Additional Nidalee Build Insights

LoL Nidalee players could find her to be a dynamic character to build out properly. You'll notice that her build is modified when she is up against either generic or highly focused team comps, showing you should not follow the same Nidalee build every game of League of Legends

The most important items to incorporate into your champion's build include: Hextech Rocketbelt, Rabadon's Deathcap, and Zhonya's Hourglass. Those who included these pieces in their builds had a much higher win rate than those who used other Nidalee builds. Likewise, if you are facing a varied enemy team comp, you should strongly consider getting her the Domination, and Precision runes. In recent matches, she won the greatest fraction of her games when equipped with these runes.

We calculated our Nidalee build guidance by examining 21,392 recently ranked League rounds with her selected. We only advise the highest winrate Nidalee builds that were used by ranked players enough times for us to suggest them. With so many games in our data, we are quite confident in our provided builds.
