Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
/!\First @ all i would precise it's a long & expensive build so you need know how to play Nunu & try to last hit when it's possible. /!\
Hi There !
Today we will see how to play Nunu as Hybrid on an AP/Tank Build, first let me introduce the build developement.
So, I begin with Ruby to stay as long as i can on the lane, if you play well you don't need a lot of mana. After this your first back would be for Banshee's veil ( near 2250 golds ).
Then you need to have boots, pick Sorcerer Shoes for Magic Pen. the snowball will burn them :D
/!\ If your lane is great and you kill some opponents or there's a lot of kills from your team you can pick a Medjai. If it's not a really great lane, just skip what I said. /!\
After that, take the Blasting Wand to have some AP et turn it into Rod Of Ages asap. it's a great deal between Health/Mana/AP
/!\ Those 3 items are rarely pick due to the amount of gold. /!\
So if the game is a bit long near 30 minutes you can pick Zohnya's Ring, could save your life and deal more damage btw.
If the game is reaaaaaaaly long you can pick a Void Staff to be more powerful and ignore some magical armor.
Then if the game is near 50/60 minutes take the Archangel Staff.
So now we will see for skills
Consume - The Yeti takes a bite out of target minion, dealing heavy damage to it and restoring his own health.
Takes a bite out of target minion, dealing 500/600/700/800/900 true damage and restoring125/180/235/290/345 (+1) health.
It's a really great skill to save your life/stay on lane if your lanemate is a bit weak ( Veigar etc ... ) try to get hit and so use your A :D
Blood Boil - Invigorates an allied unit and Nunu by heating their blood, increasing attack speed and movement speed.
Increases an allied unit's attack speed by 25/35/45/55/65% and ]movement speed by 11/12.5/13/14.5/15% for 15 seconds. Nunu also gains the effects of Bloodboil if casted on an allied unit.
A great support skill wich allow you to don't make a priority on boots and can help the Sp.Atk Champ or run after your ennemy ( or run away from them :p )
Ice Blast - Nunu throws a ball of ice at an enemy unit, dealing damage and slowing their movement speed for 4 seconds.
Nunu throws a ball of ice at an enemy unit, dealing 85/130/175/225/275 (+1) magic damage and slowing their movement speed by 40/45/50/55/60% and attack speed by 25% for 4 seconds.
A nice skill, not really a long cooldwon and really decent damage + slow, could save your life or kill the ennemy by a nice slow ( 4 seconds ) @ 60 % and slow the speed attack too.
Spam it :D
Absolute Zero - Nunu begins to sap the area of heat, gradually slowing all nearby enemies. When the ability ends, he deals massive damage to all enemies caught in the area.
While channeling for 3 seconds, slows nearby enemy units' attack speed and movement speed. After channeling, enemies caught in the area are dealt 625/875/1125 (+2.5) magic damage.
I would say, THE ULTI, Really nice AoE with Speed atk/movement reduction and really huge damage.
But, it's hard use it well first at all 'cause if the opponnent team have a lot of CC you need to wait after ...
Visionary - Nunu can cast a spell for free after 7 attacks.
What a ****in' great passive, hit the minions and spam your skills :D
It's the decider of YOUR game, if you play it well you can have stuff really fast and be more useful/powerful !
So I played it on this way, our passive is really great ( 7 hits = 1 free skill ), to use this passive you have to be the most aggressive as you can hit the minions and spam your ennemies with Snowballs, if it's done your mana would not suffer but your opponents will rage :D
When the level 6 is reach you have one of the best Ultimate with you, use it from bushes or when you're coming from behind !
The team fight will begin soon, don't forget to use your Z/W on ally champs, it buff both of you and spam your snowball to opponents coming closer you can initiate or save your allys !
Use your ultimate when CC are done or 1 left, it's really hard to put this ulti in teamfight.
It's too late that's yet finish. :p
No, if the game is during, try some ganks, use your brain and finally win :D
Don't forget to hit a lot of minions for your passive, then spam your snowball
Your Z can help you to reach your passive faster
Use your ulti from bushes or from behind, they will not appreciate a lot :D
I pick the snowball first to try the Firstblood, the slow is really great and if you have a great lanemate it's done :D
Then i pick Voracity to stay on lane and take the Z for advantage ( it's like boots but without boots :D )
It's personnal choice and don't engage you to nothing, i take those 2 summoners spells to stay on lane and same for my lanemate ( Could save you from Karthus ulti too )
You can Also use Flash & Teleport, it's your choice
I prefer have a lot of health to beginning and it's not the better choice i think, but it's mine, you can also pick AP and or Magic Pen.
I will edit this build soon but comments are welcome don't hesitate and if you need more informations ask for it !
