Freljord is an unforgiving land covered in snow and ice. Travel, especially in the winter, can be very dangerous. The elements often claim even those who have spent their entire lives there. The boy known as Nunu is defined by such tragedy. One day when he was a young child, Nunu rode on his father's back as they returned from a trapping expedition in the mountains. An unexpected blizzard came upon them, forcing them to seek refuge in a cave. The tempest was the worst in countless years, and it lasted for days. Nunu's father left to find food, but he never returned.
The blizzard eventually cleared, and the young child lay dying on the mountainside. Fortunately for Nunu, this was the land of the yetis, who are powerful beasts with whom Nunu's father had secured an arrangement for safe passage. A young yeti boy named Willump found Nunu and brought him home. From then on Nunu was raised by the yetis, whose culture remains a mystery to most Runeterrans. The boy quickly discovered that the seemingly savage creatures were in fact deeply spiritual beings living in harmony with their environment. They are very territorial and unafraid of defending themselves if called upon to do so. The yetis have watched the rest of Valoran, and they can smell the change on the wind. When the League of Legends was formed, the yetis knew they needed a champion. Riding his brother Willump, Nunu became that champion. Those who follow the League know that the boy is mature beyond his years, but, while he appears human, his mind is that of his adoptive kin.
"If this is him now, imagine what Nunu will be like when he grows up!"
VISIONARY - This is a great passive because it will allow you to harrass and stay in your lane for longer periods of time. Use this spell with your consume, ice blast and absolute zero; your main mana drainers. Use Blood Boil after visionary proc's if you don't already have it on.
CONSUME - This is your KEY TO SURVIVAL you are going to max this as soon as you can whenever your not maxing ICE BLAST or ABSOLUTE ZERO. The reason you want to get this before Blood Boil is because you are going to want to stay alive and stay in your lane longer than just running a little bit faster. It will also help you primarily with jungling. If you max this sooner rather than later you can get the upper hand on the competition by consuming Golem and Lizard and gaining those very important buffs as well as getting more gold which is always good.
BLOOD BOIL - Once you get Blood Boil you need to use it every 15 seconds that you can. This spell will help you chase and get away from enemies. This is needed later because you are going to want more survivability from CONSUME other than to be a little bit faster.
ICE BLAST - Key nuke and slow spell. Try to harass champions with this as soon as you get it once you proc your visionary.
ABSOLUTE ZERO - This is a spell that is going to hit hard during mid and late game. Use it wisely, try using it in the bushes and in big team fights. Or the teleport + absolute zero = +1 Kill and 2 stacks. Although you must be careful because your ultimate can be stopped by any stun, taunt, throw and push. So be aware of who you cast it on or the people you cast it near.
- I find that exhaust is very needed. Even though you do have Ice Blast which slows your enemy for a short time. Exhaust is a great spell because it not only slows them by 40% for 3 seconds it also makes them have a 100% miss chance for those 3 seconds as well which can be a life saver. Also, if you stack a Ice Blast with Exhaust you have a 90% speed decrease.
Speed decrease break down:
Exhaust - 40% speed decrease and 100% miss chance for 3 seconds.
Ice Blast - 50% speed decrease for 4 seconds.
- Flash is without a doubt the best summoner spell for Nunu behind Exhaust. With flash you can do various things. You can escape from confrontations with ease. You can use flash to flash through various walls depending on their size. This will take some practice to get used to. You can also use flash as a offensive spell by doing the various combo's below.
