Never used to like Nasus. As a dps his abilities are kinda wonked, and as a tank I always thought his abilities weren't focused enough.

Great guide! Really helped show off Nasus' tank potential. Great stuff. +1 and such

Edit: also, I'm sure there's a zillion other places I could have picked it up, but your breakdown on the Frozen Heart/Randuin's Omen was the first I've read up on it. Every little thing that makes me a better player...

Love the guide. A question... why does everybody call them Mercury Threads with a "th"?

This is THE guide from i've learned most from mobafire. I tend to change skill order depending on what i'm facing or am I doing solo but this is easily the best Nasus guide out there. Thanks a lots for creator u are my idol :)

nice build, how about replacing sunfire with atma's? your dmg will increase greatly, especially when ulted ;)

I started playing Nasus with your build but I changed it :
I often run out of mana so I make a Chalice of harmony to solve this problem and to have some magic resist then the mercury boots. When there are more AD champion I pick Ninja tabi + Eleisa's miracle.
When my team is winning, the last item I pick is the black cleaver so I make huge damages.

This build was a huge help ;) I was able to do 9/3/12 from second match:)

I'm still relatively new to LoL - only been playing a month, but immediately gravitated towards Nasus - I always enjoy hybrids, a little tanky, a little dps. But that tends to mean I never shine in any one thing.

Last night a team mate recommended going full tank - and I found this build. Have to say - it is great. Still a bit weak early on (not sure much can be done about that) - but boy, after mid game... Nasus Tank just dominates. Especially in 3 v 3.

Keep up the good work!

Hi. I'm relatively new to LoL, and I'm playing Nasus because of your awesome guide. But I'm having some trouble understanding the item structure. When I'm building towards Warmogs Armor, I find my inventory full, because of Aegis of the Legion, Doran's Sheild, Sheen, etc. I'm unsure what to sell to purchase Warmogs, and then after Warmog's, I may not have enough room for Tri-force. What do I do? Sorry for being so troublesome. ^^;;
