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

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. ”

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.”

MrDomian says “Hit him early and destroy him with your R. Don't let him farm in early game. Run away when he uses his R. Very important is anty-heal - Bramble Vest.”
SaltCat says “You beat him early but , after 6 he becomes really really strong, he can easily 1v1 you if you dont have bork and a lead, never let him farm for free”
RTO says “Very easy matchup. Pressure and you out trade him. He is a ticking time bomb because at around 30 mins, he will start to beat you 1v1. ”

Raen says “After getting buffed he became more scary nowadays. Try to all in him at lvl 1, you need to punish him all the time for most of creeps he wants to stack. Time works in favor for Nasus so try to end game ASAP. You won't be able to kill him when he will get enough stacks to kill you. QSS is helpful to remove his AS and MS slow from W. Your E blocks his Q. Bork recomended vs Nasus.”

RTO says “He is squishier, and easier to cope with early game. Try to harass him off getting stacks, but be careful of an all in, especially post level 6.”

RTO says “Nasus outscales anyone late game, you want to shut him down early by being aggressive and denying him CS and stacks. End the game early.”

quinn adc says “Run MR runes because nasus will go E max and his only damage early is his E. Why Phase Rush? Well, think about how Nasus ever wins against Quinn. Nasus only wins with his W wither ability, where he slows you with wither, which also slows your Attack speed, and then walking up to you to cane you to death. Now, I go 5head mode on Nasus and counter his legit only way to win lol. If nasus EVER withers me, I then instantly proc phase rush. The Move speed from phase rush is nice, but I run it because it also applies 75% slow resistance, which actually renders Nasus Wither USELESS!!!! If he withers, you proc phase rush and now you're able to run away to safety until it wears off. Play the lane very aggressively early, deny stacks, and the most important thing is to try to weave autos level 6 onwards because we don't want to waste procing phase rush in later levels. If we accidently proc phase rush post 6, a good nasus will immediately wither after your PR is down and cane you to death. If you save it up, then he has no way to ever beat you in lane. Nasus has incredible lane sustain early, but extremely weak, so make sure to play bully mode because he can't do much if your PR is up. How to win early if nasus plays passive is to slow push the waves, then when it crashes, the wave will slow push back towards you, and when it does, you will FREEZE AND ZONE TO DENY NASUS FROM FARMING! Fun Fact: If you blind nasus right when he presses W, you will actually cancel his wither lmfao. This requires perfect timing of course, but very cool if you succeed with it :) Also, your Vault can cancel Nasus's Q if you time it correctly since it is programmed as an auto attack, so keep that in mind!”

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

Suseri says “Rather annoying to lane but after some items you win easy.”

Amatzu says “Playing against a Nasus, there aren't really any champion specific tips besides spacing and denying CS. A well placed Q can be the difference 12 more stacks from a cannon minion. The timing is hard, but once you get the timing down with good ping, you can shut down a Nasus early on and hope their team FFs.”
Violent Variable Volibear by Amatzu | Volibear Player
barbarianmode_on says “Slowpush, when he walks to farm Q him, rush bramble, boots and botrk (rushing 3 items at once is pretty hard)”

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.”
liserith says “Both late game threats, Nasus can be a pain in the ass. His clear is laughable; live in his jungle and make sure he regrets picking Nasus. Do not let him farm, and he is no more than a CC bot.”

DeleDulux says “He's strong only in late and very rare to find as opponent”
EAT PEOPLE WITH WARWICK by DeleDulux | Warwick Player
poopyOCE says “If you are playing top, freeze lane to prevent him from stacking stacks and push him away from your minion wave. Get an early lead and run him down if he greeds stacks. Be careful of lvl 6 power spike due to R, and avoid getting frozen by nasus as you wont have fun instead.”
On-Hit Warwick by poopyOCE | Warwick Player
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.”
bolun says “if you meet this guy at top , yeah... SLAP HIM AT ALL COST.”
