You destroy him the second you hit level 3 because NIdalees level 3 is the most ridiculous level 3 in the game right now.

Serious, you should go balls to the walls the second you hit. Run exhaust ignite if you have to, it's hillarious

Nid has an amazing early game and Vlad has a bad one, you shouldn't have any issues in this match up

How to beat Vladimir:

Step 1: Pick any champion with a decent early game
Step 2: ???
Step 3: Profit

No but seriously, if Vlad isn't playing passively early than make sure you punish him for that mistake. At early levels, Q is his only form of sustain and its on a long cooldown (and deals pitiful damage). His E does a lot of damage to him as well early, so he cant stack it prior to fights. Take advantage of this.

Also, never tower dive Vladimir with any champion unless if his pool is down (fairly simple rule to follow).

you're probably respecting him too much early game, especially as nid.

He's not resourceless entirely. Q and R are free but W and E cost health. Early game, E costs significant health.

He really can't reliably trade against a Nidalee pre-revolver. Just fight him a lot, trade autos for days (especially when you have the buff from E) and he'll lose out every time.

I don't support the "go all in super hard" necessarily. If you blow your load in a burst and then back off he'll trade alright and heal up in between bursts.

It's better to just have a sustained onslaught of harass throughout laning against him. Constantly autoattack him, go for spears etc.

You want to pepper him down. Early game it's not hard to get him to the point where he can't E because it will cost him too much HP and that means you have all the pressure in the lane because all he can do offensively is Q.
