and it's my first guide so pls leave a feedback coment
Pros / Cons
AP Nasus vs AD Nasus
*Has high aoe damage with E and R
*Harder to farm Q than AD Nasus (Still i've made it to 500 farm)
*tankier than ad nasus
*Less Lifesteal and healing
*Q still hurts
*May turn an enemy gank into a double kill
*E means TONS OF DAMAGE
* E and R damage wasted
* Easier to farm Q
* More lifesteal
* Q only hurts at late game
Q Siphoning Strike
Being AP nasus doesn't means you shouldn't farm it, you still can do tons of damage with this.
Helps you and your team to escape,chase certain targets and secure some ganks or kills.
E Spirit Fire
This skill is the main source of damage in early game and makes your enemy suffer for every cs they get, and also does a lot of damage that could help you in a 2 v 1 or to push your lane
RFury of the Sands
DEM AOE SO OP.. Using this you become a tanky fiddlesticks, everybody starts running away from you, also it does health percentage damage so the heaviest tanks like and are the firsts to escape
Play as you were ad nasus avoiding pokes and farming your Q but maxing E first so you can poke and push a bit so you dont play in turret and loose farm.
If you're against a true damage champ like or buy a Giant's Belt and Ninja Tabi on your first re.
If you are against a high ad burst/poke champion like or or gankplank buy Glacial Shroud, Ninja Tabi and/or Giant's Belt
If you are having trouble farming your Q or you need more sustain you should try giving it 1 or 2 upgrade points more
*Mid game* (20 mins)
Your Q should have 250-350 stacks if you did it well and also you should be farming entire minion waves with only an E so your aoe should be op already
buy abysall, sunfire or liandry's in the order you choose but you must get them all if you want to do the max amount of aoe damage possible and try to participate in all the team fights you can since you will always have the 5 assists.
REMEMBER TO KEEP FARMING YOUR Q and if you are winning your lane don't be afraid to push your lane since you could get a double kill just by doing R, E and Q combo
*LATE GAME* DEM OP FARM AND AOE
NOW IS WHEN YOU DEMOSTRATE AP NASUS IS OP
in team fights try to poke all you can ( I say poke but 2 of them and a Q may kill the adc)
and chase the main targets, apc and adc but dont forget to protect yours.
Nasus Q and E are too damn good for pushing so try doing split push or backdooring
The defense masteries are the regular for any tank but i chose to use the ad masteries in the offense tree to make easier the Q farming
I like starting with Doran's Ring for the mana regen it has bout if you are against an AA poke champion like you could start with Doran's Shield or Cloth Armor and 5 Health Potion
It gives you magic penetration that goes sweet with your Fury of the Sands dealing a percent of your enemies max hp so imagine how much damage it'll deal to a or a only by staying near of them
Magic resist, ap and aoe magic reduction makes Sunfire Cape, Fury of the Sands and Spirit Fire
MOAR AOE dps damage, HP and armor.
