INVINCIBLE NASUS TOP
Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
The enigmatic creature known as Nasus came to the League from a faraway world, and served as part of a vast and learned desert empire. There he was a respected and enlightened individual, having been made the Keeper of the Great Library. However, he was also part of a race of animalistic creatures that served as the rulers and protectors of the people. Unfortunately, there were others of his kind that believed they were more than protectors. They were under the egotistical delusion that they had ascended to become gods. War on Nasus's world was never more than a breath away, as these deluded others sought to enslave the people and establish a totalitarian sovereignty. In the midst of a heated battle, just as Nasus was about to slay his treacherous brother Renekton, he was pulled through the cosmos to a summoning circle in Runeterra.
At first angered that he had been taken just as he was about to cripple the enemies of his people, Nasus' advanced intellect won out when he heard the pleas of mercy from the summoners. He learned that Runeterra was also filled with its own brand of injustice. This danger was no less threatening than what he had fought against at home, and champions were needed to protect the people of this world. Heeding the call, Nasus chose to take his place in the League of Legends, knowing that his brothers and sisters would carry on the fight back home. These days, he is the Curator of the Sands, feeling most at home in the crumbling ruins of the Shurima Desert. However, recent disturbing news has reached the Keeper's ears - rumors that perhaps his brother had not in fact been left behind. If this were the case, the destruction of Renekton would quickly become Nasus' main priority, before this world too faces the threads of his brother's forked-tongue and endless ambition.
The Curator of the Sands, though contemplative, is not to be trifled with.
Hello my name is Chavali and this is my second guide on MobaFire and it is on one of my favorite champions Nasus. Nasus is a unique champions that doesnt need items for damage but simply needs to last hit with his Siphoning Strike allowing you to build almost full tank items and still destroy the enemy squishys :D. Please dont troll downvote or if you have another Nasus guide... this guide took me time and effort to make and i dont want it ruined for no reason at all.
+near impossible to kill with ult
+not item reliant
-needs good farm
-kited easily without proper masteries+runes
Greater Mark of Armor Penetration
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist
Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed
For marks I take greater mark of desolation because 90% of your damage is physical damage and if your enemy does not have any armor it makes you hit them even harder.
For my seals i prefer Greater Seal of Armor because 9 times out of 10 you will be facing a opponent in top lane that does mainly physical damage.
You have some choice in glyphs but I prefer Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist because in my build i have less magic resist than armor and this helps. However some other viable options are Greater Glyph of Scaling Mana Regeneration so you can spam your skills a little bit more. Greater Glyph of Cooldown Reduction can also be usefull but i have not personally tried this.
