Hey guys, Here is my build for Nasus. Im used to pick him in blind pick, and after the last update nasus has become insane. His Q can now be spammed laning on cd without being oom, wich makes him a more terrible farm dush then ever ! I just checked some builds here and I must say Im pretty against those. 2 Items I definitely ban out of my build :
Trinity Force, and Bloodthirty.
Simple reason : NASUS DOESNT NEED DAMAGE TO BE A MONSTRUOUS PENTAKILL MACHINE !
I've tested this build against many "OP COUNTER BRA" and it reveals a very simple bet :
If the opponent, who ever he plays, lets u farm JUST ON LEVEL ONE, this is a free win - well your team has to not OVERLOOSE, but hey, thats kinda rare -. First of all, the massive CDR I have on lvl 1 is 20%. SF is way more stacked untill lvl 9 then any other build does. I usually steal to the jungler the 2 little wolves and minions from blue, just to be already 4 stacks up while the jungler still exp lvl 2 after blue.
Usual skills and tips I think good Nasus has to understand :
If he farms perfectly with sf, he can trade (full HP) on lvl 3-4, get an esay first blood if the jungler comes. After that, he will punish any single opponent trying to trade.
If you are picking Nasus First Pick WADDUP and meet a decent Teemo, Garen, Vladimir, Rumble, RIven, Lee-Sin(even if this one aint that tough on lvl 1-3) Remember you CANT TRADE, focus on the farm, dont RUSH in Garen for one farm. If u manage to push your lanes, remember that the jungle is a great spot for stacking sf (ghosts 5+ wolves 4+ buffs 4 Golems 3) while not getting constant poke or a nasty gank.
The main real Item is Frozen Heart : 20% CDR (HEY 40% ON LVL 8 GG) armor, mana and debuff. Rushing this item is nevertheless stupid if ur facing some AP top already rough on u.
I dont really need to explain the other items : tanky, build smartly, (MR for AP, Armor for AD, HEALTH (warmog can be doubled) AND ABSOLUTELY NO DAMAGE. With this farming build I usually get 200 minions at 20 minutes, SF hitting at 750 on AP/AD carries, 2,4 cd (not 4 secs Oo) and... 2 options : you're team has lost 15-3, lost all intern turrell and over fed the mid, and its gonna be hard to carry (but its still winable) or its a decent score (like 10-18) for the other team, and you can rush in the teamfight, 2 shots the carries, then keep farming. (the third option is very frustrating, your team has won on all lanes and its a surrender when they see for the first time your damage) One of the best combination remains the Homeguard TP combo, wich gives tremendous chirurgical hits if the support wards correctly.
