Guide to Countering Nidalee as Garen

Tips for Playing as Garen against Nidalee

Garen's regeneration greatly increases if he can avoid receiving damage for several seconds.

Garen is only constrained by cooldowns, making items such as Black Cleaver very effective for him.

Judgment deals maximum damage when only hitting a single target. For effective trading, try to position such that only the enemy champion is hit.

Advice to Win Against Nidalee

Nidalee's Javelin Toss deals more damage the farther she is. If she is far away, it's imperative to dodge it.

Nidalee's Hunt debuff is only applied with Javelin Toss and Bushwhack. Avoiding being hit by these abilities will impair her ability to deal follow-up damage.

Nidalee's Takedown deals extreme damage to Hunted targets, but she has to get close to use it. Save your crowd control or defensive abilities for when she goes in for the kill.
