according to riot, so saying "I'm not a tank" is wrong. now if you want to say " I didn't go tank build" thats fine.

Uh no. Gragas and blitz, like Nasus are viable as both tanks and as either physical or AP dps. A Blitz who rushes a trinity "isn't a tank" because he won't have the ability to tank damage. Being a tank isn't defined by the words under the character's name.

Edit: Either way, why does it matter how they express to you that they aren't built to tank? Do you feel like posting your grammar nazi frustration on the forums?

Gragas is more naturally suited to be a tank than an AD or Ap hero because of his Drunken Rage damage reduction and low mana cost Body Slam.

I have seen nothing but fail come from an AP Gragas.

WRONG.


Nasus is only viable as a tank. DPS nassus are a waste of a champ slot.

Blitz is an initiator.
Nasus is a tank.
Gragas is an initiator and can be a tank.

Why DPS when you can do slightly less DPS and tank like a boss as well.

gragas is "technically" a tank? he's got damage reduction, high Hp pool and an initiation move, the bro is a full-on tank and initiator.

I never said that Nasus was better as a dps then as a tank, in fact I belive the opposite. That said I don't think that DPS Nasus is a "waste of a champ slot". If you itemize well hes quite viable.
