Skill analysis

Nasus is a champion with the common five abilities sets of one passive with two components and four active abilities. In this Nasus guide, let’s see what are her abilities in LoL Wild Rift, and when you can use which skill to be in the top form in the current rank season.

Passive – Soul Eater

  • Gains 12% Physical Vamp.

The passive helps Nasus to sustain in the early game as he is very weak in the early game. As his damage increases with more stacks, he heals himself through his passive.

Skill 1 – Siphoning Strike

skill 1

Empowers next attack within 10 seconds to deal additional 25 physical damage. If Siphoning Strike kills the target, its damage is permanently increased by 4. Killing champions, large minions, monsters increase Siphoning Strike’s damage by 8 instead.

This is the trump card of Nasus. The more stacks he has, the more fierce he is. Without stacks, Nasus is very weak in every stage of the game. The skill is simple, after activating the ability, Nasus has to kill the minions or enemies or monsters to gain a stack.

Skill 2 – Wither

skill 2

Slows enemy movement by 35% and Attack Speed by 22.5% for 5 seconds. The Movement Speed slow increases to 45% over the duration. A very handy ability that slows the movement speed and attack speed of the enemy. The skill is equally useful while ganking or getting escaping enemies. The ability is very annoying for enemy champions, almost making them powerless.

Skill 3 – Spirit Fire

skill 3

Creates a flaming zone, dealing 55 magic damage (55+40%). The zone persists for 5 seconds, dealing 11 magic damage (11+12%) over time and reducing armor by 15%. The ability deals with AoE damage along with the reduction of the armor of those above it. The ability is very useful during the early game while lanning and tower push.

Skill 4 – Fury of the Sand

skill 4

Enhance himself to gain 300 Health, 25 Armor, and Magic Resist for 15 seconds. Deals Magic damage to nearby enemies equal to 3% (3+0.01%) of their health during the duration. Siphoning Strike cooldown is reduced by 50% during the duration.

The ability is a major boost to Nasus’s abilities. It turns Nasus into a huge God-like structure with increased health, armor, and reduced cooldown of damage dealing first ability. The ability is very very effective during the late games with all the team fights and ganking.

Skill Up Methods for Nasus

Skill up the Ultimate whenever it is available. Regarding other skills, upgrade the 1st ability, then the 2nd ability, and lastly the 3rd ability. But first, unlock every ability, then follow the chronology.

League of Legends: Wild Rift Nasus Gameplay Tips

We already know that Nasus is a Baron lane champion and thrives in the later stages of the game. Always remember that the Wild Rift’s Map is a mirror so make sure you understand the map side before starting to lane. The ideal and strict rule for Nasus is to increase his stacks as much as possible. According to his gameplay, we can break it down into three phases. Our League of Legends: Wild Rift Nasus guide includes the perfect game plan for the early, mid, and late game.

Early Game

In the early game, the objective is simple. Wait for the minions and try killing them with the first ability activated. There is no other way to excel Nasus. There is no need to play aggressively until and unless you are sure of a kill.

The usual way would be to play a passive role and get the timing right to attack the minions to get the stacks. Nasus is very weak in the early game, so playing aggressive will result in loosing the lanning phase and the stacks.

Mid Game

In mid game, Nasus is a support for getting the overall objective. By now, Nasus would have got some damage with decent stacks. So helping out taking dragons and rift would be ideal. But still Nasus wouldn’t be that strong to take down strong opponents.

The Ultimate will be a boost during this stage but the result will be dependent on the number of stacks. If Nasus has got some stacks from killing enemy champions, then he would be a killer. Else, it is better to focus on the stacks and wait for the late game.

Late Game

As described early, Nasus is like a God-like champion in the late game. With all core items and a good number of stacks, Nasus is undefeatable. He can deal damage as well as take most in return. With increased stacks, he can almost take half the health of enemy ADCs and assassins.

With the ultimate, he would be like tearing the enemies apart and storming into enemy territories. He can push turrets at a very fast rate so try to split push whenever ultimate and teleport are available. With the teleport ability unlocked with the item build, he can instantly get to team fights for crowd control.

Final thoughts

Nasus is a great champion who are patient and can farm for a long period of time. The longer and better you farm, the more fierce you can be in the late game. The one shot kills in the late game is something every player would like to have. In terms of difficulty, Nasus is easy to play when one gets the gist of farming and getting the stacks. Nasus is one of the most preffered champion in the Wild Rift, due to his game changing abilities in the late game.
