So I've seen Nasus jungle in competitive play and decided to give it a try. I've only played 3 normal games with it so far, all victories (10/5/22, 6/5/30, and 7/5/13 respectively), and I could easily see him becoming one of my main junglers. Any tips/advice/comments from people experienced with him in the jungle are greatly appreciated.

Runes:
3x MS Quints
9x AS Marks
9x AR Seals
9x MR Glyphs

Masteries:
0/21/9

Skill Order:
R>E>W>Q

Build:
Machete+5pots>Spirit Stone>Boots>Locket>Boots of Mobility>Warmogs>Iceborn Gauntlet
From here it's pretty situational. If the enemy team is doing a lot of magic damage, I'll pick up a Negatron Cloak or build a Runic Bulwark if the support doesn't have one. If the enemy team does mostly attack damage (usually the case these days), I get a Sunfire Cape.

Jungle Route:
wolves>blue>wraiths>golems>(unless presented with a good ganking opportunity) red>gank

Why not max your Q first instead of E?

I think he means which order he uses his skills... Because maxing R first is impossible.

Actually no, your jungle clear is wicked fast if you max the Spirit fire first. You shred the monsters armor with some pretty big AOE damage. Unfortunately, in doing so the cooldown on your Q is unbearably long and you miss on more Q's than you would in lane, it's harder to gauge when to SS unless you're constantly keeping track of it's damage

Well, lifesteal quints are pretty useful on Nasus. And perhaps change AS reds for arm pen.
