Hello league players from around the world. Have you ever been looking for a champ that can solo top well? How bout a decent tank? How about 14% passive life steal? My love, my hope, and my main Nasus the curator of the sands is your... dog. Nasus is brawler like no other. There's just a catch... you, and I mean this in the up most sincerity, MUST farm his q . Keep reading and I will share what i can about Nasus, the curator of the sands.
Now... before we get to anything else, lets start with the most important aspect of Nasus, his Q. His Q is named siphoning strike and is scaled of total AD (including base AD) and when it lands a killing blow on ANYTHING, the ability gains 3 bonus physical damage. (And when i say anything, i mean anything that can be attacked) So think of it this way... if you've been successfully farming your Q for 15-20 minutes, always assuming you've been last hitting minions, you can have 150-200 q farm. That means your hitting people for 300-400 damage. And if you get someone who's scared of you letting you farm away, you can even farm up 402 q farm (my personal record btw) and its just ridiculous. You are hitting 600 damage on turrets and people by roughly level 15. However, 200 q farm will also suffice in any game because your doing 400 damage every 4 sec. Its Nasus reason for being, that's why i take it at level 1 and max it as soon as possible
Sometimes I like taking summoner heal and you have someone chase you while your jungler sits in a bush waits for you to ult. (MAKE SURE U HAVE A LOT OF MANA FOR THIS!) When the enemy is about to run away or has decided to dive you use wither and if you are low ult and summoner heal. Then your jungle should be getting on to the other solo top and it'll be a 2v1 with 2 decently healthy people.
There's also a combo that is fun to use. What you do is you hit you enemies with your wither then spirit fire them ahead of where they are but still in the ring. Then you rip them up with auto attacks and you siphoning strike while they have reduced armor.
As sustaining as Nasus' passive can be, I DO NOT recommend trying to lean on it in a gank. However, if your q is farmed,then it might be ok to engage, just make sure you have a team at your back!
Nasus becomes stronger the longer laning phase goes. So if you can ask your teammates to refrain from damaging towers to less than half health, that'll give you time to get 150-200 q farm. (depending on the enemy)
DO NOT spam your W and E abilities early game. Your W should ONLY be used when you are ganking, getting ganked, or SURE you can kill someone solo.
In a gank, always slow the AD champ unless. If both ganker and top are ad, then slow who ever is closer. The reason for targeting an ad champ with wither is because it will not only slow down their movement, but there attack speed as well.
If mid doesn't need or want blue buff and you are on blue team, ask your jungler if you can have it, the CD reduction and mana regen will allow you to spam your Q and mass up minion farm. Also, after a successful gank, you and your jungler can try and steal the blue teams blue buff if you are on purple.
Pros / Cons
14% life steal at level 1
his Q is an amazing ability late game
Very strong late game
Your Q can be used on towers
Your wither when maxed slows movement and attack damage by 95%!!!
Weak early game
Very hard to keep minion wave off the turret early game
spamming spells like your W or E will cause a huge loss of mana and constantly making you oom
Thanks for reading!
Hey guys... if you ACTUALLY read this far... thank you. This is my second build (my first one was kinda a pathetic ad Nasus build) and I appreciate you reading. I would love feed back and appreciate any up votes and would be interested for the reason of any down votes (but I'm not gonna force you to comment to vote).
