In a pro game, the intention of the spear wouldnt quite be to hit the target, but to time it so that:

1) It will guarantee a hit

2) Make them move into a position that would be very dangerous, so a smart player would take the hit.


I have to agree here. I tend to use it to make people make a choice to either get hit or be attacked by a champion. I throw it so that it makes a champion turn left instead of right and such, allowing for better positioning. It also still does okay damage up close and is harder to dodge when coming from the bushes.

I like to sneak my spears in between mobs onto the enemy marksman just as they are about to take a CS, so at worst if they dodge the lose a CS ;b Also I rarely throw my spears at the enemy but rather where I believe that they will dodge to in order to avoid it. I sometimes have to switch it up against players who have nerves of steel and just dont try to dodge it but that usually means that my ADC can get a hit or 2 on them without them being able to back out ;b Nidalee makes a strong support if you max out Q and force the enemy to low health with it, thus guaranteeing your ADC free CS and high safety. + when Q is combined with hunt + pounce + swipe + takedown it makes for hilarious burst damage if need be ;b Of course it's a calculated move since you are using your escape to engage there and a good player would stay well away from Nidalee's hunt range when they know she can do that to them. Either way free farming for me ADC ;b
