Visual Upgrade: Nidalee, the Bestial Huntress

Posted on at 8:26 PM by Moobeat
It looks like Nidalee's visual update is just a javelin toss away! Goodbye Triangle feet; hello awesome new model and updates for all of her skins.

"Many of you have been asking for a new look for Nidalee. We’re pleased to announce that we’ve heard you, and that you can expect a complete Visual Upgrade for the Bestial Huntress in an upcoming patch.

In addition to a new model for both lady and cougar, this update includes new animations and spell effects across both of her forms. We’ll also be upgrading the model and splash art for all of Nidalee’s skins, so you can enjoy the latest fashion, whether you’re a French Maid or a Pharaoh.

The next time you feel the need to go swiftly slinking through the brush, ready to pounce on an unsuspecting foe, do so knowing you look stunningly stylish."
Top to bottom, enjoy a preview of her base skin, French Maid skin, and Pharaoh skin!

    1. The green eyes <3 I hope she gets a new VO. Her current taunt and joke are retarded.

    2. The taunt I like, joke on the other hand... not so much. Also I hope that she gets voicing in cougar form too, cuz right now if she's in cougar she doesn't talk

    2. "Feet" is plural of "Foot". "Feets" isn't a word. Please stop using it.

    5. ^ I beg to differ, Leopard skin is best right now even before remake. Idk how it looks after remake tho :)

  8. Just like the TF remodel, it was completely out of nowhere. Also, apparently Nidalee likes to "dance" with wolves if you know what I mean (see last picture and Deornelas' comment).

  18. I like the update overall, but there's three things:

    1 - This is just minor: I just noticed that it's not a cougar anymore, but instead a saber-toothe tiger. Well, it looks kind of manly etc., but of course it looks better than just a cougar.

    2 - I think Nodalee's skin is abit too red. I mean, she's wild, yes, but she's not a redskin. It also looks abit weird since you can't alwaays differentiate between her and her clothes.

    3 - This one really annoys me: I don't like the new face. (Especially the Pharao one) It's not as firm as the old one and there are also some other things I don't like about it. Also, they changed Nidalee's eye colour to green, while it should have been brown/golden in the default.

    1. What do you mean by 'redskin'? Is that a derogatory term to the Native Americans? Well technically she's based off a tribeswoman from primeval African tribes, so yes she should have darker skin like how she is now

      Delete
    2. No it's not derogatory, I just don't know how to call it since english is not my native language. Yes, I am talking about the native Americans, those like Winnetou, with red skin.

      It makes sense if Nidalee's skin would be dark, but it's red, which neither makes sense nor looks good. (Also, if she was based of Africans, those are brown, not red.)

  19. the new pharaon skin looks worse than older -_-

    1. yeahh sadly :( i hope they change it to something as cool as the default one

    The Karma rework+visual upgrade will be the best to come :D

  24. It just sucks knowing that some skin sucks more than the original TT^TT Nida and TF is an example.

    Oh btw, goodbye triangle feet, welcome d*ck-looking feet ^^

  25. Traps are more visible, indirect nidalee nerf

    1. ok, you don't put them out in the open where everybody can see, you put them inside bushes so they don't know what hits them til it does... For the old traps, they're also visible out the open anyway

  26. Hopefully they will fix her cougar abilities to go to the cursor instead of putting them under the control of the pathing algorithm.

    1. what skin are you talking about? Leopard is already retired, French Maid I think was on sale last couple months...

      Delete
  31. The classic skin is awesome and all, but there's something about the white markings on her eyebrows (in cougar form) that irks me... It makes her look like an elder animal of the male kind lol

    1. this would probably fit well with a Dynasty Warrior skin as human, Zhu Rong maybe?

  33. Wuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut, her foot is made of more than 2 pixels now

    ReplyDelete
  34. True, she already needed a setting in appearance. but already now the ultimate fit and enjoy it. As Jayce and Elise can activate at level 1, should be the same for Nidalee.

    ReplyDelete
  35. yes, love my french maid skin even more now

    ReplyDelete
  36. The pharao cougar isn't on PBE. i hope that means they change that creepy lokking face into a more elegant cat face
