Nidalee, the Beast Mistress
Champion Type: Hunter
There are few dwellers, let alone champions, residing in the
blasted and dangerous lands that lie south of the Great Barrier. Much
of that world still bears the scars of past Rune Wars, especially the
mysterious Kumungu Jungle. There are long-forgotten treasures in these
strange places which many risk life and limb to acquire. The champion
known as Nidalee was only a young girl travelling with her
treasure-seeking parents when they lost their way in the dense, rainy
jungles. The jungle was unforgiving, and she watched her parents suffer
agonizing final days as they fell victim to a mysterious and vicious
disease. As improbable as it was for a child to survive in the
inhospitable jungle by herself, she did just that. Her youthful
innocence and a fortunate naïveté caused her to appeal to the beasts of
that place and she was taken in by a family of cougars and raised as
one of their own. She grew and somehow absorbed the raw magic of the
dense wilds, evolving beyond both her human physiology and her feline
affectation. On one pivotal day in her life, standing over the torn
remnants of a Noxian squad of woodcutters, Nidalee chose to rejoin the
so-called civilized world, to fight in the League of Legends so as to
protect the vast woods from both Demacia and Noxus.
Nidalee was taught to fight by her feline family, battling
viciously with tool and nail. Something in her feline ways may draw you
to her, but remember that she is no pussycat.
Because Nidalee can transform into a cougar, she has two sets of
abilities. One ability set for when she is in human form, and a
different ability set when she is in cougar form.
Javelin Toss: In human form, Nidalee throws a spiked javelin at her target that gains damage as it flies.
Takedown: As a cougar, she grabs her opponent by the throat and
attempts to bring them down, dealing more damage based on how wounded
the target is.
Bushwhack: In human form, Nidalee lays a damaging trap for unwary
opponents that, when sprung, reveals the target and reduces their armor
and magic resistance for 12 seconds.
Pounce: As a cougar, she pounces forward, dealing a small amount of damage when she lands.
Primal Surge: In human form, Nidalee channels the spirit of the cougar
to imbibe herself and her allies with increased damage and attack speed
for a short duration.
Swipe: As a cougar, she rapidly claws enemies in front of her.
Aspect of the Cougar
Nidalee changes her form, switching her ability set in the process.
Leveling up this skill improves Nidalee’s cougar form abilities.
Moving through brush increases Nidalee’s movement speed by 25% for 2 seconds.
