So what is the consensus on what people thought would be a overpowered hero?

I'll start with saying I do very much enjoy Nasus, his skills are interesting and have a great deal of synergy. His animations are smooth, his model is fantastic, and the voice actor one of the best.

I will say though I am a bit underwhelmed, he is incredibly squishy for what is supposed to be a melee tank/carry (I'm not quite sure what his role has been defined as yet) Such to the point where you NEED your ultimate to survive team fights, and beyond that you need to prey you aren't focused down in enough time for your damage to ramp up and bring your life steal to a sustainable level.

I think he could use a tweak in base health and armor, nothing too large but it will help, maybe a small (5-10%) damage reduction for the first few seconds of his ult. As it is, if you see a large gray dog, you kill it. And to compensate MAYBE reduce the total +damage you can accumulate (I hit over 800 in a practice game at a LAN the other day)

Nonetheless he can still be a force to be reckoned with, I just don't want to see him go the road of Ryze and be left as a PUB stomper with no competitive staying power.

Also Sheen OWNS on him.

I rarely see him as an effective character. I'd like to make sure everything working properly before any balance tweaks are made.

Such as?

Very effective farming hero if your not being overran in a lane. Meki pendant + Spirit fire pretty much wipes out every creep wave after level 5. Solo'ing mid is also very powerful. The only current issue I have is a case of "BIGBLACKTHINGKILLIT"itis when I use my ult, so I've taken to going a tank build to prevent it. Its too bad really, I'd love to see how high I could crit with 600 attack.

This is true. This is also why I think I'm going to start playing with a Kayle so I can get a little bit of that invun shield love. I wanna see a 1500 crit.

Isn't Kayle bugged at the moment with a bogus AP ratio for rightous fury?

Possibly, but I was referring to the fact that I die instantly with my ult up because they like to target big heroes (see: Cho'gath).

I think his effectiveness in a game is very situational more so than others and that you desperately want to close the distance quickly when engaging.
