Playing against Nidalee

Key Insights
She's a fast clearing jungler and can finish 3 camps before 2:30.
Hitting champs or monsters with
Q
or
W
as human form marks them as Hunted for 4 secs, granting true sight, bonus MS towards them, and bonus damage on Cougar Q and W.
She has no built in CC, so instead of ganking, she might use her fast clear speed to look to invade and kill the opposing jungler.
Cougar form
Q
does more damage based on missing HP.
She's really hard to run from, on top of her spells, her
P
grants bonus MS when in brushes.
Power Spike
She's a jungler that thrives in the early game. Once she hits 3 and has all her spells, she becomes a very powerful duelist.
Her first two item spikes are the most important ones: Runic Echoes allows her to clear faster and
Lich Bane
greatly increases her damage in all-ins.
Vulnerable
She loses a lot of damage if she isn't able to mark an enemy champ with Hunt. If you dodge her human form Q and W, you can likely win the duel.
She's not the greatest team fight champ.
