Pros and Cons Back to Top


+Hard CC
+Good Damage
+Great Engage
+Decent Peeling for allies

Nautilus is a very strong engage tank Support with a lot of CC and damage. He also has decent mobility and a shield to keep him alive.


-Bad Hooks can easily be punished
-Hooks can be hard to hit

Hitting Hooks and finding the right target can be rough. When hitting an enemy, you pull yourself towards you meaning that a bad hook can easily be punished.
Gargoyle Stoneplate Back to Top
The main item of every build will be Gargoyle Stoneplate. This is currently one of the most overused items on tank supports especially on the korean servers.

Passive: If 3+ enemies are nearby,grants 40 armor and magic resist. When activated, increases health by 40% but reduces damage dealt by 60%. If 3+ enemies are nearby, instead increase health by 100%.

The reason why this is so insanely good is because teamfights happen a lot, especially around drakes and they easily help us use our passive to gain a huge amount of HP. This greatly improves our survivability as any champion and makes us nearly unstoppable in teamfights while also providing a decent amount of armor and magic resist.
Runes Back to Top
Aftershock: Increases your armor/magic resist and deals a little bit of damage to nearby enemies after immobilizing them. This is a very good rune if you want to be a bit more tanky and survive more enemy attacks.

Shield Bash: Gain extra armor and mr when using a shield, also increases the damage of your next auto attack when shielding yourself.

Bone Plating: After taking damage, the next few attacks used on you from that source deal less damage. Good for being more tanky in lane and being less punishable.

Unflinching: Increases your Tenacity for every ability and summoner spell on cooldown. Very useful for reducing the duration of the enemies' CC and being more mobile.

Presence of Mind: When taking down an enemy, refund a percentage of your max. Mana and increase your maximum mana by 100 (Max 500).

Legend Tenacity: Increases your Tenacity for every takedown you get. Great for being more mobile.

Perfect Timing: Gives you a free stopwatch after 14 minutes or earlier depending on how many takedowns you get. Also reduces the cost of Gargoyle Stoneplate.

Cosmic Insight: Grants 5% CDR, Increases your max CDR by 5%, 5% Item CDR and 5% Summoner Spell CDR

Ghost Poro: After your wards die, they remain for another minute or untill an enemy walks by. This is useful for having deep wards or warding when you're losing as it can be more dangerous to walk into the jungle but with a Ghost Poro this can be easier.

Ultimate Hunter: Reduces your ultimate's cooldown depending on how many enemies you've taken down.
Abilities Back to Top

Staggering Blow [Passive]

When Nautilus basic attacks an enemy, they are rooted for 0.75s to 1.5s (depending on level). His basic attacks also deal bonus physical damage.

Dredge Line [Q]

Nautilus throws his anchor forward in a line. If it hits an enemy, he pulls them towards him whilst also dashing towards them, dealing magical damage. If it hits a wall, Nautilus pulls himself towards it reducing half of its mana cost and half the cooldown.

Titan's Wrath [W]

Natilus shields himself for 6 seconds. While the shield is active, his basic attacks deal bonus magical damage and hit all enemies around his target.

Riptide [E]

Nautilus creates 3 waves of explosions around him. Each explosion deals damage to enemies and slows them.

Depth Charge [R]

Nautilus selects a target. He then fires a shockwave that chases the target while dealing damage to every enemy it hits. When it reaches the target, they are knocked up into the air and stunned while also taking magical damage.
Conclusion Back to Top
Nautilus is currently a very strong champion and he is even stronger with the Gargoyle Stoneplate. It allows him to be very tanky and nearly unkillable. You will be unstoppable with this build. Good luck in your future games and I hope you liked this guide :D
