Introduction

Greetings, this is my second build in Mobafire and after testing Nautilus in the jungle, gotta say he is useless. There could be someone who is faster and can deal nice decent amount of damage. Same for the mid area, there could be someone doing better AP damage, though he works great against Fizz, Kassa if you build him tanky. to prevent them from getting kills. I went against Fizz a couple of times and got like 3 kills cause they went to other lane, but managed to kill them 6 times, which at the end of the match he only had those 3 kills with 9 deaths. Didn't allowed him to farm either, he was being so aggressive poking and I just didn't care, cause he couldn't do much damage.

Anyway, but I prefer Full Tank Nautilus support. At this point Nautilus is not banned, and he should be since he is worst than Blitzcrank. I've went against Blitz before and let me tell you that he is so easy to kill, just don't use your Dredge Line. Let him pull your and you just Titan's Wrath, AA (for the stun) and as he turns around to escape, Dredge Line and Riptide and of course have your ADC nearby to deal some damage and get the kill. Nautilus by far offers better protection to the ADC and is better at feeding your own ADC than Blitz is. You can even dive into the turret and stun the enemies and have your ADC finish them as you take turret damage that is not even much thanks to your Titan's Wrath.

I like this Tank more than any other champion out there. I suck at ADC, I just can't get the mechanics behind them as they are uber squishie and even with their escapes they are. For an example using Nautilus versus them, they literally have no escapes, especially if you are using Depth Charge.

Well, anyway, this guide focus on how you can play Nautilus and harrass the other team.

MARKS
There are no better runes for a tank support than this. You don't need any damage or anything else, you can pretty much depend more on taking damage to help your ADC. You'll need to be constantly harrassing their ADC so your ADC can outfarm them and push the lane later.

SEALS
More Armor for the same reason above.

GLYPHPS
You could get Greater Glyph of Magic Resist if you are facing such as Nidalee, or other AP Support, but these are still great for later game.

QUINTESSENCES
These runes grants you +78 Health, with the masteries that increases a percent you get more than that allowing you take more damage early game and be able to do that harrass early game to help your ADC do better.

These are the masteries and they are pretty much obvious why I chose them, but I want to explain why I'm using one point for Summoner's Wrath.

WHY!?
Why would you go support without using utility? Well, there is a simple reason behind this, Nautilus becomes an unstoppable machine once you get RoA and Spirit Visage, When you obtain Randuin's Omen your team will love you and hate you, cause you'll be deal a lot of damage that taking a kill or maybe 10 of them would be too easy, so warn them that you are building some AP, 80 early game and nothing more, the rest is health, armor, mana, MR, but still you'll manage to kill champions.

Items

Recently I've discovered that buying Thornmail after Spirit Visage makes you amazing. You can have any ADC kill themselves by just attacking you. After you get Randuin's Omen, you can kill a fed Nasus or Volibear. Hell, I once went to a Nexus on my own and they killed me, but it took them so long that they had like 25-30% of their life thanks to Thornmail and that insane amount of armor. I didn't even built Warmog's Armor, with that maybe I would of survive and they would of all died by just attacking me. Those who attacked me were Ashe, Teemo, Nasus and Volibear.
