Is anyone else a bit disappointed in the lore for Nautilus? I understand that they wanted the exact process of his transformation to be mysterious, but I feel it goes too far and simply becomes vague. His whole revenge story also feels rather lackluster too me.

How many threads of this are we going to get?

To my knowledge, there is only one other thread on his lore, and that one questions his reasons for joining the league, not the entirety of the lore itself. If this is redundant, I apologize, but it seemed different enough to warrant another thread.

In my opinion, Nautlius' lore does seem to be a bit vague, but with their working on other champions [and hopefully even thinking about a new map (Note: this is not a spoiler. I have no clue if they're working on a map or not)], they don't have much time to write the incredible lore they used to

I really want to see him be tied in with some other champions like perhaps fizz or some other ocean dwelling champion. Nautilus is my favorite and i want lore skins AND THE WHOLE BIT.

I swear he has lore they just misplaced it. Its around here somewhere, maybe in the bottom of a lake or something.

His lore isn't really lore, more like a story a six-grader would write for homework....And I am being serious about it.

Once, Nautilus was a sailor commissioned by the Institute of War to explore the uncharted reaches of the Guardian’s Sea. This expedition took him deep into unknown waters where he and his crew found a vast section of the ocean’s rich blue waves were replaced by a black, oozing liquid that none of the crew could identify. Though their job was to investigate anything new that they found, no man aboard was willing to brave the murk except Nautilus. Only moments after he donned the hulking diver’s suit and climbed over the ship’s rail, something lurking in the muck grabbed hold of him. He clung to the side of the ship, but the thing below pulled him fiercely, rocking the entire ship. The other sailors grew afraid and made a terrible decision. As he stared and pled for help, they wrenched his grip free of the rail. He tumbled to the ink, grabbing the anchor in futile desperation. As he sank, he could do nothing but watch as the dark outline of his ship faded away. Then everything went black.

When Nautilus awoke, he was something different. The great iron suit was now somehow part of him, he could not tell where it ended and he began. All the details of his memory were fuzzy and indistinct but one fact remained clear: he was left here, alone in the sunless depths, to die. In his hands he still clutched the anchor that belonged to the men who had condemned him. Having no other purpose, he took this clue and trudged - too heavy to swim or run - in search of answers. He wandered without direction or sense of passing time in what felt like an eternal dream. By the time he stumbled upon the shores of Bilgewater, he could find no traces of the man he was. No house, no family, no life to which he could return. Terrified sailors who’d heard his tale directed Nautilus back to the Institute, but the summoners refused to relinquish the names of the others they commissioned. By then Nautilus had learned about the League of Legends and there he saw an opportunity to discover and punish those responsible for the time and life he lost.

You have high standards for sixth graders. And you're a monkey.

Well, if you're not satisfied, check this out. Before the accident, his suit looked sort of like a real life diving suit. Afterwards, it looks different. His background isn't telling the whole truth. I think the reason you're not satisfied is because you want the truth.

If it were actually written out though, that would spoil the story. It would be like skipping to the end of the book and reading that before reading the rest. That's no fun, suspense is important. At least for me, it keeps me interested and guessing.

Personal theory - the ooze that grabbed Naut is related to the Pit that Varus guarded, and may also be responsible for the disappearance of Fizz's people.

By ''six-grader'' I didn't mean by how it was written but what was written...

Personally? I feel that Nautilus was created from the ship that was attacked, supposedly by Noxus. The necromantic magic that was 'above the maximum allowed level' could easily have caused Nautilus to come into being, perhaps as some form of poltergeist inhabiting the suit, or something closer to Alphonse in Fullmetal Alchemist.
