Nasus's


"Nasus's" is correct.


When it ends in S you don't need to add the extra S to show possession

it's just Nasus'


Yes you do, you don't add an extra S when an S has already been added to indicate a plural. "It is my brothers'. " And "It is James's and Nils's."

Rule two:

NOTE: Although names ending in s or an s sound are not required to have the second s added in possessive form, it is preferred.
