

Strategy VS Nidalee

When grouping, do not let Nidalee poke you down with her Javelin Toss / TakedownQ. Engage as soon as she overextends to throw a Spear Javelin Toss / TakedownQ.

Nidalee will look to assassinate targets with her Javelin Toss / TakedownQ who are walking around Summoners Rift alone. Avoid splitting up and being alone if the enemy Nidalee is ahead.

CC is your best friend when it comes to handling Nidalee in team fights. As soon as she jumps in with her Bushwhack / PounceW, CC her and lock her down.

Nidalee Power Spikes

Nidalee Power Spikes

Nidalee will be quite strong once she has a few points in her Javelin Toss / TakedownQ. Her Spears Javelin Toss / TakedownQ deal a lot of damage, so make sure you dodge them.

Nidalee doesn’t spike as much at level 6 compared to other champions as she already has her Ultimate Aspect Of The CougarR at level 1.

Once she has completed her Jungling item, her damage output will be very good. Avoid fighting her unless you can catch her out of position or if you’re stronger than her.
