So, why are so many pros using Jungle Nasus?

#1centurion911Posted 3/9/2013 5:28:17 PM
Is it his high scaling with his Q?

Is it the insane utility for his Wither?

Is it some other reason, or a combination of the two?

Does anyone know?

Probably because of the bonus he gets from killing big monsters with his Q makes it not completely wasted effort and this frees up top lane for another heavy hitter. Wither ganks are still ridiculous and having a Nasus on the team is almost always a boon.

TOTAL MAGIC DAMAGE: 110 / 190 / 270 / 350 / 430 (+ 120% AP)
ARMOR REDUCTION: 20 / 25 / 30 / 35 / 40

That's huge as well.

Yeah, except using jungle Nasus before the Q buff was a horrible idea.

Oh wait, its dennis, nvm.

1) Nasus has pretty good ganks
2) Nasus can be the fastest jungler with just spamming Q or the slowest and most powerful by making sure to last hit with Q.

I wish I knew how Wither is balanced when you have CDR, besides the AD carry getting Cleanse/QSS. 95% AS and MS slow at max rank. Probably the strongest single target slow in the game.

It is, second only to the box.

Actually i would like to know how much ms and as somebody needs for the box to be stronger on a single target because there are minimum values for ms and as.
