Guide to Countering Brand as Nidalee

Tips for Playing as Nidalee against Brand

Start team fights by harassing with your Javelin Toss, and then switch to cougar form to chase down Hunted targets.

Bushwhack traps deal damage based on their victim's current Health. Set them up in your team's backline before fights break out during sieges to help your team deal damage to the enemy frontline.

Use brush to your advantage! Moving in and out of brush can heavily alter your effectiveness in battle.

Advice to Win Against Brand

Brand's passive allows him to excel against teams that cluster together. Be sure to split up against him.

Brand must land an ability before his combo is able to get started. Dodging his Sear or Pillar of Flame will disrupt his rhythm.

Try to move away from allies when you see Pyroclasm being cast. The initial missile speed is slow, which should give your team time to react.
