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.
This build is a tank/dps Nunu great for support. This build is not ment for killing but maximizes the support for better team play. The armour and magic resist makes you a viable tank, taking little damage with dent health. The slows allow Nunu to freeze enemies almost in place while your teammates can nuke the hell out of them. The summoner abilities can either be played offensively or defensively which lowers Nunu's death rate as well. Nunu can solo in a lane and get kills with this build also by jsut eating and wearing down their health with slows. Overall, great surviveability, great support and I believe just enough killing potential.
Nunu is a great support team up with a ganker or nuker and make sure to get your ninja tabi, then your thornmail. For abilities get Iceball first, then consume (referred to as bite), and finally your run. Then alternate between iceball and bite until you can get your ultimate. Nunu can slowly wear down his oppenents with his iceball then when they're low enough slow and send in the nuker to kill. WARNING: until level 6 one should play a harassing style with Nunu and not get too greedy use his bite to keep up your health and stay in the lane aslong as possible.
After reaching level 6 your levels should really only go to iceball and your bite keeping your survivability and giving your friends the chance to kill. Getting your Crystal Scepter improves your slow and improves your tank like qualaties. This is ahead in priority above frozen heart which should be your next item. The middle is where Nunu can dominate flash in slow your enemies and have them virtually not move. This gives a nuker ample time to kill them before reinforcements come. Then back off and keep going. Also, you can gank teams aslong as you have good gankers. Nunu can rush in take damage then use his ultimate to slow and deal great damage leaving the rest of your oppenents health to be picked off by your friends.
Finish off your abilities getting your run and ultimate up to date. Get Force Of Nature to really step into a tank role, well finish your item build will Zhonya's Ring for damage (If you get the gold). In late game you should team gank with NuNu and ace the team off. This allows you to push and ultimatly win.
Nunu can also solo by slowly wearing down his oppenent himself then spamming iceballs well attacking with melee's to kill. Then, simply dropping down to gank the other lane for support. But, generally this build is better with one ganker in your lane.
This is my first build posted so be free to criticize and hope I helped. Thank you.
