Who are the best people to counter Nasus in solo top and why? Been seeing alot of Nasus lately(never on my team) and he is always massively farmed by end game and destroys everyone. Thanks in advance for any help you might provide.

Someone with strong harrasment will be an ideal counter. Nasus needs tons of farm, so if you're able to stop him there - game turns into 4v5.
First champion I thought about was Rumble, but anybody with good AoE spells will stop him.

Olaf counters him colossally, to the point that it is impenetrable to become well farmed ( Siphoning Strike wise) without a jungler babysitting him all day and night with a camp pitchforked up.

Other unfathomable opponents for Nasus: Riven, Gangplank (won't be as effective without crit runes), Renekton, Udyr etc.

Olaf is pretty good, every time he goes to Q a minion you use Reckless Swing

Gp is pretty solid if you know how to play him (and crit isn't necessary)

Ad Nidalee can snowball to execution if you understand what i mean. Basically it gets to the point where her Q in cougar form deals so much damage that Nasus can't keep up with it
Thanks for the Signature MissMaw!

Olaf.
Trynd works pretty well as a counter to him. Irelia does alright.

Also, an unconventional top like Vayne or Kog would ruin his day. Just have to have good awareness so you don't get ganked.

Crit chance GP is a good counter.

teemos Q is useless against nasus Q

tried it out, he still kills the minion and gets +3

dont know if trynd is really a counter to nasus as Nasus has his W which will slow trynds movement and atack speed, but yeah as trynd you can aswell farm all day and night as his heal is OP!!!111!1

but riven and renekton should work pretty good

Tryn can win pretty much all solo top lanes, if played right.

And btw, Nasus is a horrible solo top compared to many others.
Thanks to me and Elleeeeeka (love that name) for my sigs.
