When I started playing lol, nasus was the first champ i picked up outside of like ashe and garen - my first love, in other words. Taught me the value of last hitting, etc, and lets be honest, what's cooler than a dog being a complete badass late game?

However, as I got more experienced, I obv began to play tons of different champs, and without ever returning to nasus, I just accepted that he would get destroyed by any solo top that could play aggressive, which is basically, well, all solo tops these days it seems.

However, after taking a few weeks off from LoL on a major Tribes: Ascend bender, I came back with the intention of figuring out if I can bring nasus back. What is everyone's opinion of him right now? Does anyone play him frequently? How do you build/rune him? Thanks

In theory, every champion is viable.

Nasus goes like this: if you can't trully bug his farming, you can't stop him. If you can't stop him, odds are it's GG.

However, there are many champs and playstyles that can ruin Nasus' existence. If you can learn to sort out whom you can face and whom you can't, you'll be able to get dat champion more often.

Nasus is garbage, don't be the guy who picks Nasus.

Your entire team will (Rightfully) be mad at you. It's like the top lane version of jungle Eve.

Wouldn't a top version of mid veigar be a better comparison....?

Veigar is better for a multitude of reasons

Veigar is actually pretty good.

Maybe not top tier but he's arguably the best burst mage in the game.

I think Nasus is fine in the jungle TBH :P

Under the right circumstances of course.

Sure he'd work in the jungle

He's just extremely subpar.

Do you mean he has the highest burst, or he's the best caster who specifically focuses on burst Luther?
