Threats to Nunu with this build
|Mordekaiser||Mordekaiser will rip you to pieces. Try not to choose Nunu against him. Avoid this match at any cost. If you ever had the worst chance to face a Mordekaiser then you should never attack him but eat all the poke. And, wait for your jungler's ganks. Build MR. Go for a spirit visage.|
|Vladimir||Same for Mordekaiser, Vladimir is one of your worst nightmares, he can avoid your ultimate if he timed the blood pool at the right time. Just consume as many minions as possible, farm and stay away from him, try not to get harassed a lot and die a lot. Build MR. Go for a spirit visage.|
Hi there. It's DOD Fluffy here and this is my first guide here in mobafire. I am a gold Nunu player and I think that's Nunu is capable of doing crazy things with a proper organized team. He's a pretty fun champion to play and I really recommend him. This guide will be covering on how to play Nunu in the top lane. This guide will not be the bully kind of Nunu, you'll be playing defensive Nunu, eating poke and farming as much minions as possible. Your kit will allow you to outfarm and or get the same farm as your opponent. I hope you enjoy this guide and find it useful and fulfilling your needs on how to play Nunu.
Pros / Cons
- Amazing lane sustain with Consume.
- Very tanky when full build.
- Can receive a lot of hits and still stand strong.
- Amazing AP scaling in both his Ice Blast and his ultimate Absolute Zero.
- Can kite enemy laners easily.
- Can Juke enemy spells easily.
- Can run from a harsh situation easily.
- Ganks are not a big threat for him.
- Escaping is one of Nunu's finest pros.
- Easy to learn.
- Slows till no sunshine.
- Absolute Zero can change the tide of a fight.
- Absolute zero can be interrupted easily by any kind of knock ups, silence or any other soft CCs.
- Enemies can flash away from his ultimate quiet easily.
- His ultimate takes practice to pull off right without getting interrupted, needs good positioning.
Mainly. The way I play Nunu is going for a hybrid penetration runes. It gives me the damage I need to withdraw with the opponent. I don't really recommend going for a tanky rune page like full armor and magic resist cause you're not going to be doing damage in team fights and or when dueling with your enemy. You can always change this rune page with AP page but that's just me who goes for hybrid penetration on Nunu. It helps you against tanky enemies.
Here you guys will think that I am stupid for sacrificing all the points on defensive tree but I would say that you're wrong and it's pretty strong with Nunu, along with the build and consume you'll be able to nearly suck each poke and or harassment you've received and come back with full health like it's nothing happened with the help of consume.
You should either start Spirit Visage if against an AP caster and or start frozen heart against an AD. You can always change the warmog to sunfire if needed or you feel like going all offensive. You should always get this boots enchantment and or homeguard any other boots enchantment is not really recommended.
Max Consume first.
Ice Blast second.
Blood Boil third.
Get absolute zero whenever it's available.
You'll have to max Consume because remember, you're tanky, you're going to be playing as a tank for the team. Consume will help you survive in the laning phase against nearly everyone.
Flash for escaping harsh situations like the usual or using flash to channel absolute zero in a middle of a teamfight. That spell will do you good.
Teleport for going back to lane or joining team fights.
Teleport and Flash is a pretty good spells combination and is used mostly to play in the top lane.
I don't really recommend playing Nunu in ranked plays without having a duo with you. Because people going to whine about you picking Nunu top. But you can surely beat the heck out of your opponent and carry the game to victory if played right and with a knowledgeable teammate.
Team Work/Team Fights
You should always assist your teammates when needed. Nunu can be pretty potent in surprise ganks and can run to lanes quiet fast with his Blood Boil.[/color]
In teamfights your objective is to either peel for your ADC or focus there ADC and show him the true annoyance of tank Nunu.
- You should try using Absolute Zero inside a bush. It's not detected by the enemies while channeling.
- You should always fight near minions. They will help you to get your health back in the laning phase and trade quiet well with the enemy laner.
- In this build always focus on farming other than harassing your teammate.
You should jump in a custom game and learn how to farm with Nunu because you're not getting any additional AD in this build guide and then try it on normal.[
I hope you enjoyed reading my first Nunu guide here. And, I hope you a good luck using him in the field of justice!
Escaping a gank with tank Nunu is easy and you'll be able to see it on the video and I'll be getting a kill in the process.
