So I was thinking about picking up Nautilus and I was wondering how viable he is as say, a tanky AP mid or top building items such as RoA,deathcap,rylais,etc.

he's actually a really versatile champ, i've seen him as anything from full tank to a support.

Agreed. Neither Frozen Mallet nor Rylais really is that great on him though. idk. They don't mesh with him. I would get em just cause they provide health.

I can't really say about how viable it is at high levels of play, but I've gone against an AP nautilus a few times in mid and also in bot lane for dominion, and he pretty much destroys mages. His natural tank stats + runes + shield ability allow him to not take too much damage... and when he builds AP, his attacks hit surprisingly hard.
At 6, if he ults you he's guaranteed to land Q + E + some shield-buffed autoattacks + ignite also.


To above people: of course you don't go full AP if you're playing him as jungle/support.

But yeah, speaking from experience, a lot of mages can't really handle him.

I haven't experimented with more heavy AP builds with him, but from my experiences a Wits End goes a long way on him.

Well could anyone that owns Nautilus play him as an AP mid and report results?
