Champion Build Guide

Metan't Naut

This guide will continuously be updated
I really like this build a lot so as I test it I will keep you all updated. The main things that will be updated are matchups. so always refer to threats if you're wondering about a certain matchup. I will do my best to give a description of what its like.
Your goal with this build is to basically roam with your jangler and get them ahead. Nautilus doesn't have good wave clear so you want to set up as many ganks as possible so that after the gank you can go and get objectives with your jungler.
Why rush Anathemas?
Although Anathemas chains doesn't provide any resistances the fact that you take reduced damage from your target and your double armor / MR runes will allow you got get through the early game. also it makes all your CC last longer. this includes your stun on your auto, the knock-up on your ult and even the brief stun on your Q.
Rune choice
You want Aftershock because it will literally prock off of your auto and your Q
Shield bash because the damage on it stacked with cheap shot and your W makes your trades hit surprisingly hard
Bone plating because it’s broken
And overgrowth for scaling
Cheap shot cuz it will always be doing damage and ultimate hunter so that your ult is a constant problem

If they lock in a pick and you immediately think it will be pain then font of life and revitalize will make lanining more bearable. Remember font of life procks on cc so you can literally just Q auto and walk away for a heal

and one final change is that if you don't think demolish is going to be useful then shield bash is a very good rune if you W on the way in
People WILL underestimate your damage at all times also invading with this strat is really good so taking ignite is amazing.
Other itemization
You can run sunfire or frostfire depending on what you want. sunfire is good damage but frostfire gives good soft cc and is good for chasing. decide on what you want. then from there just go what you need.
This can be played top
I was testing a top build and the champ I was playing got banned. so I decided to go Naut and proceeded to steamroll the lane. probably very matchup dependent and a counterpick at best but just be known this can be played top. If you where to play it top I would personally ban Renekton or Mundo. ranged can be tough but you make ganks super easy and W makes trading a tad more sufferable so I wouldn't worry too much about it.
