Can Riot finally do something to change that? Nidalees E should work exactly like rumbles Q. Also her W should work exactly likes vaynes Q. Is it too strong or something, if they would change that?

They've already explained this.

It works the way it does because it makes Nidalee function the way she does. There's zero reason for them to change it and it would make her weaker over all.


She needs to be able to dash the way she's moving while lining up for her spear at the same time. Half of the good nidalee plays just wouldn't work with mouse targeted dash.

PS: It's ridiculously easy to use once you play her for a few rounds. Just requires a touch of attention.

Can you elaborate what you mean by this? Because I doubt making Nidalee's Cougar E a damage over time in front of her is a good idea, considering how powerful it is as burst.

Riot has something against giving nidalee good controls because it makes her "Unique". They're pretty dumb.

So you are complaining about the "cat"? what is wrong with her, to be honest i don't see anything OP. Her base damage is too high for you? Oh hello there darius, malphite, shen, xin zhao, irelia, jax, jarvan IV, olaf, renekton, vi, hecarim etc etc etc etc
Also these are not buffs, it would just make her better.

All 3 are stronger than Nidalee. Not sure what you meant by loss of credibility

She's in a very good place right now. I would not call her overpowered but she's definitely on the strong side.

AP Nidalee (mid, support and sometimes tops) can completely chunk you out of fights before they start while providing incredible map control and armor/mr debuffs (yes people aren't stacking full def anymore but it still is a HUGE debuff). Assuming your team has a brain and can handle disengaging bad teamfights then she's VERY strong. In this situation though she actually relies on the way her pounce works so that she can pounce in 1 direction while spearing in a completely different direction right after. Changing it would actually nerf her.


Bruiser nidalee is pretty good right now but getting nerfed next patch so I don't feel it'll be all that viable after. She's losing much of her tankyness which realllyyy isn't gonna end all that well for her. Some people will still pull it off though so can't say much. This is the only time I could see the change to her pounce helping her with raw ezmode kiting power but that would require her to be nerfed hard right after.

I agree, Nidalee should shoot fire from her mouth in Cat form.
