Gotta love that 0/9/21 AD Nidalee.


Hey you'll learn to fear that Nidalee. 3% bonus movement speed ontop of the new boot enchantment?

"Enchantment - Furor: Dealing damage to a champion with a single target attack or spell grants you a movement speed boost that decays over 2 seconds." (The boost was 12% last time I was on PBE).

Once Nidalee leaps into a bush she's suddenly half way across the map after she's hunted the lower HP carry who escaped behind 3 towers down the lane. It's really annoying.


I already hit both softcaps on Movement Speed just with MS Quints, TriForce+FoN and ult, I don't even think I need the passive. So unless dropping MS Quints for AD or ArPen makes up for the lost damage, we're talking about losing damage for some bonus gold and diminishing returns on bonus movement speed...

Only a few non-supports can go so deep in the utility tree without worry. Dudes like Ryze and Singed, off the top of my head.

You're probably taking my reply a bit seriously (it even started with "Hey" which learned scholars remark that it is the upmost of non-serious reply beginnings). My only serious point is that those boots are great on her; the 0/9/21 isn't my own opinion.

Really I don't see Nidalee specifically going into Pickpocket (I don't even run it on supports). But Season 3 Nidalee is going to be annoying either way.

*Also a low HP carry behind three alive towers is a very specific non-game relevant situation.

It has a cooldown.


5 seconds

stuff like nidalee gets free gold


Gotta love that 0/9/21 AD Nidalee.


0 9 21 is viable and will become even more viable when the mastery trees change, not sure what you're getting at

AD Nidalee needs the damage from the offensive masteries to win her lane?

I don't think nidalee needs anything to force people out of lane

In some matchups she could still do so but it would be harder. Some matchups (e.g. sustain lanes) it's hard enough to outdamage their sustain without the armor pen, ad, etc. from the offensive tree. In addition, the bonus damage from the last mastery in the tree synergises perfectly with Takedown.

I feel sorry for melee supports.
