Maybe some of you people still don't know it, but the latest patch brought some interesting changes to Nasus. The first one:

"This bonus is doubled for larger creatures, such as enemy champions, cannon minions, the large wolf, and Baron Nashor."

Pretty straight forward, this way, you will gain more Q stacks, especially in the jungle. You even gain more in the jungle than in the lane.

Insider: "Luthers dream comes true."

The second secret change:

" Siphoning Strike bonus damage is now affected by crit."

This can become a little OP new thing. First, we have to say goodbye to Iceborn Gauntlet and welcome back Trinity Force. We also now say hi to Atma's Impaler. Critting with like 600 bonus damage and ulti would instashot anyone.

As for build: (get what you want)

Another option would be Sword of the Divine.

The Question is, will be Nasus now more viable?
He is gonna kill you!!!

No difference imo

Nasus wasn't picked not because of his damage but because of his role in a team comp

A Nasus has just lost hard his lane vs a Nidalee in my last game :(

:D :D :D :D :D

Jokes apart, his jungle could be more viable atm. Gotta test it.

Well, what else would you get to abuse his critical strike Q? It just has a perfect synergy.

BTW: Not atmog's, it is atrimog's, the good old metagolem build.

Okay, scratch Atma's Impaler, just get Infinity Edge instead.

he might be better in yoloqueue since a fed nasus gives no ***** how the enemy team is doing and 1 shots everyone, but he'll probably still suck. Maybe not, as I haven't tested him enough to find out.

He's too slow at jungling because he wants to Q every creep. He's basically sitting there taking damage waiting for the CD. It's easier in lane, and even then he's a gamble champion.

I just jungled with him and he isn't that slow tbh. Of course you won't Q EVERY SINGLE MINION, but you can usually Q both buff creeps and buff, 1-2 small creeps and the big one, and that's more than enough.
