The dog does it all...

Hello sumoners! This guide is personaly used by me, I play nasus like all the time when I can so over many matches of fails and succeds I came up with these ultra combos of items the "Team 1" will preivde you with dmg at start which will alow you to dominate at top, also it'll provide you with durabilty to deal more dmg through the corse of the team fight. The "Team 2" build will provide you with tons of dmg through the game but less durability so the "Team 2" build you have to go into the team fight almost the last person to get to the battle, you need to be there like 2 secs after the team fight starts because by that time theyll already pick a target to kill so you'll have more time to deal dmg or to kill.

Team 1

This set of runes gives you a super good head start in dmg which allows you to escape buying dmg items in beging which gives you more money to focus on your build and get to it faster, but these runes are easily countered by a champion like Riven, because of all that CC she has at lvl 2. Also any champion that has any chanse of keeping you away for them can be a big problem to Nasus, because nasus deals tons of dmg in seconds but you need to get to the target and be able to actualy hit the target atleast for 8 secs, because if the cooldown on his "Q" at lvl 18 is 4 secs. Also as you may have noticed that i dont have the 3rd tire seals is because for some reason MOBAFIRE doesn't have them.

Team 2

The runes for the Nasus team 2 are based on late game these runes over power the start bonuce runes from level 6, and because of that the game will be tough for the first 10 minutes. Mainly these runes dont provide you with durabilty, so be carefull dont start the fight in the beging of the game until your lvl 6-14 because in that time no one is really tanky or anything but Nasus if well farmed will deal 300-500 dmg during that time.

Team 1

Some of the items in this guide can be easyly changed for other without your effect on your gameplay. Such as Mercury's Treads, you can change it to Ninja Tabi if in enemy team theres is little CC but alot of physicsl dmg but if they have a team of CC and physical dmg in the same champion of which there plenty its best you take Mercury's Treads because you can get more armor than magic resistsand you need to get every posible way to save space in your item slots. Another item you can change is Warmog's Armor to Sunfire Cape but beware that that change wont effect your gamplay only if you got fed early game but once you cant feed and you dont have money for Warmog's Armor and they have alot of physical dmg that will even help you. The last item that you can change is Guardian Angel, you can change it to Force of Nature but it will give you the most efect if you have 1. Warmog's Armor 2. Alot of magic dmg and CC on enemy team.

Team 2

In the "Team 2" build you cant really tell all the changes you can make because enemies can get the counter items which are to this build armor so you can change this build to your game but if the match is going really good you are getting fed ALOT and you have the money to rush these items while the enemies dont have any really heavy armor than you should follow this build because with this build you'll get tons of dmg on ppl in seconds.
