Been trying this build just for fun and it seems very interesting

9/0/21 masteries
(15% m.pen)
(mana reg)
(9% cdr )

Stack spell vamp as much as you can , then rush for zhonya

+Good

Your E does good amount of damage and cleans waves of minios very fast while healing you a good portion of your health
Your Ult is absolutely devastating ( at 150 ap you have around +2-+3% of health as damage per sec ; also heals a good portion of your life )

-Bad

Very squishy ( spell vamp is a must , after that any ap/defensive item must be bought asap )

Strategy:
1) Combo - Slow + pop your ult and place a good E , after that your enemy is done for , no matter if hes a tank or not
2) In huge teamfight rush into the enemy team , pop your ult + zhonya - profit ( works well with mass cc's )

Nasus's ult does not life leach.

Its also capped. Now, at base %, the other champ does need like 5000 hp to hit the cap.
But focusing on ap for it, just doesn't make any sense. Also the ratio is about 100-1%. (Not exact, don't remember exact atm, its a bit under 100)

Hourglass, or abyssal are reasonable choices however after the typical, aegis/sheen.

(edit. ah, you are getting spell vamp for the leeching. missed that. aoe spell vamp is pretty terrible.)

For a champ that has to be right up in everyone's face to do any damage, the last thing I'd want to be building on him is straight AP - you need more defense/HP to pull that one off.

its fun.

Get a Rylai's though. It gives your ult a slow around it.
