Nidalee Top Lane Grasp Game Guide

Dupaatv here, Diamond Nid top 1trick here to show you guys its possible to mentally drain your opponents to a state of crumbling depression... or rage.. usually the latter.

With playing Nid top, its more of a side game than actually playing league of legends. Grasp of the Undying Game; if you don't know it, you most definitely should learn and here's how -

Grasp of the Undying
when activated on an enemy champion give the user 3.5-7 health depending on the attack stance of said user. So knowing Nidalee as a shapeshifter she gets both melee and ranged stats. Ever 3-5 seconds of combat you should be aiming to get stacks. Luckily with Nid its very easy to start stacking with 0 risks pre level 6. Sheen is a big step in winning the poke phase of laning. With Grasp/Sheen on top of an auto attack is great. (And ways to proc that combo is either Human Form auto then immediately switch to
Aspect Of The Cougar
Bushwhack / Pounce

to activate sheen before the auto lands, same principles apply to Human form E

Primal Surge / Swipe
Bushwhack / Pounce
) You are usually able to escape most top laner's engages with just your cougar pounce, if that's not the case then you need to space better. Make sure they cant get free poke on you or this whole "Game" is pointless.

Remember learn her damage curve. Wave clear is also very quick due to Cougar form resets with W. And if your questioning what to build against the team your up against. Pretty much build for

Divine Sunderer
AD/AP or
Iceborn Gauntlet
AP/TANK. I've seen these and tested these to be the best play style for the two different build paths.

AGAINT AD TOP - Building iceborn is proven to help sustain a lane against a strong ad opponent. Its all optional. You take 10% reduced damage for 2.5 seconds. every 1.5 seconds if applied/weaved properly with your abilities. Usually

Frozen Heart
is the right hand man of
Iceborn Gauntlet

AGAINST AP TOP - Building Divine Sunderer will help with burst and sustainability with the enemy poke. as well as higher burst damage/scaling Divine is a tough call because its just a skill build. Hard to pin a proper title for it
