Introduction

Welcome!

The Intro
Hello and welcome to my Nasus jungle guide, everything will be explained as you read, I hope to make this as in-depth as I can, so please read everything if you would like to get into the mind of a Nasus jungler. This guide will also help those who see a Nasus in the jungle and learn how to shut him down.

Runes

I take 6 of these because they provide a good base amount of armor penetration to go along with your damage. Also because the only other armor penetration you normally build is either The Black Cleaver or Last Whisper.
Three of both of these provide you with a good amount of early game damage along with a much faster clear time.
Both of these are great options. I tend to like to gank mid early to start the APC snowballing so the Flat MR negates more damage early on then the Scaling ones.

Masteries

Offense
[*] Sorcery Sorcery is a much better mastery than Alacrity for Nasus in my opinion. The extra 4% attack speed is nice for a lot of Junglers like Warwick or Jarvan, but Nasus really only Auto-Attacks when his Siphoning Strike is on CD.
[*] Deadliness The Damage per-level is nice. While not Major, it gives some better late game presence.
[*] Weapon Expertise This is a great Mastery, 8% Armor penetration may not seem like a lot, but this will help your Q do more damage to champions, since you spirit fire makes monsters have NEGATIVE armor, making them take increased damage from physical attacks.
