- A heal. 190 base, 0.75 AP ratio. Really ****ty, huh? But it also gives 60% aspd buff for 7 secs and its on a 10 (6@40CDR) sec cooldown.

- Cougar form gives her an execution skill (Q), free getaways (W, on 3 sec CD) and AOE damage (E) and its always up.

aaaaaand she also has 15% MS buff as she walks through brush and 2 secs after she leaves it, but its okay, there isn't enough brush on dominion anyways.

I really hope Riot buffs this champion, its complete ass, seriously.
I think they know she's on the strong side because they did just release the new Headhunter Nidalee skin.

She's a little too strong for BLIND, just based on what she counters, but the same could easily be said about Yorick, Himer, or Urgot as a bot laner, or akali, jax, and rammus top. She can luck into a very ideal situation for her kit through the power of blind pick is all. Kass, on the other hand, LITERALLY cannot be countered by any other champion.

I'd say she's closer to Jayce than Kassadin. Completely stupid poke damage, completely stupid utility, stupidly hard to catch and kill without stacked CC and burst damage.

pokes and finishing moves, she loses direct confrontations.
her early game is really weak and she falls off a bit late game
she's pretty strong in dominion no doubht but not broken like kass or jayce

I'd rather play against Kass over Nid. A Nid chucking blind spears is enough to make a teammate worthless in a fight by removing his health bar. She has a good idea where the other team is going to be anyway so why not?

New Nidalee skin is retarded. Can't see traps OR spears. Yay.

Kassadin is far more annoying for me. When I catch a Nidalee, I can at least force her into a fight and do some damage. For a Kass, when I catch him...he just jump over a wall and I cannot expect to catch him unless I brought something like ghost or flash. Even if I did and caught him, he can still just jump over another wall.

Do I think Nidalee is very strong? Yes
Do I think Nidalee is on the level of Kassadin? No. The lack of AoE slow, silence, and a short cooldown blink still puts Kassadin above her.
Do I think Nidalee should be looked at? Maybe, I rather have Riot focus on Kassadin first.

Edit: That is not to say Riot shouldn't put Nidalee on the bullet board of champions they should look at closer. But first things first, Riot needs to install a "board of champions they should look at closer" for Dominion in their HQ.

She's not that strong. I counter her pretty hard with Kassadin.

Nidalee's only real counters are like Khazix and Kassadin.

Suggests a lot about that champion to be honest. Also, she has ridiculous interactions with teemo and/or ap shaco backdoor strats.

On her own, I wouldn't mind playing vs her. If she's paired with teemo and/or pooter shaco, I'd rather play vs Kassadin every single time.
