Nautilus Matchups Overview
Nautilus General information
Hold on to your Q until the enemy has miss positioned or used their escape ability. Using your Q and missing it will leave you vulnerable to damage and poke.
When the enemy is sieging one of your Towers or is trying to poke, use your Q to catch out them out of position while they’re overextended. Picking someone off is a good way of winning a fight or preventing the enemy from taking an objective.
While Nautilus is quite slow, you do have really good roaming potential as you have a lot of CC. Look to roam after recalling before heading back to the bottom lane.
