Threats to Nasus with this build
|Pantheon||Even that he got lots of poke with his Q, it's not very hard to outtrade damage with him. Remember, he got his passive that blocks your next attack. Make sure he doesn't get a chance earlygame, then he will be useless lategame.|
My Ign is Von Angelo, currently Platinum 5. I got lots of accounts, where I main Nasus toplane. The reason to I play Nasus is because of his amazing sustain on his Q.
I havn't been playing Nasus that much on my main account lately.
In this guide I will try to teach you how to lane against multiple champions. I will show you how to stack your Q the best way.
Sorry if you don't understand my guide. My english isn't that good ;-).
As I would say, he's an afk-farming champion who's job is to make pressure on lanes. As Nasus you shouldn't make teamfights midgame, but splitpush toplane and botlane. Make sure to keep vision in enemy jungle when you splitpush.
When you are in your laning phase, you have to keep focusing on stacking minions. Try to focus on stacking, and don't wait for ganks. You don't need ganks, if you just farm under tower.
If you know you can control your stacking, then ping your jungle back if he is coming to gank. Cause if you are getting ganks, the enemy jungler will come for you. And you don't need that for 6 stacks on a kill. That's not worth if you keep dies on ganks.
Between level 1 and level 6 is all about stacking, and not fighting. Wait till you got about 150-200 stacks before you fight 1 vs 1. Then you can outtrade almost everyone.
Before you fight - be sure you got enough stacks, and enough items (don't be stuck with 2k gold before you fight).
If you are unlucky that the enemy team picks a counterpick against you, don't worry. There's a way to solve that in laning phase.
I'll make a list with counterpicks - and how to play against them.
[*] Darius - Farm under tower, and be sure you don't get grabbed by his E.
[*] Rumble - Be patient, farm under tower and try not to fight him. Freeze the lane a bit out of your tower-range.
[*] Riven - If she ever use her Q to engage on you while you got a while creep-wawe around you, simply use your W-E-Q to make lots of damage on her. She will also tank lots of minion-damage, and for a longer time cause of your wither. But don't get greedy. Riven is really strong.
[*] Lee Sin - Don't get in too close range for his Q because of his huge early damage. Stay near your tower all the time, and whenever he uses his Q-W combo to poke you and get out again, use your W if you are under tower. Make sure he takes so much damage as possible and you got more hp than him.
