Introduction to how to pwn as Nasus Jungle

Nasus right now in Season 3 is one of the best Junglers for sure.

Nasus has become more popular after his recent buffs to his ultimate and Siphoning Strike.

He is good early and mid game. His Late game is WONDERFUL. One of the best late games going if you manage to farm your Q that is.

I play him in the jungle because he is easily countered top and I only play ranked so people can counter you easily there.

The cycle of life continues.. we will leave, they will die (Best Nasus Quote)

Nasus' Nemesis = Renekton

Personally if the enemy picks Renekton, I always pick Nasus jungle. Because Nasus counters the **** out of Rene.

In this forum article debate, more people agree that Nasus will beat Renekton if he manages to farm his Q properly.

I think its essential to rush Aegis after spirit stone and boots. Why? Because Aegis/Bulwark early game is great for team fights for that little bit of extra stats for you and your team. Some people may wonder why I pick Warmogs: It's nerfed, but it's still a strong defensive item in the current health stacking meta and BOTRK is going to get hit by the nerf bat in a little while.

Jungling Route

The route I go is = Wolves, Ancient Golem , Wraiths, Lizards (If lanes are pushed after Lizard then I will go gank a lane), If lane isn't pushed I finish with Big Golem and then recall.

Nasus' ganks are strong since his slow is very powerful and his damage from Q is intense.

Now the buffs to Siphoning Strike have made jungle Nasus viable because his damage is intense, this helps ganking extremely. He picks up many kills for the team through ganks.

Early Game

Nasus usually tries to farm up his Siphoning Strike and make plays with Wither during the early game.

There are other junglers more viable then Nasus early game thats why you have to hope by farming the jungle you can emerge as a late game beast. Hope your team doesn't suck.

Nasus is extremely good at zoning in teamfights for starters. wither is used to help peel for your AD carry by putting it on whoever is diving them.

Ranked Play as Nasus Jungle

This shows even though I was building full tank that I nearly did as much damage as the carries. SO even though Nasus is tanky his damage is beastly too.
