I've been playing nunu a lot recently, and I really like him. I usually build as a tanky caster, starting off with Mercury's Treads, Banshee's Veil, then Zhonya's Hourglass. With this combination I have more than enough MR, a decent amount of armor, but not quite as much health as I'd like. I was wondering if it'd be viable to get a Rylai's Crystal Scepter to get that health I'd like - nunu's damaging spells both have slows anyways, so would the rylai's slow be useless or not worth the money? What are my alternatives (not rod of ages)?

This. I perfer RoA first. You can alternatively go for a Giant's belt + Rabadon's deathcap. I dunno, seem s viable. The Giant's belt later being built into a Sunfire.

Seems like a big waste.. ROA is superior in all ways.

I always get Rylai's on my AP Nunu. I don't build him tanky, though. Only defense(ish) items I get are Abyssal Scepter and Zhonya's. Still, end game I have like 3.2-3.5k HP and my ult does ridiculous amount of damage. Upwards of 3k.

Most of the reason I'm so averse to the RoA is because I like to rush Banshee's Veil and I feel like I won't get much use out of rod of ages if I don't buy it first :/ Well, I guess I'll just get it second, and I'll get a chainmail early on if AD champions prove to be a threat.

Hell I've seen HotshotGG get like 2 RoA near the ends of games when it was still quite ambiguous who the winner could be, I think overall it's a pretty good choice no matter what, you'll just get more benefit over time if you buy it first.
