This is my first build here and i just wanted to share a way to play nasus that i dont see much but works very well for me. This build is based on getting your siphoning strike off as much as possible while having the survivability to stick around in the fight.
Please give me feedback on what you think of this guide and please try it!
Who is Nasus??
The enigmatic creature known as Nasus came to the League from a faraway world, and served as part of a vast and learned desert empire. There he was a respected and enlightened individual, having been made the Keeper of the Great Library. However, he was also part of a race of animalistic creatures that served as the rulers and protectors of the people. Unfortunately, there were others of his kind that believed they were more than protectors. They were under the egotistical delusion that they had ascended to become gods. War on Nasus's world was never more than a breath away, as these deluded others sought to enslave the people and establish a totalitarian sovereignty. In the midst of a heated battle, just as Nasus was about to slay his treacherous brother Renekton, he was pulled through the cosmos to a summoning circle in Runeterra.
At first angered that he had been taken just as he was about to cripple the enemies of his people, Nasus' advanced intellect won out when he heard the pleas of mercy from the summoners. He learned that Runeterra was also filled with its own brand of injustice. This danger was no less threatening than what he had fought against at home, and champions were needed to protect the people of this world. Heeding the call, Nasus chose to take his place in the League of Legends, knowing that his brothers and sisters would carry on the fight back home. These days, he is the Curator of the Sands, feeling most at home in the crumbling ruins of the Shurima Desert. However, recent disturbing news has reached the Keeper's ears - rumors that perhaps his brother had not in fact been left behind. If this were the case, the destruction of Renekton would quickly become Nasus' main priority, before this world too faces the threads of his brother's forked-tongue and endless ambition.
The Curator of the Sands, though contemplative, is not to be trifled with.
the runes are what i like to have but you can customize them based on your play style.
Greater Mark of Desolation i use like the armor pen for the extra damage it gives you
i like having the attack speed rune because you get in more swings during the fights.
just more attack speed
greater quintessence of desolation just more armor pen for the extra damage.
farming is a HUGE part of nasus as a champ. make sure to last hit minions with your Q all game long to build it up into lots of damage. Also, make sure to use your E on the minions to help farm or on enemy champs to harass as much as possible.
You need to start off with ] and get straight to farming from level 1. then you want to put 1 point into wither so you can slow enemy champs.
then max out your spirit fire to harass and farm.
after that you max out your siphoning strike followed by wither.
during team fights you want to utilize all of your abilities. nasus does not have any useless abilities so use them all. Start off by trying to get you in the middle of the fight. however fights hardly stay in once place so predict where the fight is leading.
after that you want to ult and charge in, then just start using your Q on everybody. If you built this build you should have a short cd and be able to dish out lots of damage.
after the fight if there are enemies running or your team has to run don't forget to use your
shurelya's because of the speed boost. also use your wither to chase them down or run away.
So that's my nasus build. Its a very fun build that i like to use and almost always do good with. keep in mind that this is not a tank build but an off tank bruiser build.
hopefully you try the build and have fun Qing people to death. comments and suggestions are appreciated!
