He is one of the best top 5v5 picks. As soon as you learn him, you literally cant ever do bad.
for example.
situation 1: Nasus Vs Garen. you know you cant beat garen, so you farm from behind waves with your E if he pushes, and farm q every now and then. don't ever engage. you will get a decent amount of farm

situation 2: Nasus Vs Singed. singed does no damage to you due to your tankiness / life steal. feel free to farm Q and enjoy the free win.

this is how every game goes for me as nasus in ranked.

Yes, Nasus is an extremely powerful champion right now. The competitive scene especially in EU is starting to catch on to this and I believe Hotshot is finally starting to bring him into CLG's tournament games. If you do not shut down Nasus' farm in lane or you happen to let the game simply go on for too long, you're in for a lot of trouble.

This. I believe team Sypher played him in one of the IEM games earlier today, and did incredibly well.

He's extremely viable. Grab a regrowth pendant and head top. Your HP regen and lifesteal will counteract any harass you receive. Farm up like a boss.

Nasus is really good in organized play. I find him frustrating to run in solo queue, if not quite bad; he's totally dependant on farming a lane and hoping the game is still winnable at 20 minutes. You can generally assume these things if you're on a team that has a clue. And you can't assume a team with a clue in solo queue.

That said, he's totally viable. He's just got limitations of his own to contend with. In solo queue, I'd be more likely to take Lee Sin or Irelia, or Jungleturne.

You're joking right... 100 cs is 300 damage added to an already scaling Q on a 2 second cool down that works with sheen... 100 cs is not even half ass hard to earn if you solo top

A **** good nasus players is one of the best things you could have on your team in this game atm.

Lets take carry vs Nasus. R - W - E and couple of Qs. Carry is dead.
