Maxing consume is my favorite build atm.  3 points in Q then maxing E is also viable


Now that W gives AP, I will occasionally put a couple points in it depending on our comp. Normally with a lux/zoe mid.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    Exchange for this on your second or third recall

Core Items

    Tiamat is a must as of patch 8.15. Clears camps faster than cinderhulk by far. BUILD THIS BEFORE YOUR JG ITEM Upgrade to Titanic Hydra if you and your team are dominating. Sell for last item late game
    Current Core Build order is Hunter's Talisman->Tiamat->Cinderhulk->Gargoyle's
    This is a great item on Nunu I've been using it in most games
    red smite for more tankyness/damage.
    Example full build. Tiamat should be built but sell for last item

Situational Items

    Enemy AP champ far ahead? Heavy AP comp? Build 2 of these 3. Abyssal if you're ahead. Adaptive against champs with low Cooldowns. Banshee's against lots of crowd control
    Build Thornmail when the enemy team has a lot of heals and/or if they are ad heavy
    Build Randuin's against Marksmen who build crit. Examples would be Cait, Draven, Twitch
    Build Knight's Vow when your game has extended teamfights and put it on your marksman
    Build Locket against enemies with lots of burst and be ready to use it immediately when they engage
    Build Runic Echoes along with Liandry's if you are the ONLY source of ap damage on your team.

VS

Alistar

Hard

Ganking bot lane with an Alistar support is hard to do unless they're overextended as far as possible. Throw Ice Blast on whoever is closest to your allies and try to save Absolute Zero until after Alistar uses both of his crowd control abilities.

VS

Amumu

Medium

If your team gets caught by an Amumu you've set behind, he can still lead their team to victory with his aoe crowd control. I'd suggest split pushing if they're a heavy aoe team.

VS

Camille

Hard

VS

Cho'Gath

Hard

Cho'Gath is hard to fight due to his silence and knockup. Try to avoid Cho and peel him off your carry in team fights.

VS

Elise

Medium

Be careful around Elise she can burst you down pretty fast especially with help

VS

Evelynn

Easy

Eve can W out of your ice blast to get away, other than that shes fairly weak against Nunu.

VS

Fiddlesticks

Hard

Silence and Fear both cancel Absolute Zero and hes strong in teamfights with a good ultimate. Try to get ahead early by counter jungling.

VS

Hecarim

Easy

Ice blast him off of your carry and you should be fine. Hecarim is also easy to counter jungle.

VS

Jarvan IV

Easy

Its pretty easy to counter jungle J4. He can knock you up out of your ultimate but thats about it. Peel him off of your carry.

VS

Kayn

Hard

VS

Kha'Zix

Easy

Hit Absolute Zero when he comes flying in. Counter jungle him early.  I've made Kha'Zix players quit just by taking both of their buffs on numerous occasions.

VS

Lee Sin

Medium

Lee Sin is only a threat if he gets successful ganks on your team early game.  If you're able to counter jungle him while he fails to gank you can set him very far behind.

VS

Maokai

Hard

It is hard to get away from Maokai if you get caught by him in the jungle.  He also has a strong team fight.

VS

Master Yi

Hard

If you're the only source of crowd control on your team to peel for the AD carry you're basically going to lose the game

VS

Nautilus

Easy

Counter jungle early and set him far behind.  If he doesn't have farm or ganks he's going to be weak.

VS

Nocturne

Medium

Nocturne can spell shield your Ice blast and is strong at a low level.  Peel him off of your carry with Absolute Zero.

VS

Pantheon

Easy

Counter Jungle early and if he doesn't have any success early you'll be fine. If he does, you need to communicate to your team about warding.

VS

Rek'Sai

Medium

Rek'Sai moves around the map very fast and can 1v1 a Nunu.  Focus on farming your own jungle and counter-ganking.

VS

Udyr

Medium

fairly easy to peel, try and deny as many jungle camps as you can from him

Standard Jungle routes Back to Top

 *  I use these routes against strong enemy junglers like kindred, graves, udyr, kayn, camille, nidalee

Blue Team

 
 Red -> Wraiths -> Bottom Crab
 look for potential ganks mid/bot ->
-> wolves -> Check Top Crab-> blue -> gromp ->
look for potential ganks top/mid

Red Team


 Blue -> Gromp-> Bottom Crab
look for potential ganks mid/bot ->
Check Top Crab-> Red -> Wraiths  ->
Look for potential ganks top/mid ->








True Nunu Route Back to Top

This is by far the most fun route and I've made people rage quit multiple times within 5 minutes.  

Find out where the enemy jungler is starting and walk in at about 1:40. contest whatever camp they are starting.

Example:enemy jungler is starting blue buff
walk in and attempt to steal the buff. if successful- Walk straight to their red through the mid lane(dont worry about being seen by the enemy team, your goal is to keep the enemy jungler level 1 for as long as possible). 
-Once both buffs are taken, proceed to counter jungle them OR clear your faster camps(WOLVES RED GROMP BLUE) then proceed to counter jungling them.

pros and cons Back to Top

Pros

Very easy champion to play and very fun to play when mastered
High jungle sustain
Very healthy tank
Great objective control with Consume+Smite
Doesn't need many items to help team

Cons

VERY little damage when maxing Consume aside from his ultimate
Doesn't win 1v1's against most enemy junglers 
has some of the worst wave-clear in the game without his ultimate
Can fall very far behind with early deaths(kind of universal)
