i agree.

I try to even out his AP with some survivability.

I usually end up going something along the lines of:

Chalice (start the game with meki + 2hp pots)
Boots of Swiftness (usually try and finish rod of ages before i upgrade speed to swiftness)
Rod of Ages
Banshees (game is usually over here)
DFG (filler, AP, cooldown reduction + a free nuke = nice)
Voidstaff OR if im dying a lot, something that gives more mitigation or HP (filler)

I personally prefer to be able to get my ultimate off and survive afterwards to help chase down stragglers than die/be disabled before it finishes, especially in end game. Chalice is an amazing item, NEVER have mana issues on nunu with it, plus some MR for the low low price of 890g.

BTW been playing since closed beta, just never posted on the forums

If your game gets to "late game" you're doing it VERY VERY wrong.

lolwut? there are going to be games where the opposition is evenly matched, if not better. These games will drag on. Think before you post instead of trying to tough talk and making yourself look foolish.

Nunu AP builds without CD reduction make me sad

Gives uptime on Blood Boil, more health return from consume (faster farming too), almost constant slow with ice blast and who doesn't want more ults to abuse cleanse with?

Get Glacial Shroud/Frozen Core after boots/before your AP items (unless you are rushing Rod of Ages) and you won't regret it.

Compare his AP scaling abilities to the scaling of other 'AP' tanks.

All four of Cho'gath's abilities offensively express his AP Stat. Two of Sion's most potent abilities offensively express his AP stat. Amumu? Same story.

Nunu? You only have the ability to spam the heck out of your slow and occasionally hope to get your ultimate off.

AP Nunu is a monster mid game, but if you let the game get to the point where everybody is farmed, you're not going to be doing much damage.

Top tier games are often decided by lvl 1 fight at dragon.
