Threats & Synergies
You gotta watch his early game presence. Late game however he's as useless as you except you got blood boil
He is going to be a real pain mid to late game as he can 3 shot your adc before you can peel.
Hecarim isnt to much of a threat at any stage of the game. If he rushes at your adc you can peel for them with ice blast slowing and reducing his damage.
He can be a pretty difficult match up as he can ult in and trap your adc giving you no chance for peeling.
Rengar could be hard or could be easy. You need to shut down the rengar early through counter jungling to win. this shouldn't be to hard. If it gets to the point where he can two shot your carry, you will useless because you have no one to effectively blood boil. However if the renagar is not fed and doing mediocre damage than you can easily peel as rengar rely s on sticking to his enemies.
There are so many ways she can screw your adc and yourself over. She can easily gank early and make your adc useless. She can CC with her ult slowing your adc as the whole enemy jumps in your slowed adc. You can try to peel with your ult or ice blast, however she can cleanse that with her "W". Avoid playing nunu against her.
Nunu's passive help with his mana problems in the jungle. Running attack speed runes on him is viable so can proc this passive more frequently. Make sure you use this passive on his ice blast as it uses the most mana, avoid using it for consume as it uses least mana
Consume makes him annoying for other jungle in the game. With consume nunu can easily steal buffs, dragons and baron. He can counter jungle fast as he has an extra smite on hand with a heal.
Blood boil is the secret to winning games. Blood boil give him and a teammate an attack and movement speed steroid. The extra stats give your adc the leg up on the other carry, giving you the advantage in a fight.
ice blast works well in conjunction with your blood boil. Nunu cannot only buff his adc but peel effectively with the consume slow.
This is what makes Nunu known in the league community. With this Nunu build his ult wont be used as damage but more so for the cc slow. However in the early game his ult does substantial damage so take advantage of that before the enemy starts getting tanky.
When getting a leash make sure you don't consume until you take some damage, this prevent and wasted heal from your consume
When stealing or securing scuttles, barons dragons and buffs, Consume first and half way through the animation use your smite. When done right this will give the enemy absolutely zero chance of stealing.
If a teammates running away in the jungle quickly hide in a bush and start your ult. Right when the enemy steps in range your ult with do tons of damage to all of them. Don't do this late game however because your ult does no damage and only used for cc
You don't always have to blood boil your adc, you can blood boil your top lane tryndamere also. us your discretion.
If it comes to it and you gank bottom or make a play to easily get dragon or towers. You can always solo the dragon. When doing so make sure you have a vision ward and keep your eyes on mid and bot. Nunu can solo dragon around level 6 after you get your cinderhulk item. Keep in mind the consume smite come, you dont want your hard work to go to waste with a smite steal.
