Summoner Spells

Back to Top ▲

Standard Jungle summoners.


Another option for nasus jungle would be running ghost and picking up the Summoners Wrath mastery.

Personally I'd prefer to run flash because you can get out of things more easily if you get caught or if you go for a flash steal on baron/dragon.

Runes

Back to Top ▲
Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed:
  • Use these quints to get around the map faster to clear and gank.
Greater Mark of Attack Speed:
  • These Marks are very helpful to clear camps faster
Greater Seal of Armor:
  • Standard armor seals for all junglers
Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist:
  • Standard tank runes for late game magic resistance.
  • Use these because you want to be tankier later in the game rather than early

Utility: 9

0/21/9

This is my own personal preference on how I like to do masteries on Nasus. The reason I use the 9 points in utility over offense is because i like to have to extra move speed/summoner cooldown/buff duration.  If you put 9 points into offense you really only get +15 ad at level 18, and 5% cooldown. The cooldown might help your early game a tiny bit but Nasus typically builds 40% cooldown anyways and I would rather have the extra movement speed/utility on Nasus.

Siphoning Strike (Q): Max Last
  • When you think of Nasus this is probably the first think you think about with his kit.
  • While this skill is very powerful it doesn't offer much when you rank it up.
  • Leave it at the lowest possible until you are forced to put points into it because the damage is not enough to max this skill after Spirit Fire.
Wither (W): Max Second
  • This is a very powerful CC it reduces the enemy's speed more over time
  • Use this on an ADC and you will force summoner spells in teamfights
  • Max this spell second for more slow.
Spirit Fire (E): Max First
  • This is one of the strongest skill in Nasus' kit it reduces a lot of armor and is good for zone control.
  • You will be surprised at how much damage this spell actually does when you max it.
  • This skill should be maxed first because of how powerful the zone control and armor shred it provides.
Fury of the Sands (R): Put points in at 6/11/16
  • This skill has a lot of power when you first put a point into it if you buy a pink ward with the extra hp and % magic damage you can sneak a dragon
  • Max this as soon as possible

Items

Start With
Core
Situational

~Start~

1039_32.png2003_32.png
  • This should almost always be your starting build you can swap out 1 health potion for a ward if you want because your lifesteal will keep you healthy in while clearing camps.

~First Back~

1080_32.png
  • Pick this up because it will help you clear jungle camps faster and it builds into 3207_32.png
1001_32.png
  • Boots are always good to help you move around the jungle
2043_32.png
  • Pink ward will help you sneak dragon at level 6
3067_32.png
  • If you have the extra money for this item buy it.
  • Otherwise save up for this item next.

~Second Back and Beyond~

3207_32.png
  • This should be the first big item you rush it is very cost efficient for the stats it gives you.
3190_32.png
  • This should be your second item no matter what it is a very good team fighting item and gives you 10% CDR to spam your skills.
3143_32.png3065_32.png
  • The next item you build will be very situational.
  • If you need the armor and they have auto attack based champions buy the randuins.
  • If they have a heavy ap team you can build spirit visage to complete your 40% cdr build.
  • You should try to finish one of the items if you have the gold and it should be your mid/late game goal to finish one of these items.

~End Game Builds~


End Game Build vs Slows

3207_32.png3190_32.png3065_32.png3143_32.png3078_32.png3280_32.png

  1. You want to rush your 3207_32.png and 3280_32.png (Skip the homeguard enchantment for now)
  2. 3190_32.png Should be your next item after you get this you can build components of 3078_32.png or 
  3. 3065_32.png/3143_32.png should be your next 2 items (refer to above section for explanation)
  4. Finish 3078_32.png if you haven't already and get Home guards now.
End Game vs AD

3207_32.png3190_32.png3065_32.png3143_32.png3068_32.png3260_32.png
  1. Same the rest of the builds you want to rush 3207_32.png and get 1001_32.png somewhere in between rushing the 3207_32.png.
  2. Build a 3190_32.png next fitting in 3047_32.png somewhere while building the locket.
  3. 3065_32.png/3143_32.png should be your next 2 items since you're going against an AD heavy team build the 3143_32.png first.
  4. Finally finish off your build with 3068_32.png and get the Homeguard enchantment.
End Game vs AP

3207_32.png3190_32.png3065_32.png3143_32.png3102_32.png3270_32.png
  1. RUSH 3207_32.png and get 1001_32.png while rushing if you have extra money feel free to upgrade to 3117_32.png or 3009_32.png.
  2. Build 3190_32.png next 
  3. 3065_32.png/3143_32.png should be your next 2 items. You'll want the spirit visage first against a heavy AP team.
  4. 3102_32.png I like to pick this item up against heavy AP teams because it provides an extra layer of protection from poke with the shield.
  5. If you haven't already pick up your boot enchantment

~Late Game Items~


3068_32.png
  • Pick up this item only if you need to get more armor, health, damage and if you have 3143_32.png.
3110_32.png
  • This item is a great armor and cooldown item.
  • You can substitute this for your spirit visage if you want.
  • This also is really good against a double ad composition.
3143_32.png
  • This is a great item for when you need to stick to people and has a great active ability both offensively and defensively.
3083_32.png
  • This is a really good item to sustain yourself against a poke composition 
  • this item also has good synergy with 3065_32.png
3102_32.png
  • This item also helps a lot against heavy ap/poke compositions

~Situational Items~


3050_32.png
  • This is a really strong team item giving everyone on your team a lot of effective gold.
  • This item also helps you hit your CDR cap a lot faster.
3074_32.png
  • This is a strong item for clearing you can E>Hydra>Auto and pretty much clear a whole wave.
  • I wouldn't really recommend buying this item unless you were really really really far ahead.
3139_32.png
  • This item is good if the enemy team has a lot of hard CC this also gives you a speed boost which is helpful.
3154_32.png
  • No.
  • This item unless they give it some stats that are useful and buff the passive a lot it's pointless to get.
3156_32.png
  • This is a great item to counteract burst mages but there are better choices for magic resistance.

Ward up and try not to fall behind early. Once you get an armor item or two he won't be able to do much to you.

I just tried this, and the clear time is horrible! And without maxing Q it takes for-friggin'-ever to to get stacks.
