Btw, chalice is not even close to necessary on Nasus. Spec correctly and with t3 mana reg runes you'll be fine.
Tank can be summarized in 2 roles

To keep people back
To initiate.

Nasus being the former.
And Malphite being the later.

You really shouldn't be nasus if you don't have someone to initiate for you.

This post is confusing. Are you agreeing with me or what?

I think in general most teams should be comprised of 2 tank/off tanks and 2 ranged DPS/casters and 1 Support. So, having a Nasus fits well into the tank category

Nasus is pretty good at drawing fire, considering his ult is a big 'Kill me first' signal to the other team.

Thus moar HP, unless your plan involves dying or your team has ludicrous amounts of CC available.

you corrected correct info with incorrect info.

siphon strike can crit.

with sheen, siphon and crit damage all in one strike, i would say it benefits a lot. thanks for being contrary though...

and to correct your incorrect info: you will only die without a tank item if you are bad at playing this game or nasus. with his passive life steal, and his ultimate, he is much much stronger than most of the heroes in this game... why would you then need tank items to survive?

any hero with life steal as a passive implies attack damage/speed. but many people are clueless about item builds in this game, im sure someone would tell me to build a tank sion or warwick or udyr...

*Sigh* Siphoning strike does not crit. The static bonus damage and the 2 per kill bonus damage does not get multiplied on an attack. Neither does Sheen. Only your base AD and item AD get the benefit of crit. That's all I'll say about that.

And about your point about dieing. It is true that I am a bad player, but lifesteal isn't going to save you from getting bursted down. Running in without any hp item at all is going to spell death for you. You need maybe one tank item, more if you are main tank (which Nasus is sub optimal).
