Official Strategy

Playing with Nasus

  • When playing with nasus, be careful with the tanks in the beginning and late, because they are the most difficult to kill with nasus, farm the q and stay away from the tanks in the beginning, especially darius because with his q he regenerates the life that you take away when he is about to die.
  • Land the last blow with  Absorbing Hit will be decisive for the outcome of the game.
  • If you are alone,  Spirit Fire is an excellent way to repeatedly kill in lane. It can be bad if you are in a lane with 2 and you make your way too far. Find the right balance between the final blows of  Absorbing Strike and repeat kill in area of 鈥嬧媏ffect.
  • If you have low defenses, they will come after you even during your ultimate. Try to buy some survival items even from your DPS specialist.

Playing against Nasus

  • By transforming with his ultimate ability,  Nasus becomes one of the strongest in the league. Take on him only if you have a clear advantage.
  • Max Level Wither is a very effective way to counter Attack Damage characters. Try to avoid being trapped alone by him.
  • Nasus has a tendency to be dragged. Try not to attack him with all your Life.

Use of skills

  • Soul Eater will keep you in the jungle or solo lane with no trouble.
  • Continuously do the last one with hit with  Absorbing Strike will have a huge impact in the later parts of the game, and will be your main source of damage.
  • The damage of  Absorbing Strike works on turrets. Use it to throw them away quickly.
  • Using  Withering on your targets will make it easier to use  Spirit Fire before striking with  Absorbing Strike. What  Spirit Fire reduces the target's armor,  Absorbing Hit will hit a lot more.
  • Wither is the best option to stop champions who rely heavily on basic attacks.
    • With a large amount of cooldown reduction (40%),  Nasus can keep  Wither almost continuously (5 seconds duration, 6,6 cooldown). However, Tenacity can counteract this effect.
  • Be careful when using  Spirit Fire near your tower when the line is pushed, you will lose a few last hits to  Absorbing Strike.
  • During the lines phase,  Spirit Fire is a great way to keep the enemy from getting close to do the last hit on your minions, but it comes at a high mana cost.
  • Fury of the Sands can be used defensively or offensively, as it allows to trap or escape enemies, since it also provides a large amount of life.
