Guide to Countering Nidalee as Senna

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.
