As for how I like to play Nasus, I like going 21/9/0 with mana regen blues and yellows with a few dodge mixed in. I go tank items + youmuu's ghostblade as my dps item. I feel overall ghostblade is superior to sheen. Nasus is more a hybrid dps/tank than anything else.

I'm inclined to think that any person that says sheen is overrated on Nasus and that it doesn't add that much damage simply does not understand the mechanics of Sheen's Siphon Strike proc. Let me clear it up for you and if you still feel the same, then we can agree to disagree. But you're an idiot.

Sheen does 80% of your base damage on spell cast to your next attack. So whenever you use wither, SF, ult, sure, yeah... so at lvl 18 if you have a base damage of 116 (which you do) that's 92 extra damage. Wow that's pretty good considering you cast a lot of spells.

However, that's nothing outstanding. But that's not what I'm talking about when I say it procs with SS. What I'm saying here is this:

Maxed siphon strike does a standard of 110 extra damage, plus your +2 for every last hit. Let's be real conservative here and say you last hit 50 creeps. That's 100 more damage. That's 210 damage. That damage is counted as base damage. That means it's 210 more damage to go into your sheen's calculation. That means your effective base damage is now 116+210 = 326. Now take your 80% of 326 = 260. That's the extra damage sheen just gave you. Every SS. Which has a CD of 5 seconds, assuming you have no CDR from golem or frozen heart. 326 without sheen. 586 with sheen. It **** near DOUBLES your siphon strike, which has unlimited potential for growth, and it costs like 1250.

Let's be more aggressive with our calculation and say you got 100 last hits. That's 110 base bonus + 200 from last hits + 116 base dmg = 426 siphon strike. 80% of that is 340. You just added 340 damage by having sheen and are Siphon Striking for 766 dmg.

Hopefully you just didn't understand the calculation.

Otherwise you are plain bat **** crazy if you don't think it's a worthwhile item.

You could also think about it this way: essentially instead of adding +2 dmg every time you get a SS last hit, you are adding +3.6.
