[S13] Jungle Nasus Guide (Tank/Lethality) build

By JT Andrew
Hi Im Jt1 Shizen Nasus Is One Of My Main Champions In League Of Legends But I'm Making My Game Exist More Because It's Always Along Top When I Use Nasus So I'm Thinking Of Just Going Jungle Because If I Jungle Nasus I Get More Stacks And Push The Turret Faster So Go To The Bottom To Read How To Jungle Nasus Got To Master It
Pros & Cons


β†’ Nasus is easy to use.
β†’ Good for ganking because of W Wither.
β†’ Strong In late game.
β†’ good in teamfight.
β†’ Nasus is strong with enough stacks
β†’ Very good for splitpushing.
β†’ It's easy for nasus to carry an ally if there is enough stack.
β†’ Very Good for Back door.


β†’ It's hard to stack when jungle lane.
β†’ very bad in early game because Nasus is less stack.
β†’ He is not good in the late game when the stack is not enough.
Mythic Item
Divine Sunderer
Divine Sunderer It's still good in 12.14 update. because Divine Sunderer gives you bonus 3% armor penetration and 3% magic penetration. most of the game nasus will use this item more because this item has sustain and armor penetration and magic penetration.
Trinity Force
Trinity Force It's Good For Nasus Because Bonus MS But Use Trinity Force Against A Lot Of MS And Poke Because Of Trinity Force Passive.And Don't Use It If You Have 1-3 Enemy Tank Use Divine Sunderer Against For This Situation
Duskblade Of Draktharr
The Old Duskblade of Draktharr gives you bonus invisibility after killing or assist for 1.5 sec. The new Duskblade of Draktharr After killing or assist you are become untargetable fir 1.5 sec. this new passive of Duskblade of Draktharr's pasdive it's still good in lethality nasus build. Duskblade of Drakkthar's new passive is even better. because the enemy cannot attack you. unlike the old passive of this item you will be invisible but you can still be hit of any abilities other than direct attack.
Eclipse is viable mythic for Nasus. because Eclipse gives you bonus 15% movespeed and bonus 6% Bonus physical damage And gives you 4% armor penetration and 5% movespeed per legendary. why would I recommend [eclipse]] to Nasus. because after 12.10 durability update all champions are increased Durability or armor/mr so I recommend Eclipse. because Eclipse has bonus armor penetration. but dont use this mythic if you want to build tank Nasus. Eclipse this mythic i will recommend it if you want lethality build.

Prowler's Claw
Prowler's Claw this item is idael for Nasus. because this item gives 5 lethality and 5 ms per legendary. This item is used on the enemy. When you use it on your opponent, you will dash to the place where you used it. and when you use it you will have bonus physical it's also a good one-shot build because of the item's passive.
Legendary Item's (Damage Item's)
Essence Reaver
Essence Reaver It's Also Good For Nasus. Because Nasus Is A Strong Mana User Because His Abilities Mana Is High So The Essence Reaver Is Good Because Of Its Bonus Mana Every Time You Use Abilities.
The Collector
Use The Collector To Fast Exexute Your Enemy Against Squishy And Marksman Enemy For One Bonk.
Infinity Edge
Get Infinity Edge To Scale Your Critical Strike Chance This Is Good If You Buy The Essence Reaver And The Collector For 2000 Critical Strike.
Lord Dominik's Regards
Use Lord Dominik's Regards Against A Lot Of Squishy And Destructive Armor of the Enemy Example Ornn, Rammus And Other Armor Stacker
Youmuu's Ghostblade
Get Youmuu's Ghostblade For Bonus Out Of Combat MS Because Nasus Needs More MS Youmuu's Ghostblade If You Are Going To A Lane For Assistance To Kill The Enemy.
Black Cleaver
Get Black Cleaver If You Have A Lot Of Squishy Enemy And Gives You A Lot Of Haste And Health. And Gives You Bonus MS After Black Cleaver Is Fully Stack.
Serylda's Grudge
Get Serylda's Grudge Against Squishy Enemy And Use This Against A Lot Of MS Because Serylda It Can Slow Anyone Hit By Your Abilities It's Good For Your E Spirit Fire And W Wither
Legendary Item's (Tank Item's)
Frozen Heart
Frozen Heart it's good against melee champ such us Trundle, Master Yi, Kindred etc.

Gargoyle Stoneplate
Gargoyle Stoneplate it's good item. Because this item gives you armor and mr for bonus durability. andgives you bonus shield after use this item. this is good for survivability.

Thornmail this item is situational. use this if enemy is a lot of bruiser/a lot of lifesteal champ such fiora,darius,warwick etc.

Randuin's Omen
Randuin's Omen it's good when you enemy is full AD team. because this item reduced Crit/damage. and after use this item against enemy slow it by 40% for 2 sec.
Spirit Visage
Spirit Visage it's good against mages. and gives you 25% healing and shielding this is good for bonus healing for your passive.

Force of nature
Force of Nature it's good for situational. when your enemy is full AP team and gives you ms and reduced all incoming magic damage by 25%

Death's Dance
Death's Dance its ideal for Nasus. because after killing enemy heals you for 2 sec. This item it's good against such as master yi,fiora,zed and other champs with lots of burst damage/true damage.

Maw of malmortius
Maw of Malmortius it's good against burst damage such as katarina,evelynn,akali etc. Because this item gives you magic damage shield in short this item has survive burst. But use this item when your enemy is full AP team.

Sterak's gage
Sterak's Gage it's good against a lot of burst AD champ like Darius,Garen,Zed etc. Because this item is survive burst.
What Is Better Lethality Or Tank Build?

Lethality Build Explain

The Lethality Build Is A One-Shot Build Because This Build Is Purely Damage And It Has No Defensive Build Unlike The Tank Build Which Is Purely Defense Build And It Can Only Be Used When You're Jungle Because You Get More Stacks In Jungle Unlike Top Level 11 You Only Get Less Stacks Lethality Build Is Pretty good For Visiting To Other Lane Because Lethality Build Is Very Strong In Jungle But Don't Always Forget The Objective Like The Dragon Because It Is Important To The Team

Weakness Of Lethality Build

The Weakness Of The Lethality Build Is Only A Little Health Of This Build Unlike The Tank Build Reaches 4000+ Health So When You Build Lethality You Should Also Need A Backup Even Your Stack Is At 700+ stacks

Tank Build

The Tank Build Is Also Good Because It Takes A Long Time To Die Due To Its Too Many Defensive Item's But The Tank Build Does Only Less Damage. Because The Tank Build Is Purely Defensive Item's And Few Damage Item's If You Want Bonus Damage Use Hullbreaker, Black Cleaver, Sterak's Gage Etc.


The Tank Build And The Lethality Build Of Nasus Are Both Good But It's Up To You What You Want To Build
Recommend Runes
Fleet Footwork
Fleet Footwork it's always pick for Nasus any lane top, jungle, mid etc. because Nasus always need movespeed to chase his enemy for stack Use The Fleet Footwork, Triumph, Legend: Tenacity, Last Stand When Your Opponent Has Many CC Like : Amumu, Udyr, Sejuani Etc. This Rune Page Is Perfect Pick.
Phase Rush
Phase Rush it's viable keystone for Nasus. because after active Phase Rush gives bonus movement speed and slow resist for 4 sec. this sec it's good to chase your enemy. can you pick Nimbus Cloak for bonus movement speed after use your spell like Ghost. and next pick get Transcendence for bonus haste. this is good for your ult Fury of the Sands your Q Siphoning Strike to use it quickly for split pushing and stacking.
and get Waterwalking for extra Ad & Ap damage and movement speed when you are in the river this is good for ganking to other lane to kill.
Lethal Tempo
Lethal Tempoit's also good for Nasus because Lethal Tempo gives you bonus attack speed and range. this is good for your Q Siphoning Strike and it's also good for on-hit champs like Darius, Mordekaiser, Warwick, etc.
Future Market & Approach Velocity

Future's Market

Approach Velocity
Future's Market it's good for Nasus. because can you buy item's faster. this good for stacking. so you can stack quickly Approach Velocity it's good for visiting to other lane. because after active Approach Velocity needs impaired movement like Nasus W Wither this good to chase your enemy to kill or assistance


Conditioning its good for any build like tank or lethality. Conditioning gives you bonus armor and mr. so it's good because you're a jungler and not a laner to use Second Wind, Bone Plating and other laning runes. Unflinching it's very useful against a lot of CC opponent like udyr,amumu,elise etc. better if this is what you get when you use resolve. but Overgrowth is also good because every time you kill a monster you get bonus hp so you can get more cs. and also for good lane ganking
How To Destroy Your Enemy's Turret Faster?
To Destroy Your Enemy's Turret Faster And When Your Stack Is At 150+ And When You Have R Fury of the Sands You Use It To Destroy The Enemy's Turret Instantly Push The Tower Until Your R Fury of the Sands Has No Effect And Then Put A Control Ward On The Rift Herald To Get It To Continue Pushing The Tower. And Use Hullbreaker For Bonus Damage To Turret To Destroy It Faster.
Stack Ward?
Stack Ward It's Also Good Because Nasus Q Siphoning Strike Will Be Stacked With Q Siphoning Strike And If You Want This Stack Method You Always Have Control Ward And Oracle Lens To Hunt The Enemy's Ward But This Method It's Good But This Method It's Really Hard But This Actually Work.
Ghost It's Always Get For Nasus Because Nasus Needs More MS To Chase His Enemy Because Ghost It's Better Than Flash Because Flash You Can Only Use It Once And Its CDR Is Still 5 Mins And The Ghost Is Only In 3 Minutes

Scorchclaw Smite this is prestige Chilling Smite because Scorchclaw Smite & Chilling Smite is the same passive. because after use this smite in enemy slow it by 20% for 2 second. and burn this smite like Challenging Smite so it's also good for Nasus.

Mosstomper Smite
Mosstomper Smite is a brand new smite in league. this smite gives you bonus overheal or shield defending in your level. and gives you bonus tenacity and slow resist. this smite it's good against a lot of cc champ.

Gustwalker Smite
Gustwalker Smite this smite is like Chilling Smite but only in the splash they are the same. but Gustwalker Smite's pasdive gives you bonus ms and no more
Early Game?
In the early game Nasus is weak and slow to clear camp when jungle Nasus so you always need a leash or help to clear the camp faster. better to start with Red buff > krugs > raptors > wolves > blue buff > gromp . the krugs is easily to kill in preseason. because big krugs decrease 2 small krugs to kill all krugs and the scuttle 's shield has also been removed so it can be easily killed for the vision.
after clear your camp you can even gank because of your W Wither. your gank will help because of W Wither and the enemy can use his survivability spell like Ghost or Flash etc. and get a minion for the bonus 3 stack and back. when your gold is 1000+ buy Sheen first and Boots for stack safety.because you can miss using Q Siphoning Strike but you can use the Ionian Boots of Lucidity first because it has the ability haste and so you can go to gank faster.
Mid Game?
When Your Stacked Is At 400+ Stacked This Stack Is Good To Fight Your Opponent But Don't Go 1v5 Because Nasus Is Still Weak In The Mid Game In This Battle. But it's good for Nasus when you single out your opponent to kill them because they're stacked. It's easy for Nasus when your Stack It's Good.
Late Game?
When It's Late Game And You Need To Push Structures It's Easy For Nasus When Your Stacked Is At 700-1000 Stacks It's Easy For Nasus To Push A Tower. And To Be Better And Faster You Use Hullbreaker For Nasus So You Have Bonus Damage On Towers But If The Enemy's Tower Is Only One You Can Backdoor Wait For The Enemy To Leave Their Invitor Lane And Backdoor And Use R Fury of the Sands So You Can Destroy Your Opponent's Inivitor Faster To Win
