Hi my name is Unbréakable and I'm a player in EUNE server. I main Nasus and I really love this champ.
- "lvl7 Nasus omg, get a life".
- "All you do is Q".
Heard that like a thousand times. Everybody thinks Nasus is the easiest champion in the game to play. Wrong. Before you get your Siphoning Strike stacked you need to STACK YOUR Siphoning Strike; and it ain't easy at all (most of the times). You need to know how to freeze the minion waves, you need to learn your champion and you need to calculate perfectly your every last hit (yes your Siphoning Strike) on minions. You also need your jungler at least 2 times during the laning phase so that you can push your opponent and the minion wave back OR even better get a kill.

Pros / Cons

+ Nasus can become a mid game MONSTER
+ Soul Eater is one of the best passive abilities in this game and gives you great sustain
+ Nasus can carry games
+ Siphoning Strike works on turrets (basically it destroys turrets)
+ Nasus is one of the best split pushers in this game
+ Nasus can 1v1 almost every champion if stacked properly

- Nasus may become a mid game monster (not a late game one - even a fed Nasus can't deal with a Master Yi during late game)
- Nasus needs his jungler during the laning phase
- Nasus players many times try to stack their Siphoning Strike the whole game long and they finally lose the game
- Nasus needs to farm and farm and farm for the first 20 minutes, so that means the rest of the team may 4v5 the enemies
-Your team may flame you for not helping them enough
-Your enemies may flame you for playing an unskilled champion

Just a few words for Nasus

1) Nasus is NOT a late game monster. He is a mid game monster. Keep that on mind and try to end the game as soon as possible.
2)Learn how to farm safely and stack your Siphoning Strike (450 stacks on 20' is more than enough).
3)Try to freeze the minion wave close (or under) your turret until you have enough Siphoning Strike stacks to RIP your opponent. Here's a link by SoloRenektonOnly that I think is very helpful and shows how to manipulate minion waves, enjoy:
4)During the early laning fase you will need your jungler a couple times to frighten or kill your enemy. Call him when needed.
5)Always have your territory warded.
6)The best thing you can do with Nasus is split pushing (on the right time). Specially if you are strong enough, you will end up split pushing and fighting 1v2(or even more) as the rest of your team is getting other objectives.
7)One good Teleport on bot lane during the laning fase (and after you lay your hands on Fury of the Sands) will change the whole game to your team's favor.
8)The use of Corrupting Potion during an early fight is gonna give you a huge power spike.
9)Having deep wards during the late game can save the day (a deep ward next to an inhibitor for Nasus to Teleport in the enemy base can win you the game)
10)Last but not least DON'T YOU EVER TRY TO GET 1000 stacks on Siphoning Strike. Try to help your team as much as you can after the laning fase is over. If you don't help them, this isn't going to end up well neither for you nor your team.

Thanks for reading!!! GL&HF
