Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png- Pretty much mandatory, it is just that good not to use, excelent for escapes and chases.

3.png~Just an amazing spell to shut down assassins and enemy carries early and later in game.

14.png- I don't like to use that much on Nunu, but can be useful to shut down sustain champions like Soraka and Mundo.

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

Typical support tank mastery, nothing much to be said here.


Sadly Nunu can't use Force of collossus very well so you have to stick with Bond of Stone, which is  one that strong or relevant for Nunu, but still doable.

Edit: With the New Patch, Bond of Stone has become a very reliable mastery, and finally Nunu has a Mastery that use and take advantage from it, a good buff to Nunu Overall.

(You can also evolve your  E at level 3 if you're not taking much damage from the enemies, as it gives a slight higher  amount of damage in lane.)


Visionarynunupassive.png- A simple forward spell, auto attack minions to win a no mana cost ability, a decent passive that allows you to spam your abilities a bit more, however do not auto attack minions that are ready to die, unless you have Targon!

Consumeconsume.png- A better ability in the jungle, but still decent in the laning phase,  combining with visionary, allows you to have some impressive sustain, it is also great to use as a substitute of smite  in case your jungles does not have it.

Blood boilbloodboil.png- While it might look unnoticeable early in the game, this abilty buffs attack speed and movement speed from one ally, this is was the reason why nunu support was so good, made teamfights easier with just a click of a button, it is still decent, but more during the late game. Always use it when engaging.

Ice Balliceblast.png- A very good damaging  and utility spell if you build some ability power it might hurt quite a bit, spam this on the enemy carry  and make him useless for a few seconds, very good for chasing and  to peel for your carry.

Absolute Zeroabsolutezero.png- This ability is arguably one of the hardest one to use, due to how easy it gets interrupted, even not fully channeled, does a good chunk of damage even without AP and forces many flashes. You can win teamfight with this ultimate.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    standard start
    Lucidy shoes for more spammable iceballs, sorcerer shoes to have more damage earlier, Mobility if you decide to roam a lot, pick what do you prefer. Don't forget to buy pinks!

Core Items

    these 2 items gives pretty much everything you need.
    example of a build against a balanced team
    A more fun and damage based build, unfortunately it's not very good if the other team knows what are they doing, but it's pretty hilarious to use. Morello>Haunting>Zhonya>Void, it's what I usually go, depending on the match ups, you might want Zhonya after Morello
    Against a Full Ad team

Situational Items

    replace with randuims if hey have plenty of auto attackers.
    you can pick one of these two items to replace randuims if they have a more ap heavy team, I pick more often Banshee for these cases, since can block an ability from an Ap feed enemy
    no Idea how you will have money for this, but you can replace liandry for this in the more AP focused build.
    I've started using this more often, it is a good replacement for Locket, and good to push lanes while teamfighting

Honestly it really depends on the skill of the player, playing it, a good bard will be a headache, but a bad one can be easily the best match up for you, it's basically a lottery.

She is annoying with her plants and damage, but you can consum her plants and she lacks sustain, this is more of a skill matchup.

Early Game Back to Top

Auto attack on minions to activate the passive and spam those ice balls towards the enemy carry, consume minions when needed, and acivate your w when engaging. Nunu can set up ganks easily using his e to slow opponents. and can be very handy to kill a drake since you will have two "smites" to kill it.



Mid Game Back to Top

Now that some towers have fallen, it's time for some small teamfights to happen and capturing objectives, with consume.png shouldn't be difficult, try to kill as many scutles, since  then give a fairly nice radius of vision. You are also a bit tankier at this point to be able to receive  few hits.

Now that you have a sightstone,  don't forget to put wards whenever they run out, and pinks too, wards win games.

Late Game Back to Top

Late game is all about getting objectives (Baron and Dragon) and sticking together as a team, Nunu has a simple job to do: Peel for your carry using your E, and place a good ultimate for either a good engage or disrupt the enemy team. Try to use your ultimate when they have used most of their cc, as you will be able to take most advantage from it, and so do your teamates.


Don't forget to use your Items passives, and always use Blood Boil on your carry, since at this point it becomes very strong, to the point you can use it again even before  buff finish it's duration. (woth the proper cooldown itemization.

Nunu is not a champion you can carry by yourself, so make sure to stick with the team and protect the most valuable element.

Extra Back to Top

Nunu support, if you are an older player, you probably remember how good he was back in season 2 and 3, however, with Riot nerfing every single ability of his, he was stripped from support role and went forgotten for a while. Nowadays you mostly see him as jungler, But With the last buffs from is E, lowering it's cooldown, it made him an interesting pick to choose, mostly due to how spammable and annoying the spell can be now, 2.4 second at 40 cooldown reduction, that is pretty much Insane.


While Nunu is stil far from a top tier support, and might seem a troll pick, he can still go pretty even against most of the supports, his ultimate is still an amazing disruptor ability and he can give decent peel for your carry, plus consume is perfect to guarantee those drakes and buffs.


I'l upload more of this guide in a future, still working on other things first. Working on another guide!

Thank you for reading, any feedback on making this guide better is welcome!

Update1-Word corrections, changed and created  new builds.
Update2- More grammar corrections.
Update3- Added more Match ups, also fixed more errors (English can be hard for non natives.)
Update4- Recent ultimate buffs and Q consume made him  slightly stronger, his Q in lane is still the same, but the Ultimate slow made him more easier to get more flashes. 
Update5 - Some build changes and mastery changes for the new season.
