What stops nidalee from jungling?

She gets good speed with cougar/passive and she has a spear for ganks. Tell me why it wouldn't work so that I don't waste 3100ip just to try it.

Why would her spear be good for ganks?

Nothing stops her from jungling. You just cant gank well pre 6, and post 6 its still fairly weak. You also are entirely blue dependent till 6, have abysmal clear speeds till 6, and are extremely weak to an invade.

While what you say is true, its also easier to dodge the spear the farther it has to travel.

I just never see her considered as a pick for jungler and thought that it would work. What about if you laned just for a little while to get some XP?

That's an awful idea.

The fact that Nidalee is far stronger at laning? Impossible to gank, super harass, etc.

If you laned till 6, which is the point where she becomes competent at jungling, that defeated the whole point of jungling in the first place, which is primarily to gain an extra source of experience and gold income for your team, and have control of your side's red and blue buffs. The ganking ability is really a side benefit of jungling. Anyone in lane can go MIA for a gank, after all.
