  • Smite is standard for Junglers
  • Save smite to steal an enemy buff

  • Flash is also very standard on Junglers
  • You can flash into a better position to get a good ult off.

Runes

Back to Top ▲

Greater Mark of Attack Speed:

  • I like running attack speed on my nunu jungle because it works well with his passive to give him free spells
  • I also run this because with the buff from consuming lizard buff you get more auto's off meaning you get more damage off.
  • The auto attack also helps you clear the small creeps faster so you can move on from camp to camp

Greater Seal of Armor:

  • Very Standard for junglers
  • Even though your consume gives you sustain you're still going to need the armor it provides a safer jungle clear.

Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist:

  • You're going to want the scaling magic resistance because you have very high HP scaling per level and you are going to be a lot tankier later game.

Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed:

  • These quints paired with level 1 Blood Boil (w) you're going to move faster than almost everyone in the game even if they have +2 boots.

Utility: 9

0/21/9

21 in defense is what you should be running on all tank type junglers.
  • Bladed armor helps your early clear 
  • You will want to switch Hardiness/Reinforced Armor (Armor) and Resistance/Evasive (MR) depending on the enemy team
  • Oppression is a must have because your E and R will slow them consistently which gives you 3% damage reduction from the champs you have slowed.

9 in utility is the next best option for Nunu.
  • The extra movement speed helps you get around the map to clear camps, counter jungle, place wards, and set up for objectives.
  • 10% reduced summoner spell cooldown is helpful because your smite is going to be up more often to help you clear faster and secure objectives more easily.
  • Buff duration is also helpful for counter jungling you have a longer blue / red buff that will allow you to be safer in the enemy jungle.
  • the other 2 points can be put into increased cast range for your trinkets or a shorter cooldown on your recall, I prefer the mana regen.

TL;DR: R>Q>E>W 

Consume (Q):

Lets go over the strengths of each different type of buff from the jungle creeps.
Lizard-Type:
  • Lizard-type monsters grant Nunu’s attacks and spells additional magic damage equal to 1% of Nunu’s maximum health.
  • Nunu has one of the highest base HP and highest scaling HP/level.
  • Around level 6 you’ll have ~1400 HP and you will be doing 14 extra damage which after a few hits / spell casts adds up.
  • Golem-Type:
  • Golem-type monsters grant 10% increased size and maximum Health.
  • With this buff complements the Lizard buff very nicely.
  • At higher health values this will give you a few extra points of damage.

Wolf/Wraith-Type:

  •          Wraith or Wolf-type monsters grant 15% movement speed for 3 seconds after Nunu kills a unit.
  •          This can be very helpful when trying to evade enemies through the jungle.
  •          The quick burst of speed will help you get away from the enemies.
  •          If you last hit a wolf/wraith camp with consume you can run to your other camps or to a lane faster.
  •          This may seem useless on paper but can save you a couple seconds when running around clearing or ganking.
-Overall his Q is very powerful for clearing, buff control, and counter-jungling.
-You should be maxing this skill second because you get more damage/healing/buff duration from each rank.
-This skill can be maxed last if your team has adequate buff control and  you need more team fighting power.



 Blood Boil (W):

  • This is a very strong spell but has received many nerfs to it since the end of season 2 and beginning of season 1.  But that doesn't mean that it's a useless skill.
  • This skill in normal circumstances should be kept at level 1 until you absolutely need to level it up.
  • The only circumstance that you should be maxing this spell second is when you need the extra damage in team fights and your AD carry has fallen behind a little bit.
  • At level 5 this spell almost gives you the attack and move speed of a phantom dancer which is a lot of extra gold for your AD carry.
  • Be sure you are casting this on someone who needs both parts of the buff unless all your AD teammates are dead.


Ice Blast (E):

  • This is your primary damage source on Nunu.
  • This spell with a tiny bit of cooldown reduction can be very pesky because you can keep an enemy permanently slowed.
  • This ability scales extremely well with ability power. (1 to 1 ratio)
  • If you get ahead and build a little bit of AP you will be doing a ton of damage with this spell and your ultimate.
  • Try to use this spell on the enemy AD carry if possible because it reduces his movement speed and attack speed.



Absolute Zero (R):

  • EMPIRE!
  • This spell is a channeled ability and takes a while to figure out when to cast it

Items

Start With
Core
Situational

~ CORE ~

Starting Item:

1039_32.png2003_32.png2044_32.png
  • You want to start with a ward to be able to keep track of the enemy jungler.
  • Your sustain is ridiculous and you don't need to waste any more money on health potions. 

First Trip Back:

3205_32.png3067_32.png3207_32.png
  • On your first trip back you want to rush your Spirit of the Ancient Golem because with your W you move fast enough to not need to get boots on your first trip back.

Second and Beyond Trip Back:

1028_32.png1001_32.png
  • You're going to want to get a health crystal and boots on your second trip back if you have more gold get either a Locket or Bulwark.
3190_32.png
  • BUY THIS ITEM IT HELPS YOUR TEAM OUT IN TEAMFIGHTS!!
  • p.s. don't forget to use it.
1011_32.png
  • Nunu scales very well off of Health
  • He's got natural scaling defensive stats, and the Lizard portion of the Consume (Q) buff scales up with more HP.
  • This item can be built into many different items depending on what your team needs.
  • If you need more damage you can build a 3068_32.png
  • If you need to get tankier you can build 3143_32.png3083_32.png

Heavy AD build:

3068_32.png3065_32.png3143_32.png3190_32.png3207_32.png3260_32.png
  • This is a standard build against a heavy AD team
  • This is your item priority: 
  1. 3207_32.png
  2. 1001_32.png3190_32.png3065_32.png
  3. 3260_32.png
  4. 3068_32.png3143_32.png
  • Ideally you won't be getting  all of these items but if you do this is an ideal build VS a heavy AD team.

Heavy AP build:

3001_32.png3065_32.png3143_32.png3207_32.png3260_32.png3190_32.png
  • Standard build vs Heavy AP team
  • This is more common now as teams are starting to run double AP compositions
  • You will still be getting Ninja Tabi because you already have the tenacity from Spirit of the Ancient Golem
  • If you really need the extra MR you can buy Merc Threads but it isn't recommended
  • To determine whether you get a Randuins or Spirit Visage as your 4th big item you need to see if you need the MR at that instant if so get Spirit Visage otherwise get a giants belt first then evaluate your situation again.
  • You can always go Giants belt then Negatron if you need the HP and MR that's about 150 gold more than getting the pieces of Spirit visage.

Support oriented build:

3207_32.png2045_32.png3001_32.png3065_32.png3143_32.png3190_32.png

  • Sight stone is really good on Nunu to get vision control of their jungle so you can counter jungle the camps and keep track of the enemy jungler.

Baron Cheese Build:

3206_32.png3263_32.png3024_32.png
  • You're going to be attempting to do baron at 15 minutes.
  • You need to take the 3rd blue buff of the game and with the Glacial shroud you will have close to 40% CDR.
  • Your Skill progression should be Q>E>W then max Q first and E second.
  • Try to get your laners to push up and then get a pink ward on baron and go HAM.

~ Situational ~


3001_32.png
  • This item is good if you need the extra damage against a heavy AP team.
  • This is also good if you need the extra magic penetration for your team.
  • Only get this item if you need the extra damage and you have another AP on your team who would benefit from this.
3025_32.png
  • This item isn't that great on Nunu 
  • You should only get this item if you're far ahead it gives you superglue to an enemy of your choice.
3027_32.png
  • This item is pretty good for Nunu in the lane but costs too much to buy it as a jungler
3065_32.png
  • This item will help you hit the CDR cap a lot faster
  • This item provides a lot of magic resistance and improves the healing from consume.
3151_32.png
  • This item gives you a lot of damage because it burns without needing a rylais
  • You also get HP which scales with your Lizard Consume buff
3157_32.png
  • This is a very situational item it provides armor, AP, and a for of survivability 
  • You don't really need this item unless you get really far ahead and if the enemy team has a lot of burst potential
3023_32.png
  • Eh... naw
  • It's a relatively troll item.
3060_32.png
  • Same as Twin Shadows this item is relatively troll and doesn't provide much
  • If you are playing a split push composition that is the only time you would be buying this item.
3091_32.png
  • This item is not the greatest on Nunu because you need to stay on the enemy for 4 autos before the item is actually worth it.

3102_32.png
  • This item provides great defenses against poke oriented teams
  • If you need more survivability against a poke composition definitely pick this item up.
3155_32.png/3156_32.png
  • This item isn't the greatest on Nunu even though you are auto attacking a lot there are items that would provide more damage
  • It is a relatively troll item on Nunu it provides a shield against magic damage but it shouldn't be picked up until you have 5 other items built

Please note how to kite the Baron because many people don't know how.
I go more on the utility tree and max Consume because Nunu's Q is broken. Also I get more movement speed and I will never require faster boots.
I've given you a like because I do have respect for high ELO players and the way they think.

Wow man, what a difference, i used to play nunu following another guide which told to max Q first, it was ok, but wow, doing it this way, i was more dependant of blue, a little, but way better ganks and way better jungle too, the snowball actually hits hard, before checking this guide i was letting E for last, i guess it depends, but going your way worked amazingly smooth

If you get bursted by AP and if the enemy team is heavy AP you get it for the shield. Normally you won't be buying this it's a really troll item.

sightstone on nunu ??
0
3 months ago
As Nunu you want to invade and steal the enemy jungle
to do that good vision control is required so sightstone = one time investment free wards every base visit also it gives the team an idea where the enemy jungler is and it gives you health which is good for support tank jungler like Nunu

Hello !
They didn't buff baron, but the item spirit of the spectral wraith changed ! No more spell vamp :/
Maybe this is it ! (and if you didn't have consume at level 5, it changes too !

With the quints and your w you don't need boots ;)
Take machete to clean jungle faster, and you'll be able to gank faster ^^
