Quick tips to play Nautilus

Walk up to the enemy and look to engage. If they use their dash, use your

NautilusAnchorDrag

to hook them. If they don’t use a dash, keep walking until you’re in auto attack range and then root them with an auto.

While Nautilus is quite slow, you do have really good roaming potential as you have a lot of CC. Look to roam from base before heading back to the bottom lane.

Set up an ambush inside a bush and wait for the enemy to walk past before engaging. One catch can turn the game on its head and allow you to take an objective.
