Looking for a 1350 IP Champion to buy
Nevermind,brough Nasus,looked at his counters
"While transformed,Nasus is the stronger than most of the Champions of the Legaule"
I was like okay,must've been nerfed or something
Instant Turret Dive with transformation
Hardly took any damage,and killed the one i was Changing at
Simphoning strike seemed unpratical sine i had to kill minions to power up(Also worked on turrets,but didn't brother with that)
Turns out its quite easy to kill minions(Didn't notice because i minded killing champs more than Minions,and let my Promote spell do my job)
Soul Eater also turned out quite userfull,didn't notice it levered up with me
Nasus's Q being unreliant on items for damage means that all you really need is a triforce, at which point you can build full tank, while still dealing great damage through the 5% max hp drain on all nearby enemies converting to attack damage while your ult is active, and the +400-500 endgame bonus damage every 3 seconds with your Q.
In higher levels/elo, Nasus has somewhat fallen out of favour as a solo top lane due to his reliance on farming, and the relative ease with which he is countered, simply by putting a strong ganker in the jungle who can babysit top through the critical levels, at which point it's easy to zone and harass with the standard top picks.
He's an old as shit champion who has no mobility in his kit, favouring the old champion design doc of "mobility is for mages, damage is for carries, tankiness and cc is for everyone else," with Nasus falling into the last category.
With the new focus on putting decent mobility skills on almost everyone (except for, ironically, the newest release, who goes back to Nasus-type kits), you'll find yourself most likely outclassed by anyone who knows how to play, because there is no kite tail funnier to watch than Nasus.
Of course, it doesn't really matter what other people say about it, until you actually experience it for yourself.
