I've recently started playing Nasus as more of a DPS/Off-tank role. I've looked at a couple of guides and for the most part my item list goes in the way of Berserkers Greaves, Malady, Trinity Force, Banshee's Veil, and finally if I still have time or the money i get Phantom Dancer.

However, I don't really know how to set up my masteries or my rune page. I'm only lvl 11 so my masteries isn't that big of a deal but I do want to know for future reference. My rune page is what concerns me most. I have a crazy mix of armor pen., health, cd reduction, attack speed, and others. Any tips or advice would be helpful.

When I play him for damage I use armor pen / CD reduction runes.

I'll be the first to admit I'm not the best player ever, so take that with a grain of salt. CD reduction is awesome on Nasus because it allows you to pump up your siphon strike that much more.

Get the golum buff as much as possible too.

my friends keep saying that i have 1500 mins on NASUS. so here are my input. Get Sheen. period. it makes ur spyhon strike that more deadly. I just stick with Crits on runes n attack on masteries. But what you should def go for is picking out which summoner spells u use the most. I use exhaust the most therefore i have a mastery on exhaust which improves it by allowing the victum to have -25 armor and magic resist. if you use heal get the heal mastery. and etc. I use crits cause i go for Nasus DPS mode. his Ult just makes u an instant Tank/DPS *****. but no matter what items u buy SHEEN is a must for the spyhon attack.

There may be, I'm not sure, but you can definitely get it up around 70-80 percent.

Check out the Nasus - Out for Blood guide. He's squishy as hell but if you're attacking something you'll gain your entire health bar back almost instantly. Not the most effective build ever but pretty funny. Crazy damage too.
