Nidalee General information
Nidalee is an early game dominant Jungler. Look to gank as frequently as possible to get yourself ahead.
Use alternative ganking routes by jumping over small walls with your W to ignore commonly placed wards.
Delay a team fight for as long as possible while you poke them down with long-ranged Q’s.
