Gnar Engage when he's mini gnar. Even though you're a tank, you should be able to farm easily with this guy around.

Introduction

Hey! This is my Nasus build. Its basically an adaptation of the Unkillable Nasus Trinity Build for Pre-S5.

Nasus is one of the best 1v1 champions in the game. Most champions won't win a 1v1 with you if you play Nasus correctly and know how to stack your Q. This could be done by last hitting minions with your Q.


Guide Top

Items

For Nasus, build tank and CD reduction. Its simple. However, your boots almost 100% of the time has to be Mercury Threads so your mobility won't be limited even more.


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

Nasus has good sustain and if you stack his Q enough, with the cooldown reduction in this build, you'd be able to outdamage any champion. Since you'll only be building tank items its essential for you to get to know your Q since your damage will be complete ****.

You won't like Nasus if you prefer to use champions with a lot of mobility, or hard CC. Nasus is also really easy to kite so if you're laning against a champion like Ryze, you'll face a lot of problems.


Guide Top

Skill Sequence

Max your Q first as it would be your main source of damage. Get E and then W after.


Guide Top

Runes

Just go with AD quints, AD marks, Armor Seals and MR Glyphs. Add in a few CD Reduction Glyphs if you want to get an even more effective Q.


Guide Top

Spells

Go with Teleport so you can TP gank and make it easier to carry your team. Ghost is a must have on Nasus since it helps with your mobility, but if you're confident you could go with ignite. Dash isn't really the best choice for Nasus since the only time I could see you using it would be when chasing or juking an opponent, but you'll likely get killed after you use it since your mobility is limited.
