  • Base Mana Regen per 5 seconds reduced to 5 from 6
  • Mana Regen per level reduced to 0.4 from 0.5
  • Base Health Regen reduced to 4.5 from 5.0
  • Health Regen per level reduced to 0.5 from 0.6
  • Armor per level reduced to 3.0 from 3.5
  • Javelin Toss Ability Power nerf reverted back to 40% (120% max) from 35% (105% max)
  • Javelin Toss cooldown now 5 seconds at all points in the game
  • Javelin Toss mana cost increased to 60/75/90/105/120 from 50/60/70/80/90
  • Bushwhack damage now capped against neutrals at 150 damage based on Health per tick
  • Primal Surge Mana cost reduced to 60/75/90/105/120 from 60/80/100/120/140
  • Primal Surge buff duration increased to 7 seconds from 6
  • Aspect of the Cougar cooldown adjusted to 3.0/2.5/2.0/1.5 from 5.00/3.75/2.50/1.25
  • Aspect of the Cougar now additionally grants 5/10/15/20 Armor and Magic Resist while in cougar form

Generally, I really liked what I saw from the reduced width on Javelin Toss. I'm not sure if 20 is the exact correct width at this point, but it looked like if someone tried to dodge it reasonably well, they would in most cases. With tweaks to her mana costs and cooldowns, Nidalee can spam spears that do good damage if she wants to, but they're going cost her quite a bit of the blue bar to do so. I've increased her mana pool by a bit, but lowered all her Health Regen and Mana Regen stats. Tuned correctly, she won't just have infinite mana with a Chalice due to the lower Regen stats. Additionally, now that she's not bursting people quite so hard, I put some resists on Aspect of the Cougar so she can get in there and mix it up with similar resists to other melee characters. To do this, I took some off her Armor per Level so that she remains quite squishy in ranged form.

Keep the feedback coming. I've seen a lot of good stuff just watching you guys play her over the last few days! - Repertoir
