Introduction

I love playing Nasus as a tank, but after not playing him for a long time, I went to look for my favourite Nasus build, and it wasn't there anymore! (It was top rated when I had last seen it) Because of that, I decided to rebuild it for myself and anyone else wanting it, I don't remember all of the items but if you tell me, I'll add them. Sorry for not being able to give credit to the awesome guy who originally made it :D

Items

Depending on the game, you can replace:
Mercury's Treads with Ninja Tabi if they have a lot of auto attack champions.
Warmog's Armor with Force of Nature if they have a lot of Magic damage.

I don't remember the other replacements, but good items are:
Thornmail
Randuin's Omen
Frozen Heart
Banshee's Veil
Atma's Impaler

You can switch around the items after Aegis of the Legion depending on what's going on in the game and how confident you are.

Summary

Thanks for reading! And if you know the who originally made this guide, I could give him credit for it, maybe even convince him to re-make it! Also, I changed the skill sequence up a bit, you don't really need more than 3 points in your Siphoning Strike to get most last hits and I feel Wither and Spirit Fire have better overall team usefulness (level 5 Wither is basically a kill on a dude if you have someone else with you).
