This is a tank/dps build for Nasus.

You can pretty much rotflstop people early game with the 0/21/9 mastery and defense runes.

For skill selection you should max out siphoning strike first, then spirt fire, should at least have wither level 1 or 2, then max out your ult.

You can go either with Merc Treads or Ninja Tabi for movement. I prefer Merc treads when the other team has a lot of CC.

Going with manamune early allows you to farm up your mana so you don't have to rely on mana regen items/runes and with the 2% mana converted to AD you will get around 70 AD with the above items plus the 20 AD without the passive so that's 90 ad that's almost two BF swords (not bad) MOBA doesn't calculate this to the damage shown above.

Innervting Locket (or sould shroud instead)is a nice item to go with your siphoning strike UNIQUE Aura 20 health and 9 mana per/5 since you aren't going to be dieing this will be very helpful in big team fights 10 percent reduced CD

Banshee Veilis pretty obvious for the health/mana and blocking one negative spell

Trinity Force or just sheen depends if you can afford it late game

Atmas Impaler 45+ armor and 18% crit so paired with TF your auto attacks hit a lot harder. Then you got the passive 2% of your health is converted to AD so in this build that equates to roughly 64 AD just a little more than a BF sword.

so if you add in Manamunes and Atmas passives you are looking at total of 300 AD

So you end up with a Nasus who can tank/support/DPS

It appears moba was way off on how much AD this build is.....it's 300 AD when you max out manamune (note my runes are different than the ones I listed, no AD/physical attack runes were added)

now to further increased your damage output you can instead of getting armor and MR runes you can get attack damage per level and keeping the 0/21/9 mastery or you can keep the defense runes and go 21/0/9 in your mastery......either way you will be hitting hard while having some decent survivability.
