Champion Build Guide

NASUS tank is here at the top of the guide CHOOSE CHAMPION BUILD: and there it is.
AKA "Hayko CaĆ­na" https://euw.op.gg/summoner/userName=Hayko%20Ca%C3%ADna best Nasus euw rank 1 all seasons. Just kidding im gold 3 trash. Anyways I've been maining this champ for 2 years. I played nasus full cdr Ghost Heal (spellbook) going for 500-600 stacks min 20 every single game. Abusing, as always. I do this strange build in some of my games because in this season cdr cap is harder to get, you can't get max cdr at min 15 like in season 10 so that's the main reason why I'm doing this guide. I will be changing some building steps or runes or even strategies because I'm new at nasus ap.

Do not spam this build because it's situational and so troll. I use this when I have to face lane abusers with low mobility. If you dont feel comfortable don't play this. It's not an easy pick. I think this is actually a different strategy for OTP Nasus players who get counterpicked in champ select and don't know how to deal with it.

Abusing lane phase
You can now bully darius counterpickers easily xD
One shoting is love, Oneshoting is live
Easy ganks for your jungler
They never expect you from going ap

Your team will flame you in most of cases
Very squishy
You are nasus so the enemy jungler will try to babysit
Weak 1v1 allin
Less stacks
Less sustain
Champ Select
This pick is very risky, this build is not a joke. I use this at ranked but the most important think is to know when to play it. It's very good to first pick with Nasus because your counters are your easy matchups with AP Nasus. For example: if they pick Gnar go AP Nasus, if they pick Kayle go Tank Nasus. You must know that if your team dont have too much ad your AP Nasus will be garbage because the enemy team will go full mr you know? It's a mental game, champ select is part of your game.

Anyways as i said dont spam this, i go this 30% of my games, my strongest Nasus is tanky.
Lane phase early game
When the game starts you must buy and 2 . You start with in most of your matchups. If you play against ****ty early game champs you can start , but in this case you should play tanky Nasus with Spellbook because you outscale every scaling champion in this game. Anyways your main goal is to force them going base with 150 hp by poking in order to make them lose farm and XP. You always want to make them useless.
Mid game
At this moment you choose. You can swap to other lanes if your team is getting stomped or you want to take some advantage on the enemy team. Dont forget that one of your main goals is to stack your as the original full tank Nasus. So dont push too much with your stupidly. Always look at the drake timer to be at there at time if your team needs help. If you have done your job nicely your laner will leave beacause of your perma poke and you will have enough cdr with your in order to stack properly.
Late game
This moment is a bit difficult because your pick is very strong with his excelent poke on early game making your oponent back thousands of times. Before 25 you have to push waves fast in order to be at time in 5v5 teamfights so you wont stack too much, only if you are losing. In teamfights please DON'T zone their backlane like a normal "tank" Nasus because they will delete you instantly, even if you bought Demonic Embrace you won't tank too much so you must stay in the backlane and poke them and if your team is going to kill an enemy just press ghost, it's active duration increases whenever you get kills or assists and always remember that movement speed is one of your best friends with this pick, running like Usain Bolt; your engages and dissangages are safer. Don't forget that you reduces their armor 45%, dont be shy to flash into in the middle of the teamfight if Miss Fortune is using her .
Imported AP NASUS build
Now you wont have to waste more time in base looking for your ap items.

Tank Nasus?
I recently added another build option at the top as I said before. It is basically a normal nasus build and runepage and it's also the kind of build that i do most of times.

When I play Nasus I'll never know if I will have to be playing ap or tank. It depends on what they pick, i explain this at champ Celect Section of the guide.
