Nasus Matchups Overview

Nasus General information

Nasus tips and tricks

Stacks Siphoning StrikeQ mean a lot for Nasus, but surviving the laning phase is more important. Be prepared to give up a few stacks Siphoning StrikeQ in order to keep your health bar topped up.

As Nasus isn’t very strong in the early game, try and avoid fighting. If you get killed early on or blow Flash, you’ll be vulnerable and will fall behind.

Nasus is a late-game monster and should look to split push during the mid and late game. But, if your team needs you in team fights, be prepared to group and help your team.
