Runes/Masteries

With my runes I aim for some early game defense with armor and HP plus some Magic Resist Per. Level because usually in a solo top lane you wont be going against many magic damage champions. I also get some Armor Penetration to aid in farming. With my masteries I go a 21-9-0 build so that i have some more early game damage which my runes lack while making sure to take the armor, magic resist, and health regen in defense.

Items

-Mobility,Magic Resist, and Tenacity is all good on Nasus

-Nasus's best item it gives him outstanding damage works great with his Q Siphoning Strike and adds some movement speed and tankieness.

-This makes Nasus a lot tankier and helps solve his mana trouble plus it has a nice aura.

-This pretty much is what makes Nasus un-killable it add MR Armor and an amazing passive

-This gives Nasus a lot of damage and the life steal goes well with his passive Soul Eater

-This is where nasus gets a majority of his attack spped it adds good damage and this combined with runes masteries and his E Spirit Fire can shred through incredible amounts of armor even Rammus needs to watch out.

Playstyle

I play Nasus as a solo top tanky DPS champion. He excels at farming,pushing and engages very well. He bursts squish's down really well and can shred tanks and tanky champions. As Nasus you are going to want to focus on farming A LOT and split pushing and backdooring. When engaging in a team fight make sure to use his W Wither on their DPS Carry because it not only slows but slows their attack speed by 35%. That also goes well with the passive of Frozen Heart which slows attack speed down by 20% to every champion on the enemy team within an aura. He is very tanky so try to tank up a lot of the damage for your carry's ans supports.
