Why isn't Nasus jungle a thing?

In S2, I guess he wasn't an AOE jungler so that might've debilitated his speed. The way I see it, just about every jungle minion is a free Q stack, he has a pretty good slow, his passive is lifesteal, and it's not like he doesn't have an AOE ability. What was the issue? Also, with S3 jungle supposedly giving more gold he should be better off right? I'm gonna have to try this sometime soon.

he might be in S3 too soon to tell. and Q can get farmed faster in lane than jungle which should be your main goal with him.

Because an efficient jungler gets half the amount of CS as a laner.

timer Q to last hit = slow clear or take tons of pointless dmg.

Clearing wraith takes 10-15 secs for high tier jungler, that is 2 SS CD. Pretty much apply to all camp, you won't be SS last hit half a camp.

Are you implying he doesn't? So it goes back to him having slow clears?

And you don't have to get every Q stack. Or is that too crippling for him?

Nasus jungle really sucks. I've tried it, it's really bleh.

With monsters being stronger, it'd just make Nasus easier to counterjungle since his 1-6 is lol.

If you dont get every Q you can possibly get on Nasus, why not play any other champion? Is his wither really that strong of a CC that Nasus must be used no matter how gimp his Q is?

Therein lies the problem. He's just... unloved (or rather outclassed).
