Introduction

Hello my name is Alilover34 in game
I have been playing Nasus for a while now and I find his different mechanics really fun.
This build is pretty viable some people may say it isn't very good but I believed if it is played in the right manner it destroys any laner.
I hope you enjoy this guide if you have any suggestions on my guide please feel free to message me or comment. Thank You

When to use what build and why?

When and why should you use which build?


Top Lane #1
Head top lane when your starting out with AP Nasus.Because Top is usually a very passive lane if you avoid early cheese and ganks from junglers . This is my #1 suggested lane to pick Nasus in .
Top Lane #2
This one is kinda made for those who are still getting used too AP Nasus and has used Nasus before but not AP
Bot Lane
This build isn't too viable but very fun to play with friends just poke with Spirit Fire and your good
Mid Lane
Play mid lane if you know how to juke and play according to enemies cool downs . If you can do both of these things mid lane seems like the lane for you

If you have any comments on this new part in my guide please comment BELOW

Summoner Spells

Flash And Ignite

For people who know how to outplay or experienced AP players.

Ghost And Exhaust

For support

Teleport and Ignite

Good for top and mid. You usually wanna take this if you are against champions that have sustain.

Flash and Teleport

This is my most recommended summoner spells on Nasus top especially against tanks

Abilities

Soul Eater(Passive)-Nasus drains his foe's spiritual energy, giving him a natural 10 / 15 / 20% life steal.

BONUS DAMAGE: 30 / 50 / 70 / 90 / 110 (+total stacks of Siphoning Strike)
If the ability deals a killing blow, Nasus gains 3 stacks of Siphoning Strike (doubled for killing champions, large minions and large monsters).


Wither-ACTIVE: Nasus ages his target, slowing their movement speed by 35% for 5 seconds. The target's attack speed is also slowed by half the amount, initially slowed by 17.5%.

The slow increases over the duration.
ADDITIONAL MOVEMENT SLOW PER SECOND: 3 / 6 / 9 / 12 / 15%
MAX MOVEMENT SPEED SLOW: 47 / 59 / 71 / 83 / 95%

Luden's Echo

Banshee's Veil

This is used for Top or Mid because it helps you penetrate anyone that tries to resist dying in one-hit.MUHAHAHAHAH

This is used for literally all AP champions need I say anything else?

One of you're core items when you go anywhere in the Rift.This just gives you another option if you're Spirit Fire is on cool down.

This item is usually used in Mid .Providing us with invulnerability for a few seconds and armor as well?!! Who could say no to this item .That few seconds of invulnerability can mean life or death in a 1v1 or a team fight so use it wisely.

This Items adds damage to your two AP skills giving extra burst.

Farming

Rules For Farming With Nasus



1. Every 10 minutes should equal to 150-200 stacks no matter what .
2. Siphoning can be useful when you are low because you have built in lifesteal so use Q a lot when you are low to sustain you in lane
3. Get sheen as early as possible to make farming really easy.
4. Stay top till at least 300-500 stacks then start roaming
5. Try to deny as much cs as possible to the other laner by last hitting every single minion.
