Guide to Countering Nidalee as Yorick

Tips for Playing as Yorick against Nidalee

You can send the Maiden down a lane alone, be careful though, as she represents a large portion of your combat power.

You do not need to cast Awakening to regain the ability to cast Last Rites.

The Maiden will attempt to assist you in a fight, so choose your targets well.

Advice to Win Against Nidalee

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

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.
