Tips Against Nasus in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

MarkFromSingedMains says “TAKE PHASE RUSH! If you proxy he will free stack, if you lane he will oppress you. His W is excellent at shutting you down in teamfights and his raid-boss status midway through the game is something Singed can't handle. The most you can do if Nasus gets ahead is goo fling and hope to kill the squishier enemies. Don't forget that his E shreds armour so most trades with Nasus are losing ones, on top of this his passive healing outscales your Corrupting Potion/Doran's Ring.”

xPetu says “Recommended: Standard Runes & Ignite Tips: Your W blocks his Q. Passive shield his E poke. Disengage when he R's.”
PH45 says “Try to make use of his weak early game. Try to force him away from minions early levels and try to get the wave to bounce to you while you cheater reset. If you play smart you can win this matchup but later on his W's attack speed and movespeed slow will make it hard for you to kill him. Ask your jungler for a gank or even a dive if you can kill him since he will eventually scale to a raid boss.”
Drake6401 says “The game meta is shift in Nasus's favor and against Renekton so this has been moved up into Even. You beat him in most fights, Nasus wins lane if you can't kill him at least 3 times and deny him farm. A good Nasus knows how to farm under tower while you're forced to stay overextended. You need a competent jungler for this matchup so you can properly get a lead for your team while Nasus is small. Your JG should look to invade when you're pressed up, go for Herald and look for dives. Bad junglers will ignore Nasus top and let him free farm. Nasus has cheaper core items than Renekton so you may feel a temporary power shift when he completes his first armor item and boots. I rush a Last Whisper if he's scaling armor. Nasus is also a nightmare to fight if his jungler camps you. His Wither is basically your instant doom in many cases.”

I Am Goliath says “His early game is so weak this lane should be a breeze for you, another great thing about this matchup is his wither does not affect your W at all since it's a fixxed rate of fire, I personally like to build Cull in this matchup since you can get away with it, early on I push him into turret, but at lvl 6 onwards I like to try to keep the wave on my side of lane to make him come up to CS and then punish him, you only really have to be kinda scared when he uses his ultimate especially if he is running conqueror so sometimes I'll save my E and bait out his R by walking into him then just E away and wait for his ultimate to drop before reengaging. You outscale him hard and should be able to do way more in teamfights. ”

Sovereign Kitten says “Depends on the player but Nasus players either max (E) and deal a ton of Magic Damage with Doran’s Ring or build Spirit's Visage and focus entirely on trying to max out as many stacks as they possibly can with (Q), while maxing (W) which slows you for 95% (over a duration). This is why Phase Rush is so good coupled with the boots of swiftness, as we acquire 75% Resist to slow + UNIQUE 25% Resist to slow, they stack and work much better than Mercury's Treads. You should be focusing all of your efforts on preventing him every single cannon minion stack by blinding him before they die. You don't counter him outside of laning, he counters you severely late. ”

Rhoku says “TL;DR - EASY LANE. DON’T LET HIM STACK/DON’T EAT TOO MUCH POKE. PHASE RUSH IS RECOMMENDED. CONQUEROR WITH TENACITY STACKING WORKS AS WELL. DON’T FALL BEHIND NO MATTER WHAT. The Nasus matchup is somewhat difficult as if you ever fall behind, you will never be able to catch back up to him. He can win fights with an entire item behind sometimes because of his Ultimate which is depressing. The key is to stomp him early on in order to make sure you have a big lead by level 6. You are able to do this if he goes the normal Q max Nasus. The E max Nasus is a different story. He won’t be scaling as hard but he will be poking you down hard. The thing is, Doran’s shield or even second wind on its own is enough to negate it as long as you don’t eat every single E. He also has sustain with his passive. You should be freezing him off of the wave if he doesn’t have his ultimate/if its pre-6. The biggest problem when fighting Nasus is that ultimate makes him ridiculously tanky and cranks up his DPS to an unreal state. His wither stops you from kiting him properly. The clear way to counteract this is to bait out his ultimate and then disengage. Some Darius players go full tenacity (Merc boots, Legend:Tenacity, Unflinching). But the simpler way is to just take Phase Rush. It helps in early fights as he can’t disengage with Wither and it is great as you can just E+Auto+W him when he activates his ultimate. If you lose this lane, it is over. Build Cleaver into full tank and peel for your team. Be careful of ganks as he is great at setting them up.”
CFCryo says “Nasus W shuts down your primary damage method, so to try and "stop him", you can try big ad and a Box combo (Hook into Box) to burst him... But Level 6 and onwards, alongside Armor/Magic resist, he becomes impossible to kill for Thresh alone. However, lategame, Thresh has the means to peel Nasus of off anyone.”
Anoying bro5 says “Poke him the entire lane. Do not let him step up to farm, if he does, then punish him. Freeze the wave whenever possible. Riposte his Q damage, or his W if you can predict it. DO NOT fight him when he is in his ult. Make him use it then back off. In this match up you sadly have to mirror him the whole game to deny him from farming and scaling.”
Olaf Only says “You have to freeze the lane in this matchup to deny his lifesteal and Q farm. Trading your ultimate for his is fine. Nasus is impossible to kill with his R active* Your teamfighting is superior so try to just deny cs. ”

Polarshift says “Freeze against this guy and run him down when he greeds for cs early. If you let him stack by letting him freeze instead you're not gonna have a fun time after he gets some stacks and his ultimate.”

AST Raposo says “Easy to gank early game,he cannot 1v2 neither outplay you or you laner. But Its very important you destroy him to not let him get strong.”
bolun says “if you meet this guy at top , yeah... SLAP HIM AT ALL COST.”

lightrocket2 says “His wither lowers your attack speed, so getting resets with your passive is very very slow.”

temple1997 says “Nasus can use his Wither on you as soon as you engage and escape, if he doesn't Wither you the chances are he is stacked to hell and will out damage you before you can kill him.”
liserith says “Both late game threats, Nasus is a pain in the ass. You can destroy his early game, and deny him of his scuttles, but late game, his Q will hit HARD. He has additional CC with his W and E, and its very hard to get away from him. Most games won't go long enough for him to scale, so don't worry about him.”

Karthus man says “Nauses jungle is fairly weak, especially in the early game. He needs to power farm to actually do damage, and as long as you keep your distance, you should be able to beat him. Try to invade early and take his camps and make sure he doesn't get to fed by counterganking his ganks.”

Glasletter says “He hurts, but you can get a full combo off, kite him and let your laner kill him while he chases you like the dumb dog he is.”
SnakeTastic says “in endgame he could become a problem if youre ganking top and he has a very high amount of shield ”
