Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
hey guys this is my build for Nautilus Titan of the depths. in my opinion he is really good tank and is super hard to kill if played. so i am going to try my hardest to help you get there with this build.
i choose the rune i have because they help with reducing damage and making him have exceptional early game advantage. i choose Greater Quintessences of Desolation because the do help with some damage output but if your looking for better survive ability and better solo laneing ability i would go with Greater Quintessences of fortitude. For marks i choose Greater Marks of Desolation so you can at least get through some of the armor on the enemy champs so your not just a walking barrier. my seals are Greater Seals of Resilience they help his armor out and also give him a better early game survive ability. my marks Greater Marks of Warding it helps with his magic resist and AP champs will barley hurt you early game witch can contribute to some Early game kills. all these runes will help you make you better early game and late game but provide to some great protection and with them it will take the whole team to bring you down.
my Masteries are 0/27/3 i choose these because the provide very good defense extra health and health regeneration. also the 3 points in utility will help so your not out of the fights as long.
my items i choose help Nautilus excel with resisting melee and Ranged Champs. philosopher stone help give Nautilus some health regeneration and manna regeneration since he uses a lot of manna. the heart of gold will provide a some gold generation which can help bring your items to you faster which can give you better gaming advantages over the opposing team. frozen heart can help provide you with getting your CD's back faster and provides you with a nice amount of armor. mercury treads help against AP champs and CC's but you can exchange with ninja tabi depending on what the enemy team has more of. Aegis of the legion helps provide you and your team better defense against AP champions. Warmogs will help you with health regeneration and health with can make you harder to kill. Randuin's Omen helps with a number of this for one you get a good amount of health armor and health regeneration, the passives of the item one gives some more CD Reduction and the other one helps with survive ability by slowing attacker movement and attk speed, its active affect can stop other ad carries a in surrounding area's. shurely's reverie help with your regeneration and CD's and some health.
i choose heal and exhaust heal help with team and lane survive ability and exhaust can help with more Q shot landings also helps prevent escapes.
i find it best of you W Q E i say this because w shields u and allows your basic attks to heal an AOE (Area of effect) damage your q drags you towards your target and is great for initiation, e does and AOE also slow them down if you can ult them to stop one of there people from running and also help stop some of the other champs in between.
all in all i find nautilus to be a very good and probably one of the best tanks i have played so far and hope this guide can help you play him better.
