Quick tips to play Nasus

Stack’s mean a lot to Nasus- but not everything. It is better to miss a few than get yourself killed or lose a lot of health.

Nasus has to survive the early levels- so don’t bother fighting. It is better to wait and farm (get stack’s from your

Q) than to fight and maybe get a kill.

Don’t forget that you are part of a team. Try to group with your team and not focus solely on split push.
