Hey all! I'm looking to use Nasus as a carry, but I don't know what do for item build. Assuming I get Sheen, Berserker's Boots, and a Vampiric Scepter, where should I go from there?

Thanks!

This is a very solid build. I usually go sheen, Merc, Infinity, Starks, then from there doesn't matter. Get some basic survivability such as aegis of the legion if u wanna be an aura *****, banshees is ALWAYS good, GA is always good, etc.

nasus attack speed = cooldown cuz siphoning strike is all that matters. you are burst damage. if you want "attack speed" get something that reduces cooldown.

Okay, thanks for the input. For someone named "inept," you seem to have an idea on how the game works. =P

I generally run a build something like:

1) vamp scepter
2) merc treads
3) sheen
4) finish bloodthirster
5) finish triforce
6) infinity edge
7) if the game is somehow still going, generally something defensive like Banshee's Veil

I really like this build for high end game Nasus, because it gives really big Siphon hits. Triforce is really crucial, imo, because it gives that 150% extra base on Siphoning strikes, over the 100% of Sheen. In addition to that, it also gives extra movement speed, which is always great.

Why people dont get Tiamat on Nasus is beyond me.

1500 cleaving siphon strike crits is crazy.

I prefer Ghostblade over IE. Sure adds so much more damage however Ghostblade has the CDR, ArPen, and the awesome active with a small bit of crit.

Actual Build:

(Sheen)
BV
Sunfire
Triforce
Stark's
Merc treads
Blood Thirster or Atma's Impaler

Hilarious build:
Sheen
RoA
Lich Bane
Deathcap
Sorc Shoes
Abyssal Scepter
Zhonya's Hourglass

Because siphon strike proccing lich bane is HILARIOUS
