Nasus is stupid now.

Ulting wither now has 800 range, versus 700. This solidly out-ranges any ADC, compared to nearly out-ranging any ADC before.

His Q is dirt-cheap at all levels, meaning he's not ultra strapped for mana at all times.

They did fix a bug where Siphoning Strike critical strikes were dealing more damage than intended, but people who didn't rely on critical strikes are still golden when it comes to being tanky and indestructible.


He has very few truly bad matchups top. Rumble and Singed are probably his two worst, but he's stopped having as many bad matchups, since he can more easily use wither as a laning tool.

And due to the nerf of lifesteal for everyone else, Nasus's crazy innate lifesteal is lovely, especially if he builds a vamp scep first back (which he can now, since a mana item is no longer mandatory)



He guarantees ganks, escapes ganks well,
Siphoning Strike
Fixed a bug where Siphoning Strike critical strikes were dealing more damage than intended
Mana cost reduced to 20 at all ranks from 20/25/30/35/40

Fury of the Sands
Now increases attack range by 50 and cast range by 100 while active
Mana cost reduced to 100 from 150


My idea is:
boots + 3pot
vamp scep
Shroud/Chalice (situational enemy laner)
Tabi/Merc/Swiftie situational
FH
Triforce
Situational tankiness (Mercurial for MR+damage, BT if tankiness isn't needed, ghostblade if you gotta go fast, Warmog's if you feel like being broken, etc. etc.)

inb4 nasus sees tournament action --> riot nerf

Teemo destroys nasus.

So does Olaf.

Also, Zekes might not be bad on Nasus.

SV + Zekes.

It seems odd to me that Riot would want Nasus to be particularly viable.

His bad matchups are truly bad. But he can go even against more lanes than people give him credit for imo.
