So I tried Cho in a few bot games. He is fun and was really good......until annie built 40 magic pen + aby scepter + void staff. >> that little........oh and sivir had last whisper + IE + bloodthirster with it. Did I mention the other bots were alistar and malphite? I'll keep cho in mind but something with a better escape plan would be nice. T_T

Let me revise my statement. Nunu is broken, but he should be used in other areas. Obviously, if you send him top, he would go some kind of AP/Tank build. Nunu has infinite sustain with his passive + consume, and free harass with his snowball. In todays top lane meta, you usually want to have some kind of tanky bruiser who can deal damage and surive. If you have a Nunu, who's only damage are his ult and snowball, a support, and a tanky jungler, your only damage are your carries. Nunu always wins lane. But sometimes, winning lane isn't the only concern for a top laner.

Your laning partner will most likely always be backed up to his/her own turret. If they try to cs, they get snowballed and have to back out. If they actually do any damage to nunu, he just consumes a minion. Nunu is great in 1v1 situations, but isn't very useful. You may have the easiest laning phase ever, but noone is going to be scared of you late game

A while ago, I tried out AP nunu mid (because I saw Salce do it) and I think I had the easiest time ever in my laning phase. I zoned out a Zyra, Annie, Cass, and even Kassadin, with ease. But I found that I had absolutely 0 kill potential and was practically useless in teamfights.
And this is why lux/ez bot is op. You can get some ridiculously powerful top laners designed for early game dominance while still having great damage in teamfights.

If you are looking for the whole shield thing, I like Pantheon and Malphite. Pantheon is a bit risky but I play really aggressively so it usually works out for me.
