Introduction

Welcome to my nasus guide which is all about attack but if youve never played nasus before you might quite like going to the nasus tank of the sands guide.


Guide Top

Runes

Ive chose these runes just to boost your attack of corse because thats what this guide is about. The extra armour penetration is just what you need


Guide Top

Masteries

You need to get that siphoning strike up early if you want to increse its attack because remember every kill, not hit you get, you gain 3 attack to siphoning strike making it a very useful spell late game just for a great finish. Dont forget that all important ultimate nasus has, it can save you and work well in team battles. But remember dont waste it!


Guide Top

Summoner Spells

I chose both these for a quick get away with ghost or an all important drop in with teleport. Dont forget ghost can be used offensivly aswell just for a nice kill.


Guide Top

Items

I chose these items because trinity force which is a great all rounder for nasus and the bloodthirster for more all important damage and life steal. Remember the phantom dancers they are such great... big...items. If you know what i mean ;)


Guide Top

Team Work

Right now Nasus great team player get his moves just at the right place at the right time it can change a team battle very quickly. He works well with ninja champs like kennen akali and shen and a couple tanks like sion or even cho gath if built proporly.


Guide Top

Farming

Remeber nasus is a great farmer if you need gold late game he can just use good old spirit fire to kill whole waves of minions.


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

Pros:
Well a great team player
Good at some 1 vs 1 but not always dempending on champ eg. jax
Great farmer
Cons:
Can be beaten early game to make hard for late game
Not a great jungler for a leech life
If can try to avoid 1 vs 1 with most assassins and some tanks


Guide Top

Skill Sequence

Ive chosen this just because its the best way to go with nasus you can try other things to most suit the situation your in but i will always advise getting siphoning strike first unless absoloutly nessecery.


Guide Top

Creeping / Jungling

Only thing you have to know here is dont jungle too early or it can lead to disastarous things like low lvl or dying from ganks or even dying from monsters (if your stupid). But jungling late game is useful but only for golem because nasus dominates minions so kill those because you get gold, xp and you help your team (just slightly).


Guide Top

Summary

Well here you have it follow this and become a great nasus player good luck all.
