Quick tips to play Nautilus

Hold on to your

NautilusAnchorDragQ

until the enemy has miss positioned or used their escape ability. Using your

NautilusAnchorDragQ

and missing it will leave you vulnerable to damage and poke.

When the enemy is sieging one of your Towers or is trying to poke, use your

NautilusAnchorDragQ

to catch out them out of position while they’re overextended. Picking someone off is a good way of winning a fight or preventing the enemy from taking an objective.

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