“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. ”
“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.”
“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.”
“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”
“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. ”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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!”
“easy matchup with the new season 11 items. Take phaserush, build a healing cut item and get divine sunderer.”
