What's the main problem people have with nasus?

#1FootballFan2Posted 2/6/2013 4:32:25 AM
I've been playing him a little bit and ive been enjoying it, but it sucks having someone dodge over my pick. What exactly turns people off from him, I've had a lot of fun with IBG straight into tanky items and if I can manage to not feed the first 20 minutes its very easy to become extremely hard to kill.

People think he's useless based off of some criteria that makes the pros not likely to use him in a tournament that applies to maybe .5% of every game actually played in solo queue


basically a lot of people were dropped on their heads as children

People have a strong conception of him from Season 2, and don't realize how much stronger he is now.

Item Lifesteal was nerfed - his passive was not.

Armor shred became more useful - he has tons of it.

His Q's bonus damage now crits.

Wither is still as crazygood as ever.

Flat HP is stronger than resists relative to S2, and that's what his ult gives him.


Nasus is in a much better place than S2 - people are just slow on the uptake.

His early-game isn't god-awful, his midgame and on is great, and he can go mid and free-farm against almost any AP mid all day, or go top and out-trade many bruisers (or just out-sustain them).

He's still a late game terror, but most people know this and will harass the **** out of him in lane, and he's not great at escaping ganks. If I pick Nasus I know I'm going to get gang banged for the first 20 min of the game.

Idk man you guys really underestimate Nasus. Gold III and my nasus kdr is 10/5 with 3/4 wins. He's like singed rly. I just faced a teemo and just start off flask pots with tele, try to farm as much as you can, b, tele, and charge at Teemo with wither. People underestimate Nasus' strength tbh. His Q is on a low cd, E lowers armor, W removes a lot of attacking power in Teemo, Xin, Kayle etc. If you're just aggressive and make it your job to farm and stand your ground and make them realize you're a threat, you already won your lane. And Nasus is every bit as much of a hypercarry as Poppy. He does AD carry level damage with full build Maokai-like durability late game. He's extremely underrated. Honestly he feels like a boss to play from mid game on because you can 1v1 anyone. Hell even 2v1 if laning went well. Everyone will fear you. If they still underestimate you you get double kills. The key is to not be a ***** when you're playing him.
