Hi, I'm derrickthetpt and ive been play nasus all my life. i started in beta around 2004 when the game first came out and i really enjoyed it. this is by far the best way to play nasus ever. be warned though.. you might not like my playstyle because you dont want to ween. however, if you do want to win, you will play aggressive nasus just like me! BTW this is me when i was younger.

im racist.

so the reasoning....

behind my summoner skills is that they are very centered around my very aggressive play. a free ward every 80 seconds never hurt ANYONE. the less wards you have to get, the more money you have for that early game kindlegem.

now with nasus, i know hes a very weak laner, so i build ruby crystal on him so i can tank more hits from both minions and the enemies. usually there will be 2 or maybe even 3 at top when you are playing nasus because you are such a monster at all stages of the game so they will deny you farm. the problem is that nasus is so squishy early game, so you just buy more hp to look alot more tanky. As a result you can go completely aggressive and harass the 2 or 3 enemies out of lane with your Q while you farm with spirit fire. After first buy, you should have kindlegem, boots, saphire crystale, and sage's ring. this is so core and each item synergizes with the other so ****ing well, that i cant believe that none of the high elo players thought of this yet. kindlegem gives you more hp and cdr so you cand completely dominate your lane opponents and the boots saphire crystal and sages ring will help you keep your mana up while you push your lane 1v3 like a boss and helps you become more of a monster mid game. if you get ganked constantly you might think about buying wards, but thats wrong. it just means you dont use your clarvoyance enough for your lane. thats why we got clairvoyance in the first place, TO BE AGGRESSIVE. later int the game i get glacial shroud for the AD and mana and cdr because it is op. i like to finish up my boots of swiftness because you just get kited like hell. then i go for catalyst for even more lane presence and domination. basically once you get your innervating locket... you are a monster. after that i get the rest of my late game items, like nashors tooth, guinsoos and finished frozen heart whos stats are 99 atack damages and 20% cdr and 500 mana powers. by now you should be finished with laning phase at around the 50 minute mark.. this is where your cor items come into play. first i get guinsoos rageblade and then chalice for the most op mana regen in the game. with this build you can practically 1v5 the whole enemy team without a problem. that is with all 7 finished items in your build. there is no alternative to this build as i am the best and most credited.

Unique Skills

Nasus's most unique skill would probably be his D or F key. somehow a summoner from heaven will make you flash your opponents or ghost their stream. its reall powerful

Creeping / Jungling

Jungle Nasus is actually a very hard build to pull off because you must become completely one with the woods. the only trouble you would have with the jungle is when you get to red which in this case you would watch this video on how to deal with lizard buff after you jungle like a boss, you should look to gank top lane against the more op champs like renekton. usually the top lane will be dead at that time and you will be 1v1ing the renekton at top like a boss. of course the whole process should be done in secret. usually you will creep up and GANK HIS ***. it should usually turn out like this.

Team Work

Whenever i go into a game i see my team and i trash talk them to get their morale up hfuusurruhurhruahurr. then when i get all good and wet i carry them to victory. after that i whoop like a stranded baby in a wagon. As Adam would say,

Ranked Play

ranked play is dangerously different. go bot with your ad carry so they can let you farm while they harass.

overall nasus is a ****ing op beast and can beat all the other top combos like a combination of ryze teemo and blitzcrank. as a result you must give him time. at around the 1:31 mark he can become aggressive as **** due to the levels that you got from minions spawning. add me ingame if you want to see my amazing nasus. thank you for reading this guide and please upvote it so more people and agree with me. THANK YOU :D
