Completely valid point. I would have loved to see her bug fixes come with the changes. However, with the scope of the sustain changes, it would have been inappropriate to leave Nidalee's heal as is. The alternative would have been nerfing her heal and waiting to buff her till the bug fixes were ready... I personally feel like that option would have been a poor choice.

probably because they want to push out the support changes with dominion. Too bad Nidalee is really in a class of her own. she doesn't fit in the same role as other supports. W/E.

This is from another thread but for the most part describes the problem with these inc nidalee changes.

The loss of the dodge is even worse since she will not be able to proc nimbleness or get anywhere near her old dodge amount.

Nerfing her heal ultimately nerfs her cougar form very hard. you almost always have to use that heal to heal up all the damage you took just to deal damage with cougar form.

This basically makes it so after taking damage in a team fight Nidalee is done. There are no defensive abilities or buffs on Nidalee. No CC of any kind. All she had was a heal and mobility on a squishy melee.

With that mana cost doubled you best be increasing her attack range because there is no way she is going to be able to solo lanes now. She has no reliable damage sources. They all require you to land long range or melee skillshots.

How is Nidalee supposed to harass when her main damage ability before 6 has double the mana cost?

A swipe buff finally but it still doesn't address the problem that pounce out damages it. It should have a 0.6-0.7 AP ratio to compensate for the range you have to get in to use it.

As for pounce I really didn't expect this and I'm pretty sure that is all I'm going to hear about now "pounce = OP escape".

TLDR:

Heal is Nidalee main form of early harass and is now useless for harass due to mana costs
She needs an attack range buff to compensate for weaker lane presence
Swipe is still not strong enough
Pounce = wtf are you thinking
Ult giving some defense is nice but it is still too weak.

Moving my thread is still to me a giant slap in the face.

Why don't you guys just rebuild her code. You could have made 12+ new Nidalee's by now. The same thing with Shaco.
