Chapter 1

Hello guys its my first guide in mobafire I was doing guides on some forums.Just trying out here.I ve played games with nasus with a lot of win,sometimes nasus isnt effective at early game but its the truth nasus is op at late game.When you get trinity force,aegeis of the legion,guardian angel etc.And a ATMA'S IMPALER..


Guide Top

Runes

MARKS:9x armor penetration

SEALS:9x flat armor (not per level)

GLYPHS:9x flat magic resist or 9x magic resist per level

QUINTESSENCE:2x armor penetration 1 flat hp(26 hp) or 3 x armor penetration.

WHY NO CRIT CHANCE?
Cuz nasus isnt crit champ.You always need some defense.You got %15 crit chance with crit marks and crit quintessences.You can have more with full crit rune page.But you will be squishy.I dont recommend critical strike chance.

Items

Aegeis of the Legion:That s bad that gives

Atma's impaler:It is a very good item for nasus even you have like 3.4 k hp.That gives +45 armor and %2 of your hp equal to attack dmg.If you have 3.5 k that makes 70 attack dmg boost.Thats not bad.That also gives armor.

Youmu's blade:If enemy team doesnt makes you overwhelm you can get youmus blade.That gives 20 armor penetration and %20 cooldown reduction.Then you can spam siphoning strike more faster.That hits over 1000 to minions when I complete this build.

Trinity Force:Nasus should have this item.NO WAY!Without it you cant deal much dmg.And +movement speed is cool.Important thing is that boosts your siphoning strike.

Atma's impaler:45 armor +18 crit chance and wtf?%2 of hp equal to attack dmg.That s very nice deal.You will have 4 k hp(with pots) that makes 80 attack dmg.Its good.
MERCURY BOOTS OR NINJA TABI?

Nasus is always getting focused in late game.Cuz when he use ulti that makes enemy team cry.If they always CC you you should get mercury.If there s 3 melee or more get ninja tabi.
BUT if irelia,ashe,nunu can slow you down.If any of them on enemy team get mercury s boots.NEVER get boots of swiftness.trinity force is alredy giving enough movement speed and you got wither.

Pros / Cons

PROS
*very effective against haste champs(warwick,master yi,tyrandemere)
*Can farm very good with spirit fire
*Nasus has the best slow in League of Legends (I think)
*Nasus can deal heavy aoe dmg with his ulti at teamfights
*+magic penetration + armor penetration with spirit fire


CONS
*A bit low dps at early game
*Deals low dmg without trinty force
*You are getting focused usually(even you open ulti)


Guide Top

Masteries

I can say you dont need offense masteries.Defense and utility are better for you.Even more mana regen/5 + hp.


Guide Top

Creeping / Jungling

You should go blue buff at level 7-8.Cuz you need that to farming with spirit fire.Siphoning strike either.Nasus shouldnt jungle.He is very slow at it.He can farm minions more easily.


Guide Top

Skill Sequence

Skill sequence is r-e-w-q.
Fury of The Sands:Awesome ulti.Always open it when you do 5v5.
Spirit Fire:its usable in teamfights and farming minions.I reccommend it first.
Wither:The best slow in lol As I say.
Siphoning Strike:No need to improve it first.do it 1 and 5 level first.Use it on last hitting.I usually do +200 bonus dmg from last hitting.


Guide Top

Team Work

In team fights,You should open your ulti when they are near to you.Do spirit fire also.If there s champ like tyrandemere,tristana do wither on them.That slows them like hell.And then nuke them.

But if enemy team is powerful and you are squishy,get some armor and mr.A guardian angel would be nice.Never sell trinity force for any reason.You can sell doran s shield.
