NASUS GUIDE

Nasus is a good champion who can carry in soloq. I highly recommend it to those who want to get out of the gold, platinum, but also emerald ranks. On diamond+, Nasus is still a nice pick, but you'll have a hard time in the first 4 minutes.

Pros

  • Best champ mid game, can tank and 3 shot the enemy carry
  • In low elo, player doesn't know how deal with it

Cons

  • Really bad early game, in some match up, is unplayable in hight elo
  • If it falls behind, comeback is impossible

Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

Starting Items

Sapphire CrystalSapphire Crystal  Is an important item for NasusNasus , give him enough mana to stay in lane as much as possible, using the Siphoning StrikeSiphoning Strike and Spirit FireSpirit Fire .


First Recall

SheenSheen Is a must have, it give you a lot of help farming with Siphoning StrikeSiphoning Strike , you can't not buy it.

Boots of SpeedBoots of Speed Is anorher item you need to buy to reach the lane and not lose too many minions.

PhagePhage if you have money, take this item to get the speed boost, with the skill WitherWither to not let enemies run away if they have low hp.


Core items

Trinity ForceTrinity Force Is the best item you can buy on NasusNasus , gives everything NasusNasus needs: Mana, Attack Speed, Hp and 200% dmg bonus for your Siphoning StrikeSiphoning Strike

Redeeming EnchantRedeeming Enchant in my opinion, it's the best enchant, for a simple fact that gives a lot of utility in teamfight, Vision, Heal and pure damage, which thanks to WitherWither , you will hit always with Redeeming EnchantRedeeming Enchant .            Many people use Glorious EnchantGlorious Enchant or Teleport EnchantTeleport Enchant , and it's not wrong but the Glorious EnchantGlorious Enchant Is really useless in a 5v5 fight, since the first enemy you touch, the active it take off, and it doesn't help at all in a teamfight. Same for Teleport EnchantTeleport Enchant , NasusNasus need farm, with his Siphoning StrikeSiphoning Strike and lose farm= useless in mid game. Only in one situation you can buy Teleport EnchantTeleport Enchant , when you have a shyvana, and you need 100% drake.

Guardian AngelGuardian Angel with this items, you become a mid game monster, you become Immortal thanks also with Fury Of The SandsFury Of The Sands


Situational items

Spirit VisageSpirit Visage Is a great items for NasusNasus , almost a core items,  gives a lot of regeneration and healing, very good with Soul EaterSoul Eater . You can buy it at 75% as the fourh item, but, why 75%? sometimes it may happen that there are no ap enemies, or enemy ability power is not a big problem and you need to stop the enemy ad. I remind you that Fury Of The SandsFury Of The Sands give a lot of magical and physical resistance. Now let's see the other items to be buy as fourth, if we are in these situations

Randuin's OmenRanduin's Omen it's a perfect item to stop enemies aiming for critical, like YasuoYasuo DravenDraven or fed adc.

ThornmailThornmail is anorher good items for stop ADC Fed, especially for those who are auto attack depender, like JinxJinx VayneVayne or JaxJax

Adaptive HelmAdaptive Helm is a good items if you are vs AP fed like Aurelion SolAurelion Sol KennenKennen EvelynnEvelynn or OriannaOrianna

Abyssal MaskAbyssal Mask is good vs a burst dmg AP enemy, like AnnieAnnie and also, help your team do more damage with ability power (don't buy it if your team don't have AP, and yes, make sure you have always an AP champion in your team)


Boots

[ninja tabi] if you are vs an AD in your lane like FioraFiora DariusDarius JaxJax CamilleCamille etc.

Mercury's TreadsMercury's Treads if you are vs so many enemies with stun (stun like MalphiteMalphite [Malphite:ult], or RakanRakan Grand EntranceGrand Entrance , BlitzcrankBlitzcrank Power FistPower Fist , YasuoYasuo Steel TempestSteel Tempest etc, is useless Mercury's TreadsMercury's Treads ).
