General advice on how to play against Nasus
These champs are strong against Nasus at most phases of the game. They’re listed based on their win rate against Nasus.
Laning Against Nasus

Laning Against Nasus

Nasus doesn’t want to fight in the early game. Instead, he wants to focus on farming and stacking his Siphoning StrikeQ. Try to fight him when he is focused on stacking as he may focus on the farm rather than fighting you- which will allow you to gain a health advantage.

Do not push Nasus under his turret as it allows him to farm safely. Instead, freeze the lane towards your side of the map so he has to overextend for farm.

Once Nasus has some levels behind him and has multiple points in his WitherW, he will have good gank set up. You’ll need to play safer if the wave is closer to his side of the map during this time so you don’t die from ganks.
