So, wait... Nidalee's spear....

#1ThyCorndogPosted 4/24/2013 3:07:35 PM
we all know it does more damage the farther it's thrown

but today I learned that it does even more damage the farther she's away from the point of impact

that's why a lot of Nidalee's pounce away after they throw a spear

that's not intuitive at all, but apparently it's true

why would it be? it doesn't make sense at all
unless you've heard it from someone or play Nidalee and noticed it, you wouldn't know

I heard it from someone today and I never play Nidalee, so...

You're right, it doesn't actually make any sense at all, but it has something to do with the damage being calculated when it hits, not when it was thrown.

That seems like a bug to me. However, if it's intended, does that mean that movespeed items are a huge increase in damage for spear Nidalees? And is the increase in damage linear or superlinear?

l0l no. That's why people switch to cougar and pounce away. The distance you gain is not actually that much, but it makes a difference. Build AP if you want to throw spears and do damage.

Ghost, twin shadows, Pure AP from then. Boots of move really fast (maybe just boots 3 if throwing the spear counts as combat) + flash + cougar pounce.

Go all out.
