I'd like to know!

The options are the 3 most complained about things about Nasus.

1. People can just walk out of it, slow cast time

2. base health, health regen, mana regen etc.,

3. Pertains to the Q.

Definitely the Q.

It's worth noting that his W is the best slow in the game as well.

He has low mobility.

As much as I hate to say it, his infinitely stacking Q.

Because it is potentially infinitely powerful, the rest of his kit has to be scaled back so that he has to have a miracle match up to farm it. Give it a cap, and allocate the sacrificed power to the rest of his kit - perhaps even boost his range, a little bit?

I like to farm for 40 minutes then automatically win the game, Riot please don't make Nasus a strong and competitive champ throughout the entire match.

The potential for infinite scaling means that he needs to be infinitely terrible at some earlier phase in the game.

Cap his Q.

Then he can be balanced.

Agreed on W. It pretty much goes "Hey, you're done auto attacking".

I know his Q could very well be a problem as well, but I mean if we can have someone like Darius with a refreshing true damage ultimate (which sounds ridiculous on paper of course) I'm sure there can be a way for Nasus to retain his infinite power. Possibly decrease the damage per kill while lowering CD?
