Threats to Nautilus with this build
|Sion||somewhat boring matchup, just watch for his q and es and his sheild dmge. You probaly wont do any dmge to him either, unless ur somewhat fed.Roam or pressure lane if u can. Also, its smart to buy extra wards for enemy jg, so u can intercept the jgler when hes at red or wraiths ect.|
How to play hybrid nautilus- early game
Ive been trying to make a good champion that fights champions pretty nicely with sustain and cc, so I decided on nautilus. Early game is just farming or getting kills. If ur jg or team is gonna help u out at top ( or mid ), use it to get advantage to get ahead in lvls and gold. You want to help your team out at skirmishes or dragons. Therefore, get teleport and flash if your comfortable without ignite. SO you want to get rod of ages first , and if your enemy laner pokes you or gives you a hard time, just auto him once in a while with your passive or use your w on the minions to deliver some damage. However, be aware that your w kills nearby minions as well, so if you dont want to push, dont spam your w. Also, give your kills to a fellow teammate, take most of them since you want to get your items and your gonna carry anyways. ALSO THIS BUILD IS MORE TRUSTWORTHY THAN UR AVERAGE FEED OR BE FED RIVEN.
In mid game, you want to have your guinsoos and nashors. When you finally get these items, you would find that you can 1v1 most ad champs. When fighting someone, w for your shield and bonus magic damage, and w when they try to run away. Your q and ult is very useful for catching up to someone, or to snare them for your jgler to gank. Be aware that you should cooperate with your team , since you have really good cc, and you can mostly last hit these kills. Be aware that guinsoos .unique passive give you a extra boots when fighting and also gives some life steal and spell vamp. The build makes nautilus have good AP and AD , and his kit is mixed as well. Nashors tooth gives extra ap IN your ad , and most 1st drags are essential to this build since you would benefit from both of the extra AP and Ad.
In late game, you would fine that you can basically 1v1 any champ that dosen't have a ridiculously high burst or is tremendously fed. Frozen heart gives you the attack speed reduction and you will have 40 percent cooldown reduction from guinsoos and Frozen heart. Thanks to your passive , w , and lich bane, your first hits does pack a punch, and thanks to your cooldown reduction, you can zone in your opponents easily with cc .You also have plenty of health and armor from your 2 items. Be aware that if your enemy(s) does a little bit more dmge than you can tank, decide if you have to switch one of your items with warmongs or rabadons ect. ELIXER of WRATH is a consumable that fits perfectly with your build, IF you are getting more dmge than you can heal with guinsoos or tank, elixer of wrath heals you more and gives you some extra attack dmge.
>When laning, dont be scared to hit the enemy champion if hes in range. Your passive gives a little bit more damage and it roots them, so more attacking champs are harder to hit you back.
>In really early mid games, your enemy might underestimate your damage, especially after you get that guinsoos, use this to trade or just fight champs you think you can defeat
>Remember in late game, where you have the cooldowns from your items, at your q is a great way to become spidey, and its cooldown is reduced when you use on walls, so its a easy escape and if you miss, it would still be up really fast thanks to your cooldownn reduction.
>Ive been emphasizing the cooldowns really hard, but people might forget nashors 20 percent cooldown reduction with the frozen heart, and might miscalculate how fast you would get your w and ult.
>Nautilus should be able to focus down adcs or more squishier targets really easy. In teamfights, ult the carrys and root them with your passive. Then you should be able to chunk them down. Frozen heart helps with the ads and the only thing you should be scared is the really strong / fed aps, but thats why you have scaling magic resist in your builds.
>Your w is really good at fighting clumpy fights, since the damage effects to enemys around you.
>Dont be scared to fight enemys when your low, since you can cc them for a while to get a few hits , and your w gives you huge sheild since it scales on ap. Dont forget your extra 10 percent life steal and spellvamp if your health bar is 50 percent or less.
>CARE that knockups or cc can interupt ur somewhat slow auto attacks EARLY GAME, dont let champs like riven dance around u.
>If you are comfortable , change armor runes to scaling health(for w damage) it works better, just be careful about enemy AD dmge.
