Why can't Nidalee level 1 form shift when Elise and Jayce can?

Has Riot hinted at making a change to allow this? Would it be too strong or something?

The main difference between her transformation compared to those two is that the damage of her abilities are dependant on her ult level instead of what she has in her abilites similar to Karma's mantra.

This among other things made bruiser Nidalee pretty strong and viable until Riot said "no".

Because Takedown is insane. The ratios are way too high for level one.
Just so everyone knows, the plural of STAFF is STAVES

She's balanced around getting her abilities at level 6. Even if the base damages early game were made very weak, having that mobility and the cougar spell rotation from level 3 would be too strong.

It's also because she was released with the game some 4 years ago, meanwhile the other two were made within the past few months

Standby for original and insightful thoughts.

Power creep. It's the only reason. If Nid was released now, she'd be able to cat up at level 1.

Her cat abilities don't cost mana.

Neither do Elise's... I don't see the point of this post.

IIRC, neither do Elise's spider abilities.
