“Recommended: Standard Runes & Ignite
Tips: Your W blocks his Q. Passive shield his E poke. Disengage when he R's.”
“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.
“He is Over-buffed since the preseason. Scales better than anyone else yet doesn't have that bad of an Early-Game. Once Nasus gets ahead he stays ahead.
Q-Poke Vitals on him whenever you have the chance, Keep the Pressure on but don't think that he's just a punching bag till he has stacks.
Get Executioner's Calling After Tiamat since his Q will start to heal him at that point.
Slow-Push Waves into his turret so he has a difficult time stacking up. DON'T LET HIM FREEZE!
When a Nasus walks up to your AA range the first thing he will do is use his Q, so Parry that(Good Nasus will bait your parry out so beware).
you beat nasus till the Mid-game so you should try to kill him before then.
If you roam, make sure you get objectives or else you're trading nasus stacks for nothing.”
Bonk vs Bonk, Yorick is much stronger early.
Nasus also has no dash so he is really vulnerable to ganks with the wall setup.
If Nasus manages to safely farm up and stack his Q he will be hard to deal with late.”
“Quite an easy lane, granted you don’t ever fall behind. Start Q and look to build passive and fight early on. He is fairly easy to kill until he is level 6 so be aggressive and look for a kill. After 6 I recommend using your auto range to get 2-3 free auto attacks with passive before all inning. He is pretty easy to beat until he gets a sheen and a decent amount of stacks however if you get ahead of him it is pretty easy to keep fighting him until he gets 2-3 items. Use minions to kite out wither and use your W on his Q if you can and you will be alright. He is also fairly easy to gank so if you have the wave pushing to you, freeze it and force him to over extend”
“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 BUT PHASE RUSH IS BETTER. 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.”
“You can kill him pre 6, but cant after 6. Its a farm lane. Look opportunities on other lanes.”
“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. ”
“Become difficult to all-in once he gets W. If it is AP Nasus, make sure you get the push on him and poke until he is forced out. Try to all in early.”
“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.”
