Hello people, I got so much time today so I wrote a Nasus review.

http://myrmonden.blogspot.se/2012/09/league-of-legends-champion-review-nasus.html


I am quite pleased with the super enforced farming Nasus features who agrees?

I think you forgot to mention that Nasus has a hard lane phase in the current meta (although perfectly doable with the right runes/masteries/starting items and against some opponents).

Also, spirit fire isn't a ubber bad ability, you can actually see the difference in damage during lane phase, although it's a skill you shouldn't get until level 7

Thats not what I mean ---, I am not saying spirit fire is a bad ability if we look at what it does. Its a ability that lowers armor and does some damage, the armor reduction can mean a lot.

However, its a very incoherent ability with Nasus other abilities. To me it does not fit in at all.

How is it incoherent? It lowers armor to make his Siphoning Strike hit harder. His ult gives him AD so now all his auto-attacks hit harder, further augmented by his E.

He's not only a tank but a meat shield anti-carry. Wither real good at making them have .05 AS. SS real good at oneshotting them too.

Nasus does what many tanks do; self-buffing and debuffing; Q and R self-buff, W and E debuff. E and Q interact well, W makes hitting Q with E on easier, etc. It's very well designed, honestly.
Thank you Tsuki for the sig!

Why wouldn't the spirit fire be a single target spell instead and lower more armor for exampel.

The spell is just there, I would rather have it lower more armor in aoe and deal zero damage, another example.

Why is it not it decaying as well. I would say a way to do it would be, for example lowering the armor more over time. The longer the opponent stands in the desecrated land the more armor they lose. That would make it more dynamic gameplay for the opponent and for the Nasus user.

@MrCyddowls
My guess is like I try to explain that people like him, because he embodies the top solo play. Farm to you make it, there is no character that shows that you have farmed correctly as Nasus. As hes the character in the game that gains most from farming of all champions(him and Veigar)

You can summarize what I say with sentence: Well Nasus is one the simplest character in the game, its all about farming, you got basically only got one skill to utilize, however that skills grows awesome so late, late game its total bomb, however you have to utilize it correctly otherwise it sucks.

He's fun because I can go legendary and 1 vs 3 (2 being carries, the other a disrupter) and kill them all easily as they try to figure out if they should run or try to kill me back. He is also fun because he's like the ultimate punishment: if you fail to disrupt his lane phase, you're burrying your own grave.

still may be too fragile in laning and requires a lot of work to be effective. he lost a lot of popularity this season because of the tanky top meta, where harassers rule.

This right here. After you go back for your gold/5s items at the beginning he becomes an unstoppable force. He can put down even the strongest top lanes like Irelia and Jax. And Siphoning Strike a tower. Oh god <3
