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.
Nasus is naturally tanky, so having AD Carry runes and masteries on Nasus while building full tank you will not only be able to do a lot of damage, but you will be able to tank the enemy team for your team. I usually play Nasus top lane solo so i can get my Q all farmed up so it can deal a lot of damage if an enemy advances onto you. Make sure if your jungler is sitting there waiting to gank your lane, when he/she advances, slow your target. Not only does your slow stop them from moving so fast it also slows their attack speed. In team fights use your slow on the AD Carry on their team so your team doesn't need to suffer taking a lot of damage from their team. Do not try and use your slow on the AP mid because he/she can just use his/her abilities to be able to deal a lot of damage to your team, try to use your slow on them if you are trying to catch them in a chase. Having a slow and ghost to catch up is the ultimate way to catch anyone on their team. (unless there is a Master Yi, he can just use his ultimate and counter your slow)
Anyway guys this is my build guide to how to build AD Carry / Tank Nasus. Check back later for any more guides that I will be posting in the future.
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 for 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."
