I think to myself.

"Yet another top main who got forced into support role and is probably going to start with doran's ring never buy a sight stone and will probably use traps instead of getting actual wards."

True, sometimes you get one who is an actual support main, or just does a good job at support. And they will do the job correctly. But often times they really don't do anything to "support" other than chuck a spear every six seconds.

as an nidalee support, i'll still buy sightstone and do the basic job of a support, but i feel that her main weakness is she can't do anything to protect the support in teamfight

Support Nid has wicked poke, great brush control and a sustain and relevant AS steroid for her carry. I don't see the problem with her being a support.

But if you start Doran's Ring then, yeah, you're not taking your support role seriously. Traps do not = wards.

I do see Nidalee as a viable support because of her harass, heal and what vision she can get from traps.

It just bugs me that the majority of support Nids I have seen are too lazy to support to their fullest potential.

Nidalee is a support for people who don't like supporting.

Essentially.

This is how I feel anytime uses a nonstandard support. Even Lux and Zyra . . it's not that they are bad, it's that people seem to think that playing one of the traditional supports is bad. They feel that if they play a mage, they can just build AP as long as they buy a few wards. What usually ends up happening is you get people trying to take kills that don't ward enough and get their ADC killed when they use what CC they have on the other teams support. Again, not saying they are bad, just that many people play those champs when they get forced to support and don't go into the game with the right mindset.

Edit: Protect the adc.

I agree with what is said here. Unless you have top/jungle who will stay back with adc this is what limits nid support.

Do her traps still reveal wards?

she is not a traditional support. ideally as support nid, you poke with spears and feed your adc, then by end game you can give heals/AS steroid to carries and let them do their job.

Support Nid truly shines by annoying the enemy support with spears and traps
